Yesterday Microsoft fully unveiled their long-rumored Xbox Series S console, and now they've done the same for their upcoming flagship next generation system.

The Xbox Series X will launch on the same date as the Series S on November 10, 2020 with a price that was also previously rumored online.

Microsoft's most powerful console will launch at a retail price of $500 USD while the Series S will be $300.

Special pricing promotions will also be available via the Xbox All Access program which allows players to immediately obtain their new consoles without needing to spend all of the money up front.

Those looking to pick up the Series X can do so for payments of $35 a month for two years while the Series S will cost consumers $25 a month.

Both will come packed with two years of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate which includes Xbox Live and Game Pass on both console and PC.

Added up, these promotions will end up costing $840 for the Series X and $600 for the all-digital system which may seem pricey at first though it about evens out once you factor in the cost of Game Pass Ultimate.

Both the Series X and Series S will offer gameplay at up to 120 frames per second along with other nice features like an ultra low latency mode which should hopefully be quite nice for playing fighting games on.

Official pre-orders for both systems will begin September 22.

Though it's also set for a November release date, Sony has yet to reveal the price and date for the PlayStation 5.

You can find out more information about the launch of the next generation of Xbox on their official blog page.
