Good news is coming for all video game fans this year 2020. And it is that at the end of this year the new Xbox Series X arrives, faster and more powerful . Specifically, it is launched in November and Microsoft wants you to feed your dreams while you enjoy the new Xbox Series X.

Xbox Series X specs

The Xbox Series X is back with a complete redesign to offer the most powerful Xbox ever. Through its new design, it wants to mark the beginning of a new generation of game consoles in which innovations in hardware and software will be the most important elements to offer great incredible possibilities for games, in this way, they have created an accelerated hardware.

In order to achieve this, a custom-built processor has been built with the latest AMD Zen 2 and RDNA 2 architectures. The new system on a chip (SOC) has been built from the ground up to ensure speed and performance compatible with four generations of games, In this way, users will have access to multiple games.

Thanks to these innovations, user playability has been improved by providing better performance through better boot and load times resulting in a more stable frame rate and higher resolution with greatly improved quality.

Despite all the innovations and features mentioned, we also have some bad news, which is that the long-awaited game Halo Infinite, which was expected to be released together with the console, will have to be delayed until 2021 because of the global coronavirus pandemic, which has slowed down its development. Even so, as we have previously mentioned, the Xbox Series X comes with a large number of new games that you can enjoy while you wait for the launch of Halo Infinite.

Microsoft wants to offer the best user experience through its new console, so it is characterized by more gameplay and less waiting because they know that the player when he starts a new game wants to feel totally immersed and enjoy great precision. For it, they have worked and analyzed each one of the elements that connect the player and the game through the control of the console and its screen to improve its experience and to make it in a faster way.

As we have mentioned, the new generation console aims to offer a better visual experience and a faster loading speed not only by including new games but also by improving those that were already developed. To do this, they maintain their commitment that the games of other generations will be fully compatible with the new model and not only that, but also offer better gameplay and graphics never seen before.

Xbox Series X price

The launch of the new Xbox Series X remains a mystery as there is very little official information at the moment. This little information affects the fact that the official price is currently unknown, although several specialized media affirm that taking into account the characteristics and the competition, the price will not exceed approximately 500 euros in order to be competitive in the market.

As we said, all are assumptions taking into account the other prices of similar consoles and other prices of previous models such as the 2013 Xbox One that was sold at a price of 499 euros, the same price that Xbox One X was launched a couple of years ago.

When is the Xbox Series X release date?

Microsoft confirmed that the Xbox Series X will arrive in November of this year although it did not specify an exact date. There have been different leaks of the technical characteristics that the company had not yet announced and also, it was leaked that the console will be available in stores from November 6, 2020 although Microsoft has not announced the date of the pre-sale, therefore , we cannot confirm the release date yet.

When Microsoft showed the technical characteristics of the Xbox Series X it also announced and showed the final design of the Xbox Series X Controller. This is the new command of the console of the new generation.

It is important to note that although it apparently seems very similar to the control of the old consoles, Microsoft has included many new features. The first of them is that it has made small aesthetic changes to the controller and made it small, making it easier for players to access certain elements included in a quicker and easier way.

As a novelty, they have decided to include on the front of the command, a button that says “Share” to be able to take screenshots and video and then share it very easily on social networks such as Twitter.

From a more technical point of view, they have also included improvements that help the full functionality of new games. Also, they have made it easier to pair with Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and mobile phones to easily switch between devices among other features.

Even so, from Microsoft they have not yet specified the date on which they can pre-order their new Xbox Series X controller. To find out, be attentive on all their social networks and websites and that the pre-order will be made from their official website.

Xbox Series X vs PS5

The new generation of consoles is here to stay, at the end of 2020 there will be two major launches such as the Xbox Series X and also the PlayStation 5. These two consoles have very similar characteristics although they also have their technical differences that we will discuss below:

Both consoles are made with very similar hardware, specifically, both have an 8-core, 16-thread AMD processor, although the frequency reached by Xbox X Series is higher than that of the PlayStation 5. 

In regards to memory, storage and graphics cards, it is important to mention that all aspects are very similar and hardly have many differences. The two consoles in this new generation have included a SSD storage but with different capacity, lto 825 GB Sony will, while Xbox will have 1 TB. 

Finally, referring to aesthetics, we can see that both have wanted to enhance the design in which the standing console is placed. We cannot talk much more about the aesthetics since Sony has not yet shown the complete design of the PlayStation 5.
