    Curious if anyone on here bought a Series S?

    Cant see myself getting a 4K screen anytime soon so reckon I’d manage with an S. The only thing stopping me is the storage space, reckon that could be a pain in the arse.

    DF have done a few comparisons of series S vs X and the most glaring things are lower resolutions, framerate AND removal of RT. It is most definitely not a forward facing console even though it feels like it will be an ideal machine. I feel like this is a console that is built with xCloud in mind.

    I think the S is less capable than many will think.

    this one shows a lot of this

    And by the time you get the additional storage space you might as well get the X..

    Yeah I mentioned it a while ago in the thread it has been working fine for me. Although I'm looking for a solution for it to work on my new google tv with Chrome cast so I don't have to set up my lappy in my room every time I wanna stream the series x to my 32 inch monitor in my room

    Yep, should have installed the beta firmware first, reset my settings after I just finished doing them lol. At least it was quicker to do second time around.

    Aww, thats adorable - i always wondered where baby controllers came from....


    Anyway, whats a console release without some hideously expensive and pointless advertising to go along with it. Oh and get some name of the moment to make it. So ladies and gentlepersons I present to you the Taika Waititi short filmvertorial "Lucid Odyssey"

    I didn't think it could be THAT bad, but I got 1 minute in before deciding that "deliberately paced high-concept sci-fi ad" is maybe not a genre I need to spend any more of my life watching.
