Design


Microsoft’s Xbox series x is a giant black box with a basic design. It looks like a PC Cabinet with a flat surface with no fins or curves. It has an all matte black finish and stands vertically. However, it comes with rubber feet to align it horizontally according to your convenience but it feels a bit off when placed horizontally.

The sole reason for the square vertical design of Xbox series x is that it is power hungry and a lot of thermal emissions to deal with. To allow the hot air to escape, there is a wide grille on top of the unit with a subtle green light which might not be that visible in the dark. The front of the box has a slot-loading UHD Blu-Ray drive and the power button lights up on use but is not at all flashy.

The sides of the series X do not have anything worth noticing but the back has all the main connections including the Ethernet, slot for storage expansion, and USB-Type-A.

Now coming to the controller of series X, it is simply a delight to look at. The texture of the controller is such that it would not make your hands slip when you sweat. The new controller comes with a share button in the middle that allows you to record videos and take screenshots by simply pressing the button. This controller can be charged with a type-C charger and the D-pad in this controller is now a full circle with a raised cross which makes your gaming experience easier.

Features


Microsoft has tried to maintain an Xbox ecosystem by providing a subscription service known as the Xbox game pass that allows you to be on Xbox with your PC or use the game pass ultimate for game streaming from your Android.

While the PS5 comes with backward compatibility for only the PS4 games, Xbox series X offers backward compatibility for every era of Xbox which makes it stand out from the rest of the gaming consoles.

The biggest and the most noticeable hardware change in series S is that it now comes with an SSD that allows games to load faster and reach the main screen in less than 30 seconds. The inclusion of SSD has proved to be so beneficial that you can now pick up your game from right where you left off even after a full shutdown but the only downfall is that this feature does not work in most places.

The new controller is still called the Xbox wireless controller since it has not been changed much except that it is now more streamlined and less angular. The improved texture of the controller makes your hold your grip even in humid conditions and the D-pad now is more audible and easily clickable.

Dolby's Vision and Dolby Atmos are the two new software features supported by Microsoft’s Xbox series X. Although you need compatible hardware to use them the quality that it offers is beyond exceptional.

Final Opinion


To make the best of your Xbox Series X experience you need to have a TV that supports Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos speakers. If you want to go in for a next-gen console then series X is the right pick for you. The new Xbox series X might look like a beast, but it comes with a lot of beauty inside. Your weekend gameplay with your mates is now sorted as the new games in Xbox series X perform better than ever and gives you a real-time experience to cherish. On top of it, with the Xbox game pass, you can get tons of new games at no additional cost.
