It's adorable and demure – a Nintendo tactic that just might work
Cyberpunk 2077 is the new normal.
With Microsoft’s DYI approach to SDKs, the most compelling ‘launch’ titles on Xbox Series X|S are still 12 to 24 months from retail. Until then, its newest consoles are liable to spend most of their time reviving old games. So for the next year or two, your best bet is to grab the inexpensive, adorable and demure Xbox Series S.
Series S offers the best bang for the buck when it comes to Full HD gaming. Series X is vastly overpowered (and increasingly inefficient) with anything less than UHD. Right now, there is little point in buying all that potential until there is a kinetic use for it.
How well Series S handles legit, new gen, UHD blockbusters will be the tale of the tape. But I suspect the difference between it and Series X will be comparative, with most players being unlikely to spot a huge difference until both consoles are side-by-side with the same game at the same point.
