Xbox Series X

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Project Scarlett has a face, and an official name.

Xbox Series X

 

Quote


From a technical standpoint, this will manifest as world-class visuals in 4K at 60FPS, with possibility of up to 120FPS, including support for Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), and 8K capability. Powered by our custom-designed processor leveraging the latest Zen 2 and next generation RDNA architecture from our partners at AMD, Xbox Series X will deliver hardware accelerated ray tracing and a new level of performance never before seen in a console.  Additionally, our patented Variable Rate Shading (VRS) technology will allow developers to get even more out of the Xbox Series X GPU and our next-generation SSD will virtually eliminate load times and bring players into their gaming worlds faster than ever before.

 

All the stuff we have heard about previously, at least in writing officially now.

Thanks to backward compatibility, you can expect your gaming legacy, thousands of your favorite games across four generations of gaming, all your Xbox One gaming accessories, and industry-leading services like Xbox Game Pass to be available when you power on your Xbox Series X in Holiday 2020.

Claiming to have backwards compatibility from Gen1 Xbox up through to Xbox One available on day 1.

 

Doesn't say how many titles will be available at launch, but Halo: Infinite will be (so far, assuming no delays), and it also looks like Hellblade 2 will be (the trailer is in the article).

 

Depending on how this next year goes, and what other games are available at launch, I might find myself picking one of these up. I actually like the design, though I have a feeling it'll be divisive. They say there will be a new base controller, but I haven't seen anything on it yet, as well as the new Elite 2. Not quite sure how I feel about the name, though, and I can't really think of any way to follow the previous naming conventions. It's not the worst, but it does sound like it's allowing for some sort of sub-sets/variations/customizations (customized/themed consoles, etc.).

Their systems, no. But the services and features they've brought out have been phenomenal.

The name is pretty dumb, and I hope they change it. Why can't they just stick with the much cooler code names?

Anyways, I don't like that it's vertical, makes it very weird to place in the typical TV entertainment center. Hopefully you'll be able to lay it down, though it still looks pretty thick that way too.

Quote

We also designed Xbox Series X to support both vertical and horizontal orientation.

Oh. Okay then. According to that YT thumbnail, it's about as wide as a controller... Hmm. That does make it slightly thicker than my AVR, and a hell of a lot thicker than any other console. I don't even like that my standard sized AVR is as big as it is.

Quote

Alongside Xbox Series X, we also unveiled the new Xbox Wireless Controller. Its size and shape have been refined to accommodate an even wider range of people, and it also features a new Share button to make capturing screenshots and game clips simple and an advanced d-pad derived from the Xbox Elite Series 2 Wireless Controller.

Great. So I actually now have no reference to size, and I just hope the share button doesn't take the place of the... I'm still calling it a start and back/select button. I hate that on the PS4.

Quote

The possibilities of what Xbox Series X enables developers to achieve was also brought to life this evening with the unveiling of Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II. A sequel to the award-winning Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice from world-renowned developers Ninja Theory, the game is being built to leverage the full power of Xbox Series X.  The footage shared tonight was captured in-engine and reflects the power of Xbox Series X available to developers to deliver new universes, experiences and games in ways you have never imagined.

Wow, they're actually calling it Senua's Saga? Amazing.

"Footage captured in-engine" Does not equal "Footage captured in-game in real time."

Oh, I highly doubt that. Even optane doesn't instantaneously load games.

One of the things we’re most proud of with Xbox Series X is the promise we’re delivering to our fans who have and continue to invest with Xbox. Thanks to backward compatibility, you can expect your gaming legacy, thousands of your favorite games across four generations of gaming

I'm curious if that's using the "backwards compatibility" list they have for the One, or if they actually did something new and different to more natively support older titles. It'd be rad as hell to just toss in some OG Xbox or 360 discs and not have to have those plugged in for the titles it arbitrarily doesn't support. I'm not holding my breath.

I would assume this means if the developers implement it in such a way, such as in Halo 2, everything loaded in as it was needed, so there was no loading screens. Yeah, things popped in sometimes, but if access speeds were that much faster, it would probably be less, if at all, noticeable. Granted, models and textures have grown in size as well, I still feel as though this could be leveraged in a way to come across as "virtually eliminated load times".

Well, you have the Xbox 1, the Xbox 360 (1), and the Xbox One.

This could've been Xbox First I guess. Or... 720? Just keep adding revolutions equaling up to 1?

By that Logic GTAV has no load times.

During single-player gameplay, yeah, pretty much. Though, from memory, that game has menus on menus on menus on menus that need to load what feels like everything first. Especially multiplayer... But that was forever and a day ago, so I don't know what it's like currently.

It’s bold and unique, very much like our fans around the world and the team of collaborators and innovators who built it.

thanks, though this doesnt look bold and unique.Image result for xbox series x release dateI very much agree with the ability to place it horizontal and vertical, but of course, its a freakin rectangular prism

The only hardware that was known so far it's the use of an Zen 2 processor and custom Radeon graphics, and I think solid state storage.

Well, we already know about the hardware to a degree.  It's another custom AMD CPU/GPU combo that's supposed to be about four times faster than the Xbox One X.  It'll use an SSD for storage.  Basically, XBSX and PS5 will be closely competitive, and it'll come down to different priorities and software availability.

The game has a 5 minute loading sequence to get in game. That's not what I consider instant loading, and that type of loading system has been around since at the very least the original Xbox.

Yep. I would've much preferred the typical flat and "deep" approach. I have my PS4 Pro on top of a cubby nicely underneath my desk. No way this thing is fitting there.

Also, with the top being oddly concave, just seems like it could've been that much shorter.
