    Yes all options on that screen I have selected.

    As below and set to 4K 120Hz in display settings.

    No luck with RDR2 loading so installing from scratch; says it'll be under 50 minutes which isn't too bad before the updates roll in

    Received mine yesterday (Game and Royal Mail) and it's bloody amazing.

    Despite owning a XBox One from launch I've mainly been gaming on my PS4 and PC this last few years so combined with a game pass it's seemed one of the best launches, with the best line up.
    Gears 4, Forza Horizon, Jedi: Fallen Order, Planet Coaster are all new to me. I've also fallen for Unravel 2, playing with my daughter. Best of all, they aren't costing me £60 a pop.

    Loving it.

    There was no issue with your phrasing the first time. But I didn't claim the games could be played outside the Sony ecosystem. Either you misread my post, or you're presenting a straw man argument. I'm not sure which.

    Installed some Xbone BC games on my external SSD last night and just used the Quick Resume, I love it! Be better when they patch it back in to the optimised titles though.

    Also I can confirm that the Xbox One Digital TV tuner does not work on the Series consoles. Always tackling the real questions over here. :p

    I don't know why everyone keeps posting this. It is so obviously fake, and has been proven to be so.

    Mine set up next to the Ncase M1 - This bookshelf is to the right of my desk, using a Dell S2721DGF 1440p / 120hz via HDMI for the Series X, played some Gears 5 multiplayer last night, what a difference! Hoping that every online game goes the way of offering a 1440 / 120hz mode, even with dynamic scaling it is well worth it!

    Just need to get some longer cables before doing a complete tidy up job to get close to 0 showing!

    Its not a 4k machine. So why would it. There are still improvements made to the games that are patched. Also even though that aren't will have features like, better resolutions and higher frame rates.

    The loading times / quick resume are truly stunning.

    It's faster than my ssd equipped PC at getting into games

    My warranty ends on 23/09/2021. The day after i pre-ordered a machine i hadn't received yet, the warranty started.

    Obviously a mistake but one i hope gets sorted in the near future ffs.
