Xbox Series X Looks Beefy Next To The Xbox One X

Microsoft's Xbox Series X drops this holiday season with a ton of new technology and features.


Microsoft has dropped a ton of information about its upcoming next-generation console, the Xbox Series X. We've learned a lot about its impressive specifications, and the proprietary card necessary for additional storage space. But we've also gotten a glimpse at just how huge the Series X is compared to Microsoft's current system on the market, the Xbox One X. And the difference is truly staggering.

The Xbox Series X comes in at 5.9 inches wide, 5.9 inches deep, and 11.8 inches tall. The Xbox One X stands at 2.4 inches wide, 9.4 inches deep, and 11.8 inches tall. While both systems are at the same height, the Series X is thicker than the One X. It's expressly clear by the images and information available that Microsoft's next-gen console isn't something to hide under a TV or in the entertainment center.

Microsoft's Xbox Series X is slated to hit store shelves this holiday season, with 343 Industries' Halo Infinite releasing as a day-one launch title. A specific release date and price for the next-gen system has yet to be provided--rumors of a Thanksgiving release date briefly made the rounds after an Xbox product page mistakenly listed the date, but Geoff Keighley and Xbox officials quickly rejected the claim. For more information, we've compiled a list of everything else we know about the console thus far.
