This obviously confirms the final design for the Series X packaging as well. Noticeably the box for the Series X is also larger than the packaging for the smallest ever Xbox.

I love how the Series X box looks. Just 1 more week until preorders.
What games are you getting with it day one?
I'm thinking Gears Tactics, the upgrade to Gears 5 (still haven't played it yet so holding off) and possibly Assassins Creed.
No Cyberpunk or Medium?
With my current backlog, no. I'm thinking I'll get Cyberpunk over Christmas holidays while I'm off work.
Shaggy Buying a new hardware for crossgen titles? Line up is really weak.
@bouzebbal Gears Tactics, Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Yakuza: Like a Dragon. Good luck getting a PS5 at launch
For me: Gears Tactics Assassin's Creed Valhalla Grounded (Have yet to play this) As soon as they release in 2020: The Medium Call of The Sea Later than that: Fable Halo Infinite State of Decay 3 Avowed Everwild
So no fans of the game Scorn? Is it still a launch game?
@Bouzebbal What does it matter if a game is cross gen? If a game is good and fun to play shouldn't that be all that matters? Also, let's not forget the biggest selling game this generation is itself a cross gen game, I mean GTA5 is still selling massive numbers.
"If a game is good and fun to play shouldn't that be all that matters?" That literally argues against new hardware if all it does is improve the look of a title.
@Morganfell Using your logic there is no need to buy new graphics cards either, I mean all they do is improve the look of games.
"Using your logic there is no need to buy new graphics cards either, I mean all they do is improve the look of games." I am not sure what that has to do with the price of tea in China. I have not been screaming about new graphics cards and the idea they are a must buy. Instead I have remarked that hardware companies need to do something else besides throw horsepower at the next generation equation. If all you are doing is increasing resolution, frame rate, and adding some effects like RT that does not in my book warrant the tag "next generation". There has to be a way to step sideways, think in a multilateral fashion as to how they can change the gaming paradigm to offer a wholly new experience. It is why I applaud Sony for the new controller and their SSD and I/O technology to change the manner in which we experience a game world. Yes to some degree the way a game looks is without doubt a part of the experience but the resolution of a title usually isn't what stays with us months and even years later.
It's his money, he can buy what he wants.
Cyberpunk and valhalla will be the games that I want to play no matter wish console I buy but in my case will be firs the SX.
Get game pass and you will have plenty of games . Im getting a RTX 3080 though lol.
Actually... It's an Xbox one series x Xbox box. 😁
only reason i'm excited for the xbox series release is because assassins creed will release on pc then. I'll have to wait for reviews and gameplay videos before i make a purchase on AC though. edit: It just occurred to me while playing ni no kuni 2 that AC Valhalla is alot like it. Basically you build a kingdom and are the ruler. check. You go on raids. (skirmishes in ni no kuni). Check. It's a rpg. Check. Action combat. Check. Basically ni no kuni 2 is the anime version of AC Valhalla.
ur excited for the new xbox because a game will be on PC? im confused.
If xbox wasn't releasing ac wouldn't release so early
I get paid over $90 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I'd be able to do it but my best friend earns over 10k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless. Heres what I've been doing, HERE► https://bit.ly/2zPpkEQ
***If xbox wasn't releasing ac wouldn't release so early*** AC Valhalla has been a Holiday 2020 release title since it was announced. It's a cross generation game, so it wouldn't be held back by there being no new gen hardware. And it would go to PC regardless.
I still have my PS2 blue box. All other Xbox and PS boxes are gone except this gen's.
I still just cant get over how small these machines are (compared to the controllers). I am still a bit concerned that some of my longer gaming sessions would ramp those internal temps pretty quick, but I guess tbd
I gotta give them credit....new videos every 2 days and they find ways to release ZERO game footage 🤣
the videos and pictures are really good though - they seriously do a good job with it, I've been criticizing them on changing very little with the controller, but when you go to their web site and look at the product page, the close up detailed pictures of that controller look great and enticing. their marketing is top notch
agreed .....more hardware choices than actual games just like this gen.
It's interesting because the same fans who claimed that the Series X would DESTROY the PS5 because of the extra 1.7 TF, seem to also believe that the Series S will look just as good with 4 TF 🤷♂️
The reason for this is to drown out ps5 news which will explode on the Web tomorrow. I predict more articles possible controller for series xs has textured grip it will be anything even if its menial ie internal packaging is carbon neutral just flood the airwaves with anything
series x boxing looks great, series s looks like they're selling speakers with a controller xD
XSS is really nice and slick. If it could at least push 4K from last gen XOX games (and 1440p on next gen), that would be really great machine.
The box for the Xbox Sex is bigger then the box of the Xbox Series S.... Unbelievable!!
So the box for the SeX is a lot bigger than the box for the S?? Unbelievable!!! (Big big big big facepalm) 🙄🙄
Jeez, this really is scraping the barrel now. Send empty carcasses to journalists for preview purposes and now trying to hype the packaging. Ordinarily showing the box would be a interesting aside, now its a big story; give gamers something to really talk about and show some gameplay for Pete's sake. I wouldn't ordinarily comment on stuff like this, but I absolute hate how full of shite Aaron Greenberg is.
Remember when Sony showed the PS5 logo and you Sony fans went crazy?
Not really, but even if some did get carried away, that was months ago, not 2 months out from launch. I personally wouldn't absolve Sony from behaving in a daft manner with all the cloak and dagger silliness either, but we have at least seen decent chunks of gameplay shown on PS5 more recently.
Have we though? Have you actually seen a real PS5 unit playing an actual game? And if you don't remember how many people lost their shit over a logo, go back and look.
Amusing, the Xbox Box, how exciting. They really don't have any games to show do they.
This has been the weirdest next-gen console reveal ever. Like we wait till 2 months before launch to see a price and to possibly get pre-orders and now they’re tweeting the packaging box... please let’s go back to the way consoles were revealed when the generation after next happens.
2020 never ceases to amaze.
You mean show some gameplay? If the games were ready, they would have shown them by now. Why anyone would preorder and xbox at this point is beyond me.
Playing videogames is a waste of time.
Some people make a very good living that way. Times are strange.
Taking part in the rat race and working your fingers to the bone is a waste of time. Doing something love is never a waste of time. You sound like a boomer.
I will try to snag one Series X at Black Friday, if I fail, then the full price it is.
You will have no problem getting a Series X on Black Friday. I can promise you that
hahahaha, I hope so.
Greenberg saves the day again with some hot Series S/X packaging!
So how long will M$ keep selling the S? They can't even sell the Xbox brand correct and now this sh!t??
Looks Great! Day 1 purchase for me: XSX, no need for extra controller..already have 3. The Ascent Doom Eternal: DLC, Bethesda said they would free upgrade for XSX and PS5. Cyberpunk Medium AC: Valhalla ...only because I just finished watching the T.V series Vikings and just Finished Hellblade. I'm on Viking kick lol. Lastly, all my Gamepass games, including ones with enhancements! Tomorrow, I will make my PS5 list lol.
well at least they got box ok.
Yeah I think I'll be taking advantage of the Xbox Series Advantage program. $34/month for two years ...zero interest....walk out with a Series X and 2 more years of Gamepass. Save about $40 over lifetime of the contract vs buying it and gamepass straight up.
Packaging looks nice! Getting Series X for home and Series S for travel. Games for launch that im getting: Cyberpunk The Medium Assassin's Creed Valhalla The Ascent Yakuza: Like a Dragon.
XBOX SERIES X BOX not to be confused with XBOX ONE X BOX...... c'mon these names are ridiculous!
I LOVE the design.
They're all in on the vents. MS has learned from previous mistakes at least, in terms of cooling.
Doesn't look very special to me. Though sometimes it's the unpacking of the box that is satisfying.
I am curious to see if the Xbox Series S will sell well at all or be a bust within a yr. Worse yet if the rumored price ($350-$400) for the PS5 digital is true given the fact its a more powerful option.
Those are some nice looking Xbox Series S and X Xbox boxes.
