Honestly love it so far, it's fast looks beautiful and man is it quiet
It's awesome. I just wish the UI looked new though to go with the new box and new gen.

And man is it heavy. It looks like a high quality, classy little PC.

When I added it online to my MS account it showed up as Xbox One. This is weird. I'll see if I can change its name.

27 November this beast will be mine

Microsoft have a good chance to compete with Sony in Saudi Arabia, big market that was mainly for Sony because they invest big here

Now a lot of youtubers have the console and did reviews and people on Twitter talking about it and the gamepass subscription

We already know that the pre-order numbers exceeded microsoft expectations.

It will be interesting to see how it will do in the future

yeah mine did that as well, weird, I only wish there were more Enhanced next genish games, Valhallas amazing but no ray tracing is kinda a bummer, Oh well the fast loading and switchings Good enough.

Controller feels great, they have taken some nice touches from the Elite 2.

Is it slightly smaller, the Series X controller feels better in the hand.

Love it so far, coming from OG Xbox is night and day!

Finally have 4K and HDR, loading Forza Horizon 4 as I speak

Damn those are some big updates for Series X optimised games. Gears 5 was like 60GB, Forza Horizon 4 was about 60, think sea of thieves was about 30.

You can also go into the manage game screen and view the file info on the installed game, and it tells you the AppModel:GDK or XDK, Gen:Scarlett or Durango, and some other also pretty useless info haha.

I posted a similar picture a few hours ago in the official Xbox thread but here’s mine all set up. I picked it up this morning about 12 hours ago from EB Games in Australia. I’ve got it connected to an LG 4K monitor and I’m using a 1Tb Samsung T7 SSD for my external storage. The new controller is nice but I still like my Elite 2 more so I’m going to primarily use that still. It really is an awesome machine so far. Hats off to the engineers at Microsoft 😊

So I have my Xbox Series X plugged in, updated and all of that, but it can't find any of my cloud data from the Xbox One, so none of my saves transferred. Am I missing something here? I thought this was all supposed to just work?

3 pages on launch day, isn't that kind of sad.

Edit: Not baiting, genuinely, what's up with that?

Costco.com has the X and S available fir members only with estimated shipping week to 11/23. Both are bundles with an extra controller.

Sure they’ll go fast (if not already) as Wari64 tweeted links, but available as of a couple minutes ago though.

Picked up my Series S this morning at Target. I was able to order one for store pickup last night around 1:30am EST. They lasted in stock about an hour online in terms of availability depending on specific store, so the idea of having store pickup only based on your area definitely gets rid of the bots and scalpers and made the process pretty smooth --- if you were online at the right time.

I was going to get the X but don't really need all that power and didn't want to spend $500. The S is a sleek little console and I really like it so far.

Pickup this morning around 8am was smooth, store wasn't crowded or anything and there were a few other customers waiting in line to pickup the new XBOX. Really smooth and easy launch day. Honestly, the smoothest launch day of any console as far as I remember.

More people are interested in PlayStation than Xbox in particular after the generation they both have had. besides the Xbox OT is busy with launch talk.

I got my Series X this morning and will get a PlayStation 5 in 2021.

U.K. here and Warzone has been downloading most of the day here and once done there is the next gen patch so I don’t think I’ll be playing it today. Been getting as avg of 15mbps.

Yeah, they had two extra but 25 or so showed up. They all left when u arrived and the employee had to give them the bad news. It says it on the door so not sure why people continue to wait so long for nothing.

Have fun with X/S guys. I'm waiting it out for a bit.

Costco Canada FINALLY has a tab, but it's only for Series S. And when you click it all it shows is a controller?!?!? lol

Considering how out of stock next gen systems are, looks like it'll be 2021 availability there for X.

I don’t think the patch has been released yet.

Mine just got a 37 gb patch and it specifically called it an "Upgrade" and not just a patch.

Dude you quoted might not have gotten the upgrade or it didn't trigger, maybe try starting the game over or something

Aside from that. System is a BEAST and its so snappy, I really dont care about either systems UI's or menus but I can't lie I was cruising around them all morning cause of how fast it is.

Quick Resume is Super convenient...was playing some assassins creed, went and ran a race in forza, then jumped to ori and ran around just to test it out, went back to assassins creed where i was literally mid jump and the game just picked up right there lol.

Hmm. My earlier comments about cloud saves not working appears to only apply to the two Ori games. Every other game I've tried since has the cloud saves show up just fine. Disappointment gone, more confusion as to what happened to my Ori saves.

Worst part about setting it up is waiting for all the games you had to re-download. Saying that, i saw The Medium on GP and have it installing... is it out or is this just a pre-load?
