Respect to all differing opinions, but for my taste, this lineup is brutally dull. Will not be getting an XSX or S anytime soon, but hopefully MSFT can convince me in the next few years with some good games. I got burned pretty bad on my XBO purchase. But MSFT is definitely playing to win now.
Yes, Forza Horizon 4, Gears 5, Sea of Thieves, The Outer Worlds, and Ori 2 are all getting Series X optimized. More than just backwards compatibility, which would display those games with Xbox One X settings, those 5 games are getting actual next-gen upgrades, for free. Gears 5 in particular is getting a big upgrade, 4K/60 fps singleplayer, 4K/120 fps multiplayer, with better than PC ultra graphics settings on the singleplayer. Forza Horizon 4 is 4K/60 fps with PC ultra equivalnt draw distance. Sea of Thieves is 4K/30 fps. Outer Worlds is 4K/30 fps. Ori 2 is 4K/120 fps. All will get faster load times too thanks to the SSD.Last edited by shikamaru317 - on 13 October 2020
