Editor’s note: At this time, very few native Xbox Series X games are available to test, and online services and features won’t be stress-tested until the console is widely available to the public. For those reasons, we consider this a review in progress, and will update it extensively over the next several weeks, adding a final review score when appropriate.
Just the name itself, Xbox Series X — following Xbox One X and Xbox One — points towards steady progress as opposed to a grand leap into uncharted territory. But the $500 (£450, AU$749) Xbox Series X is a different beast at launch, compared to its 2013 predecessor, the Xbox One. There’s no more Kinect camera. No HDMI-in port right next to the usual HDMI-out port, back when the Xbox One wanted to be your cable box.
