The Xbox Series X will be released in November as expected. Microsoft and Xbox have announced that their next generation gaming console will be available in online and offline stores in about three months, confirming what many have long suspected. As Microsoft strives for a global launch, expect Xbox Series X to also be available in the US in November. The report states that the exact launch date could be November 6th, when the packaging of the Xbox controller indicates that it should not be sold or displayed until November 6th.
Curiously, the time for Microsoft’s official announcement is because it occurred shortly after the announcement that the Halo Infinite was moved to 2021 . In this context it’s more like Microsoft’s attempt to reassure potential customers that the Xbox will be a good buy on launch, even though its biggest name for launch will not be available from the console. Acknowledging the Halo Infinite delay in advance, Microsoft added that the Xbox Series X will have “thousands of games for four generations”.
In fact, it is the main weapon of Xbox Series X against its main competitor – PlayStation 5, which is also expected in November, which will lead to the holiday season 2020 for the western hemisphere. While the PS5 will be backwards compatible with games for the PS4, the Xbox Series X will launch games from Xbox One, Xbox 360 and the original Xbox. Moreover, these games will be offered with support for 4K and/or HDR.
However, backwards compatibility is not its biggest weapon. It will be her subscription-based service, Xbox Game Pass, which will offer all the exclusive Xbox Series X and hundreds of games from other studios, as repeated by Microsoft.
It wasn’t considered that the Xbox wouldn’t be the only choice. If recent leaks can be believed, Microsoft will offer the more affordable Xbox Series S next door. The main difference between them is that one supports 4K and the other does not. It is expected that we will learn more about the Xbox Series S at the end of August.
As for the expected launch date of November 6th, it comes from The Verge, where an anonymous informant sent photos of the Xbox Series X controller’s packaging. He noted that those who registered controllers online have been given an expiration date of November 5, 2021, which further hints that November 6 will be their first purchase date. The Xbox controllers are also expected to be covered by a one year warranty, as opposed to the 90-day warranty on existing controllers.
