Microsoft Xbox head Phil Spencer said that this game was built to take advantage of the system’s power. Plus Spencer pointed out that the company’s 15 first-party studios are working on a notable lineup of exclusive games. And at the Game Awards show, Spencer said that the Series X is its fastest and most powerful Xbox. Plus it will set a new bar for performance and speed.

The Xbox Series X will be four times more powerful than its predecessor Xbox One X. Plus the Xbox Series X will also launch with a new ‘Halo Infinite’ game. And it will have double the GPU power of the Xbox One X. This gives the Xbox Series X about 12 teraflops of graphical performance. Plus the Xbox Series X will support backward compatibility with games made for Xbox One, Xbox 360, and the original Xbox 360.

When the Xbox Series X is released, it will be competing against the upcoming Sony PlayStation 5 — which is also launching in the holiday season 2020. The Xbox Series X comes with a new Bluetooth-enabled controller, which has a rechargeable battery. One a single charge, the controller supports up to 40 hours. The controller sells separately for $179.99, but the price of the Xbox Series X is not yet known. But there is speculation that it will be priced at $499.99.
