There is no secret when a product is extremely popular and supply struggles to keep up with demand: you must not give up and be ready to draw the credit card at any time. It’s a marathon, only the most enduring people will eventually reach the finish.
Restocking is rare but we see it almost every month. With a little determination, reluctance, and luck (we have to admit it), it’ll be okay eventually. This month, you will finally be able to try your luck again! Be careful, stocks never last more than a few minutes.
To prepare for the next gen, it is always possible to purchase the official storage space extension, which is very easy to plug in behind the console. This is a 1TB SSD produced by SanDisk in close collaboration with Microsoft.
Let’s take a quick look at what the Xbox Series X is. The Velocity architecture connects RAM, SSD, and processor for unparalleled compute speed on a home console. 12 teraflops on the clock, an 8-core processor clocked at 3.8 GHz, 16 GB of GDDR6 … Microsoft’s latest console is a war machine.
A custom SSD is integrated into this swift configuration for 1TB internal storage. With 1TB, you have room to stall a lot of titles, even greedy next gen games. With an SSD, loading times are almost reduced to zero. It’s a bit magical.
The console displays games in 4K with no problem and can even go up to 8K for compatible movies and games. But that’s not all ! For the few games for which this will be possible, the Xbox Series X also has enough in its belly to send 120 frames per second, even in 4K. Obviously, this Xbox Series X is looking to the future.
In addition to its own internal resources, Xbox is in a strategy of external growth which consists in taking over numerous studios in order to integrate them into the Gamepass service.
If you are a PC gamer, you are bound to know GamePass, a sort of Netflix for video games, which allows you to download tons of games, including the very latest titles from Micosoft, for a monthly subscription. The Xbox Series X is a powerful machine, certainly, but also designed for GamePass: its interface is specifically designed to integrate service at the heart of the user experience.
