Xbox Series X: The Final Preview
We take our most comprehensive look at the Xbox Series X yet after living with it for a few weeks, including playing new games like Gears Tactics, Dirt 5, and Yakuza: Like a Dragon, plus the Xbox Series X-optimized version of Gears 5 that features a 120hz framerate in Versus multiplayer. We also tackle the topic of heat, Quick Resume, and more!

    there's no way these operating systems are taking up almost 200 GB of space

  • Universal_Wisdom

    Props to the One X being somewhat of a next gen experience without being next gen. I’m glad I could experience it. I’ll be selling it and even after a few years of use, it doesn’t have any problems.

  • Universal_Wisdom

    I hope there’s a massive main menu update for the Xbox Home Screen. After the Series X is in our hands.

  • Universal_Wisdom

    So anyone know how much space i should pave for this console? The cooling fans are somewhat the entire purpose of the console design, and I’m not sure if I should put it on its side.

    Oke about the heat probably not an issue but he says the Series X is a bit warmer then the one X under GPU load so the same game on both consoles sould be more stressful for the One X then the Series X right But still the Series X produces more heat What will that do when we get Games who really use the 12Tflop how much warmer wil it get.

    If you think 60 fps to 120 fps isn't a noticeable difference you might wanna see an optometrist. That's double the refresh rate and if you have a 120hz monitor you can easily see the difference. There's no way you aren't seeing double the frames. Talk about growing old

    This is disappointing. You’re telling me this console will be out in a few days, and it doesn’t have a single next gen-exclusive game on it? People aren’t spending $500 to play old games with resolution bumps, Microsoft needs to acquire/partner with dozens of more studios and ramp up development ASAP. PS5 at least has 3 or 4 true next gen games this year, and way more coming early next year. You don’t have to buy a PS5 and play only PS4 games.

    If someone has a 4K gaming monitor and a 5.1 surround system which only accepts optical in and HDMI for sound , it will be impossible to connect Xbox Series X and PS 5 to this sound system. (New consoles won't have optical out) .

    That first point of there not being any games that aren't available on Xbox one is exactly why I just can't understand why people want to jump into the new generation at launch, just because it's the new thing. And the PS5 is no different. I know people who'll be spending £500+ to play miles morales or AC Valhalla, and simply don't get why you wouldn't just spend literally 10% of that to play them on current consoles.

      @Michael Rackham just get one with hdmi 2.0 ports. 4k 120fps in games are barely achievable by even the 3090 so obviously, 4k 120fps is impossible on the ps5 and the series X. It will be more like 1440p120fps which is pretty fine.

    • Michael Rackham

      I think we're gonna get there quickly. I'm personally excited for Cyberpunk and seeing how it performs. I just wish there were more hdmi 2.1 monitors out there so we could utilize 120hz and the better HDR support.

      @SongJiangShiJin you are missing out on some of best games on Nintendo and PS. I feel sorry for your single mindedness. But if you enjoy the catalogue of old xbox games then so be it. Personally I play the best from all studios.

    • SongJiangShiJin

      @Applied Karate Academy if you tell me the platform where I can play my already owned 400 games and do this on the go as well as at home. I'll gladly switch. Just repeating "it's the worst platform" doesn't make it true. There's no "superior" platform, only personal preferences. After all, we are talking about a fricking toy. Nothing more nothing less

    • Applied Karate Academy
      Applied Karate Academy

      @SongJiangShiJin unfortunately its worst platform so bad choice. But its seems you enjoy which is the main thing

    • SongJiangShiJin

      @Applied Karate Academy lol "pointless". I play Xbox because I enjoy it. It's not about playing every single game that's out there. I quit having multiple platforms when I went to university 15 years ago. After that, I simply haven't had the time. So I choose what offered me the most value on the dollar and offered me full backwards compatibility for the library I already owned. I stopped upgrading my pc 7 years ago because I have a company pc. I'd you have time to piss away, your approach might be feasible. If you just want to to enjoy games, don't worry about getting the "newest games" and are just doing it for fun, xbox is a great service

    As a long time PC player the Xbox One x is actually making me consider getting back into console gaming. Being able to run native 4K at 120 HZ is unthinkable for every graphics card except for the 3080 and 3090

  • Mark Langston

    Not that faster loading times and Quick Resume aren't outstanding features but is it worth $500 when the games that will actually take advantage of the console's power won't be out for 6 to 12 months? Dirt 5 looks cool and all but, I mean... let's not act like the Dirt franchise is a system seller. I don't want to come across as a Sony loyalist but I just don't see a compelling reason to invest into the Series X, at least not now. Maybe once they get some exclusives that take advantage of all those t-flops but when I think about the controller being mostly unchanged from the One/One X as well as the same UI and access to the same library of games via GamePass, not to mention that all of this is also available from a PC, I just don't see the $500 justification. I would rattle off a list of things that differentiates the PS5 from the PS4 but anyone reading this likely already knows, but I commend Sony for the steps they've taken to give consumers a compelling reason -- whether you agree with that strategy or not -- to invest in the PS5.

    "SSD drive", "NVMe SSD hard drive", "hard drive space". Look, can we please use the correct terms for components when you're previewing/reviewing a device? The second D in SSD stands for "drive", so "SSD drive" is redundant. An SSD and a hard drive are 2 completely different components, they are both storage solutions but are fundamentally different in their operation and design. I know this is pedantic, but it comes across as super unprofessional. How are we supposed to trust your coverage on tech if you can't even be bothered to use the correct terminology while covering it?

    They have the next elder scrolls and that’s about it or what matters. All the best games are still on PlayStation or multi plats so it doesn’t matter if it’s 0.001% more powerful... it still had a terrible controller, and a weaker game library which can be played entirely on a superior PC It’s not PS5 Vs Xbox because that’s a no contest, it’s actually Sony Vs Microsoft and game pass, that’s the real choice. Personally I’ll keep playing on PlayStation and PC

    60 FPS won’t tell you the difference between 60 hertz and 120 hertz. The console has to reach those frames in which they don’t. So enabling it won’t make a difference.

  • KamiEuKiTo

    Couldn't they get someone other than Ryan to do this? The guy bleeds green & I'm pretty sure he must have a Harry Potter like X mark somewhere on his body. It would have more credibility if they chose someone who wasn't sold the moment they touched the shipping box the thing came in.

    Worst launch lineup ever. While I love Microsoft's backwards compatibility, buying a new console just to play old games, and new games already available on Xbox One, isn't that enticing. The least they could've done was enhance more 360 games & Xbox One games to run in 4K for launch. I like how old games get HDR, but I wanted more.

      @Max Payne doesn't matter ps5 had the graphical power of a rtx 2060 super while xbox has a 2080ti equivalent. Ps5 is going to be running games at 2k 120fps while xbox will be double that. It's clear which one is the true next gen console. Load times can be boosted through proper formated drives. Even external drives in the future can be faster. Ps5 already lost the race by having a weaker gpu

By then some more next gen games will be out, there should be an updated build model and I’ll wait until there’s some kind of a bundle deal, like a Halo Infinite bundle or perhaps wait until holidays 2021 when the stores have some deals.

    Wow IGN, you guys are really professional 😂😂😂! "The SSD Drive", = solid state drive drive 🙄... It speaks volumes that there are no games at launch made to take advantage of the Series X hardware. Heck, most of the games Microsoft have revealed have no known release date, not to mention no gameplay and many had CGI trailers..... Just imagine, though how much more heat and noise the Series X will put out when it actually does have a game using all its 52 CUs to their fullest (if that day every comes). As for the Series X UI, it is like Microsoft is happy to push this upgrade image for their next gen, rather than a next gen experience (cut and paste controller, Series X form factor looks a lot like One X from previous gen, Microsoft seems to be focusing on older game ports, not pushing games to take advantage of the newer hardware instead they are pushing muti-platform games, UI almost identical). Hardly exciting....

    $220 for a 1TB NVME SSD is disgraceful. You can get PCIE4 M.2 drives with similar performance for less, and those don’t benefit from the same economies of scale that MS can leverage with Seagate to make tonnes of the things. It’s not cost vs convenience when the cost is half the price again of the whole console, that comes with that amount of storage plus everything else. You telling me the 50% the BOM for a series X is it’s solid state storage chips. Pull the other one!
