Xbox Series X launches Nov. 10 for $499starpdp
Microsoft’s Xbox Series X next gen console will be out Nov. 10 and cost $499 (£449/AU$749), it said Wednesday. That’s the same day as the stripped down Series S, which costs $299 ($249AU$499).
You’ll be able to preorder from Tuesday, Sept. 22. The consoles launch without Halo Infinite, a major exclusive that was recently delayed to 2021, but Ubisoft on Wednesday revealed that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will release a week early to coincide with the Series X and Series S. Other launch games include Gears Tactics, Dirt 5 and Watch Dogs Legion. You’ll also be able to play thousands of games from the original Xbox, the Xbox 360 and the current Xbox One generations.

If a single $499 purchase isn’t an option, the Series X and Series S will also be available through monthly payments as part of the Xbox All Access program in 12 countries. The Series X will cost $35 per month while the cheaper will be $25 per month. Both provide two years of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which has been expanded to include an EA Play membership.
With the next gen Xbox consoles revealed, the ball is firmly in Sony’s court — it has yet to reveal a release date or price for the PS5.
