- Xbox Series X, MS's next most powerful next-gen console aka the PS5 power rival
- Holiday 2020
- "Series X's square footprint is roughly as wide as an Xbox One controller and (again, roughly) three times as tall. There's an illuminated Xbox-logo serving as the power button, a slot for inserting discs, and very little else to speak of on the front."
- "our fastest, most powerful console ever and set a new bar for performance, speed and compatibility, allowing you to bring your gaming legacy, thousands of games from three generations and more forward with you."
- "industrial design enables us to deliver four times the processing power of Xbox One X in the most quiet and efficient way"
- 12Tflops probably - "eight times the GPU power of the Xbox One, and two times what an Xbox One X is". Maybe 16Tflops.
- "support both vertical and horizontal orientation."
- "new Xbox Wireless Controller. Its size and shape have been refined to accommodate an even wider range of people, and it also features a new Share button to make capturing screenshots and game clips simple and an advanced d-pad derived from the Xbox Elite Series 2 Wireless Controller. The new Xbox Wireless Controller will be compatible with Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs, and will be included with every Xbox Series X."
- In-engine trailer of Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II shown.
- "4K at 60FPS, with possibility of up to 120FPS, including support for Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), and 8K capability. "
- "Powered by our custom-designed processor leveraging the latest Zen 2 and next generation RDNA architecture from our partners at AMD, Xbox Series X will deliver hardware accelerated ray tracing and a new level of performance never before seen in a console."
- "our patented Variable Rate Shading (VRS) technology will allow developers to get even more out of the Xbox Series X GPU"
- "our next-generation SSD will virtually eliminate load times and bring players into their gaming worlds faster than ever before."
- "We are minimizing latency by leveraging technology such as Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) and giving developers new functionality like Dynamic Latency Input (DLI) to make Xbox Series X the most responsive console ever."
- "designed for a future in the cloud, with unique capabilities built into the hardware and software to make it as easy as possible to bring great games to both console and elsewhere."
- "Microsoft designed it to be as quiet as possible: with a single, large fan pushing high volumes of air out of the top. Spencer and Ronald confidently told me that the Series X systems in their homes are no louder than Xbox One X"
- " thousands of your favorite games across four generations of gaming,"
- ""Obviously," Spencer said, "in the name 'Series X', it gives us freedom to do other things with that name so that we can create descriptors when we need to.""
- ""Today, we have the capability of instantly resuming the last game that you were playing. Why can't you do that for multiple games? Many players choose to play multiple games at the same time, being able to instantly jump right back where I was, those are things that we can do with the platform level to make the gaming experience better."

For eighteen years and three console generations, the Xbox community has shown us the power both games and fun can have on all of us. As we enter a new generation of gaming, we see a future where you’re instantly absorbed in your games – where worlds are even more lifelike, immersive, responsive and surprising – and where you are at the center of your gaming experience. With the new Xbox Series X, we will realize that vision.

Xbox Series X will be our fastest, most powerful console ever and set a new bar for performance, speed and compatibility, allowing you to bring your gaming legacy, thousands of games from three generations and more forward with you. Its industrial design enables us to deliver four times the processing power of Xbox One X in the most quiet and efficient way, something that is critically important in delivering truly immersive gameplay. We also designed Xbox Series X to support both vertical and horizontal orientation. It’s bold and unique, very much like our fans around the world and the team of collaborators and innovators who built it.

The name Xbox is an expression of our deep history in gaming, our team’s unrelenting passion, and our commitment to both our fans and the future of gaming at Microsoft. It also signifies our belief that a gaming console should be for just that – gaming.

Alongside Xbox Series X, we also unveiled the new Xbox Wireless Controller. Its size and shape have been refined to accommodate an even wider range of people, and it also features a new Share button to make capturing screenshots and game clips simple and an advanced d-pad derived from the Xbox Elite Series 2 Wireless Controller. The new Xbox Wireless Controller will be compatible with Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs, and will be included with every Xbox Series X.

The possibilities of what Xbox Series X enables developers to achieve was also brought to life this evening with the unveiling of Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II. A sequel to the award-winning Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice from world-renowned developers Ninja Theory, the game is being built to leverage the full power of Xbox Series X. The footage shared tonight was captured in-engine and reflects the power of Xbox Series X available to developers to deliver new universes, experiences and games in ways you have never imagined.

Bringing Developers’ Dreams to Life with Xbox Series X

Games today deliver amazing visuals and tell an array of different and deep stories. That’s why, when we started work on Xbox Series X, it was vital we continue to advance state-of-the-art visual capabilities for developers, while also ensuring they could realize even greater feeling, emotion and empathy in their games. With Xbox Series X, we will elevate the way games look, play and feel. We will also remove the technical barriers faced in previous generations and enable developers to create more expansive, immersive gaming worlds that invite more players to play.

From a technical standpoint, this will manifest as world-class visuals in 4K at 60FPS, with possibility of up to 120FPS, including support for Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), and 8K capability. Powered by our custom-designed processor leveraging the latest Zen 2 and next generation RDNA architecture from our partners at AMD, Xbox Series X will deliver hardware accelerated ray tracing and a new level of performance never before seen in a console. Additionally, our patented Variable Rate Shading (VRS) technology will allow developers to get even more out of the Xbox Series X GPU and our next-generation SSD will virtually eliminate load times and bring players into their gaming worlds faster than ever before.

We are minimizing latency by leveraging technology such as Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) and giving developers new functionality like Dynamic Latency Input (DLI) to make Xbox Series X the most responsive console ever. Xbox Series X is also designed for a future in the cloud, with unique capabilities built into the hardware and software to make it as easy as possible to bring great games to both console and elsewhere. Xbox Series X will deliver a level of fidelity and immersion unlike anything that’s been achieved in previous console generations.

One Console, Four Generations of Gaming

One of the things we’re most proud of with Xbox Series X is the promise we’re delivering to our fans who have and continue to invest with Xbox. Thanks to backward compatibility, you can expect your gaming legacy, thousands of your favorite games across four generations of gaming, all your Xbox One gaming accessories, and industry-leading services like Xbox Game Pass to be available when you power on your Xbox Series X in Holiday 2020.

Building on our compatibility promise, with Xbox Series X we’re also investing in consumer-friendly pathways to game ownership across generations. Leading the way with our first-party titles including Halo Infinite in 2020, we’re committed to ensuring that games from Xbox Game Studios support cross-generation entitlements and that your Achievements and game saves are shared across devices. As we branch out and extend gaming to more players around the world, console gaming will remain at the heart of our Xbox offering. Game creators around the globe are already hard at work building content for Xbox Series X and our 15 Xbox Game Studios are developing the largest and most creatively diverse lineup of Xbox exclusive games in our history. On behalf of Team Xbox, we’re excited to enter the future of console gaming with you and can’t wait to share more in 2020.

Interview with Phil about The Console Design, The Name, The New Controller, Streamlining Gameplay, Next-Gen Xbox Games, The Cloud -

Spencer and Ronald seem to be saying all the right things. There isn't much I can fault with their plans, insomuch as I'm aware of them. It's been days since our meeting, and I can't shake how impressive-looking Senua's Saga is, the bold console design, nor the confidence with which it was unveiled. It's also telling how straightforward the messaging is compared to the Xbox One reveal, which was plagued with cross-media bloat and unnecessary DRM-laden policies. In their place, there's an emphasis on streamlining the gameplay experience we know today, and bolstering it with new technology that not only makes games look better, but easier to play at home or on the go. With the next generation of console hardware around the corner, Microsoft appears primed to redefine how we think about playing games.

Different from all the names they had in mind in August. Xbox Elite was the front runner, with Infinite, Alta, Aura and Helix the rest.

The One X looks fantastic, probably the best looking console ever. That thing is strawberry floating hideous.

Horrendous naming convention, going to cause massive consumer confusion with the likes of the One X around.

Why does it look like a subwoofer?

It looks hideous but I don't really care what a console looks like. Am interested to see what the games will look like.

I like the finish on the thing but it's such an inelegant solution to the problem of having the fastest most bestest console.

So is this the middle console? Aren't they launching two? Is there another top end machine still to be announced?

That looks quality. I love how Microsoft are going all out on cooling ever since the RROD shambles.

The design has grown on me but don't care about the look/name anyway as long as its not too crazy. It fits under my telly which all that counts.

Sounds pretty powerful. Great features are the share button, quiet as XB1X, less load times, back compat, instant resume for multiple games (as long as it works 100%).

Have to wait and see what the various acronym's mentioned bring to my gaming.

Hope they announce I can plug in my HDD to use as storage in the XBSX.

I assume the Xbox Series S (1080p console) will be announced for consumers in the next 18 months or will be just used in cloud server racks.

One thing that design does do is make it easy to make smaller versions and keep exactly the same look. It'll be interesting to watch it shrink over the next 5 years as they put in smaller components.

I like the design as it's just different from the normal box.

The name is going to cause confusion given Xbox One X is thing but I do like the look of it.
