Xbox Series X is coming holiday 2020

The Xbox Series X is the next generation of the popular Microsoft console, expected to be released during the holiday season in 2020.

"Xbox Series X will lead us into the future of console gaming". "Our 15 Xbox Game Studios are developing the largest and most creative diverse line-up of games in our history". However, there is one change: the Xbox Series X controller appears to have a share button.

At its heart is a custom processor based on AMD's Zen 2 and RDNA microarchitectures.

Spencer notes that the console will support 4k games at 60FPS with a possibility of support up to 120 FPS including support for Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), and 8K capability. A new d-pad based on the Xbox Elite Series 2 Wireless Controller also makes the cut.

The Xbox Series X was unveiled by Head of Xbox Phil Spencer, and has been labeled "the fastest, most powerful Xbox ever". I don't know, I guess I just have an "X" saturation point and I already reached it around the time the Xbox One X was released. While the console might seem like it meant to be positioned in vertical manner, the company pointed that it was also designed for horizontal position as well. Its Xbox One and successive iterations of the console weren't commercially successful. The next-gen console war in 2020 is starting to take shape and we like what we see - it's game on! The console itself was also shown (seen in the trailer below), as well as a trailer for the newly announced Senua's Saga: Hellbade 2 from developer Ninja Theory, which Head of Xbox's Phil Spencer said was created to take advantage of the new system's power.

The new Xbox Wireless Controller will be compatible with Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs, and will be included with every Xbox Series X.

Series X will minimise latency by leveraging technology such as Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) and giving developers new functionality like Dynamic Latency Input (DLI).

Nothing is known about the Xbox Series X spec list, or any other titles hitting the console. It's also worth noting that the Xbox Series X still features a disc drive, so it seems the gaming industry's dream of streaming-only gameplay has not yet come to fruition.
