Microsoft Officially Unveils Its Newest Gaming Console: The Xbox Series X

The next Xbox officially has its name and look. Microsoft revealed that its newest console launching Holiday 2020 is called the Xbox Series X, and it’s being called the: “The Fastest. Most Powerful Xbox Ever.”



A press release from Head of Xbox Phil Spencer reads in part:


Xbox Series X will be our fastest, most powerful console ever and set a new bar for performance, speed and compatibility, allowing you to bring your gaming legacy, thousands of games from three generations and more forward with you. Its industrial design enables us to deliver four times the processing power of Xbox One X in the most quiet and efficient way, something that is critically important in delivering truly immersive gameplay. We also designed Xbox Series X to support both vertical and horizontal orientation. It’s bold and unique, very much like our fans around the world and the team of collaborators and innovators who built it.


In a competitive environment where Microsoft has been pushing togetherness across platforms (via cross-console gaming and sharing exclusive titles), the company decided against specifically calling the Xbox Series X the most powerful console in the primary tagline, instead calling it their own most powerful console ever.


Spencer also mentioned the new Xbox Wireless Controller has “been refined to accommodate an even wider range of people,” has an advanced d-pad, and also has a new Share button to make sharing game clips and screenshots simple.


The Xbox Series X will run in 4K at 60FPS, with the capability to hit 120FPS, including Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) support and 8K. The console also promises to “virtually eliminate load times.”


Finally, the Xbox Series X will include “four generations of gaming” dating back to the original Xbox. As expected, the console will be backwards compatible for games from the Xbox, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.


Xbox Series X releases Holiday 2020.
