The ‘old’ consoles will undoubtedly become obsolete in the future, but for the time being, you don’t need to acquire the newest console to play the newest games. On the plus side, a sizable selection of games are already playable on the new devices, and both manufacturers assert that their new powerful models make those games look and perform better than ever while also serving as all-purpose entertainment centers. also you will learn our article on Xbox Series X review.


The Series X really departs from the norm. If you own an Xbox One, everything appears to be the same, at least in terms of software. The controller, media capabilities, and menu structure are all very similar to what you’re used to. You could even be worried that upgrading was a costly mistake. Fortunately, you would be mistaken. If you go a little deeper and look behind the hood, the situation changes completely. This is a powerful gaming console with a user interface that is so comfortable to use since it is tried and true. Xbox not only follows the maxim “don’t change what isn’t broken,” but actually enjoys it. Unfortunately, it doesn’t apply to the design, which still hasn’t won us over. The Xbox Series X can be used as a compact tower PC or lay flat, which seems to be the main goal. It is largely bland and might blend into an AV cabinet’s background because it is black. But that also implies that it isn’t really attractive enough to be a monument to gaming, nor is it really small enough to remain out of the way. The Series X is big and heavy, and we are concerned because the crucial heat grille is located on top while the device is vertical. We worry if turning it on its side may cause problems in the future because heat rises. Basically, regardless of orientation, make sure there is lots of open space surrounding it.

Xbox Series X review: Controller

In the hand, the Xbox Series X Wireless Controller feels both comfortable and slightly odd. Its increased tactile textures and optimized geometry, when compared to the Xbox One Controller, result in a more ergonomic and enjoyable playing experience. The Xbox Series X controller doesn’t appear to be a particularly significant improvement over its predecessor from the outside. It maintains the conventional button and trigger configuration and has a similar design. But if you look more closely, you start to see the small adjustments Microsoft has made. The exterior of the gamepad now has a matte finish that closely resembles the style of the console. The black controller that comes with the console soon accumulates apparent scuffs and scrapes, and given the amount of hand-on time controllers are subjected to, you may find it difficult to maintain yours looking in peak condition for years to come. However, there are other color options available (you’ll need to purchase these individually), some of which may be less prone to scuffs, such as Electric Volt, DayStrike Camo, and Pulse Red. But aside from that tiny complaint, we discovered that the Xbox Series X controller, in terms of both appearance and feel, is comparable to a more expensive controller. Triggers, grips, and bumpers on the updated pad now have a tactile texture, which we found to increase the controller’s sense of security in our hands.


The Xbox One interface experienced so many changes that it frequently appeared to be in a state of beta all the time. It has undergone extensive scrutiny and revision over the years, and as a consequence, Xbox Series X debuts with what is perhaps the greatest Xbox dashboard to date. It is adaptable and quick, built to enable you easily move around busy regions of the dashboard and push components that slow you down out of the way. you can read our article on Xbox Series X review. Although the user interface may visually resemble what is currently offered on the Xbox One, its speed and responsiveness render it virtually unrecognizable. Less than 20 seconds are needed for the console to transition from a complete shutdown to the dashboard, and even less time if the Instant On startup mode is enabled. As smoothly as the Fluent Design will allow, switching between the various elements of the UI and Guide while you’re on the dashboard. The dashboard may be customized to add specialized blocks for your top entertainment apps and games, or it can be used to pin various Xbox Live features to the home page to save friction, including particular Friends, Clubs, Communities, and even services like Xbox Game Pass. This ability to customize includes the Guide, where you can rearrange the tabs to give Achievements, Capture & Share, People, Parties & Chats, and Profile & System settings priority access.

Game library

The Xbox Series X game selection is possibly the new console’s biggest flaw. A few new, high-profile games, none of which were Xbox exclusives, were released on the console at launch, including Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs: Legion, Dirt 5, and Yakuza: Like a Dragon. In actuality, every Xbox Series X launch title was already (or will be) released on Xbox One, and many were also made accessible on PS5. Ori and the Will of the Wisps, Gears 5, Forza Horizon 4, and other launch titles that were Xbox exclusives were all enhanced Xbox One games. With Halo Infinite, Microsoft Flight Simulator, and Forza Horizon 5 boosting Microsoft’s catalogue, the Xbox exclusive situation has pleasantly improved. The Medium, a psychological thriller from Bloober Team, is one of the few games that can only be played on the Xbox Series X|S, though. Before we have access to major players like Everwild, Redfall, and Fable, it will be some time. Though the coming months for Xbox games still appear to be somewhat unknown, ZeniMax Media, the parent company of Bethesda and Activision Blizzard, was recently acquired by Microsoft. Future Bethesda releases like The Elder Scrolls 6 and Starfield will be available exclusively on Xbox One and PC thanks to this significant move by Microsoft, which might significantly improve that underwhelming exclusive offering.

Xbox Series X review: Backwards compatibility

Backwards compatibility was heavily promoted in the months leading up to the launch of the Xbox Series X by Microsoft and ardent Xbox players. Because of the hoopla, we had mentally prepared for letdown. However, there was no need to worry because the Xbox Series X’s backwards compatibility is excellent. Simply purchasing the disc and inserting it into the system will allow any Xbox game from any generation to work on the Xbox Series X. Installation will start if the game is backwards compatible, which many should be. You can instantly download any game listed on Xbox Game Pass that was released before the first Xbox if you have access to it. If ever, these games won’t be able to take advantage of the Series X’s powerful graphics. However, because they may be put directly on the console’s internal SSD, they load quickly. Additionally, any games that used to run sluggishly on outdated hardware ought to at least be slightly improved. There are restrictions since, barring optimization, a game locked at 30 frames per second won’t suddenly run at 60 frames per second or more.With Red Dead Redemption, which functions at 4K/30 fps on the Series X, much like it did on the One X, we discovered that to be the case. When played on the Series X, Assassin’s Creed 2 loads and plays much more quickly than it ever did on the Xbox 360.

Xbox Series X review: Performance

More Xbox Series X optimised titles are available now than there were at launch, demonstrating the capability of the console’s 12 teraflops of graphics processing when used to patch both new and old games. The title Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is one of the most notable ones. Even though it’s not an Xbox Series X exclusive, this game has stunning graphics and is best played on modern game system technology. Its performance on the Xbox Series X when it initially arrived was lacking due to frame rate drops, considerable screen tearing, and an overall performance profile that couldn’t compete with the PS5 version. But with a significant patch, the Xbox Series X version of the game plays much more smoothly. In our experience, it typically hits its intended frame rate of 60 frames per second. However, it makes advantage of a dynamic resolution that, at times of intense action, can scale from 4K to 1440p. Consequently, it doesn’t give a genuine 100% native 4K experience. We can’t really tell when there was a resolution loss, which may be a testimonial to the strength of the upscaler in our 4K TV. It’s impressive that a $500 console can produce clean images and a consistent frame rate for a game like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, considering achieving the same performance on a PC would cost at least $1,000.

Price and availability

Even though the Xbox Series X has been available for almost two years, if you were hoping for a price cut, we’ve got bad news: the console is still $499 in the United States, £449 in the United Kingdom, and AU$749 AU in Australia. That still makes it slightly less expensive than the PS5 in these countries, especially considering that Sony’s gaming console has seen a price increase in the U.K. and other countries but has yet to do so in the U.S. There are certain Xbox Series X bundles that can help you save some money, but they aren’t currently that inexpensive. also you can check our article on Xbox Series X review.


With the Series X, which addresses all the complaints players had seven years ago and goes above and above to make Xbox a greater value-for-money proposition, Microsoft has set a solid basis for the future of gaming. Despite being a powerful system, the Xbox Series X still lacks compelling exclusives that highlight its capabilities. It’s positioned to be a top competitor for this console generation with beautiful visuals, a comfortable UI, and quick load times. However, if you want to get the most out of it, you need sign up for Game Pass. If you do that, you will have the greatest console currently available. If you don’t register, you can find that it barely starts.
