Microsoft have put themselves in this mess! Either they drop the parity policy completely, pissing off millions who bought the series s believing they would get access to the same games and features. Or they enforce the parity policy partially or fully, meaning people will hesitate buying even the series x, knowing they might miss out on some third party games.
The only real solution I see would be to create a new Series S version that isn’t bottlenecked, and make a replacement policy, so any owner of the current model can ship their console in and receive the new version for free, that solution is extremely expensive, but they could hope that most owners wouldn’t bother.
More realistically they could drop the parity policy, apologize publicly and offer series s owners 1 year of game pass ultimate for free.
