    do you realize we are not all internet famous reviewers or rich and famous Hollywood stars and most of us wont get a series x but maybe until next year because of the scalpers bots shortage and of course the lack of care of Microsoft?

    The reason i'll wait for xbox series x is because I want a special edition version of the series x. Based on previous consoles those special editions usually come out 6months to a yr or so. Also you get way better value for money if you wait. The price would of dropped or they may release a package with console an few games. I can wait till they make series x games because i havent gotten sick of the previous console yet.

    To me, there's not a big difference between them, you have to really study the games up close to notice all that much. As a gamer and game developer for the past 30+ years, I remember when one generation to the next was so huge that they didn't even feel like the games were in the same era, anyone else remember those huge jumps? Think for example NES to SNES, PS One to PS2 or Sega Saturn to Dreamcast.

    Paying over $500 to play old games with slightly better performance, and looks. Uhhh NO!! Give it a year or so then drop some cash. My One X is just fine, even the Pro has the most beautiful exclusives ever made!! The PS5 will NOT make a huge impact on Uncharted 4, Legacy, God Of War etc. And on my X I only play 3rd party titles anyway. So why would I want another one. I don't get peoples logic. Want 60fps, get a gaming pc for cheap. I have one but rarely use it, simply because i don't care. And DOOM is one of the best optimized last/current gen games ever. Also it looks AWESOME on the One X, get your eyes examined dude. Also if you're waiting for it to load, get up off your ass and go pee. Or make a hoagie. ha!!

    Pretty sure the hair artifacts on Series X around 7:20 was the TV’s smooth motion feature at work by inserting frames when the game is less than 60FPS. My Sony TV does this when Motion is set to Smooth.

    Love DS1 and 2, you fo' real with the extra shit can see on the One X? (You mention dust) Cos I dont believe the One X would improve on what the original Xbox One would do as its a 360 game and I've replayed on the OG One. It still looks good though.

    xbox 2027: Xbox One Xeries XxX^x can i be honest? really you are satisfied? its like comparing a 2020 build with a similar budget in 2013. to be honest, i dont get how ps4 as xbox are able to make consoles with parts that if you were to put in a pc would cost more than the console. for example xbox series x (again stupid name) apparently can be compared with rtx 2070-2080, and thats just the gpu part, and already we are seeing an xbox that should cost a couple 100 more dollars. the same is going on with ps5. are we getting the stick or are these consoles making in the losses otherwere? in order to be able to compete with pc it has to give way more performance pr $ than pc.. edit: yes i cant share my enthuse enough over the fact that this spec is what will stick/define gaming the next 6-7 yrs. in 2013 i really and i mean really wanted 2020 to be the time where games and physic engines combined with graphics really and i mean really took off. and i know now that games wont be that much more different... i just hoped for a leap in tech i guess..
