In just two weeks’ time, gamers everywhere will be getting their hands on the latest consoles from the house of Microsoft. That’s right, the Xbox Series X and Series S are landing this coming 10 November, and ahead of the big launch, it’s time to take a look at what you will be getting with your purchase.
Thanks to our good friends over at Microsoft, Geek Culture had the opportunity to get our excited hands on both the Xbox Series X and Series S consoles ahead of launch. Suffice to say, we are ready for next-gen gaming to arrive now.
From all the accessories to the sleek, new consoles themselves, we unboxed them all for your viewing pleasure. This way, you will know exactly what to expect come 10 November.
As a bonus, we even have the Singapore-Exclusive Xbox x Royale Gaming Chair. This limited run production cannot be purchased and will only be given to a few lucky Xbox pre-order customers in November.
With the Xbox Series X and Series expected to run games at 120FPS and up to 4K resolution (at least, on the Series X), the storage space will be at a premium.
For those hoping to alleviate any potential issues, we also utilised the Storage Expansion slot on both consoles with the Seagate Storage Expansion Card. It was extremely simple, just plug and play, and you have yourself an additional 1TB of storage.
Best of all, it is all running at the same blazing speeds as you would expect from the internal SSD powering both Series X and S. In Singapore, the Seagate Storage Expansion Card (1TB) will be available exclusively on Shopee for S$330 in November. It is also available on Amazon for US$219.99 for folks outside of Singapore.
With just a few weeks to go, the dawn of next-gen gaming is upon us. The Xbox Series X and Series S are just the beginning.
