Might as well get it started. Who's looking forward to it? I personally think that it could beat PS5, that is if they don't screw up. They need a basic UI, more first party titles, and focus only on gaming. They own the license to Rare games, we need to see new Conkers, Perfect Dark, Banjo Kazooie, etc. They did alright with Killer Instinct, I'll give them that, but they're sitting on a lot of games that needs remade, remastered, and sequels.
As far as I know, it's slightly more powerful than the PS5, which isn't a big deal. But what is a big deal is that it will come with more storage. XBSX will have 1TB, which I admit, is not much by today's standards. The PS5 will have 825GB, which is ridiculous. I'm guessing that the next gen games will be around 100gb or more in size on average. If that is the case, I expect the discs will be on 4k UHD blu-rays.

Stoked about Morrowind and Oblivion coming back. I didn't get around to playing them last time. I downloaded Morrowind last night, and man does that game look rough. But I'm going to play through it anyways. Might take me 2 years, but I'll do it damn it.

Morrowind aged like milk indeed haha. I tried it too and it's like playing an old school D&D game. No wonder why I never finished it back when I had it on the OG Xbox. One day though...one day!

Got a series S for the bedroom media device to replace a broke down PS4. It's pretty fast. Like it so far.

Just saw a rumor that Godfall is rumored to be coming to the Series consoles in May/June. Might be part of GP as well.
I think I'd play it as part of the GP service, don't think I'd purchase it based on the reviews and such that I've read about it. Not to surprised that it's coming to Xbox, I suspect Deathloop will also eventually arrive there as well. But with Godfall not doing great on the PS5 and not being a Sony developed/produced title I don't think too many could be surprised at the rumor.

Deathloop is only a timed exclusive, so it is coming to xbox. And will most likely be a day one on GP for xbox as well. Which honestly has me considering skipping it on PS5.

God fall was always a timed exclusive also.

I am not sure about skipping And waiting for DL to hit Gamepass. The game makes clever use of the dual sense Wich IMO will be the better way to play if you have the option for both.

God Fall is good, and while it's cool playing with the dual sense it's one I would wait on again if you have both consoles. I just got it because I wanted to play something that could not be played on a PS4.

Quick question about the Xbox One S, I am does it play audio through the controller? If I was watching Netflix could I send audio through the controller and plug my headphones in that way like on PS4? I like watching tv at night but I do t want to make to much noise.... It seems to be easier to find a Xbox one than a PS4 right now.

@Finn yes, the Xbox One S/X and Series S/X controllers have mini jacks that allow you to hook up headphones to them for audio.

So they added the FPS boost thing to a few of the Bethesda games that were added to GP today. I was playing Skyrim last night for a few and it was locked at 30. I just booted it up and its running at 60+. It looks like the PC version on the XS now.

They also added it to Fallout 4, Prey and Dishonored. And they are planning on adding it to more.

@Archer Is that FPS boost only on the Series X/S?

Skyrim is a sink hole. Beat it twice in my life across 2 generations. Got all the achievements on the 360 version. Once you start it's really hard to stop, if you're into endless quests for various factions and just getting lost in the wanderlust landscape the land of Tamriel has to offer in the snowy peaks of the home of the Nord with a stunningly orchestrated soundtrack. Oblivion is like that too, but Skyrim is the complete package for me. The Dark Brotherhood for Life! Sanguine!

as a first time player playing a female nord. Who should I side with? I can see the reasons to side with "my people" but also side with the empire her bring a rational thinker and smart person. I literally can't progress any more because I keep running into those skirmishes and I need to decide!

While playing as a Nord I always sided with my people and dealt with the consequences as they appeared. May be a bit tougher in Imperial populated areas but you'll always have your brethren on your side plus you'll get a more authentic Skyrim experience how I think it was meant to be by siding with the Stormcloaks. If it was Oblivion and took place in Cyrodil I'd say go side with Imperials as the core of Oblivion resided in the nation's capital which is inhabited mainly by the Empire.

I thought you could complete all the quest lines on one play through. I got the plat on it and pretty sure it required completing all of the chains?

You can. This choice has trophies/achievements that are either or to unlock. So your choice doesn't matter in that regard.
