    I got my 360 for Bioshock and Mass Effect.

    I picked up a 360 Arcade in 2009 and both it and my Elite have disc drive issues.

The two kinds of games are different, and have significantly different design styles, distribution methods, and game genre selections. Computer gaming and console (video) gaming are NOT the same thing."

    In case any of you didn't think the DDR3 in the Xbone was a handicap...

    The Xbone was barely doing 1080p in most games. The extra memory bandwidth wouldn't have done much for what was pretty much a 720p GPU in the launch Xbone.

    So Xbox Series X will not have any exclusive games the first 2 years MS claims. I'm kinda mixed on this. It is cool current Xbox One owners get the same games but outside of a resolution bump (? maybe), there does not seem much reason to upgrade. Esp since all Xbox games are on PC. Sony seems they will do a traditional console cycle approach. Exclusives at launch. Rarely are launch games really worth it tho so there is that. (not counting cross-gen exclusives eiher)

    Typically I like to wait 2 years anyway. When games start coming out that truly are exclusive and take advantage of new hardware. I just wonder if this will hurt Series X sales somewhat.

    I think this is a better strategy and one I wish every company would adopt. Support your old hardware as long as you can and let the consumer decide when they want to upgrade. Either way they're buying the games so who cares?

    I'm almost willing to bet that will only hold true for the 1st year given how long Halo and Forza have been in development I doubt during the game Pre Production and design stage any of that was done with Series X in mind, so its a easy PR sell You can have the same game on 2 different platforms and it looks vastly different and where even if it's the same game with the same gameplay one will see and hear the difference. I loved the Master system but there was no way I was going to play Golden Axe or Ghost N Ghouls on it, when you had the Mega Drive. There was a night and day difference between Forza Horzion II on the Xbox One to the 360 and Fifa just looked so much better on the One.

    I do like how it looks like you only have to buy the game once mind and how more importantly all your pads and gaming wheels will work going forward. It was always a pain needing to buy a new racing wheel for the new console.

    Can't wait myself. Sold off 250 quid worth of stuff on eBay and put in the works union saving account and she's paying the rest for my Christmas Present 2020

    I've invested $900 into my PC build, with the addition of an i9-9900K, 1TB NVME drive, 16 GB of DDR4-3200 memory and an Asus ROG Maximus Hero XI Wi-Fi motherboard. It'll cover what ever the next Xbox will be, considering that all of it's titles will be available through the MS store. It's also cool to have Game Pass for about $6 a month on PC.

    Exactly this. I'm also excited about the possibilities for back compat games. With how far 360 and PS3 emulation have come on PC including forcing higher native resolutions and making 30fps capped games run at 60fps. The back compat team have already proven themselves to be wizards on the XB1/X and with power the series X is packing they should be able push it even further compared to this gen. Sadly it looks like the PS5 is just going to run in a downclocked compatibility mode for PS4 games which would likely prevent them from getting any improved performance (except maybe load times).

    Yeah, I can't wait. The BC programme was so amazing on the One and while I expect every One game to be BC and the 360 and OG Xbox already BC on the One to be fully BC.
    I'm hoping for more 360/OG Xbox titles to be added to the list and how games with a dynamic screen res will look on the series X. Before Halo V was One X patched, one saw a big jump in how the game looked running on the One X
