i really wish they still had HDMI in. I really like that feature on the xbox one, and it frees up a spot on my receiver, maybe being a dev kit they’ll add it, but prolly not
Not many people used it
I used it and I think anyone who had a cable box next to their Xbox used it. It free’d up a HDMI port why would you not use it?
I totally agree
Did it have true bypass/passthrough on the XBO? Like can you use your reciever if the XBO is off?
No, the Xbox has to be on.
Nope that’s why it’s gone
Ah, that's really not ideal. You'd want true bypass. It's common in newer HDMI sound systems.
I love it, but it didn't have 4k pass through so I only use it for my switch
yeah that was my only complaint. there’s such a limited amount of 4k content through my tv service so i wasn’t too concerned right now, but next gen it woulda been great to have it with 4k pass through
The added input lag makes it kinda useless to me
Not hating here (I couldn't care less about console designs) but its a carbon copy of my Soundbar subwoofer...
Upload a picture.
Weird request but what the hell https://encrypted-tbn0.gsta... PS': This JBL punches way above its weight. Highly recommend.
Functionality first as far as I'm concerned. This design might allow them to install a bigger heat sink and an axial fan to properly cool the APU without sounding like a starting jet engine. General thoughts on the pics: C8 inlet bodes well for power efficiency. I wouldn't put too much emphasis on missing USB-C slots as this could easily change for the retail version. HDMI-in probably won't get added though unless the interface is already on the motherboard and it's just the socket missing from this prototype.
well, sitdown just got BURRRRRNED!
Sorry nova but your sub is similarly shaped, but not a "carbon copy". CC implies it is like for like and your sub is missing a slot drive and USB on the front. Has different footing and prob lacks all the venting and ports on the back. This boxy design is not new but this one is unique. Its internals and layout are like nothing before it. Even apple (who has pioneered new designs years before) doesnt have anything that looks like this. Their cube is smaller and has a top loading slot drive.
Oh god. Here comes Darth with his defense of the mini fridge.
You read my comment wrong then Rice. I was pointing out that Nova was incorrect in saying it is a carbon copy. you must have reading comprehensions issues if you think that is somehow "defending" seeing as his comment wasnt "attacking".
That actually looks really nice. Much nicer looking then in the promotional images. Very sleek looking.
Looks like the power brick ate the console. Consumer: put the power brick inside the console please! MS: hold my beer
@s2 dats too funny
The brick has been inside since the S. You were expecting it to be external again?
"sleek"? i thought it looks clumsy and block-like.
I think 4kgk69x was trying to say is, how can you think thats sleek looking? Nothing about this system looks smooth and glossy. Sleek looking would make more sense for the launch PS3. If anything the Series X is very sharp looking.
I like the Xbox one X design better
Looks exactly the same as the promotional images. exactly.
Love the design of the console.
i know you would say that...cous whe know you😉
I am curious to see the inside, sounds like to be very close to NUC Gaming build. However, although some of you seems to make there console the centerpiece of your living room decoration, i cannot help to wonder how this design will pass wife or mom acceptance factor. I don't know if the official dimensions are known, but seems like the langer than usual design will not fit very well in an usual TV stand furniture. In country like Japan were space is really tight, small living room friendly form factor is key.
Speaking of the inside the 2nd picture of the back looks like a handle that you can take it off like a pc. Like its made to easily looks inside and swap hdd and other things maybe.
If they can make room for a tv bigger than 24inches I don’t see why they can’t figure out how to stick the box behind it... what are are talking about here small form factor when there is damn 40 inch to 70 inch tv right at the heart of it.
When space is tight, best solution is to fix your 70inch tv on the wall, so no more space behind. I agree that in markets like US and a majority of EU countries it will not be an issue, but people density in Asia is a real constraint.
Since when do consoles need to design around Asia's living room constraints? Xbox doesn't exist there and even the PS4 didn't sell amazing there.
Agreed if you don't target Asia market, but I am pretty sure that Sony and Nintendo take this into account in their product definition. Plus, I also think that this is critical for pure supply chain matters: the bigger your product, the more you will need stocking space,shell space, or boats containers to move your product around the world, which is never free. It may add some additional pressure on SX price point that could explain the price gap with PS5 if confirmed.
Have to design consoles to keep Coronaviruses in mind, they are like Metroids
It's only 1" taller than a vertical PS4. It's really not that big. My PS4 has been vertical for years and it fits just fine wherever I put it. If you've got a TV stand with the small shelf-like compartments you should never put a console in there to begin with. There's nowhere for the heat to escape. I would put the consoles on top.
From various mockups, it is close to the same dimensions as two xbo s units stacked together.
I don't know why people were expecting a bunch of ports to look amazing.
Jesus that was fast
So the board is in the middle, interesting.
Wow, that's sick!!!💯🔥
Ok. So it looks like it has 3 usb ports. Cool. I am wondering what the slot next to the hdmi port is. 🧐🧐
It's a debugging port
lol everybody just copying what brad sams said just so they can look like they know what they're talking about
Is that a SD card slot?
Xbox Product Name Placeholder is their best branding yet.
Where are USB-C ports?
Doesn't have them.
Doesn't need them. A is still the standard and supports the same 3.2 spec and speed of 10gbps as C. C is really just a shape change for the most part. Unless they want to go for 20gbps then it would need to be C.
Why bottleneck the console with 10 Gbps when it could be future ready with only some true next gen port? USB 3.2 is 20 Gbps USB 4.0 / Thunderbolt will go to 40 Gbps https://www.tomshardware.co...
Is that a slot for an SD card?
to big for that. It looks like compact flash though and others have said its a debug port.
Could several things. Some are saying debug port, and Digital Foundry said the console might have a slot for an m.2 ssd
M.2 drives are the size of a stick of chewing gum... this port is way to big for that.
Well someone is about to be in serious trouble
Well...its a box. Im more interested in seeing if the ganes are any good.
Looks like the worlds next most powerful console!
Looks like a beer cooler to me
Nothing wrong with beer!
What's above the HDMI port?
It's smaller than I thought 🤷♀️
Ms released them they weren't getting the attention
Still no displayport, I wonder if the final version will have it hmm
