That would be awesome if that is the case. Wonder if anyone at MS or RB could confirm this yet?

Thinking about it, what would be really awesome if the instrument controllers are backwards compatible and the older games like Beatles Rock Band as well. Then you could play Beatles again with the newer instruments.

As far as I know, you cannot play any of the older RB titles with the instruments for RB4 on the Xbox One.

I think there's an adapter to connect the 360 instruments to your Xbox One?

Now how do I connect my Dance Dance Revolution pad?

Not being able to play Beatles rock band and the other older RB titles all comes down to licensing issues. They are never going to be forward compatible.

The rumor right now is a less powerful Series X will be priced at $200.

My prediction is that this will be a streaming only set top box. Access games through their X-Cloud service. No need for massive hard drive space. MS will offer a subscription service similar to PS Now.

There's very little I am certain of, but I seriously doubt that MS is about to announce a third subscription service for the Xbox.

I thought they said something about XCloud being part of Game Pass Ultimate or something like that.

That makes more sense lol. I guess you would just need to sub to game pass ultimate to use the streaming box. Or you have the option to log into your xbox account and digital purchases would be able to stream to xcloud ?

I just hope they modify the OS enough to stop with the 4gb updates. I have gig fiber and its still tedious.

Could we be getting a price point and a release date from this event?

I doubt it. Seems like this is basically to show off more games due to the disappointing reveal previously.

re: Xbox Series X - 11/10/20

This is from the "consider the source" file. I went to GameStop today and was talking to the store manager about next gen systems. I asked him when did he think pre-orders, release date and pricing would begin? He "looked" at his phone saying he was reading an email GameStop corporate sent him the other day. He said, nothing official, but he thinks within the next two weeks.

Some cool info here

You Are the Future of Gaming

by Phil Spencer, Head of Xbox • Jul 16, 2020 @ 6:30amGames are a source of joy, inspiration, and social connection. They have the power to bring us together, create empathy, and strengthen our social fabric. As we prepare for the next generation, our efforts to make gaming more inclusive, more immersive, more connected, and more social are as relevant and important as ever.

At Xbox, we listen to what you – players, game developers, and content creators – tell us you want from the future of gaming. Based on your feedback, we’re building a future where you and your friends can play the deepest, most immersive and interactive games ever created across your Xbox console, PC, and mobile devices.

At the dawn of the next generation, it’s important to be clear about what you can expect from the future of Xbox.

Our vision has one hero at the heart of it all: You.

And today, I want to share our commitments to you:
  • You will always be welcome. We are building Xbox for you—players from all walks of life, everywhere in the world. We want to make your Xbox community safe, accessible, and welcoming – a place where you can have fun. As we say in our community standards, harassment and hate take many forms, but none have a home on Xbox. Should you feel others are behaving in ways that violate the standards, our safety team will investigate your report and support you 24/7/365 around the globe. And we continue to accelerate new technology to reduce hate speech and toxicity, giving you the tools to create the safe gaming community you want to play in.

    In addition to tools, we commit to bringing more diverse stories to Xbox for you to enjoy. We are empowering creators of diverse backgrounds to develop new stories, advocating for an authentic and respectful representation in games, and championing accessibility so that all can play. Additionally, more than 300,000 Xbox Ambassadors give their time and passion to making Xbox the best place to play and we invite all players to join us on that mission. We still have so much more work to do and will not stop until everyone who plays feels welcome, heard, and valued.
  • Your games will look and play best on Xbox Series X. Xbox Series X is designed to deliver a new level of fidelity, feel, performance and precision never seen before in console gaming. All games will look and play best on Xbox Series X – whether they come from our 15 Xbox Game Studios, like Halo Infinite, or from our world-class publisher and developer partners. Packing over 12 teraflops of GPU power including new technologies like hardware-accelerated Direct X raytracing and variable rate shading, and with four times the processing power of an Xbox One X, Xbox Series X enables developers to provide you with transformative gaming experiences through richer, more dynamic living worlds, more realistic AI and animations, and support for higher frame rates including support for up to 120 FPS.

    Xbox Series X also enables you to spend less time waiting and more time playing, as it virtually eliminates load times with the 40x boost in I/O throughput from last generation. With our custom next-generation SSD and Xbox Velocity Architecture, nearly every aspect of playing games is improved. Game worlds are larger, more dynamic and load in a flash, and fast travel is just that – fast. The Xbox Velocity Architecture also powers new platform capabilities like Quick Resume, which enables you to seamlessly switch between multiple titles and resume instantly from where you last left off without waiting through long loading screens. Right now, Xbox Series X is in the hands of our 15 Xbox Game Studios teams and thousands of third-party developers, empowering them to create a new generation of blockbuster games for you to enjoy.
  • You play new games day one with Xbox Game Pass. All Xbox Game Studios titles launch into Xbox Game Pass the same day as their global release, so you decide whether to purchase each game separately or play them all with your Xbox Game Pass membership. Xbox Game Studios franchises that will launch into Game Pass day one of release include Halo, Forza, Age of Empires, Gears of War, Minecraft, Hellblade, The Outer Worlds, Psychonauts, Microsoft Flight Simulator, State of Decay, Wasteland, Minecraft DungeonsandSea of Thieves—and more new franchises in early development. So, when Halo Infinitelaunches, you and your friends can decide whether to purchase the game or play it with Xbox Game Pass.
  • You won’t be forced into the next generation. We want every Xbox player to play all the new games from Xbox Game Studios. That’s why Xbox Game Studios titles we release in the next couple of years—like Halo Infinite—will be available and play great on Xbox Series X and Xbox One. We won’t force you to upgrade to Xbox Series X at launch to play Xbox exclusives.
  • Your games will not be left behind, thanks to backward compatibility. You will be able to play four generations of games on Xbox Series X on day one. That makes it the largest launch lineup for any new console ever, with thousands of games to play. Our backward compatibility engineers have spent years devising innovative ways for modern, next-gen technology to make the games library you’re building today even better, at no additional cost and with no work from developers. It’s our intent for all Xbox One games that do not require Kinect to play on Xbox Series X at the launch of the console. And because of the unprecedented power of Xbox Series X, most of your favorite games will load faster and look and perform many times better on the new console.
  • Your Xbox One gaming accessories come into the future with you, too. The Xbox Elite Controller and Xbox Adaptive Controller all work on Xbox Series X, so you don’t have to purchase new controllers. We believe that your investments in gaming should move with you into the next generation.
  • You can buy games once at no added cost. With our new Smart Deliverytechnology, you don’t need to buy the same game twice – once for the current console generation and once for the next generation. You always have the best available version of supported games on whatever Xbox console you are playing on, at no additional cost. If you own a title that supports Smart Delivery like Destiny 2, Gears 5 and Halo Infinite, you automatically have access to the version that plays best on your Xbox console. Highly anticipated games from the world’s biggest developers, like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla,Cyberpunk 2077, Marvel’s Avengers and more have already committed to supporting Smart Delivery and more will be announced soon.

    Xbox Play Anywhere digital titles also enable you to buy once and play on both Xbox consoles and Windows 10 PCs.
  • You choose how to jump into the next generation of gaming. We hear from you that you prefer choice and value. With Xbox All Access, you can get Xbox Series X, and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for a low monthly price with no up-front costs, no finance charges and no hidden fees. You get to enjoy an instant library of over 100 high-quality games, join friends with online multiplayer, and experience new Xbox Game Studios titles the day they release, including Halo Infinite, on the fastest, most powerful Xbox ever.
  • You are in control of a healthy and balanced gaming lifestyle. If you are a parent, guardian or caregiver, the new Xbox Family Settings app (Preview) for iOS and Android provides a simple and convenient way to create child accounts, customize family settings, and ensure that your kids have access to gaming that you feel is appropriate.
  • You will get more from your Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership. Finally, today we’re announcing that this September, in supported countries, we’re bringing Xbox Game Pass and Project xCloud together at no additional cost for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members. With cloud gaming in Game Pass Ultimate, you will be able to play over 100 Xbox Game Pass titles on your phone or tablet. And because Xbox Live connects across devices, you can play along with the nearly 100 million Xbox Live players around the world. So when Halo Infinite launches, you and your friends can play together and immerse yourselves in the Halo universe as Master Chief—anywhere you go and across devices.

    Cloud gaming in Xbox Game Pass Ultimate means your games are no longer locked to the living room. You can connect more than ever with friends and family through gaming. And just like you do with your movie and music streaming services, when cloud gaming launches into Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, you can continue your game wherever you left off on any of your devices.
When you add it all up, Xbox Series X is the only next generation console that lets you play new blockbuster games at the highest console fidelity, enjoy the latest blockbuster games the day they launch for one monthly price, play four generations of your games at higher fidelity than ever before, and play with friends wherever you want across your TV, PC, and mobile device. And with Xbox All Access, you can jump into the next generation for one low monthly payment and no up-front costs.

The future of gaming has never been more exciting and limitless. It’s a future you’ll explore on your terms, not constrained by restrictive policies. Where your gaming legacy will not be left behind and where you will not be locked out of new exclusive Xbox Game Studios games even if you choose to stay with your current console for a while.

It’s a future where you and your friends play the most immersive, responsive, and vivid games together on every screen in your life, and where games reach across the world and bring you stories you’ve never experienced before. It’s a future in which you get more value from your games. And where everyone is welcome.

We hope you’ll join us next Thursday, July 23rd for the
for the first look at the Halo Infinite Campaign and more.

Thanks so much for shaping the future of gaming.

-Phil

re: Xbox Series X - 11/10/20

Sounds like good stuff to me.

I didn't expect otherwise, but I'm glad to be able to bring my newly-bought Elite 2 controller over.

Part of me wishes they'd revisit the poorly-announced and never-fleshed-out Family/friend Sharing thing from Xbox One. Obviously, it never came to be, but I could see it being a benefit, finally, in this new generation. Something like being able to share access to a title for a limited time to one friend at a time. That sort of thing.

Merging xCloud into Game Pass makes perfect sense. Glad to see it confirmed. Game Pass is something I was extremely skeptical about, and didn't touch beyond a short trial or two, until it went to "Ultimate." Now, it's a no-brainer for me. I understand and respect that I don't get to "own" the titles, and I appreciate people who avoid it for that reason, but for my gaming habits, and that of my family, it's been a top-tier subscription in our household. Recently, I played all three Metro games because of GP; games I probably never would have tried otherwise, and at least 1 & 2 have become personal favorites. Literally no complaints here. If they could do anything better, it would be to give full "deluxe" access (DLCs, etc.) for their in-house studios. It's weird that I technically "bought" DLC for Forza Horizon 4, even though I don't own the game itself (well... I DO own the disc... I just never have to use it because of GP ). Though I think they've done this for some titles, so it might be more common going forward.

Their commitment and execution of backwards compatibility is admirable, IMO. It's very digital-focused, which reasonably gives people concern that their BC catalog (or entire catalog, for that matter) could disappear at any time, but I just don't see that playing out that way. To be clear, I don't think their version of BC is perfect by any means, but in regard to how the other big competitors are doing it, there's just no comparison. The other options are fine, but they're not to the same level at all.

Agree about Game Pass. I think it’s a great and big bang for your buck service. I think about the only improvement I would like to see as well is DLC. I enjoyed playing Minecraft Dungeons as part of the service and was hoping the new Jungle level DLC would be included but it was not to be. Even if they waited to include the DLC a month after its release I would be happy.

I think part of it is they want you to shell out for the DLC if you like the game enough...

So they're getting rid of the 12 month gold plan and only doing a 1 and 3 month plan...this is BS - does anyone have pricing info on this at all?

You can get a decent 4k TV for like 300 bucks. That should be your priority over getting an Xbox Series X.
