Details on the Xbox Series X and S have finally arrived and they both look like absolutely incredible next gen gaming systems.
Microsoft is calling the Series X as the most powerful gaming system ever and, when you take a look at the specs, it just might be. The Series S is the smaller, cheaper console that plays all of the same games. The console’s performance lags a bit next to its bigger counterpart, but it works all the same.
On Wednesday, Microsoft dropped details on both systems. They finally revealed the price for both, the pre-order date and their actual release dates. That price for the Series X is solid. But, honestly? That Series S for $299 might be a steal.
This is the tweet…
Xbox Series X: $499 (ERP)
Xbox Series S: $299 (ERP)
Release date: November 10

Those are two really good prices for these systems — especially after most people thought they were going to end up paying an arm and a leg for the Series X. This is a good mark.
So, now, all eyes on the internet have turned to Sony. There’s been little to no information released about the PS5’s pre-order date, how much it’s going to cost or how accessible it will be.
Microsoft gave people a bargain — on the 25th anniversary of the PlayStation’s first release date, no less! Sony can’t let that slide, right?
The people want to know.
Last week, I was pretty sure I was switching to PS5.
The console pricing plus what looks to be one of the best deals in gaming in the form of Xbox Game Pass (now includes EA Play for no extra charge) and I’m back in the Xbox camp.

While Xbox is promoting All Access, Playstation is preparing their plans to roll out a real-life Battle Royale, where the few survivors can have a chance to pre order the PS5.

Hopefully, we won’t have to wait too much longer. Sony may or may not have responded to the speculation on Twitter with this Ghost of Tsushima GIF.
