Even with a mid gen Series Pro Xtreme model, couldn't MS just drop Series S to 720p/60 worst case? The CPU should be able to keep up, so just drop the resolution and upscale.
Many who have a Series S will just live with it for the rest of the gen, and those who can't, can upgrade to a Series X.
I could see MS dropping Series S production mid gen if there's a $499-$599 Pro Xtreme model, along with a $299 Series X.
If the gpu was the problem then sure. But the complain the devs are saying is the ram amount.
Games for the Series are being made to fit the ram of the Series s and then upscale to the Series X. I guess they can make 2 versions to take advantage of both but it will take time and money. And Xbox studios cannot afford to be any slower.
It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.
