That's a pretty poor launch lineup, mostly older games.

that's kind of a sorry list.  there is  a distinct lack of halo MCC which according to alana peirce is not BC compatible...

30 games and several of them are pretty old.

Yeah I take back what I said, just had a proper look rather than a quick scan and this is dire, easily the worst launch lineup I've ever seen.

I think he's wrong but at the same time i think he's right..

Gears 5 was meant to be a hugely improved release on the Xbox Series X, but thanks to some new screenshots from the Xbox Series X version of the game, it seems not.

There were 4 photos shared on Twitter here, so I grabbed them and have some side-by-side comparisons (compared to the Xbox One X on top, and Xbox Series X on bottom). It makes it easier to look at Gears 5 in a side-by-side comparison between the two flagship Xbox consoles. Check them out below.

This is what we were told to expect from the Xbox Series X version of Gears 5:

Higher resolution textures
 - Improved anisotropic filtering
 - Higher-resolution volume fog
 - Higher quality depth of field
 - Extremely far draw distances with high level of object detail
 - Shadow resolution and shadow distance
 - High-quality screen-space reflections
 - Post processing improvements like bloom, lens flare, light shafts, etc

And now, side-by-side screenshots of Gears 5 on the Xbox One X and Xbox Series X:

The fact that they had to include old xb1 games in the launch is beyond sad. Horrible launch lineup.


nnodley

Definitely not a good look to make me keep my preorder.  But i still need to play tons of xb1 games so i can still play them with my gamepass and then just get rid of my xb1

I didn't own an xbox one so this launch lineup is not why I'm buying the system, but it's still so bad lol.

I think MS will take a year or maybe even two before they start really having must have exclusives.

i got the feel that forza and hellblade are the furthest along and they both look like holiday 2021 at the earliest.   i mean, halo is now in "spring" but that thing looks sooo rough that i have to wonder if the roughly 4 month delay is really enough to fix that game.   i wouldn't at all be surprised if it slip until fall/holiday 2021 either.

it really could be a horrible first year for xbox compared to ps5 in terms of first year sales.   not just because ps5 has more games but also because sony seems committed to have a stupidly high amount of stock.  xbox could be 10 million behind in the first year...

No EA Sports titles?

Yeah EA never confirmed that their titles would make launch and now it seems we know why, because they're not. Seems really weird to me.

As a whole EA seems strangely absent from next gen hardware this holiday season, which seems strange as you would expect them to try and take advantage of the next gen thirst especially.

wasn't the rumor that ME trilogy was their big game and it got delayed?
