Xbox numbers are back on 2021 level of sales. Losing 26 % compared to the previous year isn't a good sign in a console's 3rd year.

yeah the switch collapsed in the 5th year, which is more normal, losing all your sales in your third year is a very bad sign for microsoft

got to get a new console out soon then

32GB ram, RTX 5070, Xbox, just go for it, do something different: ARM+NVidia

Xbox is much closer with AMD though than Playstation. But definitely agree they need to undercut the PS6

the problem is Xbox's me too attitude

I don't want ray tracing but nvidia would provide it cheaply

Give us more performance in a Series S looking console, ARM + NVidia 32GB of VRAM, give us the VRAM to give us good textures once and for all

PS4 games already looked great outside of the textures, and RT was not an improvement, I just wanted all my textures fixed

was so disappointed in the textures of Mirror's Edge Catalyst, but it wasn't their fault, not enough ram in the consoles

jedi survivor still has bad textures, need 32GB of vram
