We’re not here to blast Xbox; indeed, Sony and PlayStation are in a bit of quandary at the moment too, but there’s clear evidence that Microsoft has mismanaged the handling of Xbox, making some fundamental errors in how their hardware is presented to consumers. The Xbox Series X|S is a remarkable console, and Xbox has been responsible for some of the most memorable gaming experiences in the past two decades. However, those times seem firmly in the past as Microsoft repeatedly make the same mistakes.

Underpowered Xbox Series S

Releasing a more economical variant of its current current-gen console line-up seemed like a shrewd consumer-first move by Microsoft in 2020. After all, for a significant price drop you could still enjoy some of the Xbox Series X’s marquee features on Series S, such as Xbox Velocity Architecture, DirectX Raytracing, and Quick Resume. It’s those downgrades that are starting to stifle the Series S’s place in market now we’re in 2024 – less processing power and lower max resolution the principal features that’re starting to become a headache for developers and players alike.
