The Xbox Series X and Series S may seem as though the eventual fate of Xbox, yet Microsoft isn’t playing just one game any longer with the next age of, well, gaming. Yes, it has two boxy machines that are dispatching on November 10 around the world, including India. In any case, Microsoft has an eye on different avenues as well. All things considered, new Xbox Game Studios games — that covers anything made with Microsoft’s support — will also be playable on Windows 10 computers, and even the Xbox One (temporarily). You don’t need to pay for a significant number of them; you can get them with the Xbox Game Pass subscription. And in certain North American, European, and Asian markets, you can play a ton of Xbox games on your phones. The next age of Xbox is wild. 

However, for those of us with an eye on the two new consoles — Series X and Series S — there are a ton of questions holding back to be answered, similar to what will I get? We should see. Better graphics and execution, with genuine local 4K resolution at 60 frames for every second (fps) on the Series X. You can even go up to 8K or 120fps, assuming you have the equipment to convey it. 

The Xbox Series S is glad to convey just over full-HD (up to 1440p) resolution, yet it still sticks to that 60fps promise. And it can go up to 4K as well with equipment scaling. At that point, there’s the promise of beam following, which equates to consistent with life lighting, dynamic environments, and exact reflections. On the head of that, both new Xbox consoles promise faster burden times thanks to a solid-state drive (SSD), taking over from the hard disk drive (HDD) seen in current age consoles. 

Every one of that means your preferred games will look more realistic than any other time in recent memory. After an ongoing super acquisition, Microsoft presently has 23 studios as a major aspect of Xbox Game Studios, from the producer of Halo (343 Industries) to the maker of Elder Scrolls (Bethesda). 

Each game — old or new — from those studios will be accessible with Xbox Game Pass, which is extraordinary for those on the Xbox ecosystem. It’s the reason some consider Microsoft’s Xbox subscription service, which as of now has more than 15 million members, the genuine eventual fate of Xbox. It does not just give you access to hundreds of games on Xbox devices yet in addition to Windows 10 and (in select markets) Android phones. It’s almost as if Microsoft doesn’t give it a second thought on the off chance that you purchase a Xbox or not. That is in finished contrast to Sony’s strategy with the PlayStation 5, which is basically doing what has worked previously. You can’t accuse it either, given Sony has sold twice as numerous PS4s contrasted with the Xbox One. Microsoft isn’t playing by Sony’s rules any longer and it’s prepared to adopt another strategy to next-gen. 

Pricing And accessibility of X box series X and series S

Microsoft’s double strategy with the Xbox Series family should permit it to sell the promise of next-gen at a much lower starting point than usual. The Series S costs Rs. 34,990 in India, $299 (about Rs. 22,000) in the US, £249 (about Rs. 23,800) in the UK, CA$379 (about Rs. 21,200) in Canada, €299 (about Rs. 25,800) in Europe, AU$499 (about Rs. 26,600) in Australia, and NZ$549 (about Rs. 26,950) in New Zealand. 

Its all the more impressive cousin, the Series X, comes in at Rs. 49,990 in India, $499 (about Rs. 36,600) in the US, £449 (about Rs. 42,800) in the UK, CA$599 (about Rs. 33,400) in Canada, €499 (about Rs. 42,900) in Europe, AU$749 (about Rs. 40,000) in Australia, and NZ$799 (about Rs. 39,200) in New Zealand. Brain you, not every one of these prices are inclusive of sales taxes in each market. 

You don’t need to pay forthright, however. Microsoft is expanding its Xbox All Access program to 12 countries with the dispatch of the Xbox Series family: Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, South Korea, Sweden, the UK, and the US. You can get either the Series X or Series S, which is combined with a two-year subscription to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. 

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate offers access to more than 100 Xbox One titles and all forthcoming Xbox Game Studios titles, more than 100 Windows 10 games, Xbox Live Gold which has a month to month free games and is required for online multiplayer, and EA Play that brings all the more free games and trials for new EA games.

The Series X Xbox All Access comes in at $35 (about Rs. 2,600) in the US, £29 (about Rs. 2,750) in the UK, AU$46 (about Rs. 2,450) in Australia, and NZ$52 (about Rs. 2,550) in New Zealand. Every one of these prices are every month for an aggregate of 24 months. 

You can expand the storage up to 1TB with an expansion card. Microsoft has collaborated with Seagate on an official one, which costs $220 (about Rs. 16,250) in the US. You can use old hard drives as well, yet they might be used for storage. Xbox Series games must be played off SSDs, however you can play in reverse viable Xbox titles off your external hard drive. 

Lastly, the Xbox Series X is much greater than the Series S. They are about the same stature, however, the Series X is a lot more extensive (or more profound, contingent upon how you see it). As a result, it’s a lot heavier as well, you probably won’t need to move it around a ton. 

There are some basic things between the two new Xbox consoles as well. Both support Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos 3D sound for gaming, and equipment quickened beam following for more realistic lighting in games. 

Generally, the Xbox Series X is a substantially more remarkable console than the Xbox Series S. 

Controllers Of X Box series X and series S:

Another console age also means another regulator however, Microsoft is keeping things basically the same with the new Xbox Wireless Controller. It’s generally got the same design as the Xbox One regulator, except that it’s slightly smaller, which should be uplifting news for those of us with small hands. It has a USB-C port for charging and its D-cushion is presently more like the one from Xbox Elite regulator. And following Sony, Microsoft has included a devoted share button in the middle. 

The new Xbox Wireless Controller will be accessible in dark, white or blue at dispatch. You will get one when you purchase a Series X and Series S. There’s no word on India accessibility right now on the off chance that you need extra controllers. They will cost Rs. 5,390 (dark/white) or Rs. 5,890 (blue). It costs the same as the Xbox One regulator elsewhere: $60 (about Rs. 4,400) in the US, £55 (about Rs. 5,150) in the UK, CA$75 (about Rs. 4,150) in Canada, €60 (about Rs. 5,160) in Europe, AU$90 (about Rs. 4,700) in Australia, and NZ$100 (about Rs. 4,850) in New Zealand. 

You don’t need to purchase extra controllers. Microsoft has said that all formally licensed Xbox One controllers are in reverse viable with the Xbox Series family. 

In the event that you do wind up purchasing the Xbox Wireless Controller, you will require two AA batteries to play wirelessly. On the other hand, you can purchase the “Xbox Rechargeable Battery + USB-C Cable” pack. It costs $25 (about Rs. 1,840) in the US, £20 (about Rs. 1,870) in the UK, CA$30 (about Rs. 1,660) in Canada, €23 (about Rs. 1,975) in Europe, AU$30 (about Rs. 1,570) in Australia, and NZ$40 (about Rs. 1,940) in New Zealand. 

Wich one You should Purchase: X Box series X or X Box series S?

To answer that, we need to take a gander at three unavoidable issues. First up, what sort of TV do you have? The Xbox Series S is focusing on 1440p at 60fps while the Xbox Series X is designed for 4K at 60fps gaming. In fact, 1440p is 2560 x 1440 pixels while 4K is 3840 x 2160 pixels. While the Series S can still do equipment upscaling for games to 4K, it’s not local 4K. 

That means you should possibly get the Series X in the event that you as of now have a 4K TV or you intend to overhaul soon. The Series S, in the interim, is extraordinary for those who have a full-HD 1080p TV or a 1440p screen. This means that the Series X should convey more detail than Series S with 4K displays. 

Regardless of whether you don’t have a 4K TV, both new Xbox consoles should convey a smooth experience regardless, thanks to the 60fps yield. 

ou can move up to an even smoother experience, as both Series X and Series S will support up to 120fps for gaming. The Series X can also go up to 8K resolution. Yet, you will require further developed displays, with 120Hz refresh rate and support for 8K resolution, to utilize those features. You’ll also need to ensure it’s an HDMI 2.1 viable display. 

The second question you need to answer is your Internet speed. On the off chance that you get the Xbox Series S, you should download each game you play, as there is no disk slot. Of course, even with the Series X, you will still need a decent Internet association with download updates and patches. In any case, with the Series S, you are taking a gander at a more prominent requirement for fast broadband. 

And with both new Xbox consoles fit for 4K gaming, that means game sizes will increase. The defining moments today, such as Red Dead Redemption 2, are as of now over 100GB. Expect that to be the standard going ahead, with download files just going to additional soar as we go further into next-gen. 

Lastly, since the Series S is computerized just, that means you can’t share games with your friends. There’s no possibility of reselling games as well or purchasing second-hand games. This is extraordinary for game publishers however less for consumers. With both Microsoft and Sony refusing to restrict PlayStation and Xbox game prices (in contrast to Steam for PC) in markets such as India, the used games market can assist you with saving cash.

X box series X and X Box series S: Games

We’ve rambled about equipment however what at last matters with any gaming gadget is the thing that games you can play. 
Microsoft has been making waves as of late for its much-discussed $7.5 billion (about Rs. 55,150 crores) acquisition of ZeniMax Media, which holds the licenses to The Elder Scrolls, Fallout, Doom, Quake, Dishonored, Prey, and Wolfenstein. Those titles will come to Xbox Game Pass soon, however whether future entries in those franchises will be Xbox exclusives will be assessed on a “case-by-case basis”, Microsoft has said. 
And that is some time away. At dispatch, there aren’t numerous Xbox Game Studios exclusives. With Halo Infinite currently deferred to 2021, we’re left with Tetris Effect: Connected, a community and serious multiplayer version of the famous riddle game; and the Gears of War spin-off Gears Tactics, which has been on Windows 10 since April. 
Xbox does have one more exclusive in Yakuza: Like a Dragon. In spite of the fact that a Japanese, Chinese and Korean PS4 version appeared back in January, Microsoft has snapped the English-language version of the next Yakuza game as a planned exclusive for the Series X and Series S. It will in the end release on PS5 at some point. 
Each and every other Xbox Series dispatch title will also be on the PS5. That includes Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War (November 13), Destiny 2: Beyond Light, Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition, Dirt 5, Fortnite, Marvel’s Avengers, and Watch Dogs Legion. 
All things considered, Microsoft does have a ton of Xbox Game Studios exclusives in the works, remembering new entries for Fable, Forza Motorsport, Psychonauts, Stalker, and the State of Decay, notwithstanding Everwild from the Sea of Thieves engineer and various other non-mainstream efforts, however most of them don’t have a release window, not to mention an exact date. 
And we can anticipate a lot more exclusives from Xbox Game Studios. Here’s the full list of the previously mentioned 23 studios currently claimed by Microsoft. Eight of the accompanying have been procured during the Xbox One period, and the eight from ZeniMax are set to authoritatively turn into a section in 2021. 
The next-gen of gaming consoles is also prompting a cost increase for games. Some publishers, such as 2K and Sony itself, have increased the bar from $60 to $70. We don’t have the foggiest idea what that exactly means for India; the roof was Rs. 3,999 yet we may see Rs. at least 4,999 at this point. Besides, Microsoft hasn’t discussed prices for next-gen Xbox Game Studios titles as yet.

Can you play your Favourite Old Games on these Consoles?

In the event that you were stressed that you would just have a handful of games on your new Xbox at dispatch, well, Microsoft will let you play thousands of more seasoned games as well. They originate from the Xbox One, Xbox 360, and even the first Xbox. You can locate the full library on the authority Xbox site. 
Be that as it may, how these games would really run, may shift. The best possible variation is a free update scheme known as “Smart Delivery”. In the event that a Xbox One game is also made for the Xbox Series family, game publishers can pick into Xbox Smart Delivery and offer a free move up to the next-gen version. FIFA 21, Marvel’s Avengers, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and Watch Dogs: Legion are ready for this. 
At that point, there’s “Improved for Xbox Series X|S” games. While this mark also covers all new titles that are purpose-worked for next-gen, it also applies to old titles that have been redesigned for Series X and Series S. That means they will support 4K HDR, up to 120fps, and faster burden times (thanks to the SSD). The total list can be found on the Xbox site. 
Presently, these benefits won’t matter similar to the new Xbox consoles. Microsoft has said that the Series S will play the Xbox One S version of in reverse viable games, not the Xbox One X version. That means you won’t advantage from 4K textures, yet you will still get “improved texture sifting, higher and more consistent casing rates, faster burden times and Auto HDR.”

Should you Upgrade From your previous X Box one?

Since we have secured each aspect of the Xbox Series X and Series S, some of you with a Xbox One as of now at home may normally be pondering: should I update? That depends on which Xbox One you have and what you are searching for. 
In the event that you need to have the option to play all new Xbox exclusives, there’s no quick need to hop on the Series X or Series S. Microsoft is inflexible that it won’t power gamers into the next age. Xbox boss Phil Spencer said as much in July, noticing that each Xbox Game Studios title in “the next couple of years” would release on both Xbox One and Xbox Series (and Windows 10). 
Presently the usable words here are “a couple of years” and “Xbox Game Studios”. Xbox Game Studios’ July occasion uncovered that the next Fable and Forza Motorsport may just be accessible on the new Xbox Series consoles. Also, outsider developers like EA and Ubisoft have no commitment to continue supporting the Xbox One. 
Of course, simply having support isn’t all that matters. As you can expect, the forthcoming Halo Infinite could look altogether different, in the event that you have a Series X, Series S, One X, One S, or One. There is simply no chance a seven-year-old console like the Xbox One could keep up in terms of execution with a very good quality one like the Series X dispatching in November. 
These differences will limit as you come towards the middle. Xbox Series S should beat Xbox One X in numerous regards, yet it can’t convey 4K gaming across the board. In spite of the fact that to be reasonable, the One X was just fit for 4K at 60fps on paper. In all actuality, most defining moments never hit that number, as the CPU was a bottleneck. 
Rise of the Tomb Raider and Middle Earth: Shadow of War dropped to 30fps at 4K, and could just oversee 60fps at 1080p. Indeed, even its in-house title, Forza Horizon 4, was the same. Gears 5 was somewhat better as it had a variable resolution with at least 1584p, while Fortnite bested at 1728p, as per Eurogamer’s Digital Foundry. 
With the Xbox Series X, Microsoft is promising that games will run at 4K 60fps, so you won’t need to manage such compromises. And with its capabilities stretching up to 8K/120fps, expect the Series X to hold its own even as we go further into next-gen. 
The Xbox Series S is an alternate story. It’s organizing execution over resolution, what with its 1440p 60fps objective. That means games running on a Xbox Series S wouldn’t have considerably more detail over the Xbox One or One S — which oversaw 1080p, though with their own compromises in the last years — however they should be a ton smoother. And you’ll have different benefits as well, such as faster burden times and beam following.
