Magic!!! Owner of PS1/2/3/4 already, this time I bought the XBOX SERIES X after studying 120-150 reviews on YouTube and starting from Auston Evans' first review (16M views) in 2020, I couldn't understand how they fit so much technology into this small box. I had never seen it in any store since no one had stock, and I bought it from an online store where I didn't expect it to be so small in size (slightly larger than a milk carton at the supermarket). Already owning a serious Gaming PC RTX3070/5900X, I tried to compare it on a QLED TV. Comparatively, the difference in graphics from an experienced eye is about 20% in next-gen games (e.g., Division 2, NBA 2K22) where the PC has an advantage, but the XBOX, for some magical reason, has much better response when testing with 2 different controllers, XBOX/Elite 2. As for older games (that don't have any upgrades / filetype: XboxOneGen9Aware or XBOX), such as Battlefield 3, Darksiders 3, etc., the graphics are at XBOX ONE levels and inferior to the PC. It should be noted that the XBOX SERIES X with 12.1 TFLOPS reaches the performance of NVIDIA RTX3060 (where with 450-500 Euro you only buy the graphics card, while with XBOX Series X you have a complete machine at the same value).
Regarding the XBOX and ELITE 2 controllers, it is worth mentioning the advantage that on XBOX, the sound is wirelessly transmitted to the audio jack of the controller (with high-level Dolby Atmos sound), while on PC, it requires the Microsoft USB Stick (where the sound is altered in volume and quality). A major advantage of the XBOX SERIES X is the prices of games (digital copies) compared to the PS5. Specifically, you can find classic games like Call of Duty OPS3 for 5 Euro in online stores of your choice, while on PS5, the equivalent price is exclusively from the PS Store, at 60 Euro, where 2-3 times a year, if you're lucky, you can find a discount. In short, by spending only 30 Euro (WWW.ALLKEYSHOP.COM), I bought the entire old series of Call of Duty (Digital Copies), which had a total value of 250 Euro on the PS Store. As for the GAME PASS (note that on PC, I have purchased over 70 games), there is some misinformation (for an old player / for newcomers without experience, they will be thrilled) because the games are recyclable. Everyone mentions the games that are added each month, but no one mentions the ones that are removed each month (as it happens with Netflix). Specifically, this year they have removed serious titles such as Destiny 2 DLC Pack, Nier Automata, Street of Rage 4, Dark Alliance, Control, etc., and about 20 other games. Also, I subscribed to the 3-month Game Pass (not the Ultimate) and then realized that all EA Games are excluded (Fifa22, Battlefield series, Titanfall 2, etc.), which means that it only gives you the opportunity to pay a 1 Euro difference for the first month (for each prepaid month), but then you have to pay the regular 13 Euro for the remaining months. Perhaps it's worth starting with a subscription to the Ultimate from the beginning, which costs 13 Euro per month, where there are several store offers on the internet where one can find a 12-month Ultimate subscription for as low as 60 Euro (that's worth it). Also, I should mention the main problem, which is the internal 1TB disk that easily fills up in 2022, but also the ridiculous price of 420 Euro that one has to pay for a 2TB or 220 Euro for a 1TB Expansion Card. The only good thing is that older games (filetype: XboxOneGen9Aware or Xbox) like Double Dragon Neon, Halo Master Chief, Call of Duty Infinite, Advanced OPS3, etc., which do not have an upgrade from Xbox One to X/S, can be played from an external disk (there is a link below that explains which games can be played from an external disk). Regarding the affordability, only games that are not Gen9 filetype can be played from a USB external disk (in essence, all Xbox One games can be played from an external disk with XBOX & Gen9Aware filetype and now they will have a stable 60 FPS without frame drops.
(play Xbox Series X/S games from an external Hard Drive)
A great combination is to buy a 1TB Expansion Card and a 1-2TB NVME External USB Drive (be careful that the USB cable is the blue USB 3.0 plug for fast speed).
Finally, the major advantage of Xbox compared to PS5 is the QUICK RESUME (known to those who have dealt with the Mame Emulator equivalent load state) where you can switch between games in 5 seconds without waiting for it to reload (such technology may never be seen on PC). What I noticed (because the console is earthly) is that if you have 4-5 games open, there are quite a few frame drops, so there should only be 1-2 titles open at the same time.
Also, recently AMD released FSR 2.0 for Xbox where we expect improvements in performance in several games in the future (e.g., waiting for a stable 60 FPS in the near future for Red Redemption 2, etc.)
...I forgot the most basic thing (I have never encountered this on Playstation/PC), no matter what game is running, it is COMPLETELY SILENT; the only noise is made by the Portable Fan with the lamp next to it, not the XBOX SERIES X // it really needs to be declared as one of the INVENTIONS of the 21st century.
The only negative thing I will mention (the same applies to PS5): classic titles have not been upgraded and still run at 30 fps, such as Red Redemption 2, Tom Clancy Wildlands, Crash Bandicoot Trilogy, Darksiders III, etc.
Extra Bonus: A discovery I recently made for LG TV owners (IPS, not OLED) from the 2019 series like UK, UM, etc., if you lower the resolution from 4K to 1080p, the XBOX Series X recognizes 120Hz and can play the titles that have been enhanced at 120 fps smoothly (games list/link)
Extra Note: One can install the Retroarch Emulator on the XBOX Series X to play hundreds of MAME, Megadrive, NES, Amiga, PS2, ZX Spectrum games, etc. (something that the PS5 cannot do yet) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKgVRBtUBFQ&ab_channel=ETAPRIME
