Lower specs and digital only.
Still think I’ll go for the Series X because I still have quite a few physical games.
Backwards compatible with select Xbox Original, 360 and all Xbox One games.
The multiple services Microsoft is offering. Which makes it a Switch you can play on ANYTHING.
I think the best part of the Xbox Series X is you don't have to buy it. Microsoft even said it themselves. Their more focused on making Xbox more than a console, but a platform. Because alot of the games are coming to PC, XCloud, Xbox One, and some games like Psychonauts 2 are coming to other platforms. Even if you don't buy the console, Microsoft makes money at the end of the day.
Yeah but 12 teraflops
Its like blast processing but floppier!
It's official: Xbox Series X to cost $499, and here's when you can buy one
So correct me if I'm wrong but are both the X-Box Series x and X-Box Series X are backwards compatible? Just wanting to know if there's any difference.
You mean the Xbox Series S?
Yes they are both BC. But the Xbox Series S is digital only.
Microsoft poker hand was perfect on price point for both skus, just sucks it was leaked a week before it was ready to be announced think Phil knew what Sony was going to drop price wise on their two skus, gamepass ultimate got a huge boost with EA play with no extra charge, just hope Phil has a couple more cards up their sleeves.
Series S is backwards compatible but it’s limited to whatever games you can get digitally given that there is no disc drive.
So basically it's a Switch Lite.
One very specifically lower spec is the SSD: 512GB. Yeah, because developers have really been about efficient use of space for the past decade /s
The next Modern Warfare sequel is about to take up all of that space for just the base game if it’s anything like last year’s game
Why does Activision always make COD games, that take up most of the goddamn hard drive.
Some of it is the eventual push to 4K as a standard. Higher quality anything: audio, image, video etc requires more space. Some of it is also them being sloppy with optimisation now that on PC, storage is cheap.
Xbox Reveals Good News About Series X SSD Expansion Cards
No price of the 1TB card though atm. But going off the Xbox One's 1TB drive...i see this going for at least $200.
No, because a Switch Lite isn't digital only.
There was a Gamestop (?) leak with a $220 price tag for a 1TB SSD.
The Xbox price:
The PS5 price:
Just a comparison.
Not an entirely accurate comparison, given that the only difference between the 2 PS5 specs is the drive while for the Xbox there's a power differential
Yeah, but I did feel I should compare them before they come out.
Stupid question but is this thing still going to work with USB external hard drives?
Separate names with a comma.
