The Xbox Series X is Microsoft's flagship console and the machine going toe-to-toe with Sony's PS5. It features 12 teraflops of graphics power, 16GB of RAM, a 1TB SSD and a Blu-ray drive. This stylish black box can run games at 4K resolution at 60 frames per second without breaking a sweat. In our Xbox Series X review we said the Editor's Choice console represents the pinnacle of Microsoft's gaming efforts.
So, why should you pick up an Xbox Series X? In our Xbox Series X review, we called this console the "pinnacle of Microsoft's gaming efforts." We also praised it for its high-powered specs, fast loading times, and cool design.
Packing a fast SSD, 4K resolution, and 60fps gaming, the Xbox Series X undercuts an equivalent gaming PC and has a huge library of titles. The best Xbox Series X games include triple-A hits like Halo Infinite, Forza Horizon 5 and the majorly anticipated Starfield. Backwards compatibility is another highlight, and you can play a ton of classic titles going all the way back to the original Xbox.
Plus, don't forget about Xbox Game Pass — it's known as the best subscription service in gaming for good reason. You get access to a suite of games on your Xbox Series X for a low monthly fee starting at $9.99/month.
