Xbox Series X release date is set to be later this year.

While there is no confirmation over its exact date of launch nor its price, we have more than enough evidence to draw a clear picture of what to expect when the launch time comes.

Here we will share everything we know with you.

When talking about the Xbox Series X release date, Microsoft said “Holiday 2020,” meaning the window is likely to be between October and December.

While there has been no confirmation to be made, as Microsoft usually launches the new product in October, we expect it to do the same this time.

After a leaked banner made it to product pages all around the world, we are pretty sure the date will be November 26, 2020.

Xbox Series X Price

Microsoft has not announced a price for Xbox Series X yet

Microsoft has not announced a price for Xbox Series X yet but analysts guess it would charge $499.

Whatever the price is, it will at least cover the cost of the components that make up the console.

The Series X is more powerful than both the Xbox One X and the Xbox One S. So what we can expect here is a bigger price tag.

While we may have to wait a few months more to know exactly what the price is. The company usually reveals that information in June or July but things are different this year.

However, you can be sure that Microsoft will opt for a lower price point compared to PS5 as Jim Ryan, Sony Interactive Entertainment’s CEO said PS5 might not have the edge in price.

It seems like Microsoft and Sony will wait until the last moment to set the price. But you can rest assured that they have to leave plenty of time for users to pre-order before Xbox Series X release date comes.

Xbox Series X Vs PS5

At this point, there are so many things we don’t know about PS5 and Xbox Series X

At this point, there are so many things we don’t know about PS5 and Xbox Series X but from what we have already known, the two consoles share some striking similarities.

The two companies’ commitment to SSD tech means there is parity for third-party developers. They will both support deeper backward compatibility across archives.

Microsoft and Sony have obviously taken advices from their fan base, who could care less about anything other than the best gaming experience possible.

However, the two companies take different approaches when it comes to next-gen exclusivity. And we don’t have to wait for much longer than the holiday season this year to see what the two companies have up their sleeves when Xbox Series X release date comes.

Xbox Series X Games

The reveal event on May 7 has given us a pretty clear idea of what game is going to the Xbox Series X. Some highlights are Madden 21, Scorn, Assassin’s Cree Valhalla, and Dirt 5. All of the games are optimized to take advantage of the Xbox series x next-gen console.

Here are other things we know about the console. According to Phil Spencer, Xbox Series X will be more surprising, lifelike, and immersive. He also said 15 game studios were working to put together a huge library of games, including Halo Infinite and Hellblade 2: Senua’s Saga.

If you are not a fan of Halo, the good news is the Series X has backward compatibility of four generations, which will be available right from when the Xbox Series X release date arrives.

Backward compatibility isn’t the only benefit users will get. With a system known as Smart Delivery, they can expect some sort of forwards compatibility.

This program ensures players have the right version of games, allowing them to upgrade games to next-gen versions, free of charge.

Another benefit is data will be carried forwards and backward between Xbox One and Xbox Series X. That means users can pick up and play on both generations.

According to Phil Spencer, what Microsoft wants is to make a console that uses Xbox Play anywhere, enabling users to move from device to device. He said the goal here is to have Achievements move with the saved games.

It is sure by now that Project xCloud, Microsoft’s game streaming service will be out around the time of Xbox Series X release date. So if you opt for it, gaming on the go is totally possible.

If you have no intention of investing in a Xbox series x console but still want to try out new games, Microsoft said exclusiveness of game wouldn’t be the case for at least a year and the upcoming titles will work for all devices of the Xbox family.
