  • Inside Gaming published this video item, entitled “Xbox Series S has one very annoying limitation” – below is their description.

    Head to to try the Ultimate Shave Starter Set today for just $5 plus free! The Xbox Series S will not run Xbox Series X versions of backward compatible games. A recent story by VGC previously reported on by Digital Foundry has been confirmed by Microsoft. In short, the Xbox Series S will not be able to play any “enhanced for Series X” games. It will instead run the Xbox One S versions with some slight upgrades. It’s a weird limitation to be sure considering the Xbox Series X will be able to play next-gen titles at 1440p. To make matters worse the titles and naming conventions are making it easy to get things twisted and even major outlets are taking heat for reporting on the differences between the Xbox Series X, Series S, One S, and One X. Not us though, we have explained it perfectly….cough. Anyways, keep watching Inside Gaming Daily and we’ll see you tomorrow! Listen to our podcast! Or buy our shirt! OR follow us on Twitter!

    In This Story: Xbox Series X

    Xbox Series X and Series S are upcoming home video game consoles developed by Microsoft. They are both scheduled to be released on November 10, 2020 as the fourth generation of the Xbox console family, succeeding Xbox One.

    Rumors regarding the consoles first emerged in early-2019, with the line as a whole codenamed “Scarlett”, and consisting of high-end and low-end models codenamed “Anaconda” and “Lockhart” respectively.

    The high-end model was first teased during E3 2019 under the title “Project Scarlett”, while its name and design as Xbox Series X was unveiled during The Game Awards later in December. In September 2020, Microsoft unveiled the low-end model as Xbox Series S.
