Xbox One S is worth it IMO. Destiny 2, however, will never touch my Xbox due to the awful way Bungie started handling their DLC/Expansions from TTK onward...
I prefer to just play video games rather than worry about which platform/s they release on or how many pixels are on the screen.

XB1S is a really solid piece of tech compared to the original XB1. If it's not costing you extra money go for it.

Yea it looks cool and my OG Xbox is kind of loud, has trouble connecting on my apartment's wifi, and the power brick is annoying because it doesn't really fit behind the TV stand. I was looking to upgrade with a nicer console and also refresh my controllers, since the original ones are pretty bad (poor quality, crappier bumpers, etc).

I'm thinking I can trade in my Xbox and controllers for like $100~ and then spend a $100 gift card, and the rest I'd pay out in cash, so probably $100 for the whole kit

Well, I hope yours is the only profile that you will want to have access to any of the content because Bungie limits it solely to the account that purchased the DLC or redeemed the code... No other Gamertags (even on the SAME CONSOLE) can play it without purchasing their own copy...

I mean at this point I'd suggest just saving up a little more and getting a 1X in a few months. They S is nice especially if you're in the market for a 4K Blu Ray but at this point I feel you'd get a better investment out of the 1X

Bulls***. The base game and first two expansions are shareable but from The Taken King onward is not. I've been round and round with both Bungie and Xbox Support for the past three days on this. Bought TTK for my son to play under my account and he can't access under his. Defeats the whole purpose of parental controls if my account needs to be logged in for him to access it...

Is the Xbox set as your home Xbox? I don't remember having this issue with my fiancé before she bought it herself.
