Yeah, don't trade in your slim. The E is definitely a downgrade.

Cellphone marketing tactics really f***ed with people's heads didn't it?

Always making people think they've just gotta have the latest version of something without thinking or researching the new version before plunking down that money.

be aware though that it is missing an optical out so no gaming headphones. however there is a very easy fix to that just plug them into your tv and your golden.

Sorry, but no.

TVs typically only output 2 channel audio, even through optical, so if you have a surround sound headset, you're ****ed on the surround sound aspect.

However, there are converters that will take an HDMI input and output HDMI and 5.1 optical audio.

I'm not sure what type of tv you have but on my samsung the optical out port is definitely surround sound. I used to have it go to my receiver, that gave me 5.1 surround sound.

Why do you want to trade in your slim for this?

The system as a whole has always confused me. It's the same price too right? So new design to match the XB1 a little better and then take away features? Biggest WTF thing is taking out the optical audio in a system that supports surround sound. Yes you can use HDMI but many receivers aren't set up for that.
