Linus + James play some backward compatible games on the Xbox One X and the Series X to see how the new console makes the games look better, run smoother, and load faster. Plus the new Quick Resume feature which is surprisingly cool!

  • Hearing Linus say it's better than a PC in ANY way, you know it's an amazing machine!

  • These new console are not next gen by any means

  • The reason i'll wait for xbox series x is because I want a special edition version of the series x. Based on previous consoles those special editions usually come out 6months to a yr or so. Also you get way better value for money if you wait. The price would of dropped or they may release a package with console an few games. I can wait till they make series x games because i havent gotten sick of the previous console yet.

  • play league

  • I don’t understand I thought we’ve heard nothing but it’s the same picture quality right now as the Xbox one X? Especially just a standing image with no movement in the game? They are both running at 4K

  • Ah... Linus being a douche. Wouldn't be an LTT Video without it. You kept saying how "soft and squishy" the One X resolution looked side by side to the Series X. I didn't see a difference whatsoever. But keep convincing yourself the Series X is awesome... Anything to roll in those checks from Microsoft. And your "Ew it's just 4K" about the One X... You're and idiot, they're BOTH 4K.

  • What I can see is the reflection of your stupid blinds on the TV the whole time.

  • actually i am waiting for the ps5 than the xbox

  • To me, there's not a big difference between them, you have to really study the games up close to notice all that much. As a gamer and game developer for the past 30+ years, I remember when one generation to the next was so huge that they didn't even feel like the games were in the same era, anyone else remember those huge jumps? Think for example NES to SNES, PS One to PS2 or Sega Saturn to Dreamcast.

  • Microsoft Series V/R WILL BE AMAZING MARK MY WORDS 2024

  • The Xbox series x is for the people who still have the original Xbox one and people switching from ps4 . Us Xbox one X and S owners will skip the series X and S most likely.. till the series Y and Z of course ( Microsoft VR)

  • I have the Xbox X Scorpio and have had a 4K tv last couple years.. ima just wait for the Series Z next year!!!

  • Who dosent care about xbox

  • When can we plug in external graphics card into Xbox?

  • Now if only I could get one and do you think you could water cool or even sub zero cool the new Xbox?

  • What's the price difference between the two?

  • the deference only speed

  • So it looks like I have no reason to upgrade until they stop making One X games...?

  • What HDMI cord should I get so I can actually get 4k 120 FPS HDR???

  • I have more xbox points/coins then you linus

  • where is micro centre in Canada ?

  • for anyone with a gaming PC is there even a point to owning the Series X...

  • God they have the worst names lol

  • Fusion Frenzy gonna look bad ass! 😙

  • 6:16 I'm Enjoying these subtle flexes!

  • Paying over $500 to play old games with slightly better performance, and looks. Uhhh NO!! Give it a year or so then drop some cash. My One X is just fine, even the Pro has the most beautiful exclusives ever made!! The PS5 will NOT make a huge impact on Uncharted 4, Legacy, God Of War etc. And on my X I only play 3rd party titles anyway. So why would I want another one. I don't get peoples logic. Want 60fps, get a gaming pc for cheap. I have one but rarely use it, simply because i don't care. And DOOM is one of the best optimized last/current gen games ever. Also it looks AWESOME on the One X, get your eyes examined dude. Also if you're waiting for it to load, get up off your ass and go pee. Or make a hoagie. ha!!

  • are y'all seriously filming the screen on a tech channel? My grandma could make a better video lmao

  • not enough imo

  • Pretty sure the hair artifacts on Series X around 7:20 was the TV’s smooth motion feature at work by inserting frames when the game is less than 60FPS. My Sony TV does this when Motion is set to Smooth.

  • I just store the current series enhanced games I'm playing on the internal and the standard games I dont play on the external and swap them when needed as its only less than the time it takes to make a cup of tea lol

  • I have an external Samsung t1 ssd and that cost me about £100 and I transferred destiny 2 at 100gig from that ssd to the internal ssd on the xbox took under 3 minutes so there are always cheaper and more viable options for storage.

  • I only came here to say those fingerprints on the Xbox really disturbed me.

  • Just watching Sony and Xbox market the Next gen is hilarious you can’t even buy one with put paying $1300 or fighting a bunch of wackos in store for 2 consoles 😂 chillen till 2021

  • Ps5 is gonna have more games I’ll keep my old Xbox for old games ha

  • I love how everyone is comparing series x and one x when I still am using my original Xbox one

    • IKR I'm playing Valhalla on my 6yr old x1 and I dont even think the loading times are that bad (Game is installed to an external HD as well.)

  • nowhere near as cool as

  • I have the first generation Xbox one, and after I turn it on after hours without playing it will quick resume the game I was playing, but it depends if the game lets a quick resume

  • When I got the One X, I replayed Dead Space 1&2 and wow I could see the dust particles. Even HRwiki looks better on the One X.

    • Love DS1 and 2, you fo' real with the extra shit can see on the One X? (You mention dust) Cos I dont believe the One X would improve on what the original Xbox One would do as its a 360 game and I've replayed on the OG One. It still looks good though.

  • I’m using my Xbox One X on a 144Frame per second gaming monitor and my Xbox One X has a setting that lets me play at 120fps and I don’t like 4K. It looks so damn perfect on my monitor and I think it’s better than the Xbox series X

  • It’s kinda confusing me with the name

  • should i buy a ps5 or a game pc? i realy dont know anymore

  • I loaded up titanfall 2 on my series x and omg. Looked and played absolutely amazing! Huge difference over the one x. Cause I have one of those too 🙂

  • I think Final Fantasy didn't look good because Square Enix has to make an update raising optimization settings for the series X. I'm sure it will look way better after that.

  • Xbox in 2027: introducing the xbox type x and type s

  • Linus: the one x looks so bad Me watching on my og xbox one mmmm yes it does

  • How did you guys make Joaquin Phoenix be in this video?

  • The Xbox series x is just basically a crappy PC a PS5 is like an actual console and has exclusives that are worth playing and can only be found on the PS5

  • linus:wow this looks like dog crap its like not even smooth. is this even 4k? me watching on the same tv from 2012:

  • That jump on the couch seemed a bit uncomfortable lol great video btw!

  • I always turn my xbox off fully. Don’t like to use the instant on as I don’t use the console enough to justify the feature. But when I do use the console Jesus it takes about 3 minutes to boot prob longer 🙄

  • ive got a 5tb external drive on my xbox one s. have around 125 games installed and am sitting around 50%. storage will make or break the next gen consoles. can anyone clarify how external drives will function on the series x/s? is it storage only for next gen games, but last gen games are playable off the external?

  • How many cans can I fit in that mini fridge?

  • Loved the compraison review..!!

  • It might just be me but the finger prints on the Xbox in the thumbnail made me cringe

  • can you do this test after changing the xbox one x hard drive to a ssd ?

  • Whenever I see this guy on HRwiki, I think to myself: keep this guy away from kids. Thank you.

  • Omg those couches are horrendous. 1995 coke dealer chíc

  • The intro sponsor slot is always perfectly aligned with reaction time to skip past it to the video. The attention to detail is truly amazing

  • Xbox series X and PS5 games can’t be played from external drives, only games from previous console generations can do that. Hopefully this saves some headaches

  • Load times test is useless when you have to do a 20 minute update every time you go to play the game. 😐

    • background updates while console is off is a feature of the xbox one. I'm sure series x can do same thing.

  • It's 2020 and the next generation of consoles still deliver a shitty FPS experience using controllers. The Dreamcast had a mouse and keyboard for their FPS games back in 1999. 🤔

  • I think the one x graphics still look nice sharp and colorful you y’all just dragging the series x

  • Guy:It doesnt habe a tons of launch games. well said.

  • I used an Xbox One for like a week and then returned it. If I wind up getting the Series X, I might keep it!

  • Can you be logged on 1 accounts on both xbox

  • short answer- nothing

  • do you get an online browser like Chrome or IExplorer on the Series X/PS5

  • Excuse me but How do you put the series x into audio only

  • is this a joke? the xbox x screen looks like dog shit

  • The difference? The new Xbox Series X can have a ping pong ball levitate on top of it ;-)

  • Their both same

  • 9:20 Why are their lips PINK??????

  • Linus buddy your forgot to mention the specs are exactly the same, so buy a PC.

  • я ниче не понял что чирикает этот валянок так что обяьсните тут в чем там разница то епте

  • You really don't have to sell the Xbox series X by bashing the previous generation.

  • Go to your nearest Costco and spend 99 bucks on 8 TB Seagate External hard drive

  • I want the Series X console, but I can't justify the purchase while I have my One X.

  • Zero difference in gameplay and graphics

  • xbox 2027: Xbox One Xeries XxX^x can i be honest? really you are satisfied? its like comparing a 2020 build with a similar budget in 2013. to be honest, i dont get how ps4 as xbox are able to make consoles with parts that if you were to put in a pc would cost more than the console. for example xbox series x (again stupid name) apparently can be compared with rtx 2070-2080, and thats just the gpu part, and already we are seeing an xbox that should cost a couple 100 more dollars. the same is going on with ps5. are we getting the stick or are these consoles making in the losses otherwere? in order to be able to compete with pc it has to give way more performance pr $ than pc.. edit: yes i cant share my enthuse enough over the fact that this spec is what will stick/define gaming the next 6-7 yrs. in 2013 i really and i mean really wanted 2020 to be the time where games and physic engines combined with graphics really and i mean really took off. and i know now that games wont be that much more different... i just hoped for a leap in tech i guess..

  • i spent 500 dollars on the one x what a rip-off

  • It’s cause final fantasy is trash

  • Next couple Xbox’s are gonna look like gamer tags from the MW2 days. XxboxseriesxX

  • So essentially the series x is the one that's more powerful and has better backwards compatibility

  • "Why wait" you say....Well these sell out the minute they restock them! THAT'S THE REASON FOR THE WAIT 😤

  • Will gta finally load faster then a year 😱

  • Its a joke lol. Compared on 2 different tvs

  • You should've played forza horizon 4

  • i could not care less of load times. wait a minute is not an isue for me. we are not talking of a commodore datasette or a 5 1/4 inch disk load times here. having to pay 3 times the price for storage ? no thanks. i would prefer save on price and wait a few seconds. my xbox one x is fine to me even my xbox one s. theres no console exclusives for now anyway... 120 fps ? you need a 120 hz to use its potential. games all play on the old gen for now.

  • Idky but playing on big tvs nowadays is not the same I prefer smaller screens I don't have to turn my head to look left or right on (great video btw!) Also hoping you can still install multiple external hard drives and not just 1.

  • Me:dont want to see the video just wanna read the comments and get my info from there Blinds:

  • I am not buying one

  • Is it possible to install a barracuda SSD to console??

  • I'm going to replay skyrim on the series x

  • Damn, is there seriously not a clip of someone putting an original xbox game on a series x just to do it?

  • Getting both because of the games that the one had


  • Should I buy the new one or just get the Xbox one s is my question

    • depends on if u can buy a 4k display

  • Linus: ew are you even running at 4K Me who’s watching on data at 240p: looks the same 🤷‍♂️

  • can xbox one players play with series x and s players

  • Linus was talking about how the Final Fantasy character's hair looked horrible and the 30 fps looked awful... Well, the fact is that I grew up playing games on Nintendo systems, sometimes on the bulky tube T.V.s, so the ability to play a game in 4k on a television capable of supporting UHD and HDR would be a blessing for me, and it just seems as though he's nitpicking. However, he does have the benefit of viewing some of today's latest and greatest technology, not to mention the fact that it's his job to be critical of any flaws he encounters, so I shouldn't judge him too harshly. End of speech.
