Anyway hope X series hits u.k. late 20"
Any dimensions from the Borg yet.

It will be crazy - like that one year where Xbox and Playstation released a week apart... :eek:



There's supposed to be a "cheaper" model (Anaconda) coming out as well.

Maybe they'll just update the Xbox One X to to 8Tflops and SSD (so it reaches the 4k/30)... Supposedly $399. Whereas the Series X will come in at $499.

Hence the "X series", maybe they took their cue from Apple?

Now the day after, Gamestop has Xbox One X's for $349 plus two game downloads plus a $50 gift card...

Meh, hard sells now anyways...
499 dollars....I"m thinking 449-499 Uk pounds@launch

The only thing I'm reluctant about is like in the 3DO days, Devs made almost everything with Video because it was "the thing"...

Hope Devs don't overdo this "ray-tracing" thing just doing it in games for the sake of doing it.

If they do, hopefully there's a setting to turn it down/off so you can get the maximum framerate in the game...
Fully get what you're saying, I am really glad there is a focus on performance with next gen and definitely not interested in gimmicks anymore - having said that, I've been running an RTX 2080 in my PC for a while now and some of the ray traced games look absolutely incredible. I don't mind if some games want to prioritise visuals over performance every now and then.

If they just make it "an option" - that will keep everyone happy!

I find the design really really cool, and would take up less space in my living room.

I'll give Microsoft a chance this time. Never had an Xbox. PlayStation has so many great games this generation that I will probably trust them again, but will have an eye opened for the new Xbox.

Thanks height seriously exceeds my Oak t.v. Unit.
Maybe X series could take place opposite Router behind t.v.
It is an odd shaped console, frankly. Most entertainment centers are designed for components that are not tall but wide. Microsoft said Xbox Series X can be laid down on its side, but then the logo is not facing correctly and doesn't look natural.

Seems they were afraid to really give it a design... Guess the design isn't important. Curious what Sony did with the PS5, can't be long until they show it to the world.
