So the Xbox Series X seems like it's a big deal but when compared to the Playstation 5, it feels a bit lackluster. Maybe Xbox is trying to do something differently....

    I do wish that they didn’t remove the HDMI in because I found it useful for hooking up another console, such as a switch. Now you need a monitor or tv with two HDMI inputs.

    according to Digital Foundry (I think, I maybe mistaken on source), 'old gen' games (from Xbox One, 360, etc) do not use the high speed velocity architecture and will only benefit from the innate speed of SSD. So imho, it would be better to reserve the SSD storage (and the memory card if you get it) for only XBox Series X/S games.

They've been available for decades. --> :rolleyes: Btw, they do make smaller dedicated media cabinet fan/cooling kits.--> And don't you worry about uploading those plans to make your own DIY kit, because many other's have already done so. 8:41 And sorry to break it to you David, but the term "minilithic" has been around for a while. ...

    I honestly wouldn't be able to fit that in my tv-stand, i can fit the PS5 easily because it's thinner, but i don't have chance with the Xbox. Even if i could, it won't fit into my living room at all as everything at least has some sort of fancy design to it nowadays, while the Xbox is just a big black box.

    Would love if pc ditch 2.5" sata ssd in favor of that form factor. Just 1 cable from the mobo for both power and data and a standard connection hub (x2, x4, x8 depending of your pick) for the ssd's. Could even up the speed to 1GB/s for a kinda semi nvme/sata4 candidate.

    Sony dropped the ball so hard this gen. The only real problem I have with the new Xbox is the name. X1, X1X, that was okay enough. What do we shorten this one too without confusion? XX? XsX? They should've just called it Xbox 2020 or something, maybe Xbox Two. I feel like they just don't want to have a lower number than the PlayStation does but is it really worth having such a confusing naming system?

    thats what u took away from this? lmao it doesn't really need to be removed cuz the stand is thin. the ps5 one is a round BLOCK propping up some weird abstractly shaped modern art internet router so of course it would be removable. honestly if i was a console gamer id much rather own this thing than a ps5. at least i wouldnt be constantly beaten over the head with anti consumerism from microsoft like sony does to their playerbase.

    Just reading the description makes me sick. I can only assume the million of dollars (easy money) you make like this. Working 42 hours a week wont be enough to buy myself a new console this autumn. Enjoy your easy money on NOlocal while it lasts. I miss the days were people were making videos out of passion, or for fun. Promoting your s**t again in the first minute video (and again around 5mins mark), like the description wasnt enough.... Enjoy your xbox series X that you got FOR FREE. Disgusting The least you could do is shave, and do your hair properly. You look like a homeless dude.

  • Oriba


    2 måneder siden

    The series S is cheaper because it is less powerful, it also has less storage so you’ll probably end up having to buy an ssd anyway, the thing is you don’t have to buy it at all, just have an external hard drive and when you want to play a game on ssd just move it over from the hat drive to your xbox storage

  • Joe Chinchar

    Yeah but it's SSD, not an old hard drive meaning you benifit from a lot faster load times etc. You could just plug a 3rd party hard drive in the USB as well but it's gonna be a lot slower loading games (and swapping between) that are installed on the older hard drive. Plus the price is very comparable to external pc SSDs, they're not overpriced at all. And I'm sure they'll be half the price in a few years, so hopefully every game doesn't take 100 gigs like Modern warfare are we can be content with 1 TB till the prices drop.

    I can't buy any of the next gen consoles because they are missing optical out connection. My PS 4 Pro is connected to 4K gaming monitor via HDMI and my Bose 5.1 surround system gets optical cable from PS4 Pro. Bose Lifestyle V20 only takes in Optical cable as a input for sound. My monitor - LG 27UK650 and it does not have Optical Out or HDMI out. There is no way I will be able to use my 5.1 surround system with the next gen consoles. Great job Sony and Microsoft! Now, I have to buy/build a new PC just because you did not include S/PDIF out in your consoles! I won't be buying any HDMI extractors since I do not want an additional input lag/ problems with chroma subsampling, etc. I don't think any of the converters support 4K@120 Hz with 4:4:4 10 bit. Even if I buy LG CX, the sound from the next gen consoles will have to make an extra trip from the console to TV and then from TV back into my Bose system via Optical out and might introduce an additional lag, provided I will even get a 5.1 surround.
