The planned release of the new Microsoft gaming platform Xbox Series X is getting closer and new information is always coming up about exactly how the new Xbox works and what features the console offers. For example, you only have to buy Microsoft's own titles once and then run on both the new hardware and the (still) current Xbox One. Now another feature has been announced by Larry Hryb from Microsoft in the official Xbox podcast: You can continue to play seamlessly even after rebooting the console; right where you left off.
The Xbox Series X is scheduled to be released at the end of the year, i.e. in the same period as Sony's next-gen platform PlayStation 5. As a result, information about how the new Microsoft machine works and what features it should offer is gradually being published , One thing is clear: neat performance will probably be under the hood.
