In the same Kotaku interview Head of Xbox Phil Spencer predicted the Xbox Series S to eventually outsell the Xbox Series X based on pricing alone, he was also asked to compare the two systems.
While the Xbox Series X is still out in front, Spencer revealed he was genuinely "surprised" by the Xbox Series S - praising its framerates and load times.
"Being honest, the Series S has surprised me in terms of how it performs”
Phil highlighted how some games actually load faster on his Xbox Series S than they do on the "beast" (aka Xbox Series X) because they're loading lower-resolution graphics.
"One of the big surprises for me is just how powerful the Series S is, it’s such a significant piece of hardware in a small form factor. This is a powerful piece of next gen hardware."
"You’ll have a very similar experience between the Series S and the Series X."
In the case of The Falconeer, the load time is 13 seconds on both systems.
