Obviously should be taken with a grain of salt, but I thought this was an interesting take.  Good rebuttal regarding dev kit comparisons. 

There is a point within this video I was always wondering about when the rumor of the PS5 is stronger than scarlette.  The current Dev kits are not actual silicone but instead just a PC with specs that is usually higher then the actual console but not necessarily a benchmark for either system.  Until actual units with the Chips that will be shipping are sent to developers we really would not know which system is technically stronger.  Also hardware accelerated ray tracing and physics can play a big role in how the 2 systems stack up.  I believe Sony and MS will have hardware accelerated Ray tracing but I believe their implementation will be different and that MS used their own tech while Sony will use some form of AMD tech.  If AMD tech is not ready by holiday next year then Sony could potentially not ship next year which would be very interesting.

I know everybody else is buying anaconda to support sales ? but for me If Xbox one x is still being supported till another anaconda mid upgrade in 9th gen . I'm gonna still use Xbox one X I would still show my support in buying lots of Xbox games I just hope it's true what phil spencer said Xbox one x being forward compatible? If not then i'll gladly upgrade to anaconda ^^.

My One X is still very new (a year maybe, not even?). I won't be upgrading until at least one price cut in I wouldn't think.

That could change if the Anaconda does something extraordinary, but thats hard to imagine unless its at an equally extraordinary price point. I just bought a pretty solid gaming laptop, so the reason to upgrade for me would have to be convenience/games related, not graphics focused (i.e. I like gaming on consoles/TV).

I'm not going to play any upcoming AAA game from now on as they will likely all see a Scarlett port.
So to me it doesn't matter if it's forward compatible or not. As usual I will wait a year or so until it got a price cut and/or a nice bundle (not 1st party bundle though as these games will be available on Game Pass).

Still have tons of X1 games to play. However I might consider it if Scarlett does some BC magic and makes all games run in 4k60FPS lol.



Has anyone been looking at the UK charts lately? Last week Forza Horizon 4 has been in the top 5 of the individual and all format charts. Also other Xbox games like Sea of Thieves and Forza Motorsports 7 are doing well even Forza Horizon 3 is making it on the list.

wow took Call of Duty WWII 20 months to get below 15€.
Finally bought it and Spyro Reignited Trilogy for about the same price.

Looks like Activision needs some money lol.

I wouldn't buy Scarlett to support sales.. If new games run on X with good performance I'm in no rush to buy a new console again. 

Of course, if Scarlett offers 60fps framerate for Sea of Thieves then I'll pick it up asap. 



If Halo Infinite is Scarlett exclusive, I will have no choice but to buy. No way in God's Green Earth I'm missing a Halo release.

    Gold games take a long time to get announced again.
