Xbox Series X Retail Box Art Emerges, And It Gives Off QBert Vibes

The retail box art for the high-end console has arrived--here's what it looks like.


The Xbox Series X and Series S consoles will be available to preorder beginning September 22, and now the retail box art for the higher-tier console has emerged online.

Internet super sleuth Wario64 spotted the box art for the Series X. It prominently features the console's top cooling vents, along with the logos for Series X and the Xbox Velocity Architecture. The box also lets people know the console has a 1TB SSD and support for 4K/120FPS. The art for the Series S console doesn't appear to have emerged online yet.

We can't tell from the picture alone, but this is probably a very big box considering the console itself is quite large. As people have pointed out on social media, the box gives off some Q*bert vibes.

This week, we got some hands-on time with the Xbox Series X and S consoles, but only mockup dummy units that Microsoft shared. Still, they allowed us to get a feel for how large they both are in person and how they might fit into your entertainment center.

Preorders for the Xbox Series X ($500 USD) and Xbox Series S ($300 USD) begin on September 22, and you can find out all the important details in GameSpot's Xbox preorder guide.

Both consoles are scheduled to arrive on November 10. In addition to buying them outright, Microsoft is offering a payment plan known as Xbox All Access where you can get the Series S with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for $25/month or the Xbox Series X with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for $35/month. You'll end up saving some money going this route over the two years, so check out our breakdown on how Xbox All Access works.
