On the part of the Redmond giant, we already know everything about the next generation of consoles, so there is nothing left to do but wait for a response from Sony and PlayStation 5.
Literally yesterday, Microsoft, somewhat forced by the situation and more specifically by very precise leaks, decided to reveal a weaker version of its next-generation console. Xbox Series S, because that’s what we’re talking about, is 60% smaller than its bigger brother, will have 3 times less processing power, we won’t find a drive in it, but its price is much lower and is 1349 PLN in Poland. The aforementioned unofficial reports also spoke about Xbox Series X, indicating a price of 499 USD, but only today we lived to see official confirmation from the giant from Redmond, so we’re back with an update.
Thanks to Xbox Poland we found out that in Poland this amount will translate into 2249 PLN, and the premiere of the new console will be held together with the S variant, or November 10. To our surprise, Microsoft informed us that we don’t have to spend the whole amount at once and we can decide to take advantage of the Xbox All Access program. This means paying off the console for two years, paying monthly from 99 PLN, depending on the chosen version of Xbox, just like in the case of contracts with mobile networks (we’re still waiting for the price of a more expensive console) – in Poland, the Media Expert store will be responsible for the implementation of this form of payment.
As we mentioned yesterday, the combined forces of Microsoft and Electronic Arts A within the Xbox Game Pass service will also be waiting for the players – thanks to this from this year’s holidays service from EA will be available completely free of charge for all subscribers of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Xbox Game Pass for PC. It’s worth noting here that more than 60 of the publisher’s games are available through EA Play, including big hits like FIFA 20 and Titanfall 2, which will join the 100 from Xbox. As for the list of launch titles for the new Xboxes (and the older ones, as Microsoft has promised to support them for 2 more years after the release of the new ones, so Xbox One owners won’t be disadvantaged), it looks roughly like this: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Gears Tactics, The Falconeer, Yakuza: Like a Dragon and Tetris Effect: Connected, and we can’t forget about games debuting a while before consoles like Dirt 5, Watch Dogs: Legion, Fortnite, NBA 2K21, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Control, Doom Eternal and Marvel’s Avengers or moments later, like Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and one of this year’s most anticipated releases, Cyberpunk 2077 from CD Projekt RED.
