They didn't 'throw' the 'xbox s' under the bus, even if they 'threw' it under the bus, its Metro. The original Metro ran like crap on most GPU's at the time and just about ok on the 'fire hazard' GTX480, we're lucky we don't need to wait for the 'Next' Consoles to play it.
*The attention is in the details and that confirms the difference between PS5 and Xbox Series X - - for some people it doesn't matter.. , like correct spelling 👍
Is the author some Sony fan boy or something? What does he have so against the series s. Yes the gpu is less powerful and devs will have to lower graphical settings. But if you're on a 1080p TV, this is wonderful entry level console, factor in game pass and all access, and you're a gonna be a very happy gamer and you're pockets will thank you! The title is click bait trash and the author should be noted and avoided.
