I think Xbox should come up with an answer for the Sony's magnificent DualSense® controller. Otherwise they're going to shoot themselves on their own foot. I wouldn't mind if Microsoft comes with a revised controller with haptic feedback. Especially with multi-platform titles there should be an incentive for developers to properly adopt and implement haptic feedback.

I love mine. Honestly the biggest issue, even though it hasn't effected me, is the lack of stock for people. None of my mates got one and, while we can still play together cross gen, gaming is a social concept a lot of the time and I want them to enjoy the new console too.

I own them both, i like the Series S better, cause of it's size an the graphics upscaling is on par. 👉🏽 both r equals to me besides specs that it will probably never push this generation

The sheer lack of launch day games is a killer It's the first time I've bought a new console and had nothing new to play. Sports games are pointless and Assassin creed hasnt changed since the first one. So id say "slim pickings" is an understatement

I'm assuming the guy who hyped up the xbox series x controller has never used another controller ever in his life lol at least not pro controllers and not the ps5 controller.

Dunno how he managed to log his profile so quickly. Mine took over an hour. Both the app & the series x would not accept my password. I logged out of the One X & back in with the same password, had to change it in the end, but still had to enter the same details nearly 30 times before series x accepted it. And the app wouldn’t login until the console had

3:50 wtf does he mean. You can totally turn the console off and resume a game from where you left off on ps5. You could do that on the psp. My phone does that.
ShadowakaBigG - 6 dager siden
you can't have two games open on any other console is what he means. Not about quickly resuming a game you just minimized, but being able to have two games open and running and quickly switching between the two. It's honestly a feature I couldn't care less about lol

Pointless until there's a game on it. PS5 now, xbox for when Halo and the medium come out. i'm in no rush to upgrade. which i suppose is a nice choice microsoft have given us... but i'm certainly ready for some proper next gen games and Sony has that covered day 1.

Why is XBox still requiring the use of AA batteries for their standard controllers? Microsoft is like the only console manufacturer left that still seems to be pushing for the use of AA's while every other platform holder has already moved on to internal rechargable batteries years ago. Lol

That's way more than 4 things!!! The title is wack. according to this video: PROS: (1) Presentation (2) Setting up console is easy / xbox app is great (3) the look of XSX (4) migrating from XB1 to XSX is seamless, quick and easy / modern ecosystem is great Backwards compat games of all 4 generations (5) digital account is all available and easy to re-download / can download games to console from xbox app (6) easy to use display options for 1440 or 4k etc / HDR settings and auto settings (7) satisfying xbox ecosystem (8) XSX controller is the best controller ever (9) Quick resume (10) easy to install expansion SSD - that's 10 things according to IGN but you said "4"

I do think it sounds like that SSD will fill up fast, but from what I’ve heard people at the moment are just swapping games out with theirs existing Hard drives as needed with little issue, so that’s not a deal breaker for me.

the first thing you don't like is extra storage you can get an external hard drive cheap. The quick resume I can totally understand for something shown as a next-gen step but the game line ups really you can buy older titles that upscale with game pass you don't need the newest game and since covid hit surely you would of understand instead of making people think that Microsoft didn't put the effort in for launch

How is controller a thing they love when it's the same one from last time? Except for some tiny dots. If they are going to compare Xbox to PS5 (which they did when talking about the game transfer) they should remove the controller from 4 things.

- Poor amounts of stock here in Australia
- External SSD card is almost $400 AUD
- Lack of next gen games currently out
Right now it’s really not worth it, let alone the fact you have to go onto a waiting list here in Aus. Will definitely pick it up down the track, but probably closer to end of Q1 2021.

if Series X brings VR it will win the war hands down...I have not had so much fun with a console since the 360.......all my favourite games are there and you are basically replaying them in high frame rates........havent been able to stop playing since I got it due to quick resume and the sheer speed......I had a 360 then PS4 and now i can see the difference.....Sony cannot do it like Microsoft.......its not as enjoyable......VR is cool though but gives

You can already switch between games and apps by selecting them from the home button menu... They resume right where you left them. admittedly some games like FH4 seem to close your previous game when it launches. Very frustrating though not knowing if your game will be resumed or quit when opening another.

Everyone keeps complaining about the lack of systems on launch for XBOX and Sony. It wasn't either companies fault that they had to work around a global pandemic that im sure cost them a work force in the factories and most areas of the world being shut down for months at a time.

(Upgraded Xb1 games don't qualify as "next-gen)
Also...I own a 600hrtz TV but it won't let me even turn on 120. 🤣🤣
And Quick resume is definitely NOT exclusive.

It’s so hard to actually convince people to buy an XSX that they’ve spend a whole year talking about the frames talking about the teraflops, and all that demonstrates that they haven’t learn the lesson, “it’s not the hardware, it is the software” and they have none.

One benefit of playing old games on the SX is the massive reduction in load times. In some games, the 'loading' cut scenes are actually longer than how long I have to wait for the next level to load. It's actually really awesome!

I never owned an Xbox One but I've picked up a Series X and gamepass ultimate. For me there's no shortage of games to play. The last Halo I played was Halo 3 and the last Gears of War I played was GOW3. So I have plenty of titles to catch up on from those series.
On top of that there are plenty of games on gamepass that I missed last gen that will keep me busy.
At launch it's a fantastic console to pick up if you skipped the Xbox One last gen and you're now switching to the Xbox brand.
Yeah you could argue those games are all last gen and not 'next gen' but I played my original PS4 on a 1080p TV. I'm now playing a Series X on a much bigger 4k TV. The difference is there! Even on these last gen titles.
