NEXT-LEVEL: Expect fantastic visuals on the system, with super smooth frame rates

Not to mention that 60 fps looks incredible at this resolution, and is a big step up from Xbox One S, which typically plays games in 30 fps.


We'll admit, that PS5 has a ton of exclusives - but they don't have Halo! If you want to play Halo: Infinite, which promises to return the game to its amazing routes - then getting a next-gen Xbox is the one for you.

A MUST-HAVE: You don't want to miss out on this game!

And if you want to re-visit some of the iconic Halo classics, the Series S is waiting!


There's a lot of advantages to going 'discless' when it comes to consoles.

Keeping games on an HDD/ SSD can keep your console running smoothly, but it's also a great way to build a huge games library, and take it wherever you want!

(BONUS) Bethesda! 

You may have seen the recent and exciting news about Microsoft and Bethesda, but the short version is that Microsoft squired ZeniMax Media, the parent company of Bethesda Softworks.

THE BEST IS YET TO COME: Watch out, because so amazing games could be incoming

Bethesda are the people behind games like The Elder Scrolls, Fallout, Wolfenstein, DOOM, Dishonored, Prey, Quake, Starfield and many more! 

This was announced close to the pre-order date, so Microsoft may well have far more up their sleeves in the next couple of months.


It would be breath of fresh air for Xbox players, as PlayStation do have an impressive track record of great exclusive games.

With this move, perhaps we'll see the playing field levelled!
