    God the PS5 is a massive ugly tacky lump, the Series X is just a LUMP.
    Surprised they chose that image as it has the Xbox Series S side on, but both the Series X and PS5 front on. Makes the Series S look really big when it is really quite tiny, and it's something they do in many of the pictures which is a bit disingenuous.

    Re: Microsoft shares an Xbox Series X/S walkthrough video

    Got to be honest this is the first generation of console I've been interested in from day one. I've owned most consoles since Snes but always been a PC guy but since getting game pass and a cheap xbox one a year ago I've bought one PC game. Throw in quick resume, play from my phone and the fact the console is a similar cost to replacing my GPU with something of similar power to this console. I'm really tempted. Just need to find one for sale now before Christmas.

    Yet again they mention the storage, but not even a hint at the extortionate prices, I view this as intentionally misleading customers.

    It's all fine and well talking about games which have been ported from last gen. Going forward games are going to get a lot bigger and the capacities available are laughable in that respect. The cost, that is on another planet altogether.

    Have you seen the prices of games too? £90 is common for a new game on new consoles

    Re: Microsoft shares an Xbox Series X/S walkthrough video

    @Yoyoyo69 - consoles are always this way... base console hardware is relatively affordable (compared to equivalent pc components), games and peripherals tend to be more expensive. But it's a model that works for the target market and has given Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft a sustainable revenue stream from gaming for many years.

    Besides this, games you're not currently playing actively can be spooled off to a cheap USB HDD / SSD until you want to dip back in again. So gamers have options other than splurging on the official plug-in SSD on day 1.

    And if you look at the whole proposition; e.g. extensive backwards-compatibility, game-streaming, gamepass, etc... the new Xbox has a lot of entertainment potential for the right kind of person (someone without a £2000+ gaming PC, VR Headset or a hot partner to jump on [albeit, safely in these peculiar Covid-19 times])

    Was there something wrong with that Dirt 5 video because that looked like it was from an N64
