Do old games have to be on the internal drive to benefit from auto HDR/FPS boost?
Nah. Its not "enhancements" exactly. I think you'll still need to be on the ssd for load time improvements.

Dishonoured DE loading times are so quick you can press a to progress before you have time to even read the loading screen hints.

There is apparently going to be a small Series X drop this week, but sounds like walk ins only. I'm going to have to wait until I can nab one online.
Here's hoping we get some updates/heads up before they drop. Very keen. I wonder if places will take a deposit via phone for later pick up. I work 40 mins away from the nearest BigW or JB etc.

This is going to sound like a dumb question.
I want to buy a hard drive.

So can I use any portable hard drive.
Do the games run straight off them or does it need to be installed on the Xbox first to play them.

Series X games will need to be transferred from your external to the internal to play. Last gen you can play off the external.

You can play them off of the Xbox Seagate SSD card though.

Actually some older titles with series x enhancements can be played off a had as aren't able to use all the resources available... I'm not sure there's a way to check it easily tho

Lucky. I've been refreshing for hours since I read they were stocking it and no luck lol. About 15 minutes ago the button went green but the configuration page said out of stock. I'll keep trying.
