Just finished helping my wife set hers up. That auto HDR is pretty amazing. There isn't much new to play but everything looks better than our one X (now on the bedroom replacing the OG one) and the games will be coming. Im waiting on the doom eternal next gen patch. The console looks great on our TV stand even horizontal.

I moved my ps4 pro upstairs to the office to open a pS5 slot when I finally get it but I really hope they have a different design option or at least color scheme by then. A lot to like and really no negatives so far on the series X. Im very impressed.

On a side note: I have been hoping that everything upcoming would be crossplay (so my wife and I could play together. Honestly though I wouldn't even be to upset if I have to get a series x for the office now that I have put my hands on it. Might even give me a reason me to put an OLED on the office wall.🤔

Login servers seem to be down now here in Germany. I should not have shut down my system. This was forseeable. At least download servers are working and games are still updating. This can take a while.

Edit:
ah, servers are back.
Now I can sync my savegames and if they are down again, at least I can play the games.

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.


I had to download the lot too, 130mbps average. Sometimes pausing and unpausing works for speed?

Is there any way to "favorite" games? There's a ton of games I'm wanting to download from Game Pass Ultimate, but I won't have space for them all, and I'd like to have a list of what's next to download.

If you hit start on the tile you should be able to "Add to Play later" Then you will get a line of play later tiles in the gamepass section.

The most gorgeous consoles ever made, I am in awe. The Series X is massive, certainly much bigger than I thought. When I saw the vents first I gasped.

Hilariously enough it took me a while to realize the reason why I couldn’t log into my outlook account on my phone. It’s tied to my Xbox ID and the login servers went kaput!

Console looks amazing. A classy piece of kit.

My Series X was delivered. I opened the box and realized I have no idea where I am going to put this fucking thing lol

I had planned for a vertical placement but it's gonna have to be horizontal.

Liking it so far. Had a few issues...needed to restart it a few times, and downloads are taking forever, and sometimes freezing, but the machine itself is nice.

Dug the setup with the iPhone app. So easy.

I know it isn't optimized but Jedi Fallen Orders respawn loading seems pretty long. I never played it before so maybe its still a lot faster. Seems like at least 15 seconds. Closer to 20 maybe.

I am not liking the controller. It's too damn small. The only thing I like are the texturized grips, but I had some last gen Xbox One controllers that had that.

Has anyone had any issues with games from your old Xbox one external games not showing up on XSX, only a select few showing on XSx. When i switch to XB1 back to they're all there. I hope I've not got to redownload all of them😪

This is drastically better than the original. Dieing could take a couple minutes to spawn back in depending on the environment and was one of the prime criticisms of the game.

*Also posted this in the OT thread hopefully someone sees this and can offer some input

My wife is setting up her Series X right now and she got to a screen that says "This console comes with" and then underneath that it says "Xbox All Access" to the right of that screen it says Xbox All Access - Available - Included with this device. With Xbox All Access, enjoy 24 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Including: and then it goes on to list perks of Game Pass Ultimate. Down below in smaller font it says "To share this with others in your household, make it your home Xbox in Settings > General > Personalization > My Home Xbox.

This console wasn't purchased via All Access... isn't that the monthly payment plan? We purchased this with MS Points and remaining balance debit card.

Also, we have my son's X1X set as her home console right now so he can get her digital games and stuff but this says to share with household set THIS xbox as home xbox?

We are going to select "decide later" here but i am confused... is everyone else getting this screen?

We can click on "Claim It" but don't want to be charged for anything or mess with current account/GPU subscription etc

Question,

Do you guys think its safe to stand this on my sub? I had it in my entertainment stand, its a SNUG fit, and I was going to move it to the top of the stand because its better looking than the ps5, was going to stick that in the stand.
The xbox gets pretty warm, so I stood it up on the sub. I assume it wont be vibrated enough to cause any damage to discs? Not worried about the HD since its SSD

I personally wouldn't do it. Mostly because of the disc drive and fan

Not a good idea whatsoever. Don't do it.

For a console that gets slammed for having no games, it sure is impossible to find one anywhere. It’s been absolute chaos trying to get one on launch day or even week.

There were still some available at my local target few hours after open and I live around the Portland Metro Area(not portland itself)...store got 16 combined between X and S. If Halo actually looked good and was launching with it I may have bought a Series X but meh, no point for at least a year imo

I was just able to order a Series S from Walmart. Will probably pick it up tomorrow.

I can wait until next year for the Series X that I'll get using XAA.

When you first saw the vents, were you blinded by their majesty? Paralyzed? Dumbstruck?



Great picture.

Like a glove lol. I ended up moving it on top

There are no vents on the sides. So long as the top(fan)/bottom(stand)/back are clear, it'll have plenty of ventilation.
I have to put my ear right up to the vent to hear this thing after playing for hours. Quietest console I've owned. I got to try the quick resume. So awesome!
This is good to hear, My launch Xbone is audible from across the room just at idle.

GameStop point of sale went down and I ended waiting hours. However, I have the package...

Waiting on XSX from FedEx that’s currently out for delivery.
MS is going to feast on the "double dip" factor. At $299, there's no reason for the wife and kid to be tying up my Xbox playing The Sims and Minecraft.
