We keep getting lesser games because of those consoles.

It's a strange move to alienate everyone else just for the S, too. Even if the S is about 75% of the total Xbox sales (not sure about the video game market), both S and X are only half the PS5's sales and even less of the video game market (30/70), and consoles/PCs are almost on par (about 57/43). It's clear the S is really not the big part of the pie.
Who knows what the truth is outside of the fact that on console it'll run at a locked 30fps (as it standard). It seems like the article starts speculating on its own from there (also standard).

"As the weakest current generation console has only 25% more RAM, Warhorse Studios decided to make the game only 25% bigger than its predecessor."

That's not how RAM works.

You're right, and saying that the game can be 25% bigger doesn't mean much. The engine is a new version, assets take more memory, the graphics cards have changed, etc, so it's not even directly comparable.

PS: The article isn't as clear as the Czech one. The Xbox S has 10 GB compared to 8 GB for the PS4 and Xbox One when they made KCD1, so they have minimum 25% more RAM.

No plan survives development. Join the cinematic director of Larian Studios, Jason Latino, for an account of how the realities of making a game at the scale and reactivity of Baldur's Gate 3 required constant evolution and reexamination of first principles. In this GDC 2024 talk, Jason goes over the initial vision and tracks the specific moments that forced changes on tools, team and approach--leading up to the final challenge--bringing in the release date by a month.

Talking about the couple of titles I've reviewed so far in 2024 that didn't quite live up to my expectations.

Wow I’m not much of an action RPG guy but I wasn’t so sure about Enotria, kingdom come deliverance 2, and unknown9: awakening but those trailers sold me. They look wonderful.
