Xbox Series X and Series S could launch on November 10 for $299 and $499

Microsoft’s pair of next-generation gaming consoles, the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S may finally go on sale on November 10, reports Windows Central. As per details shared by multiple reports over the past few hours, the Xbox Series X will likely retail for $499, while the entry-level Xbox Series S could be priced at $299 in the United States. Although the latter’s price is identical to its predecessor, the Xbox One S, the Xbox Series X, as earlier rumors hinted, costs $100 than its last-gen counterpart, the Xbox One X.

At launch, Windows Central adds, Microsoft will offer monthly Xbox All Access financing options as well that gets you a console and access to all Xbox series such as online multiplayer and Game Pass subscription. Under this plan, the Xbox Series X and the Xbox Series S could set you back for $35 and $25 per month.

Microsoft last month confirmed a November release for its upcoming console. “There will be thousands of games to play, spanning four generations, when Xbox Series X launches globally this November and over 100 optimized for Xbox Series X titles, built to take full advantage of our most powerful console, are planned for this year,” wrote Xbox’s Will Tuttle in a blog post.

We’ve reached out to Microsoft for a confirmation and we’ll update the story when we hear back.

Xbox Series S leak

We also possibly have our first look at the more affordable Xbox Series S console courtesy of Thurrott, According to a leaked promotional clip, the Xbox Series S will inherit design elements from its predecessor, the Xbox One S, and feature a slim white exterior instead of the Xbox Series X’s bulky and towering look. The image suggests the Xbox Series S won’t come equipped with a traditional disc drive probably as a cost-cutting measure and carry a speaker-like circular vent up top.

Microsoft has actively teased its next-gen higher end console, the Xbox Series X over the past year, and revealed a handful of its key hardware specifications. It will offer 12 teraflops of GPU performance and support 4K gaming at up to 120 frames per second. There will be 1TB of ultra-fast SSD storage and 16GB GDDR6 memory. The Xbox Series S, on the other hand, has largely been kept under the wraps so far and it remains unclear how much of a performance hit it will take to save $200.

Nintendo's Wii U is notorious for how hard it flopped and for providing the Switch with some of its best ports, but that doesn't mean it didn't have worthwhile games that are still exclusive to it. While many Wii U games have escaped to other platforms and Game Boy Advance games are now coming to Nintendo Switch, some experiences are uniquely suited to the Wii U GamePad or aren't able to make the jump elsewhere due to other outside factors.

As such, when the Wii U and 3DS eShops shut down on March 27, there are some unique Wii U games that will become significantly more expensive and tougher, if not outright impossible, to play. If you're one of the 13.5 million people who actually have a Wii U and are wondering what to pick up before the eShop closes, we recommend these stranded games.
