The Xbox X Series is official. Microsoft's latest generation console was announced at E3 2019, before the official name and build reached the December Game Awards.
The company's sixth console is ready to surprise us from the top: with production capabilities (protected email) and an impressive 16 GB of RAM.
In this article we explain everything you need to know about the upcoming Xbox Series X, including release date details, confirmed features and rumors.
When will the Xbox X be available?
Microsoft has confirmed that the next generation of the Xbox Series X is about to arrive in the "2020 holidays", which means a few more months to go.
How much does the new Xbox cost?
Not surprisingly, so far, Microsoft has been quiet when it comes to pricing.
It was determined that the new console would cost about $ 600 as an estimated figure, but that was widely criticized as prices like these would be less competitive.
A more reasonable figure would be something closer to the Xbox One X sales price of $ 499. It feels like Microsoft is looking for a much lower device for those who are reluctant to spend a fortune on a console, such as the Xbox One S, but will have to wait until 2021 for that.
Although it could eventually sell for more than the Xbox One X sales price, we estimate that the launch price may be the same as Microsoft's current console.
Xbox managing director Phil Spencer told The Verge that unlike the Xbox One, in this case the company "will not be out of place in terms of power or price."
What features will the new Xbox Series X have?
Since the Xbox X Series has already been officially defined by Microsoft, we have divided this category into two sub-categories: the official ones, that is, those that have been certified by Microsoft and those currently under consideration.
Certified features of the new Xbox Series X
The Xbox X Series was first announced as The Scarlett Project at E3 2019 in trailer format:
Other titles were announced along with this initial disclosure. First, it's powered by a custom AMD chip capable of providing four times more power than a high-tech Xbox One X, with the claim that the console will provide (email protected) an eye-catching experience.
In conjunction with the best image support, the console is ready to receive an update on the final department. The current generation consoles come with standard hard drive equipment, so players live with surprisingly fast load times. That's ready to change with the next generation, which will offer faster SSDs as standard.
"The console needs to be built and made of just one thing: games," Spencer said at the launch at E3. Since then, he has claimed that the GPU power of the new console will double that of the One X and eight times that of the Xbox One.
You can watch the full Xbox X World Series action here, presented at the Game Awards in December 2019:
This cinematography is narrated recently to remove the mystery surrounding what we will find in the final product, but at least we preview the console itself.
Its long and slender chassis can be fitted both ways and in perspective, so it should be integrated into your existing home entertainment system. You can't deny that it looks like a PC tower, but that might not be a bad thing because Microsoft is finally trying to close the gap with desktop games.
One of the main attractions of PC players is to keep up with the natives. The Xbox X series can help with the intensity of the confusion, with standard Xbox games that can be played in most modern consoles. The idea is backed by Ubisoft chief executive Yves Guillemot, who says that both the PS5 and the Xbox Series X "will be applicable to almost every previous catalog of previous consoles."
A large grill fan will be important in terms of temperature control, but hopefully the most softness will not always be the case when playing a multimedia theme. The controller has been updated with consideration, but looks exactly like the one currently available.
At least we get a glimpse of games that could use the X Series's immense power, including a machine-gun simulator and a world-first-person shooter.
Rumors about the new Xbox
Based on the introduction of the Xbox One S and Xbox One X, it's no exaggeration to think that Microsoft will keep this Xbox Seriex X format – a cheaper console for many people and a higher console for those with more money. to use
That was what Paul Thurrott originally reported, but has since published a new report saying it is no longer happening. According to a new report, the only effort by Microsoft in the Xbox X Series, suggests that the cheaper variations that were rumored earlier are no longer in development.
We also think the next Xbox will have AR / VR support. Sony has used the interest to find out the reality of PlayStation VR, something Microsoft hasn't yet done despite the impressive capabilities of the One X, and Tony has promised major improvements to the physical department with the PS5.
Filing a patent by the end of 2018 could also shed some light on the next generation of Xbox controllers. Coupled with Windows Windows, Microsoft is looking to improve next-generation controller trigger technology.
The files explain the biker power response and the causes of unresolved conflicts that can give developers the ability to set different levels of opposition to competitors to match what is happening on the screen.
Although it may seem confusing, technology has many applications. As Microsoft explained in the patent application, the trigger can work to "mimic a fixed position that accurately adjusts the firing height or rotation distance of the trigger" or "helps the trigger to fully extend position or" without pressing "when the user's finger is removed from the trigger".
A leak in January 2019 could give us our first unofficial look at the Xbox X Series's build, especially in the background. Publishing on Twitter, DD__DragoX published two images of the following protocol type, including our first look back and the number of ports available.

According to a Twitter post, we can see the USB port on the front and two on the back, as well as HDMI output, SPDIF optical port, Ethernet port, 8-way power output and port on the Xbox product we think is used for repair an error on the consultation stage, but that remains uncertain at this time.
Xbox X video games
Microsoft has confirmed that the next Halo Infinite will be the Xbox X Series title, but surprisingly it won't be the same thing.
That's because the Xbox X Series won't be special in its early years – at least not from Microsoft itself. The company has confirmed that, for at least the next two years, all new games released by Xbox Game Studios can be played on any Xbox or PC, meaning that all first X Series games will also be released on the Xbox One However, third-party publishers they can take a different approach.
That's not to say that it will always be the case – somehow Microsoft should probably cut off support for the Xbox One – but this will remove the pressure to update faster. It helps that the X Series will be compatible with previous versions, so any new Xbox One game you buy at that time will continue to work on the X Series as long as you upgrade.
