Sounds like a cool concept
Makers of Cyberpunk have come out today saying if you buy one copy, it will work on every system.

Yeah, I applaud this kind of forward thinking, but unfortunately it also makes me want to wait instead of jumping in asap.

I'm still on a launch Xbox One, so maybe I'll jump in at launch for this since I didn't pick up a One X.

Considering the rumors that 2077 is having a tough time running on current gen, it may get me up there as well.

Oodles of updates at Xbox Wire; detailed specs, photos, etc. So extensive that I'm not sure what highlights to list here.



...and Digital Foundry's hands-on.

Re: Xbox Series X: Holiday 2020

That's going to be awesome.

What would be extra cool is if MS allowed you to install Windows 10 on the NVMe expanded storage card, so you can use the xbox as a standard desktop PC.
It wouldn't just be a regular PC either - the specs on this would make it a kick-ass gaming rig. Basically a monster console and PC all for $500 or so.

MS doesn't care how you play their games... console, PC, Xcloud... they just want everyone on their ecosystem. Allowing to use this as a PC would go further in achieving that.

I don't much like the idea of proprietary memory cards.

So like I said, the console is not that big at all.

It's from the bottom of this page:

https://www.xbox.com/en-IN/consoles/xbox-series-x

Coming Thanksgiving 2020

They must have produced a ton already or something if they're that confident in the date with everything else going on. I'm not even sure what Black Friday is going to look like this year.

Also that site is the India site, the US site says Holiday 2020. I'm not even sure why they would put Thanksgiving for India, does that even hold any meaning for them?

Re: Xbox Series X: Holiday 2020

Looks like Nov 2020 is not true:


@majornelson: An Xbox product page in some regions inaccurately listed the launch date for Xbox Series X as Thanksgiving 2020. We are committed to launching Holiday 2020

Maybe I'm overthinking it, but it seems like there's still room in that statement to allow for a November release. Thanksgiving 2020 is a specific day; Holiday 2020 covers a whole bunch of November and December.

I don't see either launching this fall anymore. Kind of a bummer, but ... priorities. I guess Sony could launch everywhere but here and survive, but if the US is still knee deep in the Coronavirus (and recovery) Xbox doesn't stand a chance. The US IS their market.
