REDMOND, Wash. – Microsoft has announced and revealed the name and design concept for the upcoming Xbox Series X, and it got a lot of people confused about the new gaming console.
During the Game Awards 2019, Microsoft shed more light on the new Xbox console, which they named the Xbox Series X, which fans have a lot to say. The name and the design of the upcoming Xbox console have been a source of ridicule for both fans and non-fans online.
On the other hand, the comments from the executive VP of gaming at Microsoft, Phil Spencer, suggest that there will be several variations of the Xbox Series X.
Previously, Spencer said during an interview that the new name for the upcoming Xbox console will largely reflect its purpose, but when the name was revealed, a lot of people were and still are confused about what the “Series X” name means.
Fortunately, Spencer has spoken recently to GameSpot to help clear up some of the details about the design concept of the new Xbox. The problem, however, his recent talk hasn’t entirely cleared up the confusion of Xbox fans about the new name of the console, although, during his talk, he was able to elaborate some things about the upcoming console.
The “Series X” name, which confused a lot of people and sounds quite familiar with the previous Xbox One X, doesn’t describe what the console does. Instead, the name identifies the series of machines that will be under the entire line.
Based on Spencer’s comments, Microsoft is more likely going to produce numerous versions for their new Series X line.
Some Xbox fanatics concluded that there might be several hardware revisions for the new console, something that could change how games will look like and how well they are going to run, especially following the “enhanced modes” that is present in the Xbox One X consoles.
With the supposed many versions of the Xbox Series X, it will largely affect the many customers of video games depending on their preference or what version of the Series X they want to get. In short, consumers will have more options in getting the console that best suits them. There might be a version for their specific needs like those on a budget or for those looking for a quieter version of the console for a house with a baby in it.
But, with the supposed different versions of the upcoming Xbox Series X console, the major hurdle for Microsoft is staying clever to stave off any financial difficulty head-on. If they want to release multiple versions, Microsoft has to make sure that each version of the console is sold at the best price for profit. It can be a challenge unless Microsoft decides to adopt the same route for PCs and have the new Xbox consoled manufactured by different third-party companies.
Overall, whatever the Microsoft plans about the new Xbox Series X, the new generation of video game consoles are sure to be an interesting one. And with the possibility that gaming will start going off-consoles altogether, this upcoming Xbox Series X might be the last generation of consoles.
