We finally have a price.

Microsoft’s next-generation consoles the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S will both launch on the same day: November 10, 2020. The company confirmed that the Xbox Series X will cost S$699.99 and the Xbox Series S at S$459, with pre-orders for both consoles opening on September 22. 

Watch the new ‘Inside the Xbox Series S’ video:

Microsoft has also confirmed that Xbox All Access will be expanded to 12 countries: Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, South Korea, Sweden, United Kingdom and the United States. Xbox All Access is a monthly payment program, allowing players to get a next-gen console with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate starting from US$24.99 per month for two years. 

Microsoft has also partnered with Electronic Arts to make Xbox Game Pass an even better deal than it already was. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Xbox Game Pass for PC subscribers will now get access to EA Play’s library of 89 games - for no extra charge! That’s a huge addition to the regular Xbox Game Pass Ultimate library, which consists of 246 games. Game Pass subscribers will also get access to discounts on EA digital purchases, and access to game trials and demos from the company. 

Six games will be available to play on the Xbox Series X on launch day (November 10):
