Xbox Series X: console back in stock at Amazon!

XBOX SERIES. Find the second most popular console of the moment in stock at Amazon.

The second most sought-after console by the French, the Xbox Series X remains one of the most sought-after high-tech products of the moment. Like the Playstation 5, the Microsoft console quickly became a very popular object, after many months of shortage which had a strong impact on its launch. What to wonder even today about its availability. We help you find it in our article just below.

Where to buy the Xbox Series X?

Much more present than the Playstation 5, the Xbox Series makes it a front-line competitor. Consoles from the Microsoft universe pose directly as alternatives to Sony consoles, offering renowned exclusives such as Forza Horizon or Halo. In addition, the Xbox Series X is still sold at a lower price compared to its Japanese competitor, for €500 instead of €550.

Although it has become easier to find stock at various retailers in recent weeks, it is still quite common to find the Xbox Series X out of stock. In order to make your purchase, you will have to embark on a little waltz necessary to ensure a quick and easy acquisition of the console.

The Xbox Series S, on the other hand, is built for slightly lower performance, based on a 1440p resolution. Without an expensive Blu-ray player, the Xbox Series S forces players to buy their games online and store them on the hard drive with a reduced capacity of 500 Giga. As such, the Xbox Series S is offered at a price of € 299.99, the price of a Nintendo Switch. At the time of writing, Xbox Series X stocks in France are sold out, but it is still possible to buy an Xbox Series S if the model suits your needs.

The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles have been out for a while now. Many games are available on the latter, with also some exclusives reserved for Microsoft. We are thinking in particular of the excellent racing game Forza Horizon 5. Other great licenses are also must-haves such as the classic FIFA 23 or the game Hogwarts Legacy which will transport you to the magical universe of Harry Potter!

Here are the main features of the Xbox Series X: the machine is advertised as being "at least four times more powerful than an Xbox One". Below you will find the full details of the processor, the graphics card, but also the RAM. As far as memory is concerned, it will therefore be possible to extend it to 2 TB thanks to a memory card.

According to the tests of the specialized press, the console is capable of displaying games in 4K at 60 frames per second, even 120 frames per second for certain titles. The Xbox Velocity Architecture contributes to much faster load times than the previous generation. For the occasion, a video has also been unveiled to testify to the technological leap between the Xbox One X and the Xbox Series X: loading times are considerably shortened, with a high-end console that starts in 10 seconds, when the Xbox One X can take longer than a minute.

To distinguish itself from its direct competitor, Sony, which launched the Playstation 5 on November 19, 2020 in France, Microsoft is pushing the Xbox Game Pass, an all-inclusive subscription formula in which you can get all Xbox Game Studios games from the day of their exit. Far from being satisfied with that, Microsoft regularly adds new games from more or less recent third-party publishers for a total catalog of around a hundred games, to which is also added the EA Play catalog made up of the best-known licenses of the Electronic Arts publishers. We will therefore find Anthem, Battlefield 1, A Way Out, Burnout Paradise Remastered, The Sims 4, Star Wars Battlefront 2, Mass Effect Andromeda, Mirror's Edge Catalyst, Dragon Age Inquisition and many more... The Xbox Game Pass is offered at the price of €9.99 per month for the console or PC subscription and €12.99 per month for the console and PC subscription.

On September 9, 2020, Microsoft formalized the price of its two future next-generation consoles. The Xbox Series X, the high-end version of the duo, is offered at the recommended retail price of €499.99. Its little sister, the Xbox Series S, is slightly less powerful and lacks the 4K UHD Blu-Ray player, which allows the bill to be lower: the price of the Xbox Series S is set at €299.99.

Since November 10, 2020, players have the choice between two consoles stamped Xbox: the Xbox Series X and the Xbox Series S. How to decide between the two if you want to join Microsoft or continue with the console? Know that the Xbox Series X is thought of as the top model with the highest performance. It also has a 4K UHD Blu-Ray player and also acts as a media player. There is also a 1 terabyte hard drive which will obviously store more games than its little sister.

The Xbox Series S, on the other hand, is more like the entry level for this new generation. An entry-level, of course, but without denying too much about the performance at stake since the two machines have very similar architectures. Where the difference is most is with regard to the disc drive: the Xbox Series S does not have one. You will therefore not be able to buy boxed games in stores and will have to download all your games from the internet and store them on your hard drive.

We also note that the Xbox Series S has a hard drive half the size of the Xbox Series X. When we know that current games often weigh several tens of Gigabytes without counting their updates, it's a information that you will need to take into account when making your purchase to consider either the purchase of an additional hard drive or the regular deletion of your games from the hard drive in order to be able to download new ones. Last element to evaluate: the price of course. The Xbox Series X is priced at €499.99 while the Xbox Series S is sold two hundred euros cheaper at €299.99.
