I'm still completely onboard with MS this upcoming generation. The storage solution absolutely sucks balls, however.

Can Ms turn Bethesda around?
Maybe they can give them the QA that the studio has ALWAYS desperately needed?

Maybe they won’t churn out buggy, incompetent, incomplete pieces of shit games they’ve been making since... ooh, I dunno, they first started making games?

I think people’s fear of exclusivity is unfounded, this isn’t Ballmer ERA MS, this is a new MS where they know the more platforms they sell shit on makes them even more money.

Worst case: the games will be exclusive for a few months or simply cost more on competing systems.

Best case: Get it on game pass or cheaper on XBOX and the Xbox version has extra content/patches to make the games enjoyable.

Leaving buggy shit versions to Sony and Nintendo so they can enjoy Bethesda games as they always have
Hank Azaria not playing Apu on the Simpsons will make the role as irrelevant as the Simpsons has been as a series since 1999!

Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S Will Be the Best Place to Play 1000s of Games From Across Four Generations of Xbox
While not applicable for many titles due to the game’s original physics or animations, these new techniques the team has developed can push game engines to render more quickly for a buttery smooth experience beyond what the original game might have delivered due to the capabilities of the hardware. Fallout 4 framerate, shown below, is effectively doubled from 30fps to 60fps on Xbox Series S, delivering a new way to preserve and enjoy this legendary title.

On the Xbox One, we were able to provide a curated list of titles that were enhanced for the Xbox One X via the Heutchy method. This allowed titles from Xbox 360 that rendered at 720p and original Xbox games that ran at 360p to play at 4K on Xbox One X, well beyond the capabilities of their original platform. The Heutchy method continues to be used to bring a variety of titles to 1440p on Xbox Series S and 4K on Xbox Series X.

Improved texture filtering is also coming to backward compatible titles on both Xbox Series X and Series S. On Xbox One X, a portion of the catalog benefited from increased anisotropic filtering, improving image quality of games. On Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, 16x anisotropic filtering has been enabled for nearly all backward compatible titles so you can experience the very best visuals the games have to offer.
