News about the Xbox Series X has been coming in at a mild clip. The new upcoming Xbox, formerly Xbox Project Scarlett and claimed as “future of Gaming” by Microsoft is Xbox Series X. From its impressive specs to its broad backward compatibility, the Xbox Series X aims to be the foremost next-generation gaming console that Microsoft has ever crafted.
Xbox Series X Release Date
A product listing on the official Xbox website temporarily listed the Xbox Series X as launching on Thanksgiving 2020 in some regions. However, Microsoft’s Larry Hyrb tweeted that the listing was inaccurate and that the company is simply committing to a Holiday 2020 window for now. The Xbox Series X release date is a few times in ‘Holiday 2020’. Launching at the top of the year positions Microsoft to grab some prime holiday dollars, and exposes some intriguing possibilities since a variety of triple-A franchises all launch around Christmas or in November.

How much will the Xbox Series X cost?
The original announcement of the Xbox One price was one of the first mistakes Microsoft made with the positioning of the console. At launch, you will only buy it with a 500GB disc drive, one controller, and a pre-bundled Kinect sensor for a whopping $499 / £429. It wasn’t until June 2014, quite six months after the primary launch, that Microsoft released a replacement Xbox One configuration that removed the Kinect from the box and reduced the worth to $399 / £349, matching the launch price of the PS4.
As the Xbox Series X and PS5 launch around the same time, Microsoft goes to possess to require care to not repeat its past mistakes. But considering that the Xbox One X could also be a much better console than the PS4 Pro, and thus costs more (Xbox One X is $499 / £449 compared to the PS4 Pro’s $399 / £349), it’d be that the Xbox Series X costs more owing to its internal components.
Xbox Series X pre-order
Xbox Series X isn’t quite available for pre-order yet, but we’ll be sure to update this section once it is. However, if you sign up for Xbox All Access now, you can eventually upgrade to a Series X starting Holiday 2020.
Xbox Series X Dimensions
Microsoft has released a Twitter post which may actually give us an excellent idea of how large the Xbox Series X size is going to be. Xbox’s new console can qualify at 151x151x303mm when it arrives later this yearning to be. Xbox’s new console can qualify at 151x151x303mm when it arrives later this year.

Xbox Series X Backwards Compatibility
Xbox Series X goes completely backward-compatible according to the Microsoft blog post. “Our commitment to compatibility means existing Xbox One games, including backward-compatible Xbox 360 and original Xbox games, look and play better than ever before. Your favorite games, including titles in Xbox Game Pass, enjoy steadier framerates, faster load times, and improved resolution and visual fidelity – all with no developer work required. Your Xbox One gaming accessories also come to the fore with you.”, as claimed by one of Microsoft’s blog posts.
Xbox Series X Specifications
As for the actual Xbox Series X specs, the sizzle also promised 120 FPS, 8K, and ray tracing supported by dedicated hardware. In fact, one Microsoft employee promised “frame rates we’ve never seen before,” though that’s surely just on consoles and not accounting for contemporary PC hardware. the most recent blog post from Microsoft outlines that the Xbox Series X is getting to be “the most powerful console ever”, powered by AMD’s latest Zen 2 and RDNA 2 architectures.
It’ll deliver four times the processing power of an Xbox One and may enable developers to leverage 12 teraflops of GPU processing, aided by variable-rate shading (VRS) technology, which should end in additional stable frame rates and better resolutions for games. There’ll even be support for DirectX raytracing, which may mean your games are imbued with true-to-life lighting, accurate reflections, and realistic acoustics in real-time. We also know that the system will feature 16 GB RAM and that it will support external storage drives.
Built around powerful new hardware from AMD, including its new Navi graphics architecture and a Zen 2 CPU, the Series X is supposed to attenuate (or completely eliminate) load times and acquire you into games as quickly as possible. Dynamic Latency Input (DLI) and HDMI 2.1 is additionally launching to optimize latency, starting with the Xbox Wireless Controller, which may confirm that input is synchronized immediately with what’s displayed, making controls even more precise and responsive.
Xbox Series X controller – What does it look like?
Xbox Series X will be launching a new and better version of the Xbox Wireless Controller. Having quite a number of similarities with current Xbox One controller, the gamepad will feature –
- Share button for easily capturing screenshots and game clips
- Tactile dot pattern on the triggers and bumpers
- The matte finish on D-Pad, bumpers, and triggers
- Finely tuned angles to offer you more leverage without much movement
- Still works on batteries
- Bluetooth Low Energy connectivity for pairing with more devices, including PC, Android, and ios.
- USB-C type port for charging od battery
Xbox Series X Memory Card
There is a fresh accessory for the Xbox Series X that’s putting a replacement spin on the thought of memory cards. The Xbox Series X Storage Expansion Card was announced as a part of the Xbox Series X tech unveiling. It provides additional game storage at peak speed and performance by replicating the console’s internal custom SSD experience. The 1 TB memory card is inserted directly to the back of the console via the dedicated storage expansion port. Cheer up because this would be enough to boost the Xbox Series X internal storage for more games.
Xbox Series X loading times – How long will we expect games?
Using the State of Decay 2 on the Xbox One X and Xbox Series X side by side, the Xbox Series X loading the game in 11 seconds. Its 40 seconds faster than the Xbox One X, which takes an entire minute to load the game. Interestingly, Microsoft has released the video shown below to showcase the sort of Xbox Series X loading times we should always expect.
Xbox Series X ports Description
There have been tons of discussions about the Xbox Series X ports. One can easily identify those connections on the rear side of the new console, and have an idea regarding the connectivity it’ll bring with it. At CES 2020, AMD showed off an attempt of the Xbox Series X which features two HDMI ports, two USB-C ports, and an S/PDIF port. However, it clothed that it had been just a render, and AMD was forced to admit that it “does not accurately represent the planning or features of the upcoming console”.
But then some recent reports claim to understand the reality about the Xbox Series X ports, which apparently include two USB-A ports, one HDMI port, optical audio, and therefore the usual power port. Take a look at them-
Xbox Series X reportedly has (in the back) two USB-A ports (SuperSpeed), ethernet, single HDMI port, optical audio, and a power connection. USB-A port on the front as well https://t.co/ZRtzAfPpcW

But then, another picture appeared. It’s an ambiguous situation since no one knows where the pictures have emerged from, but they clearly depict a true Xbox Series X from the front and back, revealing the console’s various ports. Check them out here.
The images clearly show an influence port, ethernet, two USB ports, optical audio, and an HDMI port on the rear, alongside a weird square port that’s only for the prototype.
Over on the front, we’re watching the disk drive, alongside one USB, because the other rumors suggested.
Does Xbox Series X have VR?
Microsoft has a stimulating relationship with video games. On the PC side, its Windows Mixed Reality initiative has found moderate success, featuring a broad sort of lightweight VR headsets and offering an expansive library of games and experiences. On the console tip, however, news has been less positive – eventually, year’s E3, Microsoft’s CMO for gaming told Gameindustry.biz that the corporate “doesn’t have any plans specific to Xbox consoles in a computer game or mixed reality.”
However, all hope isn’t lost. A newly discovered patent seems to suggest that Microsoft is functioning on a VR headset alongside motion controllers, a stylus, and a fully-fledged boundary mat which may turn your front room into its very own digital playground. With the continuing success of Playstation VR, which currently boasts the foremost sales of any high-end VR headset, Microsoft could still have an appetite to dip its toes into the virtual pool.
I hope that you have got all the information much required regarding Xbox Series X. Till then watch this trailer released by Xbox.
