Xbox S review?

Xbox S review?

ZweihanderBKG

if you are ok with 1080p gaming go ahead with Xbox Series S. Also keep in mind that 500Gb space is not enough , you will have to get external HDD to store games. Gamepass will keep you busy enough and not every game you like would be available on it. Currently 415 games are available for game pass currently, You can check [Microsoft store](https://www.xbox.com/en-IN/xbox-game-pass/games) on the games that are available on gamepass and decide, I personally feel Xbox is a better value proposition this generation compared to Ps5. I have owned ps3/ps4 in past but would get Xbox series X this gen.

Do I need to get the spec specific external SSD or do normal SSds would do as that was very costly


ZweihanderBKG

Normal HDD would be ok and it should be able to run old gen games from it. For next gen games though you will have to run it from internal SSD. You can copy games between internal SSD and external HDD. [Digital Foundry](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7y-Fy1Q2O2k&t=830s) have video about it.

That sounds awesome!

When does the Series X come back in stock? And from which digital store should I buy it from? coz it is out of stock within minutes on Flipkart and Amazon.


ZweihanderBKG

No Idea TBH, I already have a PS4 so I can wait a while. Series X is out of stock everywhere for now. I would suggest to to set option for notify on email on online stores. You can also check Reliance Digital ad Vijay Sales . Flipkart shows status as coming soon, so there may be some hope.

Go for the console you have more friends playing on. Secondly, go for the one which has a better controller feel for you.

PS5 is anyhow nowhere to be found, and I am not majorly concerned on the games, I have series s in mind. If only the games I play would be affordable.

I know a store selling the disc version in delhi for 55k. I bought it last month and I can ask them if they still have it


norseCosmo

That sounds good but I am not in Delhi now


LateSession7340

Could text that store and ask if they could ship it. Or some family member and can do the same. I called the lady and she got it delivered to my house COD in 30 mins

Xbox (or PS) for not great for serious FPS gaming. Can play Fortnite, MW casually. For games not in GP, you need to get from MS store and they're pricier than on Steam. No regional pricing although sales are common. Playing in your spare time is what consoles excel at but you need to reevaluate whether you're purely interested in FPS games.


norseCosmo

I used to play side scroll games but I always love FPS mostly WW||. Is it too hard to play? As GTA has similar gun action are they really hard to aim? Or are not made for consoles? No idea on consoles.


UnTerminator

If it will be your first time playing FPS games with a controller, it can get really difficult in the beginning though it depends how quickly you adapt. For example - I have been playing with a controller for a while now and I can play FPS games using it (though it involves fiddling with left/right stick sensitivity in each game).


cepoidal

\+1 to this but again.. temper it with the "play in spare time" idea. I forgot one thing though. Some games do support KB&M officially. It's not a hack or a secret.


UnTerminator

Yes, if the setup allows, one can use M+Kb combo instead of a controller.


norseCosmo

Any way to know if the game supports KB&M.would be easier for me to decide


UnTerminator

I am sorry. I have no idea.

Have a series s for sale if you are interested.

It's pretty good. Considering it has backwards compatibility, you can even play CS:GO.


norseCosmo

That sounds good, if I can play all the games I have missed in a while. Can we play with keyboard and mouse in consoles? Saw one video where they played fortnite using mouse and keyboard and console? As CS Go would require serious aiming?


Remarkable_Pass_7687

Only few games like fortnite and call of duty supports mnk on consoles and some other games which have crossplay. I'd say if ur more into fps gaming then u should consider a gaming pc cuz it's pretty hard to aim On a controller also u need to buy xbox gold if u want to play multiplayer


Adventurous-Ad-2170

I don't think that CS:GO would work with KM because it was originally launched on Xbox 360. But a lot of modern competitive games support KM like Fortnite and Warzone.


norseCosmo

Any way to know this if they support km?


Adventurous-Ad-2170

You can just search "Xbox games which support keyboard and mouse".
