Here are the boxes for both the consoles.

Notice how XSS's box only mentions 120fps and no resolution whereas XSX mentioned 4K 120fps.

MS gonna play in the grey area for resolution which is expected given the specs of the XSS.

I don't get this 4K 120 fps thing. I saw a review of RTX 3080 where some games were not even hitting 60 fps on 4K maxed-out settings. Unless this 4K 120 fps thing is about indie games or something.

Console games are rarely maxed out versions of PC counterparts unless they come a generation later. Multiplayer games will be able to hit that frame rate target more often. They already showed Gears 5 running at 120fps. As for the resolution, both consoles will not guarantee native 4K in every game as thats upto the developers. Even 8K being slapped on the PS5's box is an indication of what display resolution it supports, not necessarily the resolution games will target (maybe 2D /indie games at best).

DF have put up an exhaustively well detailed article on how BC will work on Xbox Series S, it dispels some of the earlier misinformation and clarifies a lot:


TL;DR Original 2001 Xbox 1 and 360 games which support BC will run at 1440p instead of 4K like Series X or Xbox One X.

And Xbox One games which get BC enhancement patches either from MS or the developer of the game itself will also run at 1440p, otherwise non enhanced games will run at whatever the original resolution those Xbox One games ran at (720p, 900p, 1080p whatever it was originally).

Pakistani sellers be like

Microsoft Xbox Series S 512 GB Digital Console
5 Stars 2 Ratings & Reviews

Rs.109,999 Rs.138,999 21 % OFF


Cost US $300 tax is 2.9% to 7.25% depending on state, let's say full 7.25% = $21.75

Today's Open Market Rate for USD = PKR 165.90

$322 x 166 = 53,452 ~ 54,000/-

I get it that there is a early adopter fee, shipping from USA, customs, profit margin etc, but Rs.56,000 over a 54,000 product LOLOLOL

Funniest sh!t is the 21% OFF and a 5 star rating with 2 reviews :ROFLMAO:

It's probably cheaper to fly to Dubai, get it from an official retailer there for a much more reasonable price and fly back :p

(I absolutely do not know the current airfare tickets from Pakistan to Dubai, don't @ me plz)
