After validating the leaked price of the Xbox Series S, which is a small console capable of churning 1440p next-gen games, Microsoft then confirmed that the 4K-gaming Xbox Series X is about to be globally available on November 10, with pre-order starting September 22. On their website, its next-gen console gets listed with a $499 estimated retail price or around Php24,200 when roughly converted to Philippine peso. No word yet regarding official SRP in the country, but we should get info very soon in the coming weeks.
The specs and features of Xbox Series X is no secret as it was revealed by Phil Spencer himself, the Head of Xbox. But to recap, the upcoming console comes with 12 teraflops of power that paves the way for true 4K gaming up to 120fps. Furthermore, it makes the gaming machine 8K ready. Though 8K gaming isn’t really a thing yet, consoles tend to have a longer lifeline than a gaming PC. One of the biggest upgrades from last year’s Xbox One X is the addition of a custom 1TB SSD for faster loading times.
On the design side of things, Xbox Series X introduces a squared vertical build that looks a lot like a mini PC.
