Ever wanted to have five different games running at the same time, almost instantaneously? Well now you can thanks to Xbox Series X Quick Resume feature. The Xbox SeX is due out at the tail end of this year, depending on what happens with Coronavirus. Microsoft have been slowly lifting the lid on their next generation console and it looks like a monster.
Yesterday Xbox released a small demonstration on the new Quick Resume feature on the new console. This promotional piece is obviously a tech demo, meaning we cannot say if it will work this well in practice. But hey, why not check it out before I talk about it any further?

It does look pretty amazing I have to say. Although, I can’t think of many situations where I would have two never mind five games on the go at one time. Surely you’d save and put another game on? I don’t think I’d trust it’ll be fine and save my progress, not to begin with anyway, until I trusted it.
I can’t say this feature has me salivating about the Xbox SeX just yet. I am very impressed with how fast the SeX looks and the impressive tech specifications that have been released. Normally a brand new console would come in around the same range as a mid-level gaming PC. The Xbox SeX would be more comparable with a higher end gaming PC though. Xbox Series X technical specs means the console should have performance normally only found in high-end PC’s. As time progresses though, the PC side will absolutely move farther ahead and the console generation farther behind. In the life cycle of any console generation, I’m afraid this is inevitable. Whereas PC’s can be upgraded as funds and new tech allow.
The latest report today from Microsoft indicates that Xbox Series X is still on course for a Holidays 2020 release. There were rumors that the Coronavirus pandemic could delay release of the new generation of consoles. However, Microsoft are saying that won’t happen, for now. A for PS5, well Sony have not said anything, released any specs or features so far, so nothing to report as yet on that front.
What do you think of the Xbox Series X Quick Resume function, is it attractive for you as a consumer? Leave any thoughts you have in the usual place.
