So after rapid f5 on Nov 10th, I scored an xbox series X. Got it on Wednesday and booted it up on my 299 dollar hisense 65" 4k tv...and boy was I disappointed. Very little difference from my xbox 1 x.

So I looked up on youtube, and consensus is I need to spend another 1000-2000 bucks on a new OLED tv or something to get the optimal experience. goddammit

There's an option in the menus to test your TV. Xbox will tell you what features would or wouldn't work with the connected TV. Did you try that?

What games have you tried?

There really are only a handful out right now where most people would notice much of a difference between the One X and the Series X and if you don't have a 120hz TV the list is even shorter. Watch Dogs: Legion uses ray-tracing on the Series X, so it'd probably be my recommendation for a game that looks noticeably better.

The issue isn't hardware, it's the software. There's no true next gen game yet that will make these new consoles shine. Maybe cyberpunk comes close, but ideally you won't see anything still for a few months. Forza in feb would be your next best bet after cyberpunk.

Achievements are for men who dream; men who dare; men who achieve!
