    I hope they are working on the simulation physics aspects of the game.....

    Here’s some better contrast pics.
    I‘m not a huge console guy but I like the design, it looks great.
    Some won’t and will have to rethink their entertainment area to accommodate the height.

    Hope not, iam from GT to Forza because it's more relaxing to play if you ask me... It needs some improvements but no simation.

    So the XBSX, I like it. It'll sit nicely on the opposite side of my cabinet on the floor. Sub one side (looks like that just more depth) & XBSX on the other side, sorted.

    The name is closer to the Red Bull X series in my opinion. :lol:

    Di.. did you read my mind ? .:eek:

    Im sorry but how can you call this original? Sure Playstation naming is standard and boring but "it just works" while with the Xbox required 0 seconds of thinking at least the Xbox one X had some meaning here its like we get Microsoft tis an Xbox we are not stupid.

    It looks like a brick for god sakes. That's a terrible decision.

    Because while still bad, it's more original than what Sony does.

    'XBox One X' initials spell 'XBox'.

    XBox1 'S All Digital' initials spells XBox 'sad'.

    XBox Series X abbreviated is XSX (Excess X).

    You are entitled to your opinion but again how is it original ? It takes the standard Xbox name + the first letter of the word Xbox if we are talking about original console names Sega is the best example.

    Right? Games are way more important than how it looks or how it's named.

    Another plus it seems to me is the grill at the top with a bigger form factor allowing for better cooling of the system.

    Why are some people saying this is basically a PC? It may be more powerful than current generation consoles, but I'm sure there won't be various OS and hardware settings to fiddle with for all eternity (like there are on PC).

    It’s a Mini ITX.
    Consoles to me have always looked like a VCR, this design is refreshing.

    The XBox Series Extreme X wouldn't be appropriate for your list I suppose.


    You need to have a word with a few German (amongst others) car manufacturers. ;)

    Not fussed on backwards compatibility. If I want to play old games I can do it right now.

    I’m more interested in how they use the power of these new consoles for new games and new ideas. Especially in terms of AI and how they could use it to take games to another level and not just then relatively linear games we have now.

    The design in inoffensive and has clearly been design to fit with the aesthetic of modern tech areas. I.e black blocks. It’ll be anonymous and that’s perfect. Interesting to see the addition of a share button and elite style D pad on the controller.

    I didn't even see the new PS5 and I already like it more.

    Is this going to have an optical drive that I can put my old 360 game disks in and play, or am I going to be expected to re-buy everything and download it onto the SSD?

    Rectangles are two-dimensional. A three-dimensional shape with six rectangular faces where opposite faces are equal is called a cuboid.

    Or a box.

    It seems like a bad design for something that will primarily go under people’s TV’s.

    As a survivor of Nintendo's Wii U era, it's not necessarily a trivial concern. :ouch:
