Microsoft Reveals Next-Gen Console, Xbox Series X, at The Game Awards


As revealed during tonight's Game Awards show, the continuing story of Senua will be titled Senua Saga: Hellblade 2, and it'll be making its way to Microsoft's next console - the awkwardly monikered Xbox Series X - at some now unconfirmed future point.

The upcoming console will be called Xbox Series X, and features an upright design instead of lying flat as we've seen in past Xbox consoles. We also designed Xbox Series X to support both vertical and horizontal orientation. Instead, it is built more like a PC.

Xbox Series X is its name, and it looks like a tall, black box with a small slit where discs will go. It also signifies our belief that a gaming console should be for just that - gaming. It will also include a share button to simplify posting screenshots and clips online. Our fastest and most powerful Xbox will set a new bar for performance, speed and compatibility.

Ninja Theory has offered a first tease of the follow-up to its critically acclaimed action-adventure Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice.

The platform previously known as Project Scarlett was unveiled at The Game Awards in Los Angeles on Thursday, where Xbox head Phil Spencer claimed that all 15 of Xbox's internal studios are now working on games for the platform.

Games today deliver unbelievable visuals and tell an array of different and deep stories. It all started like a game announcement, and we here at TechRadar definitely weren't expecting it to turn into a new hardware announcement. Its Xbox One and successive iterations of the console weren't commercially successful.

New 12-month contracts for goalkeeper McGregor, 37, and 34-year-old midfielder Davis have also been agreed, according to Gerrard. Rangers are aiming to bounce back quickly from the heartbreak of losing to 10-man Celtic in Gerrard's first final as a manager.


From a technical standpoint, this will manifest as world-class visuals in 4K resolution at 60 frames per second, with possibility of up to 120 frames per second, including support for Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), and 8K capability.

The new system's public debut puts Microsoft slightly ahead of the pack in the race to begin the ninth generation of video game consoles. "Where you are in the center of your gaming experience". In terms of power, it's "four times the processing power of Xbox One X".

The next Xbox doesn't look like a traditional console.

One of the things we're most proud of with Xbox Series X is the promise we're delivering to our fans who have and continue to invest with Xbox.

If you're wondering about the curious form factor of the Xbox Series X, Microsoft says it will function vertically and horizontally. Like previous Xbox console, the Xbox Series X will be backwards compatible.

Microsoft has been gradually building the hype around its next Xbox console.
