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.
Curious...why did you list games like FH4, Gears 5, and SoT, since they’re just XBO games? Is there something special about them over other backwards compatible games for XSX?
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.
