Microsoft says it is very pleased with the early critical reception of its Xbox Series X / S consoles ahead of its November 10 release.
The company launched pre-orders for the Xbox Series X / S on September 22, at the same time as review units began to be distributed to the press and influencers.
Speaking during Microsoft’s earnings call on Tuesday, CEO Satya Nadella said: “We are delighted with the early reviews and excitement of the Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X, which will be the most affordable and powerful consoles available.”
The initial stock of the Xbox Series X accelerated rapidly, and some retailers later informed players that they might not receive their console on the day of release.
Microsoft says it plans to make more X / S consoles than Xbox available on launch day following “record” demand for next-generation systems.
The first unofficial unboxing video for the Xbox Series X was released earlier this month, showing gamers what to expect when it comes to retail units in two weeks.
The second unofficial video for the unboxing of the Xbox Series X was released last week, as the X / SX / S consoles were pictured arriving at Target stores in the United States.
Microsoft recently unveiled the Xbox series to launch Xbox software, including 20 games that support Smart Delivery, allowing players to purchase a title once and play it across current and future consoles.
Xbox boss Phil Spencer expects the Xbox Series S to surpass sales of the Xbox Series X over the next generation and has suggested that Microsoft has already begun work on future Xbox Series reps.
