    I agree. I know it's to keep the cost down but suddenly it feels like it's 2010 again.

    OM!G...those loading times, makes my XBX look like it's running on coal, and FH4 is a loooong loading game even on the XBX, but this £250 console just knocks it out the park, just amazing.

    It is, but the plus side is any Xbox One title can still be stored on an external USB 3.0 or 3.1 hard drive. Which considering right now there are only a couple actual games optimized for the Series S/X like Fortnite and Gears 5, games that were made for the One you can just throw on the external drive.

    It also looks like the external memory card unit is just m.2 NVME pinout. Sooner or later I wouldn't be surprised if we saw an adapter to use for this.

    Edit- Actually reading into this, the card is not NVME. Instead it's still PCIE4, but it uses CFExpress interface. So I'm wondering if there's some hackery that could be done to use this standard with any card?

    As I imagined after reading and watching reviews and gameplays. Xbox one x has superior image quality when game is not series s|x optimized. All series s games are the same as Xbox one s. Only when game is optimized for series x|s upgrades image quality for series s console. So, Xbox Series X is the only upgrade available for Xbox one x, as all games are pre enhanced for one x.

    This box just keep getting better.....£20 to allow you to run retorarch emulator on the console, this is just amazing.

    ^^He states in the video that both the S and X series have developer mode that you can unlock for £20, so i assume he is just showing the S series version because that is all he could get his hands on at this time, but there are other videos already up of people showing you how to install retroarch on both consoles in developer mode. ;)

    Yea sorry was a stupid question on my part lol.
    Is this safe to do? I don't want to break anything.
    Atm I can't afford it after buying series X and 4K monitor with new speakers.

    The Dev mode is a offical feature, so you just pay the £20 to unlock it and away you go, so what basically happens is you switch your console over to a dev mode which means it will no longer run retail software, then you can install retroarch and away you go, and you can switch the console back to normal retail mode when you want, here is a video that shows you how that is quick and easy.


    This all seems somewhat like Sidequest on the Oculus quest 2 where you buy the app from the oculus Q2 store then install sidequest via the developermode so you can do tons more stuff, it is great. ;)

    Ah ok gotcha, what about other stuff? Would a streaming service work like Stadia or GeForce Now?

    I was actually bummed out that cross progression did not work from PC to Xbox with The Division 2.
    That would be amazing if I could use GeForce Now on it through developer mode.

    Almost all games look greater or equal on ps5.

    XSX is downgraded due to the trash 720p/1080p XSS.

    All people should return that piece of **** to boycott this.

    Only XSX should exist. Microsoft could do it like ps5. An all digital one and one with disc drive.

    Developer mode for obvious reason won't allow retail stuff to run while in that mode as that would allow the pirates in the back door along with those who want to use the mode to develop apps and stuff like emulation, but it's a nice little feature for £20, something i will be doing the moment i get one, and it will allow me to at last lay my orignal xbox to rest which has done fantastic service as a retro box.....rest easy old friend. lol

    I don't normally give up so easily, but will hit out with Covid, I'm now 40, have a young child excuses etc...

    Anyone know why game/app updates just stall?
    Also, are MS going to limit it too one YouTube account at a time and even worse, one WiFi connection???
