    Um, I'm going to say, "The Depths with no lag."

    Is that anywhere close?

    :)

    Yep. Can't believe it only took two generations and an incomparably faster CPU to finally run Blighttown at an acceptable performance level.

    Another example, Zoo Tycoon ran at 30fps on Xbox One, and usually below that. Turns out the framerate is actually unlocked and now it's super smooth.

    Excellent stuff.

    By the way, the top of the console is blowing some real hot air. Maybe I should consider moving it on the top shelf. It's a little bottled in right now.

    Balls. Amazon sent dispatch notice link with DPD saying it'd be tomorrow.

    I hope not, I arranged to wfh for today to be in for it, not tomorrow.

    The cocks.

    The Amazon order still says today on the app, so I'll hold on to some hope for now.

    My S turned up just now... It's bloody tiny! Lovely little machine.

    Took a few attempts/reboots to get updates to show up, but it seems to be chugging along happily now. Looking forward to testing out some load times later on! (main reason I got it to replace a One X)

    I ended up moving it to the top of the cabinet. I was honestly worried to keep it in the smaller shelf, since the space above it seemed to be flaring up. Now it seems a bit cooler.

    For the record, the shelf isn't that cramped and has plenty of space around it. I've kept an Xbox 360 Slim there for the last nine years without a problem. But this Series S appears to blow much more heat outside, almost all at the top and almost none from the sides. Definitely hotter than the Xbox One. On the plus side, it's even quieter than it.

    Mine's just arrived from Very.

    Also ordered a board game today and I honestly thought it was what had arrived just then. The box is bloody tiny!

    Fucking lol.

    Update from amazon, delivery now on Friday. WTF?

    DPD said tomorrow, and hopefully they know better.

    Worst console launch ever!

    Yes, i am aware there are mitigating circumstances, but still.

    😡

    Went out for a bike ride, had other half listening for the door, got back, she said ďoh, I went for a run, a card came through the doorĒ.
    Slightly miffed, but had a shower and got dressed to then see a white van swing into the drive with a Series S sized box pop out. Yes!

    BOARD GAME UPDATE

    Box is bigger than the Series S. Nuts

    Console is an Xmas present for the boy so I'd be remiss if I didn't thoroughly test it out this evening for him before packing it away.

    Similar story here, I didn't even receive an update, went to check the status and arriving Tuesday is highlighted red followed by "We're sorry your package is running late. Please come back Friday if you still don't have it and we'll help you out."

    Not great! But all will be forgiven if it turns up before Friday, it's just shit being let down on the day.

    Total wank so far. New console, excited me, excited kid, but absolutely everything to do with it requires a log-in thatís broken. I can ineffectually flick around some menus, brilliant, thanks.

    Did they say No Man's SKy could run at 60fps? Because even in performance mode, it definitely doesn't look anywhere near 60fps to me, at least in the starting planet. You are better off capping it at 30fps.

    On the other hand, I wasn't expecting We Happy Few to be among the optimized games. And it's a silky smooth 60fps. Maybe I'll actually play the game now... with most of the survival elements disabled, hopefully.

    What's broken about your login? Have you tried setting up a new Gamertag on it? Can you log in with that same account on the Xbox website for example?

    Login issues should be resolved now if you're talking about the same thing as the front page story?

    I just removed and added my account for another reason and it gives you the option of using another device and you can just browse to microsoft.com/link and pop in a code. If you can log into your MS account elsewhere could be worth a shot.

    Definitely worth trying to sort now if you can so that it can download everything overnight and you'll have a new toy to finally play with tomorrow.

    Not resolved for me, as of about half an hour ago. Log-in is fine, works everywhere except the console. Given up for now.

    ?

    Not sure who this post was directed at, but in case it was at my post, there's been a misunderstanding- definitely no saints herr!

    He couldn't log on to his last gen xbox one tonight.

    I have an S on order, until i manage to get a series X.

    The lad will get the S passed on to him once the series x arrives mind.

    I gotta have the good shizz! 😃

    It's a lovely bit of kit this and I'm still surprised by how small it is, even though everyone was saying it was small.

    Gamepass is impressive too, and not having played on an Xbox properly since the Witcher 2 in 2012 there is a lot for.me to try.

    Good luck. Mine appears to still be in Leicestershire. Since 2pm yesterday. I'm going to work.

    It better not arrive on Friday like they're now claiming on the amazon app. Never buying a console from them again, that's for sure!
