I thought the actually name was "Xbox Series X" and not just "Xbox X"
It's a horrible name, regardless. Marketing fail. I hope there is a Scarlett edition like the Scorpio edition at launch.

They never said that. erek is totally misquoting the article. Hell, they aren't even saying it's the most powerful console of all time. What, exactly, was said was

TFA said:
Xbox Series X will be our fastest, most powerful console ever
Emphasis added by me.

That Senua trailer looked amazing. I mean, if that is real-time it's sick!!!

Hope it's not like the PS3 E3 BS trailers.

Even if its real time it's still only in-engine and not in-game. I wouldn't expect the final game to look quite that good. Maybe on PC it could get close, but I imagine on the console it will still look amazing but not like THAT.

Looks like a Silverstone FT03 mini.

My desk just tole me that it would be happy to make some room...
Yeah, my exact thoughts when I saw the new design.

I really like it, reading the transcript it can be placed both horizontal and vertical, so imagine it should still fit in traditional spaces. It totally would look at home sitting on my desk. Big fan of MS' Xbox One S and X designs, hoping the new X series is just as quiet.

Still, it's going to come down to the games for me. I can't say the Senua trailer did much for me (never played the original, so not feeling the hype based on that).

Xbox One = Xbone

Xbox Series X = Xbox SeX? SeX Box?
XSX seems the most obvious. Heck, on a keyboard "x" and "s" are directly next to each other, simple for the hunt and peck crowd.

On topic, I hope they designed the thermals to work while this thing is on its side. I guarantee most won't have it vertical, just like most didn't have the PS3 vertical even though it was presented that way.

looks better than the ps5 leaks.
You are confusing the development kit with an actual console. Heck the standard development kit looks like a vcr, they just went special to make note that this was their fifth but otherwise it would be a literal black rectangular box.

I hope it sells in the billions, and that as a side effect more games show up on the PC thru XGP.

I also hope this will be a good thing for AMD.

Hope #3 was that maybe there would have been something mentioned about Ray Tracing and AMD's take on it, but....crickets..

I can probably make this fit in my entertainment setup as long as you can lay it on its side. Still not sure I'll need one, though. As long as MS keeps putting out their exclusives on PC, my Xbox has simply been an Amazon Video and Disney+ machine. If I could play those two services in 4K/Atmos on my PC I'd probably just sell the damn thing.

"In engine," no doubt. Game engines are already starting to look that good. The fact that the next gen consoles are close to PCs in performance this time around means only good things to come in the future. The only thing that can sink it is if we continue this stupid fad of shallow multiplayer money printing machines.

AMD will probably make a lot of revenue off of the PS5 and XSX (like they did for current consoles) but probably not a huge amount of profit (like with current consoles). AMD is in a much better position these days than they were when current consoles were being designed but I still doubt they're making a ton of profit on a per chip basis.

Showcasing Senua was an interesting and encouraging choice. The original is certainly not shallow.

Did not imply that at all. Senua's Sacrifice is one of my favorite games of 2017.

If I care about power then I play on my PC. If I care about playing quality exclusives then I buy a PlayStation. No point in getting an Xbox for me.
Ditto. Nearly anythiung worth playing on an Xbox is also available in Windows.
