That thing about finding people from your Steam friends list on Xbox would have melted minds not that long ago. 

Didn't the PC Xbox app already have this for ages?

 

Also: if there is a big announcement my money is on SteamVR for Xbox or IP licensing e.g. Microsoft getting their hands on Half-Life 3 or Left For Dead 3 and develop it with their own internal studios. Arkane would be a nice one for Half-Life.

I'm a PlayStation gamer first and foremost.

 

I've owned an Xbox One and two Xbox One X during this generation. I realised that I just didn't play the Xbox enough to justify keeping it.

 

If, however, I walk into Smyth's Toys on 10th November and they've, miraculously, got a Series S on the shelf I'm going to find it difficult to keep my credit card in my wallet.

 

Microsoft have done so much right in the build up to this launch it's impossible to ignore how they are changing gaming.

I was thinking last night. What with Wales going into lockdown until the 9th November. Has this date been chosen to avoid problems with people picking up their consoles the day after? ;)

 

Also, how many sphinkters are twitching at the thought of a full lockdown over November meaning that potentially not being able to go and pick the consoles up?

Microsoft seem to be getting it together generally these days. They have some nice consumer hardware out there, Windows 10 is a great, reliable experience (speaking personally anyway), and the new Edge Browser is seeing good pickup (and it's excellent).

 

With the new X Box imminent, it will be interesting to see where they are in 5 years.

That’s fair enough. PlayStation was leagues ahead this gen and they got all their studios firing on all cylinders, producing some incredible games. I hope that after all the studios MS have bought recently, we see a similar gen from them. It’s really the only thing missing now and I can’t imagine they’d have spent all the money they have and put all the effort into the hardware if they weren’t serious about it. Should be a belting generation for everyone.

 

I also reckon you’ll be able to grab an S at launch, but are you sure you don’t want an X instead? :D

@AceGrace I've been thing about this for both console launches.

 

If anywhere is in lockdown when either machine launches and customers have chosen to pick up from physical shops will the retailers change everything to delivery?

Well mine is with GAME high street and interestingly they have just tweeted that in the event of non essential shop closures, everyone will be contacted offering alternative means of collection or delivery so thankfully they seem to be on the ball (plus they will need to sort out taking the rest of our money!).

I see the Xbox iOS app has updated but I can’t seem to find achievements or anyway to upload to YouTube?

Ageed, no friends feed so cant easily see mates videos after a good night multiplayer and cant find achievements.  Will miss that

 

All over remote play though - I've been waiting years for that even tho the use case is diminished now thanks to lockdown!
