I'm just gonna re-post this here:
With the Series X coming in a few weeks, I'm still quite hesitant to buy a new console to replace my 4 year old Xbox One. For one thing, I don't see a lot of benefit in doing so, except for some very slightly beefed up graphics and better screen resolution. On the other hand, I don't see Microsoft ending support any time soon (Someone correct me if I'm wrong), with the majority of games that are set to be coming out for the Series X also being compatible with it's older brother. Are you also going to keep using your Xbox One due to these reasons?

Let's be honest, Microsoft back-pedalled regarding Xbox One support. Xbox One X and Xbox One S have almost disappeared from the official website in order to avoid confusion and every AAA first-party game is ditching the Xbox One version except Halo Infinite. Which is funny because Sony fanboys said that Xbox One will hold Series X back and now they're getting cross-gen first-party games: Spider Man Miles Morales, Horizon 2, Sackboy...

I mean, the current plan is for my Xbox One to go into storage. But who knows? I play peripheral based games like Rock Band and even Disney Infinity sometimes, so if those don't work on Series X then it'll still get some use.

As always, my newest console will be set up in the main lounge where I game the most and the replaced console will be moved to the bedroom. In this case, my Project Scorpio will replace my Gears 4 XB1s so essentially, I will still have that set up

As always, game releases will gradually become fewer and fewer on the 'older' hardware and I see no reason that will not continue to happen in future generations. There is always a crossover phase - with games releasing on both generations until such a time as it becomes unviable - either financially to spend the time scaling them down for the 'few' that are still purchasing new games on older hardware or because the hardware itself won't run them to an adequate standard to sell. Black Ops 3 seemed inadequate to sell - but a version still released on last gen - albeit without a Campaign.

There is a difference between 'supporting' a console and actually making/releasing games for it. Supporting it could just be keeping all the 'functionality' of it (ie Online access) still operational and any necessary updates to the OS are still offered so its still 'supported' by MS even if its no longer receiving any new game releases. No doubt we will see the Xbox One supported for quite a while.

In the first year, I wouldn't be surprised if a LOT of games are multi-generational releases - after all games like Titanfall, Rise of the Tomb Raider and numerous sport titles (Madden, Fifa, Pro Evo, NBA etc) were released as late as 2017 and Just Dance 2019 released in late 2018 for XB360.

We already know that some games will not be releasing on Xbox One - Games like the Medium, Scorn, STALKER 2, Warhammer: Darktide and games like Fable, Forza Motorsport etc too were not announced for Xbox One. That's assuming others don't get their 'Xbox One' version cancelled as they get closer to preparing for release. Its not just 'exclusives' to the console either as Suicide Squad, the Elder Scrolls VI and Starfield were all announced as 'next gen' games when announced so like any generation, we will see more and more games releasing only for next gen and fewer and fewer releases coming to last gen - regardless of how long MS continue to 'support' it.

A pessimist is just an optimist with experience!

Why can't life be like gaming? Why can't I restart from an earlier checkpoint??

Feel free to add me but please send a message so I know where you know me from...

@BlueOcean I'm still baffled by the about face both companies did vs. what their messaging was.

All that talk about "believing in generations," but I'll hardly miss a damn thing by sticking with my PS4 in 2020.

@Ralizah Yes it's like Sony used a motto to make the PS5 seem more next-gen than Series X while Microsoft has realised that their own studios don't want to support an ancient CPU more than necessary.

The are tens of millions of people with Xbox One is he will continue to buy games. Whilst enough of them around for It to be profitable to release new games the system will keep rolling on. When sales drop lower certain point suport will stop.

@BlueOcean @Ralizah History suggests that once the initial demand for PlayStation 5 has been meet. The next thing Sony will do will be a cost down on the PlayStation 4. Microsoft’s cheap model will be the Series S. I doubt they will shrink and rerelease the 1S.

@Ryall I agree, that's how Sony managed to "outsell" Xbox 360, with post-gen cheap hardware revisions when 360 was already discontinued. Sony will release a PS4 like that cheap PS3 squares that I have seen in supermarkets.

Microsoft has Series S, that's how they're going to deal with budget-conscious consumers.

@YaseenSaeed Being able to play my tunes from the 90s off CD it’s certainly what I buy next generation consoles for.

@YaseenSaeed There's Series X then which even plays audio CDs (PS4 and PS5 don't).

BlueOcean

YaseenSaeed

@BlueOcean Yes, I'm aware of that, I was referring to the Series S, not X.

Nope! I have my X1X sat under my TV and my Day One X1 in the spare room. No intention of upgrading at the moment. I've heard all the "zero load time" and "play games while they install" spiel last time around and it doesn't work! I'm quite happy playing games in 1080p and 4k, and have no intention of spending £450 on a 'faster' console. I got out of PC gaming cos every new game needed an upgrade to the hardware. If consoles go down this route then I'm done gaming.

You don't stop gaming because you get old, you get old because you stop gaming.

For me I am sticking hard to my One S until I save up money for SX. After that probably will trade it in for whatever it is worth or just pass it to a friend or someone who could use it for fun.

Honestly I don't have a "it is dead to me" vibe. Ultimately they are tools to play games on and when a newer more shiny one releases the older one just goes away gradually. In the previous generations you would keep the old one around just to play some of those games here and there but now thanks to wide-ranging backwards compatibility (on both consoles) the old ones will be gone soon.

@BrilliantBill I agree, it's not that "Xbox One" is dead but it becomes part of Series X/S. I have played a lot of 360 games on Xbox One and I've never had a 360 console so it wasn't nostalgia. The best thing about Xbox is, in my opinion, the enhanced and free backwards compatibility.

I still have no idea what to do with my One X. Debating whether to keep it as an extra console and media player in another room for the times that my bedroom tv is being hogged or if I should get some sort of cash value for it to use towards my Series X. Then maybe later down the road I can purchase a Series S as an extra console.

I fixed my Xbox One and still have a 360 that used to get some love at work for Persona 4 Arena and Halo 3 (both are back compat). I got a decent PC and will likely stick by that, I'll just buy MS games on Steam.

My One X will be going in to my back room for my son, to replace the day one One that I gave him when I upgraded to the Project Scorpio X and the Series X will be in my main room with my 65" 4K TV.

I'll sell my One X once I get my Series X. Technology evolves so fast it's amazing. It was only 3 years ago when One X came out. 😮

I'm thinking...
