XBox One S Release Period

When will XBox One S be released in Singapore?

I could not find the bundle pricing for it on the XBox Singapore website.

Dunno, I got one of my US friend to buy from his neighborhood friend store for $199 USD halo edition.

Singapore probably chop carrot.

So you also bought a step-down transformer for the US-version XBox One S?

It's multi-volt, 100~240V integrated power supply unit for the S unlike the external power brick of the old version. Here's a pic http://imgur.com/up3Yt1C from someone.

The new controller for the S is better than the old version too.

Hmm...

I just placed an order for an Xbox One (500GB) from Xbox Singapore for my dad because his 2nd-hand Xbox 360 was dead (3 flashing lights) all of a sudden. I could not believe it when I saw the discounted price (S$309) with a FIFA 2017 included.

Anyway, is it possible to buy an Xbox One game from eBay or Amazon and be compatible for the new console? Or is it region-locked again?

I guess they are clearing current stocks to make way for the new console?

OK. I also checked out the game store on the Xbox Singapore website. Can I get physical game copies from there? Or only digital copies?

Will the US XBox One S be able to play locally purchased XBox games?

If I remember correctly, all the physical game copies are region-free. If you buy off the online store (digital copies), then they are region-locked.

OK. I found a weird thing yesterday while I was configuring the Xbox One.

I need to install Halo Wars into the HDD before I can play it even though I have the DVD inside the console?

The installation process is damn slow for the FIFA 17 as it downloads from the Internet.

This is weird. So I can play the game without the disc in the future?

halo wars is a backwards compatible game, you are actually downloading a copy of the game with the emulator + wrapper so that it is playable on the xbox one. the disc is for proving you own the game.

as for fifa 17, u still need the disc to play. this applies to all retail disc games.

The FIFA 17 is a digital copy. The file size is 33.1GB.

It took me 1 day to complete the download/installation. I can play the game as long as I am logged into my Microsoft account.

For Halo Wars, you cannot save the game if you are not logged in.
