The next-generation Xbox gaming consoles Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S have been set to launch on November 10, 2020. Both Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S will pre-order starting from September 22. Xbox Series X is the most powerful gaming console and Xbox Series S is the next-generation smallest form factor gaming console outperform at the most affordable price range.
Xbox All Access is coming to fans in 12 countries this holiday, expanding to Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, South Korea, Sweden, UK, and the US to offer a next-generation Xbox and 24 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate that will start at $24.99/month at no additional cost. Also, EA Play comes to Xbox Game Pass at no additional cost.
We believe that access to the next generation should be available to everyone. And we know that price is an important factor for many of our fans. To complement Xbox Series X and invite more players into the next generation sooner, we built Xbox Series S—an all-digital, next-gen console designed to deliver everything that is core to next-generation gaming – faster load times, higher frame rates, and richer, more dynamic worlds – in our smallest, sleekest Xbox ever.
Developing two consoles in parallel from the beginning enables us to deliver the most powerful console ever in Xbox Series X and make next-gen gaming available and affordable to more players on day one with Xbox Series S.
Price of Xbox Series X Series S
The Xbox Series X is starting at $499 and Xbox Series S is starting at $299 respectively. With Xbox All Access for fans in 12 countries at no additional cost, the program will add more countries and retailers in 2021, said Xbox.
