Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Xbox Series X Announced (Xbox Scarlett)!

Bad name, the design is different but not necessarily bad, depends where you want to put it in your setup. A lot of the units people have for set top boxes aren't going to accommodate this.



LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

They gave up and made a tower. I wish consoles had cool and whacky designs like the ps5 devkit. Now imagine of ps5 is kinda the same. And they could have curved it a little and added etchings to make it look like an X. Something at least



Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also

After seeing people explain the name more I don't think it's nearly as bad as some are making it out to be. As @smroadkill15 pointed out and as did Klobrille:

The name is pretty much just "Xbox" again, with "Series X" just being the description for the version you have because the multiple SKU rumor is most likely true, or it will probably be in the future. 

If people are able to choose between however many different versions of the new iPhone every year I don't see why they can't handle this. Assuming it's explained well and the marketing is on point I don't see why it should be anything more than: "I'd like the new xbox". "Which series?" then you say series X for the high end model or series S or some shit for the presumably lower end model. 

Still unsure of how I feel about it, but I think it makes a lot more sense viewing it that way.

The name is crap. It sounds like it's part of the Xbox One family of devices... And even shares some design cues from the Xbox One S/X family of devices.

In saying that, I actually like the console design... And I am glad they have not deviated to much from the Xbox One controller design.

Infinite looks bloody amazing. Day 1 purchase for sure.

Xbox: Series S & Xbox: Series X are both perfectly servicible names in today's tech climate are a much better foundation for future iterations, like Xbox: Series 2s & Xbox: Series 2x.

Considering the policies they wanted to enact at the beginning of this gen, I'm not really expecting something positive.

You, not expecting something positive from MS? Shocking.

Anyway, absolutely love the design. Don't like the name. I like the names Microsoft and Nintendo give their consoles.

Well, when they have set a precedent for pretty much the whole gen, it's hard to think any differently. 

Of course, as expected, no addressing the actual point. A very odd disclaimer. Oh well, what me worry?



It looks great. Minimalistic & crisp, a device that I wouldn't try to hide if I am to place it in a modern living room.

Couldn't they just ditch the "Series" that's the main problem with it. It's too long a name. It's like having an "IPhone Series 11". They don't.

Xbox 2X

After the good looking Xbox One X, this design is pretty lame imo.As for the name, most people seem to think it sucks based on what I´ve been seeing, but really, they´ve always been bad at naming these systems..Xbox - Xbox360 - Xbox One/Xbox One X - now Xbox Series X...different from PS systems which are simple, straight to the point, no potential confusion..PS - PS2 - PS3 - PS4 - PS5.

That said, the name Series X implies it´s more than one system so it might be that each system in the Series X line has a different name,so the individual names might end up not being that bad, who knows..

Tried to work out the size of the console by using the controller as scale.

Xbox One Dimensions = 7208cm3 = 33.3cm x 27.4cm x 7.9cm
Xbox One S Dimensions = 4342cm3 = 29.5cm x 23cm x 6.4cm
Xbox One X Dimensions = 4320cm3 = 30cm x 24cm x 6cm
Xbox Series X Dimensions = 6570cm3 = 29.2cm x 15cm x 15cm

So in terms of volume it's smaller than the OG XBO, a fair bit larger than the XBO S/X.
