Apparently, the Xbox Series S launching at an affordable price is proving a winning move.
On top of that, Xbox Game Pass is proving very popular among the users of the new consoles, likely surprising no one.
- More new consoles sold than any prior generation, with Xbox Series S adding the highest percentage of new players for any Xbox console at launch
- More games played, 3,594 in total, spanning four generations, setting a record for the most games ever played during an Xbox console launch
- Next gen means more ways to discover and play, 70 percent of Series X|S consoles are attached to new and existing Xbox Game Pass members
It’ll certainly be interesting to see how much better the Series S and Series X will do than the Xbox One on the long run, potentially pushing stronger competition in the market, which is usually good for everyone involved.
Recently, we heard interesting insight from Xbox Finance general manager Tim Stuart, who talked about the new consoles, Xbox Game Pass, and Microsoft’s strategy to win.
We also heard more from Microsoft’s executives about their predictions for the launch of the new consoles on top of Phil Spencer’s take.
Of course, you should also read our own review of the Series X and hear whether it’s worth adding to your entertainment cabinet.
