That thing is dead ugly. And why is the disc slot at the bottom??? They might as well have just called it the Xbox Third Place and at least been accurate about it.

The name is dumb but literally who cares. Plus now you have to call it the SEXbox (vs the previous XBone), so maybe it is low-key genius.

This is going to look great looming over my future PS5 I never touch.

Also, it obviously can be laid on it's side to put the disc reader at the relative top, that is a pretty dumb complaint though.

I continue to be surprised that they haven't just given up on gaming and either sold, spun off, or closed their Xbox division.

Plus a million points for using Alan Watts voice-over though.

Evil in his Xbox hate makes any liberal look like a puppy dog against Trump.

That will never happen. Sony is more likely to go belly up first by running out of funds.

DO YOU FUCKING REALIZE that Microsoft has 14 times the market cap of Sony? They could buy Sony outright and NOT EVEN NOTICE.

I'm buying it, screw the haters. And if PS5 is more powerful, that will be my lead console. But I doubt it.

That thing look slick as fuck. Like what Steam machines should've looked like. Looks sophisticated, classy, and expensive. Does not look like something for kids, and I am glad, but that may hurt them in regards to parents buying them for kids. But whatever, not my problem.

Also will be convenient if I want to put it on my desk and use with mouse/kb. the current Ps4/Xbox are not good for that.

Looks cool!

hopefully you can use those xbone elite controllers on the new sexbox.
Ive seen that you connect kb/mouse for the current console generation, but how well do games support this?

This thing is a failure in name & form and Phil was already doing damage control a while back about it not being as powerful as the PS5.

Other than the XboxSeX jokes, I'm not seeing the point here.

I'm beginning to think that this is the end of the Xbox brand. How much longer are they going to continue throwing away money and getting nothing in return except B quality Halo & Gears of War games?

What are the comparison specs on this vs PS5? Microsoft made so many mistakes with this current gen console. We'll see if they've learned from the mistakes.

They haven't announced any specifications yet, except that we know Sony will be using a new type of hard drive that isn't even available at retail yet and the XboneSeX will be using a regular SSD.

Microsoft's Phil Spencer has done a bunch of interviews where he has hinted that it isn't going to be the "World's most powerful console" again, which is way out of character for them. It makes me think that they know that the PS5 will have both a faster CPU and faster HD. Otherwise they would be going out of their way to keep pimping it up as the world's most powerful console.

Now they are just calling it the "Most powerful Xbox ever." That's quite the significant change in marketing doublespeak.

It is also telling that a month ago they were calling it four times as powerful as the Xbox One X and now they are only calling it twice as powerful as the Xbox One X.

I don't quite understand what this product even is. Sure it's a game console, but I thought the trend was to make these things smaller instead of larger, so why the mini-fridge? What could this thing be housing that necessitates the big case? Or what else can it be used for that we don't know yet?

You got me. It's shaped like something they want you to put on your desk and hook up to a monitor, but that just isn't how people play console games. I think because the are rolling out all their exclusives on the PC at the same time some idiot in marketing sold them on the idea of making it a "tower" like a PC.

Like somehow that was going to woo over PC gamers? If I was a PC gamer, I wouldn't need this thing in the first place, my PC would be more powerful and now they both play the same games.

And the name... Xbox Series X? WTF does that mean? Is there going to be a Series Y or a Series A or Series B?

One thing I have to give it to Sony with just sticking with the PlayStation and a number. Make it easy to understand. The 5 is newer than the 4. The 4 is newer than the 3. It's simple.

There are so many different SKU's for the Xbox at this point, I don't know if consumers would even understand that this is an upgrade over the XboneX.

I completely agree. I got confused when they released the, what, Xbox One S and Xbox One X? So now their latest consoles will be the XBox One X and XBox Series X? Are they even paying attention to what they're naming these things?
