Xbox Series X - The next Xbox that's boxy but sexy xXx

My first thought would be Death Stranding to PC Gamepass as that’s the easiest least effort thing. Could be some new game as there was a story about Kojima wanting to do a cloud based game, so maybe something for Xcloud. I hope it’s not an acquisition as they seem like a really bad fit that I’d expect ending badly in the long run.

I checked this - Warface is indeed F2P, but the game that’s coming to GWG next month, Warface: Breakout, is $19.99. Not sure if this is a sequel or expanded version or something.

That’s actually the next Xbox after the current generation. It was there the whole time, they’ll say.

I’m just gonna say this:
Death Stranding was a trash game.

Death Stranding was one of my favorite games of 2019

I have no response to that.

Where/how did you find your Series X? Is it an arcane process involving boys bots that search the web for you?

I pre-ordered one of mine on Amazon and got the other from Costco after launch.

Don’t be sexist… It’s ‘youths’ (pronounced like Joe Pesci does in My Cousin Vinny)

D’oh! Stupid autocorrect.

Fixed

I got a notification on the Hotstock app, opened up the Amazon app, and clicked “buy now”. Took around 6 or 7 tries that attempt as Amazon was acting up. Only took me 4-5 attempts total. XSX was super easy compared to my GPU and particularly CPU.

Funny followup, Amazon shipped it UPS ground from California, so I called them up and complained that it was supposed to be 2 day shipping and they refunded my entire year of Prime-- a $129 refund to my credit card. Can’t beat that! Arrives Thursday.

Glad to see this!

Series S is still available at Gamestop.

Surprise, ain’t nobody wanting the iPhone 5C.

Yeah, it’s the disc version or bust for me, given the old discs I still have, like Midnight Club Los Angeles.

I kind of wish they had a 3rd option that is Xbox X with no disc for $400, maybe call it Xbox E. That is the one I probably would have jumped on if given the chance. With that said, if they did that then it would have really killed the sales of the Series S.

The original concept sounded great. An XSX, just at 1080p. They outright failed to execute on that. It deserves to die.

They absolutely should make an XSX Digital Edition, they would sell like hotcakes. Problem is they’re not exactly having difficulty selling the full-fat XSX, so there’s no reason to go there in the next couple of months at least.

It’s the Core all over again, but gimpier, and I told you so.

But that’s the problem - the concept wasn’t an XSX 1080p. The concept was a last gen console with next gen “features” to ensure backwards compatibility.

The Series S exists for people who would have been buying an Xbox One X version S edition, that doesn’t exist because forward compatibility would have sucked.

In MS’s mind, they’re tapping into the same demographic that bought the One S last time. A significantly less powerful console that people bought because of reasons. And really, the logic is the same - if you think the Series S shouldn’t exist, then the One S shouldn’t have existed and, going forward, there should be no backward compatibility with new games and last gen consoles.
