The next generation of Xbox is here, just in time for the 2020 holiday season. Microsoft released two models on Nov. 10: the flagship, more powerful Xbox Series X and a smaller, cheaper Xbox Series S.
The Xbox Series X is more than twice as powerful as the Xbox One X, with up to 8K resolution, 120 fps frame rates, and real-time ray tracing. The Xbox Series S is a less powerful model without a disc drive, and Microsoft says it’s the smallest Xbox ever.
Below, we break down everything we know about how, when, and where to buy a new Xbox. (But keep in mind many retailers may be sold out of the new Xbox, with stock expected to come in throughout the holiday and Black Friday shopping season.)
