A few snippets:
The Series X is the first major console release that feels like a small step for gaming, rather than a giant leap. Sure, loading times are lightning-quick; framerates are largely superb; dynamic lighting is on a whole new level. But has it delivered anything close to the awesome experience I built up in my head?
Nah. It just feels like a better Xbox One X.
For one, Quick Resume, which allows for the suspension of up to three games, is currently more of a hindrance than a help. When it works, it’s absolutely fantastic, but it regularly doesn’t. The biggest victims are those games that rely on a constant internet connection because Quick Resume almost always disconnects them from servers, never to reconnect.
Then there’s the new Xbox controller, which offers better functionality thanks to its share button, the better (but obnoxiously loud) D-pad, and USB C charging. But its battery cover clips have been unnecessarily adjusted inwards–a design change that renders all previous play-and-charge kits unusable. But hey, you can buy the all-new Xbox Rechargeable Battery for the princely sum of $25. Cheers.
Anyone with a Series X agrees? Or is this guy out of his mind?
