DISCUSSION Am I the only one here who intentionally chose the Series S over the X?

79 Upvotes
<!-- SC_OFF --><div class="md"><p>So, I was able to snag a Series S on release by pure luck. Walmart was supposed to sell them online only, but mine goofed and I was able to buy one as soon as the store opened. I was first in line. There were 3 X&#39;s and 3 S&#39;s. I specifically chose the Series S. To me, it just ... makes sense. I have a 4k TV, but I&#39;m not really a fan of AAA games; I&#39;m pretty much blitzing through every indi game on Gamepass. The few AAA games that I play are insanely awesome on the S (recently speaking about FH5). For me, it came down to aesthetics. That white box is waaaaaaay better looking in my living room than the X. </p> <p>It&#39;s just strange that one year later, people are still giving this little box a ton of hate. I feel like most people settled for this machine because they couldn&#39;t get an X. I think it&#39;s unfair to treat this an inferior console; yes, the resolution is lower, but that isn&#39;t really anything important. The only real negative I have is the storage size is abysmal. I hadn&#39;t realized how bad it was (haven&#39;t really played since the 360 days so I thought 512gb was huge. oops). </p> <p>I guess all I&#39;m saying is that for the people on here lurking still on the fence, don&#39;t listen to the haters. This little beast is an incredible value and an awesome machine, especially if you love last gen and/or indi games.</p> </div><!-- SC_ON -->

<!-- SC_OFF --><div class="md"><p>To me the FPS boost is no doubt one of the greatest features of this new generation. It really turns games into a different experience. So many great titles have already been updated, but there are still so many that I’d want to see receive the treatment:</p> <p>&#x200B;</p> <ul> <li>AC Black Flag and Origins</li> <li>Batman Arkham trilogy</li> <li>Darksiders 2 and 3</li> <li>Dead Space 1 (probably never coming because stupidly EA just wants your focus on the remake)</li> <li>Dishonored 2 (not sure why it wasn’t boosted as both 1 and DOTO are)</li> <li>Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen</li> <li>Dying Light (only got the treatment on XSX for some reason)</li> <li>GTA V</li> <li>Middle Earth: Shadow of War</li> <li>Outer Worlds (another one that only got the treatment on XSX, no idea why)</li> <li>Red Dead Redemption 1 + 2 (haven’t heard anything about it so I’m not sure it’ll come)</li> <li>Resident Evil 7</li> <li>Rise of the Tomb Raider</li> <li>Sekiro</li> <li>Sunset Overdrive</li> <li>The Evil Within</li> <li>The Witcher 2</li> <li>The Witcher 3 (I know this one is coming soon, really stoked)</li> </ul> <p>What about you?

DISCUSSION The Series S is a 1080p console

38 Upvotes
<!-- SC_OFF --><div class="md"><p>Microsoft advertises the Series S as a console which is designed to target 1440p, but personally at least I think that this is a bit &quot;optimistic&quot; at best and misleading at worst.</p> <p>The Series S is a fantastic console and I like most of you am very happy overall with it. The vast majority of games however run at 1080p, not 1440p. There are a handful of titles which support 1440p such as Resident Evil VIII, Doom Eternal and Borderlands 3, and some even go higher like Ori and the Will of the Wisps which actually runs at 4K on the Series S. </p> <p>Whilst the Series S can and does run games at 1440p, these are more the exception rather than the standard resolution target for games, and almost all of these are either enhanced older Xbox One S titles or indie games.</p> <p>Microsoft&#39;s own studios don&#39;t even seem to target 1440p. Flight Simulator is 1080p and Forza Horizon 5 which is yet to release, is set to be 1080p as examples. I&#39;m not saying every game from their studios won&#39;t target 1440p, but again it&#39;s more common for these titles to aim for 1080p.</p> <p>1440p is 44.44% of the pixels of 2160p. The Series S only has a third of the GPU power (on paper, other factors such as memory size/bandwidth etc. also contribute) on paper. Theoretically, if the Series X runs games at 4K, the Series S would need to be 5.4 TFLOPS to run those same games at native 1440p.</p> <p>I&#39;m not shitting on the Series S. I absolutely love mine and with the state of the gaming market this past year, the Series S is by far one of the cheapest and most inexpensive ways to get into new games for the foreseeable future. I just think it should be advertised as a 1080p machine. I&#39;d actually PREFER games run at 1080p with a stable framerate, often times even more stable than the Series X, than offer poor performance at 1440p.</p> </div><!-- SC_ON -->

DISCUSSION Why is forza 100gb just like pc and series x?

21 Upvotes
<!-- SC_OFF --><div class="md"><p>Microsoft said that all optimised games would be lighter and that was the reasoning for the hard drive to be only 500GB. </p> <p>Only this game is taking 1/3 of my space now what is this…</p> <p>Edit: i am not complaining about the file size on its own. The game looks gorgeous. I am complaining that microsoft said that on average download should be 30% smaller in series s. However this forza is 100gb on series x and pc. So they gave the series s a smaller hard drive but the same size for all files?</p> </div><!-- SC_ON -->

DISCUSSION Will the series S actually get 120 fps for halo infinite multiplayer?

6 Upvotes
<!-- SC_OFF --><div class="md"><p>When originally tested, the series S was hitting 120 fps in multiplayer. Now that the multiplayer beta has been released, it’s only getting 60 fps on performance mode. Is this just because it’s currently a beta version? Will the series S actually hit 120 fps when the game is “officially” released on 12/8? I’m just bummed to see that the series S is at a disadvantage compared to the series X after it was advertised that they’d both be 120 fps :(</p> </div><!-- SC_ON -->

DISCUSSION End of Life Options for Series S (yes, really)

5 Upvotes
<!-- SC_OFF --><div class="md"><p>Hey all,</p> <p>I have a Series X and Series S, though I only really use the X. As a gamer who still has and uses older generation consoles, I am struggling with the real value of owning a Series S.</p> <p>Okay, I get it. Generationally, sunset support for past gen consoles keeps getting made longer, and with Cloud gaming coming to the console, the little $300 console that could is very likely to earn it&#39;s keep in any gamer&#39;s house. But I can&#39;t help but think of what happens when support (and game servers) end for the digital only machine.</p> <p>With any other console that accepts media, it will have an essentially unlimited life playing original media. Additionally, mods have given many of these old devices a new life playing homebrew or copied/archived media long after it has dried up in the second markets.</p> <p>So my question for you, if you&#39;ve considered it, is what you would like to see the hacking/modding/archiving communities do with the XBox Series S to extend its life after Microsoft turns it&#39;s back on it?</p> <p>Appreciate any thoughts.</p> </div><!-- SC_ON -->
