Here are the first impressions of the next-gen console
Calling it next-gen seems inappropriate as we are currently witnessing it. The current generation game console from Microsoft is sure to offer impressive hardware, handy features like quick resume, fast loading and the ability to play games at a cheaper price with Xbox Game Pass.
Note, however, that this cannot be called a proper verification as the console has just been shared. So this is more of an overview of what we’ve seen so far. Listen.
The essence of the X Series is performance. When you unzip it, you’ll be greeted with the Microsoft “Power Your Dreams” tagline wrapped around the console. The X Series doesn’t have much going for it in terms of looks as all of the focus has been on its performance. It comes with a power cable, an HDMI 2.1 cable, a controller and two AA batteries. The Xbox logo on the console is the power button. The console is smaller than we thought when we first saw it, but still quite heavy.
One surprising factor is how quiet it is. No matter what game you play, it stays calm. However, we cannot guarantee that it will stay quiet when running games with 12 teraflop games, but it won’t be for a while. Series X booting takes much less time compared to previous generation consoles.
The “Quick Resume” feature introduced by Microsoft was very helpful. You don’t have to wait for it to load when switching between games. It is simply picked up from your last save point.
In summary, the console is solid. A second review will be provided as soon as next generation games are played.
