Xbox Series X

so this got revealed at the Game Awards (i know i already made a Game Awards thread but feel this is big enough news to warrant it's own seperate thread)

thoughts on the System?

i've got nothing against the system. system itself looks cool. now we just need the cool games to go with it.
it has a terrible name though.

Xbox One
Xbox One S
Xbox One X
Xbox Series X

"oh but don't worry little Timmy. the Xbox Series X is OBVIOUSLY a different machine than the Xbox One X"

did they learn nothing from Nintendo's failure trying to convince the general public that the Wii U was different from the Wii?

Or even from the difficulty in differentiating between the Xbox One and the... uh.. Xbox one.

Looks like the vent at the top already has a head start on overheating and sagging in the middle, so there's that I guess.

It's from Microsoft, so it already starts with negative "streetcred" for as far as I'm concerned.

I wonder when their product designers went; fuck it , we can't be arsed anymore so here's a bland, black box.

Is it still using an Xbox One Controller because that won't help.

Samtemdo8:

but the Xbox controller has been pretty much perfect since the 360...

Eh 360 controller is feeling its age, especially with that godforsaken D-Pad.

After playing with a Switch Pro Controller and an Xbox One Controller, I wish I can get them to run on my PC.

I have no faith in Xbox considering they only showed off a box and told us nothing about it.

PLaystation 5 revealed itself with an actual launch game. A game! You know, like that thing that Xbox doesn't do anymore but it pretty fucking important when you release a game's console.

I would like Microsoft to have a chance this next generation, because competition is better for everyone in the long run. Yet they better have some shit to show at E3 next year or they are gonna get stomped again.

I am holding off on a PS4 in the hope that PS4 Blu Ray Discs will be backwards compatible with the PS5.

the Xbox One and the Switch controller are fucking and overall more comfortable than the 360 controller yes.

but the 360 controller is the same basic shape layout. the Xbox One and Switch pro controllers are simply just evolutions of the 360 controller design with bettew grips.

it's like how the playstation controller literally just took the design of an SNES controller and then Sony just added handles to make it more comfortable.

I am not that big a fan of the PS4 controller to be honest. I mean an evolution from the PS1 design was needed but they missed the mark with the PS4.

"Should we give every console a distinct name, or give every console the same name with a clear marker of progression for each iteration?"
"No."

i just don't like how close the analogue sticks are to each other and the home button.

it doesn't happen as often now, but for the first couple of months occasionally when i was focusing hard on dodging weapons coming at me or when try to pull sharp turns and tricky shortcuts, my right thumb would sometimes slip and accidentally hit the home button while i was playing crash team racing nitro fueled because the home button being right next to the stick makes accidentally slipping and hitting the home button real easy to do by mistake.

ummm pretty sure Hellblade II exist's...

(and no, microsoft bought the indie developer who made the first hellblade. it's unlikely we'll see it on PS5 or Switch because of that)

To go for that low-hanging fruit, how are we going to abbreviate it? XBSX? XSX? Xbox Sex?

Also, outside of being bland and boring, much like the system's actual appearance, the name Series implies they'll be more than one version. Which is only to be expected I guess. In keeping with Microsoft's current offerings, I'm guessing it'll be a basic system and an a more powerful premium one, perhaps also complemented by a streaming only system. Possible names:

Xbox Series X Core
Xbox Series X Elite
Xbox Series X Cloud

There is apparently someone in Microsoft's marketing team who can't sleep at night without thinking of children being disappointed at Christmas because Grandma bought the wrong kind of XBox.

Do you know why PS5 has me pumped? I'm into VR. It's been a great experience for me.

Do you know why Series X has me simply curious? I don't know anything about it other than specs and a few video trailers, a medium I haven't trusted since Killzone 2.

you just know that was their intention.

But it will be on PC, which ruins the need for a new Xbox. Not everyone plays on PC of course, but it does hurt the bottom line when trying to sell a specific console. We've already seen proof of that in this last generation of Microsoft putting all their games on PC.

You think Microsoft gives a shit? they can easily make it a windows exclusive so they still get paid whether you buy it on on Xbox or on PC.

as long their competitors Sony and Nintendo or Steam for that matter, don't take away from their profits why the fuck would microsoft care if you play it on Xbox or on PC Windows store?

Maybe they don't. But it doesn't make the console worth anything does it? It doesn't help all those boxes sitting on store shelves with no one there to buy them.

It does take away from their profits. It might not effect their bottom line, but it does affect their profits. Most consoles are sold at a lost anyway and only the routine sales of games and services purchased for the console does it end up making money for the company in the end.

Frankly if their attitude is "who fucking cares?" then why would anyone wanna support a console company that has that philosophy?

i ask myself that everytime the internet rage's over an EA game and then millions still go out and buy the next one despite people hating EA and the companies practice's

Well the simple answer to that is simply, the majority of people who play video games are ignorant of the industry. Most people who buy Call of Duty every year, or Madden every year, do not play video games for anything other than to fuck around once in a while and as a result they don't have their ear to the gaming news world or are even aware of the bad shit that only serves to poison the games that come out. These are of course the people who are responsible for the $4 BILLLION Activision made in Mictrotransactions alone in a single year.

However despite that, Xbone sold less in 6 years than Nintendo sold in 2. Why do you suppose the Xbox one sole so poorly? Especially when you consider that the 360 sold much much better. Not even HALF of the people who owned a 360, bought a Xbone. Why?

I strongly endorse calling it the XSeX or Xbox SeX as much as possible so that it becomes the default name in the same way that XBone became the common name of the Xbox One.

There's no way Microsoft doesn't know we'd be making these jokes, not after the whole Xbone and other assorted dickjokes thing.

Perhaps they like it that way. Thirsty AF.

Remember when the letter 'X' was cool and hardcore? Microsoft does.

Seriously, I love how they're stuck with this shitty naming convention, because Sony already has the numbers and Nintendo is recognizable for its gaming regardless of what name their console has; it's typically just 'the new Nintendo'.

Well i for one haven't plugged in my xbox one in ages because there's nothing worth playing on. the majority third party crap doesn't interest me, and series like Halo and Gears of War were amazing back on the 360 but then those series got stale. Halo 4 was average at best and Halo 5 was just plain shit. Bungie Halo games were just so much better back in the day.

Hell i bought a PS4 on Black Friday last year and play that more than i ever played my Xbone in just this year alone.

Bingo. Because it's the console your friends own and force you to buy so you can play multiplayer. Fuck that shit. Dunkey summed this up perfectly.

Once again, history repeat itself. Those that don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Microsoft announces the date of their new console to get ahead of Sony? Check. Confusing, dumb ass name similar to the Wii U? Check. It's matter of time before we have another RROD scenario. Microsoft, I do appreciate my time with the 360, but if you don't care. Why should I? X Series X is such dumb, fucking, name. I hope you're happy confusing all of the parents and grandparents out there. They should have just called it XBOX Scarlette.

If anyone uses those terms in stores, no parent is going to want to buy it because of the abbreviation. It will still be funny as all hell.

Err, how does the success of this console brand depend so much on the underage audience? Nintendo has always had the reputation of being the family friendly brand. XBox was even name-dropped in Fifty Shades of Grey.

I meant it mostly as a joke, but Microsoft and Sony for that matter, know that parents/grandparents spend money on these consoles for their kids or grand kids. Many times, because they expect the console to be a babysitter to their children instead of doing any actual parenting. I remember in 2017 around Black Friday, this mom bought her 2 bratty sons both XBones, because either refused to share. How spoiled can you make your kids? Lay down ground rules, bitch! Back in the day, you had to share. Most of knew how to do it. My brother and I had no problems sharing consoles. Especially when it was a co-op game.

And the reason why these kids want an XBOX/PS to be seen as cool, adult, or just to play GTA/Red Dead/COD/Fornte. IE, most of the time they're playing these games, because others are playing them and no other reason. Basically, they're unwilling or rarely venture out in to other games, due to fear or thinking any other game is crap, because it does not play like the games they constantly play.

Fair enough.

You should try more games. Of the 66 different games nominated for The Game Awards, 54 of them were 3rd party games, only 12 were 1st party games. The GOTY winner is playable on the Xbone BTW.

Exactly. It's what everyone else is saying. It's too close to "Xbox One X." Dumb move, but the system sounds impressive.
