I’ve been an Xbox fan since the Dreamcast dream ended and the Xbox era dawned. My game collecting has fluctuated over the years. But back in 2013 I collected all the “Day One 2013” branded Xbox items I could find I was flung into the amazing world of Xbox One… and I loved it.
A couple of years into the Xbox One’s life, I was enjoying the system so much that I had the crazy thought of collecting the complete set (I mean, how many physical games get released anyway?). So I looked all over the net for a list of physically released games and fellow Xbox One collectors… and am still looking to this day.
So here I am! On Xbox Era with a custom Excel Spreadsheet (where I attempt to track Xbox One physical releases) and a collection of Xbox One games that I love playing.
Physical games may be getting edged out by digital… but either way I have one hell of a launch library for the Xbox Series X!
Some facts to start the thread off:
Xbox One physical games (that I know of - approximately): 757
Xbox One physical games scheduled to be released (approximately): 150
Xbox One physical games that I own: 374 (49% of all released physical games).
Yeah, console collecting is space (and money) expensive.
I mainly focus on collecting games but I was very tempted by the Minecraft Xbox One S - not because I’m a huge Minecraft fan, just because it looked amazing.
I’m still rocking my Day One Xbox One OG and the Project Scorpio Xbox One X.
Since I went pretty much all digital with Xbox One, I only collect 360 games as they’re so cheap now. So much amazing games sitting in the 360 store that never go on sale or will never make it to BC. Also want to pick them all up before that skyrocket in price.
I used to be an avid collector of games. I had (and still have) over 300 NES games but gave up on tyring to collect them all. At one point I also had about 200 Playstation games, around 100 PS2, Xbox and Dreamcast games apiece, and i currently still have North of 100 360 games. When I bought a house and decided to get married I sold off the majority of my collection. And I decided to go all digital for the XOne and Ps4. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss having all those games, but oh well.
Out of curiosity, do you collect multiple versions of the same game? Like, the base game and the collector’s edition?
Yeah, I doubt I’ll ever get the complete set, but the games sitting on my shelves do “bring me joy” so to speak so I’ll keep chipping away at it.
Also the fun of getting the lower print games, like physical versions I have of:
Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3
Firefighters: The Simulation
Ducati 90th anniversary
Though I am thankful it’s not a Switch/PS4 situation where seemingly hundreds of games are released monthly!
Not going for all variants, I have a self maintained list of each game and tick them off no matter which version I get. The idea being if I started my Xbox account again, could I replay the game? There are a couple of variants I have for DLC for games I love… Like Destiny.
Great thread. The only thing I collect in regards to Xbox One are the controllers (official MS releases only), I have most of them, started with Titanfall. I can’t find the Arctic Camo which was a recent release. Surprised it hasn’t been restocked.
I have a decent physical collection even though as of lately I’ve been leaning a lot more towards digital. I’ll still be getting physical copies of the games I love to play, but for the most part digital is perfectly fine. I go back and forth between wanting to sell my collection or to keep it.
