  1. Xbox Series X DRM Makes It Near Impossible to Play Games Offline It seems that Microsoft’s digital rights management decisions for the Xbox Series X are a serious cause for concern. According to a video from YouTuber and game developer Modern Vintage Gamer, the Xbox Series X is unable to play games without connecting to Microsoft’s servers. He tried games off a disc like Rise of the Tomb Raider as well as Hitman 3 and both refused to work offline. While Microsoft recommends keeping your Xbox Series X as your ‘Home Console’ in its settings, it’s a solution that’s described as a ‘ban

Microsoft had warned that the Xbox Series X would be in short supply until at least
  3. There might be a systemic hardware fault with the Xbox Series X after all, as reports emerge of problems with the disk drive and possibly the fan.

The console launched on Tuesday, November 10 worldwide and now reports are beginning to pile up on Twitter and Reddit of the disk drive not working. There seems to be some variation in exactly
  4. The Xbox Series X has been out for just over 48 hours, but already some users are reporting technical issues. A help thread on the Microsoft community help forum reports that the new console is shutting down spontaneously shortly after starting a game. According to the thread, the console is shutting down just a few seconds after starting a game. A full reinstall and a full reset of the console haven't helped, says the user.

  5. If you’re one of the many people who tried to get an Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5 earlier this week, you probably have some strong words for Microsoft, Sony, and every major retailer in your region right now. There’s no two ways about it: these launches have been disasters from the perspective of the consumer, and at this point, it seems likely that PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S are going to have stock issues for some time to come. Obviously, we’d expect new consoles to be popular, fast-selling items regardless of when they launch, but the pandemic we’re current
  6.

  7. iFixit found Microsoft's chunky next-gen console is designed to be cool and quiet. iFixit revealed all of the Xbox Series X parts.

  8. Microsoft publishes known issues for Xbox Series X|S Microsoft's next-generation consoles, the Xbox Series X|S, are set to launch tomorrow, November 10. As we lead up to the launch, Microsoft has revealed a list of bugs and issues you might run into on your new consoles when you get them in your home. Perhaps the most notable issue is that you may experience corrupted images or no signal on your TV if you set the console to 4K resolution at 120 frames per second with variable refresh rate enabled. This can happen even if your TV supports this input, and the
  9. If you haven’t managed to pre-order a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X yet, don’t sweat it. Don’t fret. Don’t worry, be happy. Okay, maybe not happy. For early adopters of shiny new gadgets, not being able to track one down by launch can be disheartening and frustrating. That might be even more pronounced thanks to everything else going on in the world—a tense, divisive election here in the States; the COVID-19 pandemic and resurgent lockdowns; probably an alien invasion or something worse in the near future. I get it. I’m not here to brush off your sadness.

  12.

  13. A first look at Microsoft’s new Xbox Series X console The next-gen Xbox will arrive on November 10th priced at $499 Microsoft’s Xbox Series X console demands to stand upright, loud and proud.
