The flagship Xbox Series X is coming on November 10 and will carry a retail price tag of $ 499, Microsoft confirmed on Wednesday. The console will also be available for pre-order starting on September 22. Along with the Xbox Series X console, Microsoft is also a less powerful salesman, but still the next-generation, Xbox Series S console, which will cost $ 299 tag, and with pre-order on September 22, on November 10 as well. Release.
The Xbox Series X is Microsoft’s high-end successor to the Xbox One, and includes very impressive hardware specs, including an 8-core custom CPU, 16 GB of RAM, a GPU with 12 teraflops of processing power, 1. Support for TB NVMe SSDs for super-fast load and transfer speeds, and 4K resolution at both 60 and 120 fps. The Series S is its own low-power sibling, which ejects physical disk drives and offers lower specs, with support for only 1440p resolution at 60fps, along with a smaller 512GB NVMe SSD. However, the Series S will use the same CPU as the Series X. Microsoft is clearly hoping to appeal to both budget and premium gamers with its new generation of consoles.
Earlier this week, the official teaser image and trailer for the Xbox Series S leaked, along with pricing information. Microsoft later confirmed those details and released a launch trailer for the less powerful, and very compact, console, but we don’t know for sure whether the Xbox Series X will share the same launch day until today’s confirmation or not. Also, the $ 499 price tag of more premium hardware was revealed for the first time today.
The Xbox Series X will also be available through Microsoft’s Xbox All Access subscription at a price of $ 34.99 per month over a period of two years. The Series S will also be available for $ 24.99 per month on an installment payment basis over the same 24-month period. Those subscriptions also include Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which provides access to Microsoft’s library of subscription games during your hardware payment period.
