The first reviews of Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X appeared online

Reviews have begun to appear online on the next-gen Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X consoles, which will start selling on November 10th.

Xbox Series X is called a great set-top box. She has a stylish design, she works almost silently and very quickly.

But, alas, there are no full-fledged next-gen games to appreciate the full power of the device. At the moment, the best looking action-adventure game Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. But this game will also appear on PS4 and Xbox One. This is not a new generation project.

Jason Schreier of Bloomberg writes:

“Playing Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on Xbox Series X – it feels like I’m playing on PC. Looking for a stable 60 fps, but no money for an expensive computer? Then take the Xbox Series X. “

Tom Phillips, editor of Eurogamer, adds that the loading speed in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is phenomenal – the giant world loads in literally 5 seconds.

The journalists also praised the Quick Resume function – it is the ability to pause several games at once, freeze them in the system memory, and switch between them instantly.

Many reviewers call the Xbox Series X a boring console. According to them, it feels like only the third generation of the Xbox One (the second is the Xbox One X). The arguments are the same interface, the same gamepad and the same games.

What about Xbox Series S? It is very compact, even smaller than previous generation consoles. It has all the same features as the Xbox Series X. However, the reduced power makes itself felt. So, according to Mr. Schreier, Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla on Xbox Series S runs at 30 fps (on Xbox Series X – 60 fps) – just like on Xbox One and PS4.

Another disadvantage of the inexpensive version of the new generation Xbox is the small amount of storage, only 364 GB is available for games.

Finally, at launch, most games run on the Xbox Series S at 1080p, not 1440p as previously stated.

Curiously, some games on the Xbox Series S weigh less than the Xbox Series X (and even less than the Xbox One). For instance:

  • Gears 5 – 76.4GB on Xbox One
  • Gears 5 – 71.9GB on Xbox Series X
  • Gears 5 – 55.12GB on Xbox Series S.

We also recommend that you check out the full official Xbox Series S / X video review from Microsoft itself.
