In line with previous developers' comments, Super Meat Boy co-creator Tommy Refenes has said he believes Xbox Series S will hold up this generation with graphically intense and demanding games.
There’s been many theories that the Xbox Series S will reach a point where it holds next-gen games back, particularly those that are specifically designed for the Xbox Series X. Refernes doesn’t believe that to be the case, and in interview with GamingBolt, spoke about how the console should hold up for the ninth console generation:
“I mean you may have a few less effects, some crustier looking shadows and puddles and stuff but overall having a game run at 1440p at 60FPS is pretty great. It might make a difference in 5-8 years but I imagine by then even the Series X and PS5 will be nearing the end of their life cycle if they haven’t already been upstaged by their respective bigger, better versions.”
Others, such as Gavin Stevens of Team Blur games have also mirrored these comments, as well as The Falconeer developer Tomas Sala, who was surprised at just “how powerful the Series S is”.
