    I've been down on Xbox One the last few years but it does have a few gems. Gears 4, Gears 5 (soon), Ori and the Blind Forest, another Ori coming next year. The Forza games.

    I don't believe Xbox One is not cracked because hackers don't want to. I just don't buy that they cracked total shit like N-Gage. Everything practically has been cracked except the Xbox One except for PS4 past 5.05. It'll probably eventually be cracked, but I wouldn't expect any fast crack for Scarlett.

    That's not what the context of the sentence was, but okay. Even if it was specifically referring to the CPU (is that what you mean?), that in no way translates to four times the performance, not with the amount of compute performed on GPU's. Either the grand total is 4x beefier or it isn't, until clarified.

    its gonna require the cloud to play games. so you will have to pay a service to play anything on the console. The best thing we can do is not support this. Of course there arr plenty of dumb asses that will like paying a service and never owning anything.

    From what I've gotten the cloud isn't required; the console is able to run the games on it's own without it.

    Where in the everloving hell did you read that load of BS? Why would they make such a hefty console to play STREAMED GAMES?

    Supposedly that's only the El Cheapo Diablo Edition of the system. The more expensive, standardly priced (for a new console) will be able to play games on the console itself as long as the game is downloaded. Or did you mean to refer to the console not having a physical means of playing games?

    While I agree that it'd be nice to have a physical way to play games, given how game discs (and some cartridges on the Switch) are literally just the equivalent of CD-Keys that require Day 1 Patches and in some cases some Always Online connectivity (which would be Adam Orth's wet dream), I could easily see them trying to do away with them again considering how similar their hype playbook comes off compared to the Xbox One's launch campaign that Microsoft never recovered from outside of offering better online services than Sony (and Nintendo, though that's to be expected considering how facepalm-worthy Nintendo has been on that front for three consoles in a row), if we're gonna be honest here.

    Just call it the Xbox Red Ring of Death. That would be funny and topical. You gotta be able to make fun of yourself a little bit everyone would love that.

    to those that look forward to cloud gaming: Im happy for you all.
    As for me. this will probably the first gen i will not be buying the games nor the consoles.... Cloud streaming = giving your last remaining rights as a consumer when it comes to games.

    I will probably just stick with current consoles and everything before it. Plenty of beautiful games to be enjoyed.
    I was hoping microsoft pulled a 360 (heh, get it?) from current generation and trends...looks like they are doubling down. More power to them.

    I grew up with unlockables, extra characters when games were finished and midnight game releases that were stable on day 1 on the disc they were imprinted in. Most people dont mind those things being gone but i personally dont recognize this industry anymore.
    If Sony pulls something similar it looks like the switch may be my last console i buy.

    that was the context though. the xbox one x is a piece of garbage. Its being completely cpu bottlenecked so the rx580 is really running like a rx 570 on that console. The difference between a rx580 and a rtx2070(rumored comparison) is that rx580 does 1080p/60fps-1440p/45fps-2160p-35f and 2070 does 1080p/120-1440p/60fps-2160p/45f on Ultra. xb1x does 1080/60 on medium

    i'm tired of these companies claiming their consoles can do 8k do people actually believe these lies? if pc can't do 8k THAN CONSOLES SURE AS HELL CAN'T EITHER!!

    they just released the same console but faster they never fucking learn power isn't everything. it will still have fuck all exclusives since all the games are on steam with FREE online. Don't know why they are even bothering plus with cloud gaming and no disc drive this thing is going to fail harder than the wiiu!!


    absolutely ZERO reason to own an xbox :rofl2:

    Exactly my thoughts - would be awesome if the next xbox would be able to handle 4k@60fps but even that is to be doubted.

    yeah xbox even this gen wanted to go all digital and streaming, and everyone is making streaming services, well nintendo is old school so nintendo will probably never enter into streaming only mode, but sony already said PS5 has a disc drive so there is physical releases for ps5 atleast, if xbox becomes driveless then good ridance for store promotions.

    I just hope it won't be as shitty as the Xbox one...

    Worst console experience ever.
    I tried to play Witcher 3 but due to bad internet I sold it weeks after without playing it. It installed like 1 hour and updated 1 week. Just to push another update which would download another week... Omg.. That console sucks if you have bad internet.

    Did you travel into the future and saw that the Xbox Scarlett didn't have any "real mega games" on it? The console is not even out yet and somehow you have confirmation already? You fanboys are ridiculous.

    Now I'm confused. That's exactly what I said earlier. :lol: It's not a bad system by any means, I quite enjoy it and think it's very well-designed, my doubts begin with claims that they can build something with four times the total processing power at an acceptable price point.

    Same reason your average car can go twice as fast as the speed limit (meaning :faster than it'll ever be used)... Bragging rights.

    An anekdote from work:
    Colleague: I need a faster laptop!
    Me : *sigh* your computer is but a terminal that connects to citrix. All the processing is done on our servers here in the basement.
    Colleague : so... I won't get a better computer?
    Me : I'm saying it's not needed, as it won't perform faster.
    Colleague :ok

    (two days later)
    Colleague(to my boss) : I need a faster terminal!

    Believe me : the thing will sell nearly the same amount, even if only to stream everything.

    i completely agree. It comes down to how much the thing will be priced 18 MONTHS from now. Probably close to $500. So althoug i agree, i expect the prices of the components qto have dropped by a lot by Holiday 2020
