Eric thats a horrible idea and a huge way to slap your customers in the face.

For example, the Series S is in another playing field when it comes to its preformance in all aspects. So comparing numbers which literally mean nothing only to lose out in the long term is not a good look.

Imagine you are one of the kids that saw an Add advertising the Pros specs with the XSS, and you convince your parants to buy one for you due to its price, only finding out in 1 years time, none of the next gen games work on the Pro while the XSS will be playing all next gen games for the next 5 to 10 years. 

You want that to happen to the customers just so Sony can sell more old units?

Is it really though? I mean, is XBSS truly next gen compared to XB1X and XBSX?

If you compare Pro to XB1X, Pro was way overpriced, yet nobody really seemed to care.

I also clearly stated that, "You wouldn't market Pro as next gen, but you would market the SNY brand and specs against XBSS."

As long as they weren't tricking people into thinking it'll be fully next gen capable machine by marketing it that way, then what's the problem? It's similar specs at a similar if not lesser price for a gaming console. Doesn't that exist already?

The thing is, comparing the Pro to any next-gen console implies that it has the same feature set and thus that it would be fully next-gen compatible unless they were to point that out - which would kill the Pro, so they certainly wouldn't go that way either.

Someone needs to look at Series S specs. It's inferior to the Xbox One X in some regards. The One X has 12GB of RAM and 326GB/s memory bandwidth. The Series S has 10GB of RAM and 224GB/s memory bandwith. It's not across the board superior in everyway like the Series X.

OMG you're right.. MS has been lying to consumers and cheating them this entire time! They even had the nerve to discontinue the next gen XB1X and insert a last gen XBSS.

Wasn't and isn't the XBSX marketed as the most powerful next gen console by far? Then how is it that PS5 outperforms it so often, even in third party?

How shameful.

That doesn't mean much.

Modern GPU software can handle bigger textures with less memory than what the One X had. And the S has a much stronger CPU, meaning the GPU of the S doesn't have to pull double duty anymore and support the CPU left, right, and center all the time

And going back to your TFlops comparison: keep in mind that the 6800 trounces the Vega 64 and Vega VII despite both having about the same TFlops than the 6800, and the 5700XT curbstomps them already despite having a lower TFlops.

So all in all, those 4TFlops are certainly enough to beat what the One X had on pretty much every single front, and it doesn't need as fast memory to work with it.
