The Xbox Series X officially went on sale around the world earlier today, and if you were lucky enough to snap one up, all you need to do now is wait in anticipation for that big release day on November 10th.
We’ve already highlighted what you’ll first see when the packaging arrives at your door (and you can also view a more detailed snapshot of it above), but what does the back look like? As it turns out, it’s a really neat design:
As you can see, the back of the box is emblazoned with a huge Master Chief, and it also details the console itself, Xbox Velocity Architecture, backwards compatibility and of course, Xbox Game Pass.
The design was clearly finalised well in advance of Halo Infinite’s recent delay to 2021, but nevertheless there’s still plenty of Halo goodness to enjoy on Xbox Series X in the interim, so we think it’s a fitting choice!
Liking the look of the packaging for Xbox Series X? Let us know in the comments below.
Fraser has an unhealthy obsession for all things related to Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead series, and has an intimate knowledge of sports games on Xbox One. He also supports Walsall FC – that team in the West Midlands you’ve never heard of.
@FraserG happy to have made a little contribution to what is turning into a superb Web page and community.
Surely Halo will launch in line with its anniversary hopefully looking a lot better with zero pop in on XSX/XSS or PC the lighting was my main issue gameplay looked on point.
November 10th seems so far away considering I live in Preston which is currently one of the top 5 for infection rates for coronavirus in England land. Hoping to bag an S from brick and mortar when they’re easily available.
Looks good and reminds us once we get the console on the 10th that we still have Halo to come 2021.
@Senua Was crazy this morning some how with four different sites open I got a series x from Argos. Was never this bad with the PS4 and Xbox one preordering. It was calm and chilled.
Hope the Series S box is as incredible as this! just secured a pre order from Microsoft
@BrilliantBill Yes some how, just pure luck about 08:20 after trying for 20 minutes on many websites. Then bang Argos came good. Series X.
@Dezzy70 Yea I vividly remember preordering 2 Xbox Ones (Day 1 editions) with ease. It took me a little over 3 hours to do it this time around.
Beautiful box. It reminds me of the x360 boxes in the Jasper era. I forget what was on it…maybe Halo? I still have that box around somewhere. The front was hideous Wii posturing with the Avatars all over it, but the back was cool graphics. Better than the PS4 box that for some unknown reason most prominently featured Aiden Pierce from Watch_Dogs as the centerpiece, followed by Delsin from inFamous: SS, Nathan Drake, and Sackboy in the background as somehow less significant than Aiden.
It was the only moment I remember anything at all about Aiden’s existence. Not sure how much Ubisoft paid them for that. Reverse money hatting.
@Dezzy70 PS4 ordering dropped at 10:00PM on a Monday night immediately after the Sony E3 conference in mid-June without a 3 month cat and mouse hype war, and WiiU still had some new console smell on it. It was bad, but not quite as bad. But that’s because the only people watching were E3-aholics. And most of the buyers were people jumping ship from the MatrickBox. PS3 owners finally got a few games to play and weren’t in a rush to upgrade. But don’t be fooled, PS4 preorders sold out mighty fast after that and were impossible to get going into that holiday.
XBone orders were easy because you’re one of 12 graduates of the Ministry of Love that actually wanted the Microsoft Telescreen after Matrick poured gasoline on it and announced fireworks following the event. I kid, I kid. You’ve probably heard of me. Remember reading about how someone preordered a Vita? Yeah, that was me….
Xbox One, Halo Infinite
