After a long wait, Microsoft finally released the pre-sale in Brazil of its new consoles: Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X. Designed to meet the most demanding gamers, the two video games will have a significant improvement in graphics quality, performance, and other advantages that Microsoft usually offers.
Both consoles will be able to run games in 4K resolution, reaching 120 FPS, when there is compatible content and screen. Streaming playback will also take place in 4K and there will be 4K upscaling for lower quality games, which sets the new generation as an important milestone for graphical improvement.
Another highlight for both versions is the backwards compatibility between Xbox One, Xbox 360 and the original Xbox. In other words, if you already own the consoles of previous generations, you can enjoy the games you already had. In addition, with the Xbox Game Pass, you will be able to access a huge catalog of games, with a monthly subscription, being able to download as many games as you want, without additional charge.
If you’re wondering if it’s worth investing in the new generation and exchanging your Xbox One for the new Xbox Series, check out a summary below with everything both versions have to offer. So you’ll be able to choose the best console according to your requirements, and you’ll be prepared for the future of gaming.
Xbox Series S
Modernity and practicality for brand fans. Xbox Series S is exclusive for digital media with 4K streaming and 4K Upscaling for games.
This is the model for those who are interested in the new generation, but don’t care about games on physical media. For that reason, the Xbox Series S is more compact and cheaper, but it will still be able to run games with the same graphic quality. To cut costs, Microsoft opted for a model with a more modest configuration, but one that won’t affect the console’s performance.
In addition to the smaller size, the Xbox Series S comes with a 512GB SSD. As this is a console that will only work with digital media, it is possible that it will be important to invest in a 1TB expandable memory card, which will be compatible with the console. Remember that in this version, backwards compatibility will be with digital games, which will run with a resolution limited to 1440p.
Xbox Series X
Powerful, fast and with images that will give another life to games. Xbox Series X offers Xbox Velocity Architecture, which combines a custom SSD and built-in software to significantly decrease in-game and out-of-game loading times and 4K resolution at up to 120 frames per second, premium advanced 3D sound, and more
For those who are after the maximum power of the new generation, this is certainly the most suitable model. Able to offer an experience never seen before in a video game, the more powerful brother of the new generation will have an extremely powerful GPU, reaching up to 12 teraflops of graphics power. This means that the console will run all available games with extremely high processing power.
Another important difference is the presence of a drive for physical media. This, added to the more powerful configuration, also makes the Xbox Series X a little bigger. Finally, this model comes with a 1TB SSD, and is also compatible with a 1TB memory card, to double the internal space.
