    Damn, that does look like a tempting deal. I've been holding out hope for a ps5 because of gran turismo, but that's starting to feel like the only draw..

    Waiting for GT to come out is the definition of insanity.

    This is all making me extra pissed off that the new Vizio TV’s aren’t coming anymore ffs

    CAD prices aren't out yet, but in the US, it's slightly cheaper to go monthly, something like $19 cheaper over the course of 2 years.
    If it was $50 cheaper, I might bite. $10 a year is just skipping 2 starbucks visits.

    Wish they made an X without the drive. it will go completely unused. Any games I have purchased on my Xbox One have been digital and I've never used the drive.

    Size of the S with the power of X. Bet it comes out in 3 years as a refresh.

    It's the only reason I have a PS3. I currently don't know where it is.

    The Series S is decent if you can live with 1440p. Honestly for most games you won’t be able to tell the difference. Just the AAA titles that focus on graphics extensively.

    The S and X share the same CPU, just the GPU is gimped.

    For the $220 difference, I would get the X as it will just last longer.

    My launch Xbox One chugs on certain games cause it is 7 years old. I am sure a One X doesn't have that problem and the Series S will likely run into sooner than the Series X.

    It does. Minecraft is just terribly made, and it performs like shit on the One X.

    A cheaper console that plays all the same games as the more expensive console, with lower graphics settings, is complicated?

    Why is that? I haven't played since 5 but I enjoyed it and the trailer for 7 looked pretty good. Is forza (or something else) just more popular these days?

    Depends on how long you like to sit on a console waiting for a game to come out. GT5 was delayed what? Every 6 months for 3+ years on PS3?

    Haven’t heard much good of any of the GT’s since 3 or 4. There are just so many better options these days that the franchise has solidly missed the boat.

    Maybe Xbox series X will allow gigabit downloads, which will be needed if I only have 1 TB to keep games on and I need to keep deleting shit. Hopefully they will let us cache games on USB3 for quick install.
    @killramos I'm crossposting this reply here. You'll want to buy cheap USB3 external storage.

    The Xbox Series S/X has the super fast SSD, 512GB for S, 1TB for X. Xbox Series games needs to run on there, including smart delivery games and cross platform games on the Xbox Series. The external drive (non SSD, cheap ass USB3 HDD) would be used to store and run all your Xbox One games, and store Xbox Series games to the super fast SSD.

    In summary, you don't want to waste SSD space with Xbox One games, and they should be dedicated to Xbox Series games.

    Yea I know, I’m just going to move my existing 3TB to my series X. I am just saying, while I can’t run games from USB. It would be nice to offload them from the NVME onto external so I can move them back and forth in minutes rather than need to re-download to the tune of an hour or more for a big game.

    1TB is like 5 big games these days.

    MW + Warzone is over 200GB on PC. So 512GB and 1TB sounds insufficient if all games needs to run from there.

    So tiny. I think I had missed the no ir port though. Sad days for my harmony remote I think.

    The specs on these are amazing for the price. Having that big of a difference in price is awesome especially if you were on a budget but want to go next gen with friends

    I think I read many moons ago that the XBOX has no plan to support VR. Is this still the case?

    I think PS5 is going to provide VR support, which might be an incentive to switch over. I don't have a PC that can run VR so it would be nice to experience that via console.

    I don’t think that’s accurate.

    I don't think anything is concrete but they should have something in planning I would think
