The Daily Moot: Xbox Series X

1. Xbox Series X

The complete specs of the Xbox Series X have finally been revealed! It’s been a long waiting game between the upcoming Xbox and the PS5 with each console slowly releasing information in hopes of being able to one-up the other. Xbox has finally taken the leap and the specs are certainly impressive. Featuring 8x Zen 2 Core CPUs at 3.8GHz and a 12 Teraflop custom GPU, the Xbox Series X should be able to handle the most graphically intensive games and provide ray tracing with ease.   While the system’s power is undeniable, there is one concern: its only storage is a 1TB SSD. Having an SSD is great of course, but with modern games easily running up to 100GB you’ll likely fill up your storage very quickly. Fortunately the Xbox Series X provides a port for external storage, but unfortunately the port will only accept a proprietary drive that’s currently in production by Microsoft and Seagate and it’s unknown how much the drive will cost. So, while the Xbox Series X should be able to run any game flawlessly, you’ll likely have to pick and choose your gaming library wisely in order to avoid having to uninstall and reinstall your games.

  2. Nintendo Indie World Showcase   Nintendo has just announced an Indie World Showcase livestream set for tomorrow at 10am Pacific Time. The livestream will feature approximately 20 minutes of info about upcoming indie games that are headed to the Nintendo Switch. Considering that there aren’t many major releases scheduled after next week’s Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the Indie World Showcase should be a great opportunity for Switch fans to find some new great games to look forward to.

  3. Steam User Record   Amid the widespread self-quarantine, many people have turned to one of the best indoor comforts on the planet: gaming. This has been a huge boom for Steam, which just broke its own record for concurrent users. As counted by SteamDB, there were over 20 million unique concurrent users on Steam yesterday, with over 6 million of those in-game. CS:GO is currently the biggest beneficiary, topping the Steam charts with over 1 million concurrent players this weekend.

  4. Halo 2 for PC   After the surprise launch of Halo: Combat Evolved a couple weeks ago, 343 Industries is ready to bring more Halo games to PC. Both Halo 2 and Halo 2: Anniversary are set to begin testing this month, with Halo: Reach Forge and Theater soon to follow. The studio described the testing as a way to “get early access builds out to our Halo Insiders before they reach the public.” Depending on how smoothly the early testing goes, 343 Industries expects a public test flight to be ready by the end of March.

  5. Warzone Hits 15 Million Players   In less than 1 week after launch, Warzone has already hit over 15 million players. As Call of Duty’s latest take on the battle royale genre, Warzone has seen a warm reception from the gaming community. Despite some issues with bugs and lag, players from PC, PS4, and Xbox One have all flocked to duke it out in the 150-person battle to the death. Warzone’s impressive player count is no doubt bolstered by its free-to-play status, but it clearly offers a unique and refreshing take on the battle royale genre. If you’re still on the fence about downloading Warzone, check out Ryan’s in-depth review of the game below.

  • Papiulevic LV.24 Clearly Hacking Mar 17, 2020, 05:19 AM

    yup :l

  • Funky Bunch LV.23 Poppin’ Bottles! Mar 17, 2020, 05:20 AM

    Basically a gaming PC with less storage but it will probably be wayyy cheaper than a comparable PC.

  • Cow Boy Billy LV.25 Billy Mar 17, 2020, 05:20 AM

    you probably say that because you only buy prebuilt

  • Funky Bunch LV.23 Poppin’ Bottles! Mar 17, 2020, 05:21 AM

    The GPU is stronger than a 2080 which costs more alone than the entire Xbox probably will.

  • Xethriel LV.19 Assassin Mar 17, 2020, 05:33 AM

    RIP just recently bought a 2080 super... which was a lil more than the expected 500$ price tag for the xbox q.q lol

  • DaPi verified LV.28 Champion Mar 17, 2020, 06:00 AM

    Not at all. Consoles are actually more expensive than PCs. TV’s cost more than PCs.

  • Bad Katrina LV.17 Team Rocket Mar 17, 2020, 06:47 AM

    how big of a tv are you buying?

  • DaPi verified LV.28 Champion Mar 17, 2020, 07:05 AM

    A tv that supports all the power of the console ;). Now how much is a 4K tv. Oh what about a tv with a high frame rate

  • Moe Kai LV.16 Bamboozled Mar 17, 2020, 07:08 AM

    I actually just bought one of those gaming monitors the other day, the damn thing was a whopping 700 dollars, and it was ON SALE. That's crazy, man. I got my drawing tablet for less than half of that thing.

  • DaPi verified LV.28 Champion Mar 17, 2020, 07:09 AM

    Moe Kai  why would you buy that... you can get a 144hz 1080p 24” monitor for $145

  • Moe Kai LV.16 Bamboozled Mar 17, 2020, 07:12 AM

    DaPi  To be fair my dad was the one that bought it, I should have made that more clear. xD

  • DaPi verified LV.28 Champion Mar 17, 2020, 07:13 AM

    Moe Kai  Guessing your dad doesn’t know much about PCs

  • Bad Katrina LV.17 Team Rocket Mar 17, 2020, 07:13 AM

    DaPi  Maybe it's a fancy monitor? Idk I imagine if it was $700 and on sale there was something insane about it that makes up for the price.

  • DaPi verified LV.28 Champion Mar 17, 2020, 07:14 AM

    Bad Katrina  4K monitors are like $400 not $700

  • Moe Kai LV.16 Bamboozled Mar 17, 2020, 08:38 AM

    DaPi  Yeah, he doesn't. It was for my birthday though so regardless it was appreciated.

  • Moe Kai LV.16 Bamboozled Mar 17, 2020, 08:38 AM

    Bad Katrina  Yeah it's actually really good.

  • LwZ_FaTaL LV.5 Fast as Lightning Mar 17, 2020, 08:48 PM

    Bad Katrina  We meet again😄

  • Funky Bunch LV.23 Poppin’ Bottles! Mar 17, 2020, 08:24 AM

    Build me a PC for $500 that has specs equal to the Xbox. Like I said the GPU is better than a 2080 and just a 2080 alone is more than $500.

    We've had this conversation before.

  • DaPi verified LV.28 Champion Mar 17, 2020, 08:26 AM

    Yes but the series x isn’t out yet. Nvidia still has the time to release the 3000 series. Once that happens, the price for the 2000 cards will go down

  • Funky Bunch LV.23 Poppin’ Bottles! Mar 17, 2020, 08:29 AM

    But again that's just the GPU. Doesn't account for the CPUs, the SSD, etc.

    Both Microsoft and Sony sell their consoles at a loss. They lose A LOT of money on them. And they definitely have connections to get better prices on hardware than you or I do.

  • DaPi verified LV.28 Champion Mar 17, 2020, 08:31 AM

    Funky Bunch  1TB ssd...

    2tb hdd and a 128bg ssd hybrid is cheaper 🤷‍♂️

  • GameEAB1 LV.6 Default Savior Mar 17, 2020, 02:25 PM

    My $700 pc that I got for Christmas only has 400gb of storage

  • Funky Bunch LV.23 Poppin’ Bottles! Mar 18, 2020, 05:13 AM

    Assuming that's a desktop you can upgrade it really easily though and HDDs are very inexpensive. You could get a 1TB HDD for like $25.

  • VampiePlayz LV.10 Assassin Mar 17, 2020, 06:11 AM

    For half the cost tho

  • Skullkidfan verified LV.31 Bloodhound Main Mar 17, 2020, 09:34 AM

    are you sure about that

  • Gamewolf LV.11 I'm a Bot Mar 18, 2020, 04:50 AM

    no. It's worse. You can't use it like a PC and you'll eventually have to get another one that costs more.

  • Alextronic LV.10 Dragon Mar 17, 2020, 05:09 AM

    Warzone 🙌

  • Papiulevic LV.24 Clearly Hacking Mar 17, 2020, 05:20 AM

  • Wheelnon LV.19 Shotcaller Mar 17, 2020, 05:21 AM

    we all know xbox and sony in some time will cross over and be more like a pc then before and e every new console is one step closer. my thoughts right ?

  • Cactus Is Best LV.24 Xbox Mar 17, 2020, 05:21 AM

    when is the cactus badge coming

  • LeslieTheMooter verified LV.23 Try Hard Mar 17, 2020, 05:47 AM

    waiting for PS5

  • DaPi verified LV.28 Champion Mar 17, 2020, 05:59 AM

    Series X will not be able to ray trace with ease at all. NO GPU on the market can get 75 fps ray tracing on most graphically heavy games. The 2080Ti can’t get 15 fps on ray traced SOTTR

  • Green verified LV.29 Xbox Mar 17, 2020, 06:49 AM

    Have you seen Austin Evans video on the console? He shows off minecraft with ray tracing on, and it looks incredible (yes, ik it’s just minecraft) https://youtu.be/7Fjn4GRw8qE
