Are Xbox Series X owners feeling deflated already?

Well I ordered one

Then have changed my mind

Tried to cancel it as I'd never use it

They say they might not be able to cancel it

 

lol

 

Just to let you know, we’ve contacted our supplier to ask them to cancel your order for QQLK6. When this has happened we will update the status of your order on My Account to ’cancelled’.

There is a small chance that the supplier will be unable to cancel your order because it is already on its way to you. If your order is delivered, then please return it in the normal manner.

Thanks for shopping with us.

Kind Regards

Just refuse delivery and it will automatically go back.

Well I was going to say you could call it a treat for yourself for Christmas.lol

Also you could try selling it on here or online etc. if you've got the time for it. I'm sure someone wanting one will snap it up straightaway.

I don't know how to describe it, but it's much more complex and utterly delightful. They don't move just their feet; everything moves and in different directions . . . and all of it graceful."  Starship Troopers, Amen!

Next time I would say keep it for a few months and see how you go with it. You could always sell it after if you change your mind on it.

Just ordered mine for deliver tomorrow. I don't really know why. I don't play much xbox any more but I just had the urge to get one before Christmas - maybe because having a console at Christmas reminds me of being a kid? 

 

Anyway, it turns out there isn't a huge amount more on the series x that my xbox one can't do...?!

It's a weird one, because I think the Series X does a lot of cool things. I think the hardware is fantastic and the value proposition of Game Pass is great. If you've got a bunch of old games, the Series X will also run them seamlessly and in a lot of cases even upgrade them for free. It's a machine that does a lot right and does well by its audience.

 

It's just.. not as exciting as the PS5. I don't think the PS5 has even had a particularly sparkling year, but it at least has some features and games that are new experiences. I think the Xbox is a really nice upgrade if you're already really deep into that ecosystem, but the PS5 makes a better case for a new product/generation/leap forward. 

 

If you've got one and going to unbox it and use it regardless, you can do a lot worse than just grabbing a month of Game Pass (I think this should only cost you £1?) and get downloading whatever takes your fancy to have a look at.

The game aspect is the playable game bit I'm interested in - looks astonishing


 


It is great — but as a tech demo it is just bare bones and is virtually impossible to do on a larger scale using current hardware. A full game on this level would be hundreds of gigabytes and would most likely run into huge memory issues and other problems if it was scaled up.

 

Still — it is impressive for what it is!
