    Noticed that The Last Scape specifically mentions its offers smart delivery when the XBSX comes out
    I'm running it on an XB1X and it has an XB1X logo on the start page, so it obviously recognises which platform it is running on- think this may be the first game that is out & specifically offering smart delivery

    Not sure what the point would be really. They've been trying for nearly 20 years under the xbox brand. I think most people would see through it like a fucking window if they brought out there new console and stuck a Sega logo on it.

    Only thing I can possibly think that might sway punters is if they've managed to get exclusivity on Sega games.

    Despite loving the OG XBOX and the 360, I'd buy the shit out of a SEGA badged box. Seriously, has MS ever been a great brand for this shit? Operating systems and Office - I'd be happy if they ditched the baggage.

    A new 4K HDR 120fps Out Run would be nice though.

    Like Konami, sega are sat on a mountain of IP. They will buy themselves an entire generation of console exclusives that people actually want.

    As long as it gets me Jet Set Radio Future, they could call it the Sega Xbox Series Dreamcast 2 for all I care.

    I'm just gonna chalk it up as a crazy rumor though.

    For me one of the best selling points of the series x is that the titles from ms studios will be in game pass day 1. You can make huge savings on games compared to other platforms. At the end of the year you might spend the least amount of money on gaming with xbox.

    Gamepass makes sense if you play a lot of games, but for me Iíll just get teh Halo and teh forza after theyíve gone down in price a bit and have them tied to my account forever. Also, nothing stops them from jacking up the price slowly, and if you cancel youíll have nothing left. Maybe Iím old fashioned but I just donít trust it.

    I wouldn't expect many games on Game Pass for the XSX at first. Microsoft's own stuff, of course, and a lot of indies. But everything else will probably have to wait a while.

    But still having some available library in the first couple years will be good. Usually, the first two years of a new console are when the games are most expensive and least often found on sale. Game Pass will at least cover that period nicely. Even just for that, it's a good deal to have right now.

    Also, I get to play Halo Infinite at launch for zero extra money, and by the time I have to buy it again, it will have become a lot cheaper.

    I like Game Pass for the games I wouldn't normally play and the first party titles.

    Wouldn't remotely surprise me if it was something like this. I was guessing something equally as exciting like a new line of Sega branded tea towels or a pachinko machine.

    What Sega thinks is big news and what there fans think is big news are two different things.

    SEGA are set on a fucking treasure trove of IP (to a mid-30's guy like me, anyway); I'd kill for a reboot of any of the following;

    Crazy Taxi, Afterburner, Jet Set Radio, Gunstar Heroes, Golden Axe, Alex Kidd, Space Channel 5, Samba de Amigo, NIGHTS, Outrun, Phantasy Star, Shinobi, Space Harrier, Super Monkey Ball, Virtua Fighter and Virtua Tennis. I'd even take a new Ecco for fucks sake.

    Iím also a big SEGA fanboy and would love some of these titles. Ecco is well above some of the others for me (although perhaps because Iím a 40s kind of guy, not a 30s one). Ecco on the Dreamcast is one of the great forgotten games. A game like that on modern hardware would be ace.

    What would be a great announcement would be that the Series X would be VIVE comparable and they were releasing a number of games such as the new Half Life.

    That would be pretty damn cool.
