Face Off: Xbox Rolls Out Two New Consoles

By: Jamel Rojas

The Xbox console has been out for years, and it’s always outperformed the PlayStation. 

First came the Xbox, then the Xbox 360, and now the Xbox One. But this year Xbox and Microsoft will be releasing their new consoles: the Series X and Series S.

The Xbox Series X and S will be released November 10, just in time for holiday shopping. The X will cost $500 and the S $300. 

The Series X will have backward compatibility, meaning it will be able to play games from the very first Xbox console. It will have the standard 60 frames per second (fps), but for some games like Rainbow Six Siege it will have 120 fps and it will also support 4k game play. It will also have 12 teraflops processing power. Also, Xbox Live will be free.

The Series S is a cheaper version of the Series X. It is smaller, but it won’t have the option to use cd’s and wont have graphics like the Series X.  The S will not have 4k gaming resolution, but it will have 1440p. It will only have disc-free games and 4 teraflops processing power.

The main difference between the Playstation and Xbox is the exclusives. For example, Playstation has Spiderman and Xbox has Halo. 

But there are more differences, too. The Xbox will be able to play all Xbox games throughout the years, where the PS5 will be able to play almost all PS4 games. The PS5 will have a 10.3 teraflop where the xbox will have 12. The PS5 has an 8-core 3.5 GHz AMD Zen 2 cpu (central processing unit) where the Xbox has an 8-core 3.8 GHz AMD Zen 2 cpu. Xbox will also have more storage with a 1 TB custom NVMe SSD where the Playstation only has 825 GB customSSD.
