With the Xbox Series S, Microsoft changed the gaming platform bill. If you had assumed you would be, there is a potentially more attractive option, especially if you do not have a 4K TV: The will give US players back a much more modest $ 300. Unfortunately, it sold out quickly on the pre-order date on September 22, and unless more pre-order stocks arrive, you will now have to wait until November 10 for a chance to take one in retail.
Series S is a digital console (no optical drive) that has less power under the hood (mainly because it does not support built-in 4K resolution like Series X) and promises to be a much better deal for most players. Checkfor more details.
There has been a lot of Xbox news in recent weeks, some of which may affect how you choose to buy your new Xbox. GameStop runs a business that you can get. For example, your old Xbox One X or PS4 Pro is worth $ 200, while trading a 500 GB Xbox One can drop $ 100 off the price of your new Xbox. At the same time, Microsoft invites you to buy your next console more like a smartphone – on an installment plan. As part of Xbox All Access, you can get one , no cost in advance.
And if you’m still on the fence between Xbox and PS5, you should know that Microsoft has just announced a deal to buy ZeniMax Media, a parent of Bethesda Studios. If the deal goes through as planned, it would make Microsoft the owner of Doom, Fallout, Skyrim and other A-list franchises. Xbox CEO Phil Spencer recently said that Bethesda games will be offered on Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass subscription service at the same time as they end up on store shelves. They will also be available through Microsoft’s streaming service for video games xCloud, which enables people to play games over the Internet.
