Microsoft (sort of) cleared up the significance of the Xbox Series X name by describing that Series X is undoubtedly simply the name of a solitary version of Xbox.
“The name we’re carrying forward to the next generation is simply Xbox,” claimed Microsoft by means of a declaration made to Business Insider. “And at The Game Awards you saw that name revived with the Xbox Series X…Similar to what followers have actually seen with previous generations, the name ‘Xbox Series X’ permits space for added gaming consoles in the future.”
So what does that indicate? Well, it suggests concerning what you would certainly anticipate. The future generation of Xbox gaming consoles will certainly still be normally described as Xbox (as in Xbox, Xbox 360, and also Xbox One), and also Series X is simply the name of one console (the Xbox Series X).
The complication in this circumstances appeared to originate from the concept that Microsoft might be utilizing the expression (Series X) as a calling convention for a collection of next-gen gaming consoles and also not simply one gadget. In various other words, there was a concept that they might pivot far from the Xbox brand name and also simply usage “Series X” to determine their following gaming consoles. However, this declaration verifies that Series X is simply the name of a solitary console.
Here’s where points are going to obtain a bit a lot more complex. Rumors recommend that the Xbox Series X will certainly not be Microsoft’s just next-gen console. They are additionally apparently dealing with a digital-only gadget that will certainly work as the lower-end next-gen Xbox. While those reports have actually not been validated past all uncertainty, it does make you question what that gaming console will certainly be called if it’s ever before launched.
In any kind of instance, you can absolutely comprehend why Sony is simply choosing “PlayStation 5” as their next-gen console name.
