We Have The Xbox Series X - Full Previews Coming Soon

Ahead of the November launch for the Xbox Series X, Microsoft sent us a fully functioning version of the console itself.


Update: An embargo has lifted and we've been able to share our hands-on experience with Xbox Series X--or at least some components of it. The takeaway is that Xbox Series X load times are much improved over existing Xbox One hardware, while Quick Resume is a game-changer.

Next gen is here. We have the Xbox Series X in hand, a real, fully functioning console (though it is technically a non-final build of the system). Microsoft sent us the hardware ahead of the Xbox Series X launch date of November 10, so we can get hands-on experience with what next-gen gaming offers in advance.

We have preview coverage lined up such as impressions, technical breakdowns, and discussions of the overall gaming experience, but that'll be coming in the near future. That's all we can share for now, but we have a ton of current coverage of Microsoft's next-gen consoles that you can check in the meantime.

If you're looking for analysis on technical specs, be sure to read our comparison of the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, and if you want to get a closer look at how the two systems stack against other console, check out our size comparison with the official Xbox Series mockups. Microsoft also made a big splash this week by acquiring Bethesda and all the game studios under the prominent publisher, so you can read up on what that means for the future of gaming. If you're still looking to get one yourself, consult our Xbox Series X pre-order guide for help. You can also catch up with all our Xbox-related stories below.
