Oh man the storage space sucks on this big time

Xbox Series S has 364GB of the 512GB SSD available for games/apps according to an early owner of the console (quite a few are getting them early).

So basically, install Gears 5 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and you're done.

External storage is definitely going to be mandatory this generation, unless you have really fast internet.

Gamestop unbundled the Series S and is now selling it by itself. I wonder if no one was biting on their insane bundles.

Are there any comparisons for this and the X? I'd love to see how Valhalla runs on this compared to the X.

I believe somebody posted some videos comparing xbox one and series s/x gameplay of AC: Valhalla over at that thread.

Digital Foundry posted a patch analysis video on AC Valhalla Patch 1.04. Now the Series S runs AC Valhalla at 60 fps with a dynamic res of 720p-1080p.

According to Digital Foundry the Series S version of Borderlands 3 runs from 1080p-1440p and maintains a rock solid 60fps.

I have had my Series S (my first console ever) for several weeks now and I couldn't be more pleased.

I am a novice gamer so I'm playing games like Disneyland Adventures and Lego games to start, and I love the way they look and play.

I have used up 88% of the available space, but I think that's because I downloaded a bunch of stuff just so I wouldn't forget - I'm really only playing 3-4 games, DLA being the main one.

I will definitely delete the Game Pass games I'm finished with, but have bought several games so I may have to get external storage at some point.

Anyway, I'm really enjoying the Series S - it's doing everything I want and then some (I've never had a dedicated app box ie/ to watch Disney+, and this has made my life so much easier!)

I would get an S right now, but I'm worried about how it would play new Next Gen only versions of games.

Anyone have an S that can comment on how well it works with streaming apps, most notably Dolby Vision content? "Unfortunately I'm not satisfied with the processor in my TV as far as streaming apps go and had an Nvidia Shield for a bit before returning it; it worked well, but debating on spending an additional $150 to get a Series S and have an extra gaming system out of it as well.

Been playing a lot of Outriders, Borderlands 3 and Madden on my Series S. Couldn't be more happy with the performance I'm getting on this cheap console. Don't regret my purchase at all!

The S is available at Gamestop and it's not bundled either.
