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.

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.

Bethesda has confirmed that the current-gen update for Fallout 4 will finally release on April 25.

That's good timing, as a Fallout TV show just released on Amazon Prime this month to positive buzz. Fallout 4 came out for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox One in 2015, and this definitely looks like it will be the most substantial update the game has received since its last expansion was released.

Xbox’s anticipated mid-generation console refresh might be right around the corner. Over the past few weeks, there have been some rumblings that an all-white Xbox Series X may be coming this year. That rumor kicked into second gear when Exputer posted photos it says it received of the device. The leaked images show a standard Xbox Series X with a white casing. The design is about the same, but there’s one key difference: It doesn’t have a disk drive. If the rumors are proven true, that’ll be the system’s selling point, potentially putting it at a lower price point than the current Series X.

Visions of Mana paints a promising picture of the RPG series’ return
Red-haired girl with horns and dragon wing in Visions of Mana

The vibrant settings and character designs in Visions of Mana instantly alerted me that I'd be knee-deep into fantasy, riding on the back of a giant black wolf into the grassy plains of Fallow Steppe. A lush landscape welcomed me as I chatted with my teammates on top of my mount and tussled with little woodland monsters.

I had this experience at this year's PAX East, where I went hands-on with a demo of the upcoming RPG. I never played previous Mana games, but I have enough experience with RPGs and real-time combat to name it one of the most gorgeous, action-packed games I played at the show. The shiny open-world and slick combat I experienced point to a strong comeback for the Mana series coming later this summer.
