    I'm calling it Xbox SeX, for short. (Seriously, how did they miss that and think it would be okay?)

    Not enough changes or improvements to warrant buying an XBSX controller for my PC, and I can't believe they're sticking with AA batteries for yet another generation. :glare:

    if it's 200 or 250, it'll be great for playing 360/xboxone games, and being entry level for next-gen. I'll probably get one to sit at my folks house so the nephews and nieces can play it.

    On facebook, some guy said that this cheaper version of XBSX, the XBSS, would be sold around 200usd (ok ok 199.99USD)
    if it is true, I think it would run all games of XBSX at same quality except the resolution, which will be maximised to 1080p

    OTOH it makes sense if they're planning to support XB1X through next gen anyway. Two different Microsoft consoles with roughly the same amount of power and in roughly the same price range would be a nightmare from a marketing/consumer standpoint.

    Nintendo did it 37 years ago, but Microsoft simply cannot get the DAMN DPAD RIGHT

    Now the dpad seems even worse than before...

    Thank you Microsoft.
    This move is going to hold back an entire gaming generation. Coders will have to design games able to run on this kind of hardware and even with scalable performances the visual quality will most probably be affected. Now I can undrstand why up to now nothing shown on PS5 or New XBX seems really next gen but have image quality of last 2 years PC...

    I see a lower spec Xbox S completely doable. Simply use the same CPU on both, and then a lower GPU on the S with exact half the performance, then turn down the resolution half the one on the Xbox X and it will be exactly the same. Performing exactly the same, if not slightly faster in some games (due to lower resolution).

    Not everyone cares about graphics, frame-rate and etc... (I included, that's why I buy Nintendo consoles), to be honest, between paying something costing $200 or something costing $500 that run the same games, I will prefer to buy what costs $200 even if it has worse graphics.

    I just want to play the new games that are coming, that is enough for me, besides that I live in Brazil, the new consoles should come costing a fortune here anyway, it is good to have a cheaper option.

    But I'm really wondering how it will be applied in practice, I really don't want this move to hold the entire generation of gaming as they said above and I don't even know if this hardware would be able to run all the games that are coming for years.
