It’s official. Xbox has announced the release date, specs, and price for its new consoles – the Series X and Series S. We even have a confirmed price and release date here in New Zealand.
As expected, Micosoft will be launching two new next-generation Xbox consoles. The Xbox Series X is the no-comparmise device that will boast the best specs and gaming performance Xbox can offer in 2020.
Sitting in a more affordable price bracket is the Xbox Series X. This is a device that has forgone some of the more expensive specs and features the X boats, such as a disk drive and native 4K output.
