Call me an early adopter, but it’s only 2023 and I just bought a new Xbox Series X. I didn’t check in advance what the news was. I chose the Series X only because I have a collection of boxed games and want to be able to play them, not because of the higher performance over the extremely cheap Series S.
Just a few thoughts:
The whole system is exactly the same as it was on the previous Xbox (One). I don’t know if that’s an advantage or not, but I was looking forward to something newer.
It’s brutally fast. Booting, launching games, switching between games.
After plugging in an external drive from my old Xbox, all my games loaded. Nice, but I want to play them from the SSD so I wiped it anyway and use it for records.
I love the design, but … because of its size, it won’t fit under my IKEA TV table. I had to put it up on it :)
