Xbox Series X and Series S Launches Today: All You need to know
This Tuesday, the 10th, which kicks off a new generation of consoles with the launch of the new Microsoft platforms: the Xbox Series X and the Xbox Series S. The new consoles arrive almost seven years after the Xbox One but, unlike the that happened last generation, seem to be better equipped to combat Sony’s dominant position in the home console market.
With two different models on the market, Microsoft is better able to please different consumers. With the Xbox Series S for 299 euros it is clear that the ‘gateway’ in the new generation has never been more accessible, while those who want a more complete edition of the console can choose the Xbox Series X, available for 499 euros.
Players will be able to choose between two models, the Xbox Series X and the Xbox Series S.
But what are the differences between these two versions? Well, while the Xbox Series S has a 512GB SSD , the Xbox Series X offers a 1TB SSD . In addition, the Xbox Series X supports games in both physical and digital format, while the Xbox Serie S only allows you to enjoy games in digital format.
It must also be said that, buying the Xbox Series S, it will only be possible to enjoy games at 1440p resolution and 120fps, with the Xbox Series X being able to achieve the desired 4K resolution. It is more than certain that the Xbox Series S will still be able to ‘ upscaling ‘ to ensure that the games look as beautiful as you would expect on a 4K television but, even so, it may not be the same for many.
The lack of exclusive games has been a major topic of conversation around the new Xbox Series, a gap that is in the eyes of many players heavily offset by the Xbox Game Pass. This subscription service offers users a wide selection of games to choose from, some of which include Xbox branded titles such as ‘Halo’, ‘Gears of War’, ‘Age of Empires’, ‘Ori’ and many more.
Of course, both the Xbox Series S and the Xbox Series X can serve as a multimedia center with virtually all apps for streaming services. Among those available in this release are Netflix , HBO , Disney +, Apple TV +, Amazon Prime Video, YouTube , Twitch and Spotify.
With all this at launch, it is guaranteed that the Xbox Series only has room to grow and that the starting point is given for another generation of consoles, which is much more interesting for players.
