Xbox Series X release date set for November 10th and $499 price

Microsoft has set an official release date and suggested retail price for their upcoming next-generation console, Xbox Series X — November 10th, 2020 and $499. (The Xbox Series S, a more modest version of the next-gen console with less processing power will also be made available on the same launch date for $299.)

The consoles won’t be launching with 343 industries’ latest Xbox flagship iteration Halo Infinite, which was recently delayed until 2021 but will feature Assassins Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs Legion, Gears Tactics, Avowed, and as previous reports on the Xbox Series X’s backwards compatibility have revealed, thousands of games from the Xbox, Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles. Titles such as the reboot of Fable and the latest installments of Forza Motorsport and Destiny will also be made available at some point after the Xbox Series X launch.

Microsoft will also offer a monthly payment program through the Xbox All Access program for those gamers who would rather not make the $499 payment up front. The Series X and Series S will feature $35 and $25 monthly payment sunder the All Access program, which also provides owners with two years of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

According to Executive Vice President of Gaming at Microsoft, Phil Spencer (via Twitter), the release date and price of Xbox Series X were supposed to be revealed next week but an early Monday leak of the information by an online outlet made the team roll with the unscripted punch, so to speak.

Sony has yet to respond with a corresponding release date and price for their next-generation Playstation 5 console, although preliminary estimates had the Playstation 5 pegged at a $599 release price.

Ninja Gaiden was my rite of passage at an early age. After finally beating that game (and narrowly dodging carpal tunnel) I decided to write about my gaming exploits. These days I enjoy roguelikes and anything Pokemon but I'll always dust off Super Mario RPG, Donkey Kong Country and StarFox 64 from time to time to bask in their glory.
