Official Xbox: Series X | Series S Thread

Series S has the expansion slot, nice. Though the RAM speeds seem to be causing a bit of a stir for the Series S, they do seem significantly slower than the XSX's but I am no expert on what that will result in by any means.

EA Play coming to Game Pass Ultimate at no extra cost. 👌

While EA Play doesn't get EA's latest games day 1 (usually it's 6-8 months later) I still have absolutely no idea how this is worth it for EA but Christ, Games Pass's value just took a massive jump once again.

That's what I initially thought but I reckon it's actually a great deal for EA.  Because I think they know they can't really compete with Game Pass. How many people are really going to fork over for Game Pass and EA Pass? I'm sure EA have negotiated their cut. I think Microsoft pays developers hours played on their games on Game Pass. Not only that, but having FIFA on Game Pass now is just giving more people access to their online casino that is FIFA Ultimate Team. I'm no football head but I enjoyed playing FIFA until I got too mad at EA and stopped buying it. But if I can play on Game Pass, I'll be happy. 

 

Although you did say those games don't come day one, so I'll probably buy FIFA anyway, to try next gen football.I reckon there are lots of use-cases like me. Will buy FIFA anyway, then those that didn't buy it at launch might play it 6 months after, and then spend money on micros-transactions. 

 

But either way, I'm so excited. As a console gamer sticking with the Xbox One was testing at times. But I'm really thinking this next generation will be the best generation yet.

You raise a good point, how many people are going to pay for both. EA Play does give 10 hours playtime for new releases and is widely used by Fifa fans to get an early start on Ultimate Team, it also includes discounts on the packs and if I remember right the games in general, so there's definitely an angle there that they'll be thinking of FUT/MUT players with this deal.

 

Either way, it's just more value to Games Pass. Sure you won't get the latest EA games day 1 (only PC has that with their Premium subscription atm) but 6-8 months down the line you'll get access to them which, over time, will be a huge boon for Games Pass. I wouldn't be surprised if this isn't the last big announcement they have regarding it either, I've expected they'll push Games Pass hard for the XSX/XSS launch due to it being their ace up the sleeve so to speak.

I had no idea about that. That's actually all right.

I think you're right. I wonder was this on of those "mic-drop after mic-drop" announcements that were expected in August or July that some leaker touted. I mean, I know we're getting all this info now over a couple of days but imaging the price-reveal, EA Pass and Series S reveal all in one event. That would have been pretty momentous. 

 

I think you are right and my guess is The Initiative announces what they're working on. So far PS wins by far (at least the general consensus among gamers) for exclusives. So, up to this point, Xbox aren't competing with Sony directly where people might think is obvious (exclusives) I think they may try steal some thunder after PS announces their prices with whatever The Initiative is working on, which is rumored to be something in the Perfect Dark universe and "AAAA". Which makes sense since cyberpunk looks like its going to be the big trend going into this generation. So perhaps that could be another ace. But yeah, maybe they have more Game Pass additions. If they do, wow.

My guess has been that if either console costs more, it'll be the PS5 due to that SSD, but I suspect they'll price match the XSX regardless and potentially beat it with the digital PS5, but I could also see a $499 digital PS5 and $549 standard PS5.

 

Regardless if the only thing that was different was the disk drive, $50 difference between the two, nobody would buy it. $300 and $500 is just right

 

I  wouldn't be surprised if sony matched it or was more.

They said holidays, so I would assume when the next gen consoles are released.

It's not just PS exclusives though (but that alone is a good reason too). The latest big third-party games won't be coming to Game Pass either. Those are the two main reasons I won't be buying an Xbox now (not until they have their own quality exclusives at least).

I think if you are a console-only gamer, Series X is by far the better choice. The criticism I see from fanboys is "Xbox has no games."  I don't know who thinks this but it could be PC-primary gamers that buy consoles for exclusives. Basically very hardcore gamers. And I understand them. But if a console-gamer says "Xbox has no games" it's just simply untrue given that in my case, I have all my backwards compatibly titles and current library which is about 150+ games, Game Pass titles about nearly 200 games and then 4 free games with Games With Gold. So, in a world where third-party games make up the lionshare, the "Xbox has no games" narrative is a bit moot. That's not even including Halo series, Forza Horizon and Motorsport series,  Gears series, State of Decay series, Quantum Break etc. Xbox has good exclusives but they're more established series with heavy multiplayer elements. If you are gamer that will play most genres, then Xbox is fine. There's no missing out on a handful of exclusives. It's kind of like missing out on some album you never listened to. Not bad. 

 

If you are PC gamer that will invest in one console to play exclusives, then PS4 is the better for choice for this current gen. Superior graphics and more bigger exclusives non-series titles. But to me, it's still not worth paying the admission for those titles. I don't think anyone that owns a PS4 is unhappy with their purchase. But I think Xbox is offering more this next generation. 

 

The Initiative. Avowed. Fable plus all the usual series I mentioned will make it great. And all first-party titles coming to Game Pass is great. So, Halo, Gears, Forza Horizon,  Avowed, Fable, The Medium etc etc. 

 

PS5 is going to be a great console but I'm not missing out on it. Xbox is catering to my needs with Game Pass alone and that's choice and variety of games at a low price and backwards compatibility. Icing on the cake for me is that there's only one place to play Red Dead Redemption at 4K, 60fps and that's on a One X or Series X.

 

Also, Xbox was very multiplayer-centric. Gears, Forza, Halo, Sea of Thieves are all multiplayer focused. And I think it's great that these are staples of the Xbox experience. Next gen wee see RPG's like Avowed and Fable, so we'll have big, big open-world games exclusive. So over two generations Xbox will have built of a nice cross-section of gaming genres as exclusives. 

 

I think Sony said they're going to focus on multiplayer exclusives games this gen. Very interesting!

Even if PS5 was a really low graphic console, I would still go for it. Purely for the exclusives, Naughty Dog, Guerrilla and Insomniac do it for me. It may be cheap, but I just care a lot about those games.

If that rumored all digital Series V is true I'd go for that one.  Aside from GTA IV (and episodes) I haven't used disks in forever.    Even our movie library moved to digital.

Yea I'd be surprised if we don't get an all digital Series X and if it is true the price will be interesting. There are some rumours today that Sony will be going for $399 with the digital PS5, if MS price match that then MS will be covering all bases. MS are reportedly taking a bigger loss on the S than the X, so you'd think they'll be willing to do the same on the rumoured V especially as that would be a very attractive price point for a lot of people given how many people go digital on console these days.

Any accessories with Design For Xbox sticker will be tested and approved by Xbox ensuring there is "continuous compatibility", meaning the accessories will work on current gen and Series X.

Games Can Be 30% Smaller For Xbox Series S, Saving SSD Space On Install Sizes

The Xbox Series S comes with a smaller SSD, but Microsoft has a solution that'll help keep game install sizes down.

xCloud has gotten way better since they moved out of preview.  Way too temping to play while at work...way too tempting.  I actually invested the 9 bucks in a phone clip for my controller.

 

Aside from digital games, I have never pre-ordered anything.  When the Xbox One came out I just went to Target the afternoon of release day and picked one up.  Why am I thinking about preording?

I'll probably pre-order but I am wary after seeing the pre-order shenanigans today around the PS5 and the 3080. They were selling out QUICK and physical stores were saying they weren't getting much in the way of stock there and what they were getting was already sold out. I am really not the type of person who sits F5ing sites to buy something before they sell out and I have no plans to do it here but I am sliiiiiiiiightly anxious about it after today.

Relax you'll be able to get it no problem hell you might be able to even go to the store and walk right out with an Xbox.
