SIDENOTE: Pete, I've just noticed the jiggles comment in your sig is going to coincide almost precisely with the release of Alyx in VR.

As you were.

Xbox One Series X - I like it!

I genuinely like the look, it is similar in style to some mini-towers and the Apple Blackmagic egpu which I also really like, the top is 100% inspired from the grills on the new Mac Pro. The chassis is big enough for good air ventilation to keep next-gen hardware quiet. Instantly resuming multiple games sounds great. I'm intrigue as to how this is done, iPhone can do this by putting each app in a frozen state, but they are small and can easily be loaded up. With XSeX maybe it will still have to reload-the game before you can resume in the same place, this would also mean you can save electricity as well as your game.

Cross-gen game saves is good too - meaning the console experience is maintained across generational improvements.

Share button, fantastic. I remember trying to explain to someone why this is so good, but he said you can do the same thing with Xbox! But you can't do it with the same immediacy or save as much footage, so he will see for himself how great it is. Phil acknowledged Xbox wasn't the first but he didn't pay his dues to the biggest feature of the generation.

Power is expected to be 12Tf, but why was it not revealed? Maybe Spencer wants to do a surprise and make it 16Tf?

The name doesn't have a logic but doesn't sound bad. I'm guessing the abbreviated name sounds really cool to nerdy Americans teenagers and loyalists XB fans like Photek, but in London when I read XSeX it just sounds like Essex. The Xbox Essex doesn't have a good ring about it.

It wasn't clear to me what MS was saying about backwards compatibility, does it mean the XSeX will have a native BC with all Xbox generation games? Also, the cloud gaming stuff. Post-reveal Gamespot interview was done in the same vein as Wired interview to get more info across after the stage razzamatazz.

From all the comments that Microsoft have made about making an affordable machine and a powerful machine, the Lockhart and Anaconda stuff and the rumours of Sony releasing two models at launch and the Series name, I now think it's a tad more likely that Microsoft will release an affordable model and a premium model. What would enthusiasts pay for that? If it a league above anything else in features and graphics I would pay £599.

£599 would be a tough sell for a console however powerful.
Yes, sure as an enthusiast you and I will pay that for a super console but how many others will if the PS5 is quite a bit cheaper and only marginally less powerful?
I'd say £499 is the most they can reasonably get away with and I'd be willing to bet it's £450.

£599 is expensive but the higher price would be for the premium model. £399/£450 would mean the base model is affordable and can help grow the install base.

Well, we'll see in a few months at E3 which is when I expect a price announcement.
At least we aren't paying for random gooseberry fool like cameras this time.

I really like the console design itself but what are Microsoft doing with that branding :lol:

This would have been the opportunity to align with PlayStation and call it the Xbox 5 (counting the One X as the 4th).

I think the idea is to have everything that was BC on Xbox One carry over to Series X, with the addition of Xbox One's library of games and accessories.

As for launch price, I'll go with my netbro Peter and guess £450.

Cool. I think I read or Phil said that the next update is E3 - which means a very long wait.

£599 is a lot of money but then console prices have been holding relatively low when you take inflation into account.

The PS1 launched at £299 in 1995, accounting for inflation over 25 years that works out at almost £600 now.

And the Saturn was £400 in the same year! To start with, anyway.

I’ll be buying it regardless of price, because I deliberately “saved” money by skipping the X. Not that I’d be happy about £600, but I will pay it. And a new TV. But I’m waiting until much nearer the time for that, if a 120Hz set is optimal (and possibly 8k).

Well that looks rather nice. Looks like my PS5 savings tin will have to double up as a Sex tin.

I already have one of those thankfully, wasn't expecting to have to use it to buy a games console though.

Peter Brown is the Gamespot editor who interviewed Phil Spencer about the XSeX and got shown it in person. Here's an interview with him where he doesn't reveal any more facts but does give opinion on related matters, such as his belief this will be around the $499 mark and that he thinks there will be a budget Series model that is supported with Xbox's power of the cloud.

Xbox Series X rewrites the rules of console design - and the power level should be extraordinary

With that in mind, Series X - and almost certainly PS5 - are built on a foundation of optimism and confidence this time around. There is no compromise in CPU performance in the next-gen design: we're getting a customised rendition of a high-spec PC part. Meanwhile, the PS5 GPU may be shrouded in mystery, but if the indications are true for Series X, Microsoft has developed a console GPU that is more performant and more feature-rich than any Navi part AMD has shipped in 2019. Your next console will be a lot bigger than your current one and it may cost more than you expected, but putting this level of power in a mainstream piece of gaming hardware is hugely exciting. Technological miracles were achieved from the current-gen machines despite their limitations - and the possibilities represented by their successors are mouthwatering.

i know it's still a year away but I wish they'd give an idea of what games are coming out for this at launch. I find it hard to believe they're going to wait until E3 in June next year before revealing anything?

I should imagine now that's it's public an Inside Xbox stream sometime before June will give give a tease of what's to come, but they will probably want to save the big announcements for E3.

I'm just waiting for the inevitable Digital Foundry review of the next gen tech once they get access to it.
I also think the teardowns are going to be interesting at least for the series x as it's an odd shape.
