Bright Memory: Infinite just launched on Xbox; the follow up to Bright Memory 1.0 which dropped as an Xbox Series X and S launch title. We went hands-on recently and although we were somewhat disappointed in the game's length and mechanical depth, we can't deny its drop-dead gorgeous visuals.
We played through the shooter on Xbox Series X, but it seems like the Series S version is just as impressive. YouTuber The Xbox Tester has given the game a go on Xbox's all-digital console, and they've described the game as "insane" and "mindboggling" on Xbox Series S.
"This is Bright Memory: Infinite on Xbox Series S. This is next-gen, this is awesome."
"Go check out this game. It's mindboggling that they could get this out of a $299 console. Just wow."
It appears to run at around 1440p and 60FPS on Series S, which seems like a nice, balanced setup for that system. The rest of the visual makeup looks broadly similar to the Xbox Series X and PS5 versions of the game.
However, the Series S does miss out on some additional performance modes. Xbox Series X also has a Ray Tracing mode and a 120Hz mode, and during our playtime, we stuck with the RT mode. Even so, this is an impressive effort on Xbox Series S, all things considered. Here's how it stacks up to other versions of the game:
Bright Memory: Infinite is out now on the Xbox Store at a price of £16.74 / $19.99, and you can get 20% off that price if you already own the original Bright Memory 1.0. Keep in mind there's sadly no Xbox One version for this game.

Picking this up when its <$7
Great game that I'll be replaying quite a bit. The gun and sword play is really fun. Visuals are very impressive for a game made by just one person across multiple systems. Can't comment on the Series S version specifically but the Series X version is a looker for sure.
This game would've killed on Game Pass. Was really a miss I think on their part. Simply priced too high for how short it is.
would not call it 'Mindboggling'... maybe will test it out when it gets to gamepass
@Gamer83 the sword kills I’ve been seeing in vids look really satisfying. Gonna cop it this upcoming by week.
Was surprised it wasn’t on Gamepass.
Really should have released Xbox One and PS4 versions.
Game is on Switch as well and looks good on the system, that this looking good on Series S isn't surprising.
The Xbox series S has REALLY blown me away with it's performance. When Far Cry 5 released on gamepass I was amazed how how well it looked running at 1080p with 60 FPS boost enabled but then I recently picked up Far Cry 6 & it's gorgeous on the series S running at 1440p and 60fps on my 43 inch 4K TV. It's tropical island setting is stunning visually with rivers, trees & waterfalls it's just amazing. I genuinely love FC6, it's different from Far Cry 5 but it's a good game. I picked up a digital copy from Newegg for $20 and I'm blown away at the depth of the game. There's actually a ton of stuff to do. The Xbox series S has been such a powerful little beast if a console providing me some of the BEST games I've played in a long time. For a console that's only $299 I actually play it more than my PS5 which I NEVER thought that'd be the case but here I am lol just goes to show quality games outweighs everything else and right now I feel like I have more quality games on my Xbox. That's not to say the PS5 doesn't have quality games but for me personally I've played at beat the main AAA games so as I wait for more games to be released the Xbox series S keeps me entertained. Happy gaming y'all ✌️
Picked this up this weekend. Waiting to start ot on my SX. Pretty hyped for an actual current gen game, not just an optimized game.
@Richnj nah, we need to get some current gen games. No point in buying an S/X if I can play everything on my launch One. Time to level up or accept you won't be able to play EVEEYTHING.
@Leo_ascendent Level up has nothing to do with it. And if you are using this game to justify your new console purchase, I have bad news for you. This game is playable on Switch. So it's hardly a shining example of games that wouldn't be possible on Xbox One.
The point of buying a new console would be to play the better versions and to future proof yourself against new releases.
@Richnj fair point. Still stand by my comment that we need more series exclusives.
