No, give us the console, wait 3 or 4 years and give us a slim.

If you don’t want it don’t buy it. It’s not hurting anyone by giving us an optional mid gen upgrade.

I agree, why would you care if it doesn't affect you. The pro and x1 models had no effect on the games released on the base models.

I would argue that it does actually affect owners of the original consoles. Since the release of the Pro and X, there have been a number of games that have been optimised to run on those consoles, but suffer as a result on standard consoles.

Jedi: Fallen Order is the most recent that I am aware of. The lag and drop in FPS on the standard models makes some sections of the game much harder and more frustrating on those consoles than on the Pro and X.

That’s not because of mid generation consoles though, It’s because base consoles are getting more outdated and weaker by the day. Mid generation consoles are there to help improve framerates and resolution while the generation pans out.
