While the graphics in the infinite trailer didn't look all that bad I could see the argument of why dont you have it running ray tracing at launch so I definitely understand the need for the delay. Still plenty to play on the console though at launch. Definitely looking forward to getting my first console at launch.

Despite all the new features and the processing power of this new Xbox, I'm not sure if it can compete with the PS5 without it's major title. I'm not someone who is obsessed with graphics but even I was underwhelmed by Halo Infinite's presentation a couple of weeks ago, it didn't look as modern as the titles Sony showed in their presentation. It also seems impossible that Microsoft can compete against Nintendo and Sony in the Japanese market.

They pretty .uch stopped heavily trying with selling their console in japan. The xbox had always been way more popular competitively in north America and europe.

Incorrect about Europe, aside from the UK, Xbox doesn't have a lot of market share compared to PlayStation. The only place they stand a chance against Sony, is in North America.

I find funny how Yakuza is basically a timed exclusive on the Xbox, when the sales are most likely drastically better on the PlayStation.
