Xbox Series X Costs $499, Launching November 10

Both of Microsoft's consoles launch on the same day.

The Xbox Series X price has finally been revealed, along with a release date for Microsoft's more powerful next-gen console. The Series X will retail for $499 and will launch worldwide on Nov. 10.

The announcement came earlier today from Microsoft, after the Xbox Series S was leaked—and shortly thereafter confirmed—just yesterday. Both of Microsoft's next-gen consoles will be available on the same day, and will both be available to pre-order starting September 22.

Yesterday proved to be quite the day for Microsoft. In the early hours of the morning, the Xbox Series S price, release date, and official trailer all leaked online, detailing a $299 price point with a November 10 release date.

Just a few hours later, Microsoft quickly responded to the leak by confirming the price for the smaller console. Then, later on in the day, the release date of November 10 was finally confirmed. It's been quite the waiting game, but we finally know when both of Microsoft's next-gen consoles will be launching, and how much they'll both cost.

November sure is shaping up to be a packed month, and that was before two next-gen Xbox consoles were added to the mix. The Xbox Series X and S both release on the same day as Destiny 2's big Beyond Light expansion, and later on that same week, Yakuza: Like a Dragon will be making its debut on both Xbox's current-gen and next-gen systems. This is all while Assassin's Creed Valhalla launches the same day, Nov. 10, and Cyberpunk 2077 launches the week after. So nothing major going on, really.
