The price of the Xbox One S has been around for some time in a never-ending downward spiral. It's high time that we took a look at the price development of Microsoft's low-cost home console as part of the price decline. GIGA clarifies who is worth buying the Xbox One S for.
Xbox One S: Microsoft's home console goes on sale
It can go so fast. For the market launch, Microsoft still wanted to have around 360 euros for the new Xbox One S, now the current best price of the home console at 169 euros - can be found on Ebay. Please note that the sold models are exhibitors and as interesting as the SugarHouse offer. According to the seller, the consoles are new, only the original packaging is no longer dewy.
If that is not enough, he has to take about 40 euros more into his hands right now. For 208.16 euros you get on Ebay a brand new device * sent directly to your home. But who takes a look at the price history of the console, will notice - that's even cheaper:
Xbox One S: Who is the purchase worth?
Playstation Vs. Xbox - sometimes you get the feeling that this conflict is as old as humanity itself. Ultimately, everyone has to decide for themselves. Sony and Microsoft offer different outstanding exclusive titles for their consoles. If you really want to play Halo or Forza , you can go to Xbox, fans of God of War or Uncharted would rather look for a deal for the PlayStation 4 .
Otherwise, it also plays an important role for many players, what a console their friends own - because cross-console crossplay is so far only possible in the fewest games. What the Xbox One S has in front of the Sony consoles: It can be used as a 4K Blu-ray player.
On the subject: Everyone wants Crossplay, it is not so easy - or is it?
If you've been thinking about buying an Xbox One S for a while, you should be patient. We expect that the Xbox One S could be drastically reduced soon again - a price of about 150 euros seems realistic. Last but not least, because Microsoft has announced at this year's E3 first information on the new Xbox Project Scarlett . After such an announcement usually fall the prices for the current console models.
Bargain hunters may be looking for additional peripherals to prepare for the console purchase: Replacement controllers and a few rechargeable batteries are a good place to start.

Initially, the Xbox One came on the market without any backward compatibility. Over the past few years, Microsoft has now made over 570 old titles on the Xbox One - and sometimes even improved. In June 2019, the last update of backward compatibility was released.
As far as Backwards Compatibility (BC ) is concerned, Microsoft clearly relies on Nintendo and Sony's competition in this generation of consoles, similar to the use of the Tropicana casino promotional code. So you can buy every backward compatible title digitally on the Xbox One, but you do not have to, if you still own the original DVD.
In mid-2015, Microsoft launched the offensive to make the games of the Xbox 360 on the Xbox One running. At the end of 2017, the Redmond company went one step further: back to their first home console, the original Xbox. For the E3 2019 in June, the first final update was released, which once again made a whole handful of Xbox and Xbox 360 games compatible with the Xbox One. A total of 577 titles of the two previous console generations are now playable on the One. Now the team, which has dealt with the backward compatibility of the Xbox One, should deal with the next Microsoft console, Project Scarlett.
If you own the Xbox or 360 game as a physical disk or digitally purchased it on the Xbox 360, you can also use it on the Xbox One. For the physical versions you simply insert the DVD, whereupon the Xbox One should offer you the adapted version of the game as a download. The DVD serves only as proof that the game is really in your possession. You will not be asked to pay a second time.

Venom, a leading UK provider of quality gaming accessories, announced today the shipping of the Vertical Charging Stand in white, a multi-functional accessory designed for use with Xbox One S and Xbox One X consoles, available across Europe starting today.
Perfectly complementing the Xbox One S’s glacier white hardware, the Vertical Charging Stand features an understated design which neatly secures the gamers’ console in an upright position, saving space and protecting against damage. In addition, the Vertical Charging Stand comes complete with two high-quality rechargeable Battery Packs, which blend seamlessly with both regular and Elite controllers and provide up to 18 hours of gameplay combined.
When finished gaming, gamers simply slot their controllers into the dock on the stand, and the rechargeable Battery Packs automatically charge, even when the console is in standby. Should gamers wish to charge or power up additional devices, two Micro USB ports are also provided.
The all-in-one accessory from Venom even includes discrete storage for up to six Xbox games, ideal for keeping order of the gamers’ entire eco-system of hardware and software.
Kelly Rist, Marketing Manager for Venom, commented, “Venom are always looking for new ways to simplify and add value to gamers’ setups, and the Vertical Charging Stand is the ideal example of convenience and value. Keeping console, controllers and software neatly arranged reduces clutter and ensures that replacement batteries are a thing of the part, good for wallets and for the environment. We think Xbox gamers will be impressed with the value on offer.”
