Xbox Series X set to launch Thanksgiving 2020

The Team in Green has just revealed the Xbox Series X's release date.

The firm predicted that even if the next-gen consoles launch during the 2020 holiday season as planned, supply is likely to be constrained and prices could be elevated. All we need now is a real release date and price., and the Xbox Series X is ready. However, the coronavirus pandemic is expected to harm the actual launch, and we could see delays or at least stock shortages, of course.

We also now know the dimensions of the new console, which are 30.1 x 15.1 x 15.1cm (hwd) compared to the Xbox One X's 6 x 30 x 24cm, and its weight, which is 4.45kg, vs the 3.69kg of the old machine. That leaves 10GB for fast GPU optimal memory. The unit inside is a custom-developed Samsung NVMe SSD with 1TB of storage, and a peak sequential transfer rate of 2,400MB/s.

Microsoft already has two solutions, both of which refer to expandable storage. In fact, Microsoft has also released a comparison between the load times of the Xbox One X and the Series X in the form of video you can watch in the space below. But the second type of expandable storage is the exciting Xbox feature I was talking about.

Therefore, enabling the option to add an extra 1TB SSD through an expansion port on the rear could make a big difference.

A USB-C charger indicates the presence of a built-in rechargeable battery, while the controller will also be compatible with Xbox One consoles, and able to remember multiple devices.

We've been saying for weeks that Sony has to match Microsoft's console announcements, and Sony, on Tuesday, finally announced the date for the full PS5 event.
