The new Xbox console is here, but is the so-called "fastest, most powerful Xbox ever" worth buying?
|Xbox Series X|
Bold yet understated design
Fast loading and Quick Resume
4K, ray-tracing, VRR, and 120Hz support
Xbox Game Pass is incredible value
Comprehensive backward compatibility
No new exclusives at launch
Lacks any real innovation
Controller requires AA batteries
The Xbox Series X is a fantastic gaming machine that sadly lacks new exclusive games to showcase the hardware at its best. However, it lays the foundations for a resurgent Xbox brand, and when paired with Xbox Game Pass the Series X represents arguably the best balance of raw power and value for money of any console to date.
