Xbox Series X

Recommended Posts

Now that we have a name for the console, I figured we should make a thread for it like we have with the Playstation 5.  This was just announced at the Game Awards tonight.

I know it's called an XBOX, but they didn't need to actually make it a box.

I'm honestly not sure what people expected.  This console is roughly 4x more powerful than the Xbox One S.  Did people really think they would be able to keep the consoles as small as they are today, while making them that absurdly powerful?  The thing is basically a PC, so it has a mini-PC tower.

Xbox continuing their trend of terrible console naming*

Xbox - Solid.

Xbox 360- Sure why not.

Xbox One - It's the third console wtf.

Xbox one X - Sure....

Xbox Series X - XboxSX another terrible name.

I agree with this.

I read an article a few days ago that Microsoft was going to release two consoles 2020 holidays.  One would be a cheaper console and then a more expensive version that's supposed to be roughly 4x more powerful than the current Xbox One S.

Also, I wish they would have shown the price.  I'm really curious as to what the price of these things will be with all the internals and power they will have.

I'd treat that with a grain of salt given next gen consoles are still a little under a year away and Xbox has plenty of time to change their mind on that because splitting the user-base that early on is a bad idea. 

Whoever announces the price first is an idiot, but agreed. 

Whoever reveals first whether that's $400-500 will most likely be undercut in price by the other.

I don't think the player base will be split.  In fact, all Xbox one S and Xbox One X users will more than likely be able to play with Xbox Series X users..... Xbox Series X users will just be able to run the game at higher FPS and the game will look better.

I don't think this will be like other gens where the consoles were separated.  Like going from PS3 to PS4 was.

Xbox Series X is the higher end model. Meaning developers will look to base their games off of the cheaper/more popular lower end model first meaning the X is going to need multiple developer port. Kinda like how the switch has different modes for docked/mobile play, it's a hassle Microsoft should avoid and just roll with the series X.

I agree, both being backwards compatible helps a lot on that end but I have a feeling Xbox is still gonna split it's user base with two different models at launch, along the Wii U esque name compared to the One X.

Xbox always the coolest freakin Codenames and then picks the lamest most uninspired, most overly wordy names.

All facts, should've just kept it named Scarlett for all that, lol

Sounds inspiring even though I'm not a huge Xbox fan, but its cool that they're making it backwards compatible with all gens. Controller still looks wild to me and I'll always believe they should have stuck with the 360 design.

If that hellblade 2 video really is what we can look forward to with the capabilities of next gen systems I'm definitely excited

The fact that it is just "Xbox" with a "series" indicator makes me think that they are going to be moving away from having distinct generations, and instead have more frequent refreshes, with old systems still being compatible.

Even though I didn't own a ONE, I am a big fan of what XBOX has done this gen. I think the PS4 was the worst console I've ever owned...aside from the games.

No idea which console I'll be buying next gen, or if both.
