We've seen an awful lot of interest and general curiosity in the new xScreen device for the Xbox Series S here at Pure Xbox, and that seems to be translating to the wider Xbox community as well, with positive impressions so far.
The device, which allows you to turn your Xbox Series S into a portable-style console (albeit still requiring a power outlet) has a perfect 5/5 rating on the official UpSpec Gaming website at the time of writing, and lots of consumers have been taking to social media to share their praise for it, including former Gears of War chief Rod Fergusson:
You might recall that we reviewed the xScreen ourselves here at Pure Xbox last week, calling it a "brilliant plug-and-play companion," and stating that it "works so well with the Series S that it feels like an officially licensed product."
The folks at The Verge have been talking about it today too, giving it a slightly less impressive 6/10, but concluding that while it comes with a "high $249.99 price tag," it's also "an old-school idea, in a modern and well-executed package."
There are downsides to it, then, but the xScreen appears to be off to a good start. We'll have to wait and see whether the curiosity translates into actual sales, but it's nice to see that this thing actually lived up to the hype after all.
