Well if the S is 1/3 of the raw power of the X, an E could be a good midlife update doubling the power of the S 馃檲

Or just all the specs of the S with a disc reader.聽

That was one sneaky uppercut, MS...

I wouldn't be surprised if currently announced titles will roll out as planned, but further down the line everything becomes xbox/pc/xcloud exclusive.

Hard to believe that they stop. They don't have a portable gaming device and I doubt Nintendo makes Gamepass available on Switch even tho it should technically not be hard to pull of.

They recently also added all their games to steam and it's just another way to get extra revenue for them. Everyone wins. Perhaps that changes once their own platform grows bigger...
