I am one of these idiots who buys consoles on launch day every time.
Hopefully we‘ll get 100% backwards compatibility and not only a limited catalogue like on xbox one.

some info in here

- footprint is approx as wide as an x1 controller and as tall as three
- supposedly just as quiet as x1x
- controller has a share button ::)
- x1 controllers work on the new console, xsx controllers also work on x1 and pc
- has an NVMe SSD
- can use instant resume on multiple games

The Xbox One console runs on an operating system that includes the Windows 10 core, although initially it included the Windows 8 core at the Xbox One's release.

Absolute bottom-tier naming convention, on par with Nintendo thinking it was a good idea to follow up the Wii with the Wii U.

The original OG XBOX was a BBW beefcake and a fucking ugly fat hog and I love that design. Beefbox is  back!  I expect access to my library of 600 games, and game pass, if I get it at launch.

I'm happy and excited. Don't give a shit about naming conventions or gimmicks. I expect the PS5 to be pretty similar to this.

OH!

More seriously though at least from the more multiside view it seems more like a desktop case rather than a console.

Nah.

Xbox One's reveal and strategy as a console almost killed Xbox in the span of a year. It is not debatable that Xbox One initially was PS3 reveal bad if not worse. It took years and tons of resources for Xbox One to be salvaged.

This new Xbox will be a powerful box to play games on. The PS5 will be a powerful box to play games on. It'll come down to software preferences, software features, and whether or not someone wants VR with their console (PS5 being the only choice).

It's really fucking nice that Xbox X is gonna be a dedicated gaming console. It's not a cable box/Kinect or motion control/ride the wave box.

FACT CHECK:
We also designed Xbox Series X to support both vertical and horizontal orientation. It’s bold and unique, very much like our fans around the world and the team of collaborators and innovators who built it.

I just meant naming wise. It's Wii U tier. Xstans are going to be working overtime next gen explaining why it's a good name. ::)

Console wise, it's gotta have something to get back the people who went PS4 this gen. Not sure if it has any special sauce there, looks like another plastic box with an X on it. I suppose if you care about POWAH it's attractive tho.

One of the things we’re most proud of with Xbox Series X is the promise we’re delivering to our fans who have and continue to invest with Xbox. Thanks to backward compatibility, you can expect your gaming legacy, thousands of your favorite games across four generations of gaming, all your Xbox One gaming accessories, and industry-leading services like Xbox Game Pass to be available when you power on your Xbox Series X in Holiday 2020.

This strategy is also very Wii U esque. :thinking

One Console, Four Generations of Gaming

Funny how this is how I envisioned PS4 back in the day (2012 - 2013) - that it will allow to play PS1, 2 and 3 games with BC.

The Dream is dead. Thanks Sony.

For reference this is only talking about what's currently BC. Whether more BC games get added after release remains to be seen, but you won't be able to pop in Jet Set Radio Future and expect it to work

Yes, providing something valuable to people such as the ability to play games from the entire library of consoles is totally something out if the Wii-U playbook.

Being a professional games forum poster, what Microsoft should've done is release a motion controlled pogo stick with always online required bounce capability. Also, don't fuss around with BC, I only want Xbox Pogo games pls.

If I didn’t already have an X and game pass forever I’d probably do the monthly/service option that includes upgrade to new one next year.

Curious to see how it shakes out, they are winning over a lot of enthusiasts with How they’ve handled game pass but not sure if it’s translating to mainstream tbh.

if MS are smart, it'll be base model modular PC that runs a big screen mode of windows 10 (with full library compatibility), swappable components that are even more distinguished mentally-challenged fellow proof than modern PC parts (like N64 RAM pack tier complexity) and also register with the OS so the game settings scale automatically.

It does feel tailored entirely to enthusiasts. With game pass, it makes buying the console at launch alluring due to instant access to a lot of games and any first party launch games.

If Halo is ready to go at launch, all a lot of people would need is the console itself and game pass. Being able to use Xbone controllers too, you wouldn't need to buy an extra controller for local co op or multiplayer.

This will be the first console launch where you can walk out of the store with a console/controller bundle and be set with everything else.

Dunno if I'll get it at launch, probably not unless some place is offering a good trade in deal on the x1x
