Microsoft's next-generation console, the Xbox Series X, is one of the most awaited consoles of the year and is all set for a worldwide release on the 10th of November, 2020.
The Series X is priced at $499, while its digital counterpart, the Xbox Series S, will cost $299. With the hype surrounding the official launch day reaching astronomical proportions, several industry experts have already got their hands on the Xbox for an exclusive experience.
These include the likes of eminent journalist Geoff Keighley, who managed to get access to an exclusive state-of-the-art Xbox Series X console and shared his review via a Twitter thread:
The biggest takeaway from Geoff Keighley's review is the Quick Resume option, which allows you to jump into your game from the exact point where you last left off.
Also, the Xbox Series X has also been blessed with a faster loading time and a smoother system performance.
Xbox Series X: The Hands-on verdic
In GameSpot's official video, Michael Higham shared his thoughts on the Xbox Series X in terms of gameplay performance:
Smooth gameplay performances, nothing too drastic from the Xbox One X in terms of performance so far. On the topic of backwards compatibility, you'll be happy to know that first party games will support cross-gen multiplayer.
He also spoke about the impressive loading time, which is faster than previous consoles:
The Xbox series X loads games much much faster than the Xbox One X . The series X cuts down on initial load times by 70-80 percent of the time it takes for the One X and that's significant.
IGN's Ryan McCaffrey also shared his analysis of the Xbox Series X, where he spoke in detail about the new Controller:
The new controller is a slight improvement over the stock Xbox one controller..I like the new D-pad and the grip textures but it still pales in comparison to the elite version 2 controller.
He then proceeds to speak about the all-new Quick Resume feature:
I tried out Quick Resume and Microsoft wasn't kidding around, it works! I like that they even put a little quick resume icon in the upper right corner of the screen to let you know that you won't have to wait for the entire game to load from scratch
