Quote from: Playstation Tablet on February 11, 2024, 07:30:52 PMThe leak suggested the next XBox CPU is switching to arm so a handheld is 100 percent on the table. But I'm not sure how it's supposed to compete with steamdeck 2 or Switch 2. It's fairly doa.
Quote from: Remij on February 11, 2024, 07:40:41 PMWell, I could understand people with big digital libraries on Xbox liking an Xbox handheld which plays their games they've bought. Essentially the same thing as Deck 2 or Switch 2 fanbases.It would be wild to see all the major players pivot to handhelds after the success of the Switch, with only Sony releasing a traditional console. That would be crazy.

I would have fired those guys too.
Quote from: Remij on February 11, 2024, 10:39:52 PMThe Xbox Series X IS ~30% more powerful than the PS5 in compute scenarios. Newer games which make use of mesh shading and other compute based rendering pipelines have been performing demonstrably better than on the PS5.It's really a case of developers targeting PS5, and it having better development tools compared to Xbox consoles. So most of the 3rd party games out there aren't in any rush to incorporate the latest DirectX feature sets. And regarding MS' own studios, they've been dropping the ball all over the place and have so many management issues that they're not taking advantage of the hardware either. We've yet to see what studios like The Coalition can do with Series X with a new game designed specifically around the hardware.There's nothing wrong with the hardware, the potential is all there. The design is nice but it is overly complicated compared to PS5 with its main and daughter boards.. and because Xbox sells the worst, they get the worst deals by manufacturers, so they end up paying more to produce it. But the design is good. I think they made a smart decision to just go with a 2.5GB/s SSD.. since even the biggest Sony games aren't pushing anything more than that and run perfectly fine on lower end PC hardware.The biggest issue affecting Xbox, is that it's just not a priority for developers to optimize for as much as the PS5 is.. and their own development studios haven't yet produced anything which is convincing anyone of a meaningful improvement over the PS5.
