Hello, the Xbox One S seems to be a no brainer if you game and want an UHD Blu-Ray player. I was wondering if the Xbox One S can store movies (say the legal ones you download) onto the internal HDD? Or do you have to use an external/usb drive for them?

There is no way to store movies on the internal drive. You will need to use your computer to put the movies on the external drive, then connect it to the XBox to watch them.

Ah, thanks for the help. No reason to buy the bigger storage one.
I'd say it depends on how much you plan to go with digital downloads for games. Some of the games are around 50GB each, so if you plan to download and keep a lot of games, the 500GB model might be a squeeze for you.

I tend to buy on disc then sell the game after I have finished, and I delete it from the drive. So space is not much of an issue for me.
