    Following the disappointing, but understandable, news of Halo Infinite's delay, we now have better news. Instead of the vague "Holiday 2020" release window previously announced, Microsoft has announced today that its next-gen console, the Xbox Series X, will launch this November. While an exact date is still unknown, The Verge writes that, according to its sources, the console will likely launch on the first week of November.

    While the Xbox Series X will not launch with Halo Infinite, Microsoft notes, as consolation, that "more than 50 new games planned for this year across generations and optimized for Xbox Series X" and "over 100 optimized for Xbox Series X titles, built to take full advantage of our most powerful console, are planned for this year".

    I mean, yeah, they've literally released all their consoles in November so I'm pretty sure everyone already kinda assumed that.

    Same with the PS5, 100% expect it in November as well though whether it'll be same week or later who knows.

    But with COVID-19, it's gonna be especially bad compared to other console launches. Like, I know it was bad with the PS2's launch and stuff like that, but this is a situation where there being a shortage isn't entirely their fault.

    IKR? I was actually looking for that in this post here...

    I mean, they haven't even announced it officially at this point, even though the cat's out of the bag now.

    If Sony keep its tradition, PS5 will also launch with very few units for demand so they can claim it sold out on day one.

    This will be a hard transition for me. I guess it's because I'm not used to it, but I really sort of wish my PS4 controller would work on Xbox lol.

    They're still determining the max amount we'll pay.

    Well just waiting on a price. People scalping these are what's gonna be super annoying to deal with. Hopefully I can nab one. Will definitely be an upgrade from my vcr edition x1

    Not to mention the price of those proprietary SSDs on top of all that! I sure hope you like having to spend more money that could've been spent on games on also being able to update said games, download system patches, you know, all the other stuff games have you DL'ing these days?

    "Proprietary"... Just custom shells to fit nvme drives. The only issue would be software related (ie format)...

    Sticking with the Elite series 2. Unless the sticks somehow are better.

    Like they'd let you do anything to let you use any other M.2 nVME on this system...on PC, on the other hand...

    There's ways to upgrade any Xbox hard drive to date. I doubt we'll be locked out of the SeX

    Have you had any issues with that controller? I've heard that the build quality is less than that of the official XBOne controller, stick drift is still a problem and I heard its worse on the Elite 2 than it was the first one, etc..

    "Locked out of the SeX..." So, we're gonna have accountability partners now!? XD

    I can confirm that stick drift is prominent. On my 3rd one now, and all have had some kind drift. Even if slight. The overall build quality is much better than the 1st Gen. Feels much better to hold and the bumpers aren't as prone to breaking.
