So you dont know how Xbox is but you avoid it?

If this is true, it might be the first time Microsoft gets me to buy an Xbox...

So you dont know how Xbox is(because you never had one) but you avoid it?



would have no real interest in that with the technology we have right now, Nintendo go and create a console that you can play pretty much anywhere while MS (rumored) to be creating a console that you can only use while you are at home, wired to your router and with absolutely no hiccups in your fiber BB connection.

I mean... for this to best the X1X you're going to need native 4k streaming ability.. that's not going to happen on the majority of the worlds internet right now, unless there is something I'm missing this is a machine which is going to be bouncing around the resolutions like a copy of Wolfenstein 2 on the Switch when the action kicks off... except it's not going to be determined by action on screen but by your housemates desires to download something.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

That sounds indeed interesting. If they nail the latency issues and have a good price on their streaming stuff, I might own my first XBox.

@bold: I agree, if they somehow manage to bend the laws of physics that would indeed be impressive :D



I can't quite bend my head around that "collision detection locally" - wouldn't that require all game logic to run locally (so CPU is local), and than cloud to renders image and stream it back?

Here's my question:
If that streaming box is not a powerful console, wouldn't a generic XBox1S already be powerful enough? So why would one need to buy this streaming box at all if one owned an XBox1S?



Why not fit both in the same package, as promissed for the One back in 2013?
Also, yes, there will be "this game only runs on XB4", just with "if you are offline" added ahead.
PS will reign with little competition again, MS is already trying to shoot its own feet with 2 different systems to mess consumers mind.



this will be done by sony also

the Big part is how they structure their subscription service

it could require a hardware solution, that the Xbox One S just doesnt have.

You ll still need to fork out another 125$ or so, for this streaming console.

Streaming console
+its cheap (125$ vs 400-500$)
-input delay is greater than normal console (more difficult to aim in shooters, harder to time jumps in platformers ect)
-less graphics (compression leads to loss of quality, even if minor its there)
-requires internet/servers to be up to play any and all games
-requires Unlimited Download Internet types, or this will end up costing you more than a normal console.

Could be a hit... I could see Playstation guy thats mainly want to try 1 or 2 Xbox games, getting this type of console, for as a console for kids too.

Probably it will be far more cheaper then the Xbox Ones S
