It’s amazing that this new Xbox Series X is getting to be backward compatibility.

Microsoft mentioned in their blog that “Our commitment to compatibility means existing Xbox One games, including backward compatible Xbox 360 and original Xbox games, look and play better than ever before. Your Xbox One gaming accessories also come to the fore with you.”

Apart from this, there’s also one fantastic feature named as Smart Delivery feature. Does one know what Smart Delivery is? It’s maybe a cross-buy scheme with which you’ll buy a game for only on one occasion and luxuriate in it to the fullest.

To elaborate it slightly more, with the Smart Delivery feature, the games you buy for your Xbox One are often upgraded for free of charge for your Xbox Series X.

Xbox Series X Controllers

The new Xbox controller, which is wireless, will be launched at the same time when the Xbox Series X console will be seen in the market. This new controller has a share button and a new D-Pad, which was also present on the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 1 and 2.

However, this new D-Pad button has a slightly deeper disc as well as also has fine-tuned angles. Bluetooth low energy connectivity option will be also spot on this new controller, which offers you a connectivity option that is easily connected with more devices, PCs, Androids, and ios.

There is also a charging point for the controller because there are no backup batteries. This charging point will be a USB-C type port.

Windows Mode

Similar to other Xbox, this Microsoft Xbox will also offer a Windows mode, but yet this news is considered in the rumor section. If it is true, this mode will allow access to other game launches and stores through this new Microsoft Xbox.

Ports

If we are talking about ports in Xbox, certainly, this new Xbox console will outweigh other Xbox because it will feature two HDMI ports, two USB-C ports, and a S/PDIF port. We know that CES 202 gave us a sneak peek of the much-awaited Series X. But later, it turned out that it was just a render.

From the insider information, we got the truth about the Xbox Series X port that it will include two USB – A ports, a single HDMI port, optical audio, and the usual power port. All these features will rock in the market.

Xbox Series X VR

Microsoft’s first priority is virtual reality. However, when we are talking about their PC, the Windows mixed reality initiative wasn’t much successful as expected. It had featured a huge variety of weightless VR headsets and offered an enormous and expensive library of games.

There have been talks about that Microsoft is working on a VR headset, motion controllers, a stylus, and a fully-fledged boundary mat that can turn your living room into a digital playground. It will be a great experience to experience that VR headset.

Memory Card

We are using memory cards since our childhood to increase the space of our phones or other access devices. Microsoft wants to back on the memory card as they announced that their Xbox Series X Expansion Card, which will provide additional game storage at peak speed and performance by replicating the console’s internal custom SSD experience.

You can insert this 1TB card into the console via the dedicated port, which is also known as the storage expansion port.

Xbox Series X Games

Halo Infinite, the much-anticipated game, will launch in 2021. Microsoft studio Ninja Theory at the Games Awards 2019 revealed Senua Saga’s Hellblade II. Hellblade II is that the sequel of 1 of the foremost loved psychological action games of 2016.

Xbox also promised that their exclusives available that are available on Series X could even be played on the Xbox One and PC. We all so know that the Series X will support all existing Xbox One games, including Xbox and Xbox 360 titles.

Some titles that you’ll be ready to enjoy together with your Xbox Series X are going to be Square Enix’s Outriders, Ubisoft titles Watch Dogs Legion, Gods, and Monsters, Rainbow Six Quarantine, The Elder Scrolls VI, Starfield, and Grand Theft Auto 6.

Overall, Microsoft launches its product with a great treasure for gamers.

Conclusion

In the end, I would like to say that pray not to delay this amazing Xbox because after reading this, you will be pretty excited about it. This upcoming Xbox will definitely change the gaming world with its exclusive features.

However, it will be stiff competition for Sony and Microsoft to attract an enormous audience towards them because I read that Sony will also launch its PS5 at the same time. Yet, none of them declared the official date for the launch, but it will be expected that they will launch their product at the end of the year.

I think that it will be the best Christmas gift from Microsoft to its fans and gamers. Till the next declaration from Microsoft, we have to quench our gaming thirst with the old Xbox One.
