To get us ready for the day-one launch, Microsoft has shown us more regarding the Xbox series X and Series S.
Unsurprisingly, the focus here is all about speed — how fast everything loads, how fast you can switch between games, how fast you can add new titles to your library, and more. Watch the video below for more.
I don’t know about you, but the speed is a substantial update on the previous Xbox and it gets me excited! After a quick overview of the home screen, which looks like an easy way to get at games you’ve been playing as well as new options to spend your money on, hosts Malik Prince and Harrison Hoffman jump into Gears 5 for the Xbox One. They call out the graphical improvements for older titles, though that’s something that’s rather tough to convey in a YouTube video.
At the end of the video they shows off Seagate’s Xbox expansion card, a $220 accessory that adds 1TB of extremely fast storage space to your console. In the demo, it only took about two seconds before all the games stored on that expansion card just showed up in the library, ready to play. It’s not cheap, but it’s an impressive bit of technology for sure. There are a few other nice details in this video, though basically everything we’ve heard about already — if you need something to tide you over until November 10th, give this video a quick look.
