It seems like a lifetime ago when Microsoft dropped jaws all over the gaming world back in December 2019 when the Xbox Series X console was revealed when no one, and I mean NO ONE saw it coming. Since that surprise it has been a long 11 months in many way for the world and everyone which due to COVID saw all physical gaming events cancelled and in the year of next generation consoles launching, online only events and a very long wait to learn how much it would cost and when they would become available. Well Xbox fans no longer have to wait…almost, as the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles have launched globablly:
There is always something exciting when a new console launches and today Xbox has two, the premium Series X and affordable all digital Series S. Some retailers have reported more stock of both here in the UK will be available but you will need to be quick.
In a year of misery and difficult times for many people, not everyone is able to jump into the next generation of Xbox but they have made sure to not leave anyone behind where possible. Today will also see EA Play come to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate with Jedi Fallen Order joining the library as well today. Various launch events will be taking place online to celebrate launch day so make sure you check out the official social media for Xbox to learn more.
This is perhaps the biggest leap in console gaming in my lifetime, I hope everyone waiting for their new console gets that knock on the door early and if you are heading out to collect yours please be safe, take care and get home safely.
