That email is just a way of covering their ass in case something goes wrong. It should be fine for most people.

Maybe already stated, but in regards to the add-on hard drive. Can we still use the one we have now? Just that you would not be able to have any games on it that are specifically Series X games?

Yes you can still use a HD. It will play Xbox One / 360 games. Just not Series X games. Go back in this thread. There is a tweet with a chart explaining it all.

Thx Deftones, was having issues seeing it. Main thing I saw was how expensive the new external drive was. But should be able to mange with the current external I have and the internal 1 Tb on the new X holding the Series X games just fine.

I did not get anything from Target, but their expected delivery already mentioned the following day and not launch day for when it was going to be delivered with a 1 week window.

Digital Foundry does their thing, focused on backwards compatibility for this round. Sounds fantastic...

I didn't watch it either, but skimming through summaries/responses on another forum, the big things were games with dynamic resolutions and/or unlocked framerates as well as load times. Dead or Alive 6 at 4K/60fps. Monster Hunter World's framerate leaping from 34fps to 59/60fps. GTA 4 at a locked 60fps.

It's a Digital Foundry first deep-dive into one of the core functions of a brand new console. I'm not sure why you'd expect anything shorter.

tl;dr - Thing good.

How's that?

Just found out I might be getting this on launch. I have a hook up I didnít know about. Might pay like $50 extra, but no leg work, waiting and shit. I saw load times were reduced from minutes to seconds and even though this guy didnít have access to any Series X dedicated, he saw consistent frame rate on One games and you can have quick save which saves 6 games at exact points at once! Thatís bananas. Even though not 4K can still take advantage of that. Iím sold!

Re: Xbox Series X - 11/10/20
 
so just to be clear...this can lay flat (horizontal) and i can use my hard drives and use games from it, correct? would the speeds be the same on those games in hard drive or would i have to transfer all the games to SDD in order to get full power? thx.

Tom Warren makes a valid point.


It shows that MS is pretty confident in what they have if they're willing to pass along review units to uncontrolled testing this early; even if they're using NDAs to limit what reviewers can talk about publicly on a schedule, which is nothing new.

That said, I hate this slow trickle of info. I'd rather they all have freedom to talk about all of it, not just bits and pieces at a time, but that's how these things go.

They have no games to play on it though, right? Just back compat which is the buzz they're looking for.
