Might as well get it started. Who's looking forward to it? I personally think that it could beat PS5, that is if they don't screw up. They need a basic UI, more first party titles, and focus only on gaming. They own the license to Rare games, we need to see new Conkers, Perfect Dark, Banjo Kazooie, etc. They did alright with Killer Instinct, I'll give them that, but they're sitting on a lot of games that needs remade, remastered, and sequels.
As far as I know, it's slightly more powerful than the PS5, which isn't a big deal. But what is a big deal is that it will come with more storage. XBSX will have 1TB, which I admit, is not much by today's standards. The PS5 will have 825GB, which is ridiculous. I'm guessing that the next gen games will be around 100gb or more in size on average. If that is the case, I expect the discs will be on 4k UHD blu-rays.

Not the small ones that actually pay their employees well. Once they get big and pay out their CEO's 10s of millions of dollars for failing while firing 10s of thousands that actually make the company money. Then they are evil. Basically once wall street and vulture capitalist pigs come in and suck all of the wealth for the rich and who gives two fudges what actually happens to human beings, then yes, it's evil.

Looks like Jedi Fallen Order is coming to Game Pass Ultimate via EA Play on 11/10. Now that's a strategic move to go inline with the XSX release.

Ya that's crazy they sent out the controllers and such early. Wonder how long it's going to take us to download all the games, or copy from disc to SSD.

They just sent me an email saying I will get it by December 31st, and that they have to wait for more inventory over the next few weeks to a month. So it sounds like even though they sold out of their pre-orders instantly, they still over sold them. I got that crap locked in as soon as it went live on the first day. And I'm still not getting one on time. smh

"Tonight between 10PM and Midnight (est) Microsoft will finalize the purchase of the entire gaming catalogue from Konami. The deal they've been working towards is so expensive for Microsoft that it will single-handed fund a new manufacturing facility Konami has been wanting build to focus on new R&D for gambling devices. Microsoft will have to keep paying royalties back to Konami on all games that Konami originally released, including future remasters. Only new games, made from the ground up, will be fully profitable for Microsoft. Konami will also retain the rights to create new gambling hardware based on any previously adult (M-rated) themed game they've released. In the deal Microsoft will be able to select a team from potential layoff employees after the sale to help found a studio in Chou City. Konami will allow for the current "Xbox Games Studios Tokyo" as a satellite office for 12-18 months on the second floor of their current headquarters in Chou City while Microsoft finalizes their plans to move to, or construct, their own studio space."

Maybe. Maybe not. MS has been trying to build up their Asian fan base hard-core I heard lately. If they buy the rights to many beloved franchises Konami owns and do remakes or new entries in their series and what not, it will lock down most markets around the globe.

You should be able to get a PS5 on Thursday when everyone starts taking online orders again. From my understanding, most retailers will have decent stock. But it might take a week to fulfill the order.

So it seems that Smart delivery could save gamers some serious SSD space. Sea of Thieves on SerX is 47GB while it's only 17GB on the SerS. That's key since the SerS has such a smaller amount of space to begin with. That's almost 2/3rds space savings; other titles are showing space savings as well.

That does not surprise since the games are not really tuned for the increased speed of the drives. I expect to see more of a difference with actual next gen games.

Ya we already knew that MS had a hard-on for backwards compatible games, and Sony was focused on next gen. If the Xbox has a couple seconds on PS4/X1 games that's really no issue.

First impression of the Series X. I really like the shape. It's more squareish than a straight up rectangle, so it feels really stable sitting vertically and still fits perfectly on my shelf with vertical room to spare (and tons of horizontal room). It fits really easily in terms of form factor. That'll be necessary since my PS5 will need a lot of room come Thursday.

My guess is the last gen games are not optimized for the the SSD. MS puts more time in that. Going forward but would not expect that to be the norm after all the PS5 SSD is nearly twice as fast.


Also, just installing the update... The XSX is smaller then I would have thought. I like it. The controller seems to be better built then the one from last gen, also a bonus.

Ok, I will say I like the UI more so the. On the XBox One, and a few things remind me of the PS4 UI... But it's still cluttered with adds and I really hate the games and apps folder. I wish I could make custom folders and sort my games that way. And why do I have to download an app to play movies still? It's an improvement but so far I am liking the console itself and I just need to spend time with it.

You can. When looking at all games, hit the 'start' hamburger button and add to a group, you can create a group right then. Get all installed games into groups then there will be a groups menu under the apps/games section and you can order the groups and pin the groups to the 'home'.

Only minor drawback is groups are limited to I think 40 games/apps when they're pinned to the home, more than 40 won't appear, but that shouldn't be an issue unless you've got GP and just basically installed everything - but you'd also need more storage than 1-2TB.

They could easily have put the same UI on the older systems; just greediness on Sony and Microsoft's parts.

I am glad they did not with the PS4, honestly I don't care for cluttered UI's. MS wants to put the most they can on the screen, I want something that is rather minimalistic. I am not sure what to think of the PS5's.. I guess I will have to wait until next week.

I am also hoping this is not a thing but I noticed. That the BluRay drive was rather loud, I don't recall the X1X being like that. Just watched Ender's Game 4k and had to turn up the TV more than usual to kinda drown it out.

I am waiting for Halo to download so I won't be able to play tonight, but at least so far the Console does not heat up like an oven raspberry

Alright. I got a chance to play the Series X a bit. I started off with Forza Horizon 4, which looks beautiful. I'm not a racing person really, but I might just play through that whole game for the scenery. I also played through the first stage of Battletoads. I enjoy beat 'em ups from time to time. The art style is interesting, but the humor was more miss than hit for me so far. Through it all, the Series X stayed whisper quiet for me. It doesn't seem to have gotten too hot so far either. Load times do seem pretty quick, but I hadn't played either before so I'm not sure how much quicker they were over my old One X. All in all, I'm pretty happy with the system.

My Arctic 7xs are still charging, so I can't say much about sound yet, but I tried them on and they're easily the most comfortable headphones I've ever worn.

Horizon 4 was horribly slow to load up initially, takes well over a minute. It was so bad that I generally wouldn't change games once I started it, keeping it active as long as possible to avoid it's slow boot. It's a game I would certainly seek to keep in the quick resume list once I get a SerX.
