There’s no denying that Xbox is truly becoming the most gamer-friendly platform. They’ve established this on Xbox One via a willingness to support backward compatibility, which will continue on with the Xbox Series X. All existing Xbox One games and current backward-compatible Xbox 360 and original Xbox games will be playable on Xbox Series X.
Smart Delivery is just a catchy name that basically means when you buy an Xbox Game Studios title, such as Halo Infinite, you’re going to get the “best available version for whichever Xbox console they choose to play on.” With the Xbox One’s messaging muddied at launch, Smart Delivery just seems like a catchy word that means the obvious.
Xbox Game Pass
Xbox Game Pass is, without a doubt, one of the best services available in gaming. It’s like Netflix for Xbox. You pay a monthly subscription and you gain access to a library of hundreds of games, including all first-party titles on the day of release. Goodbye $60 new game purchases. With Xbox Game Pass, you can get Halo Infinite for just the price of the subscription.
Pricing and Release Date
Unfortunately, we still have no details regarding Xbox Series X pricing. It sounds expensive though. We’ll hopefully get a better idea of cost at E3 in June. As for the release date, we’ll probably also get that at E3, but we do know the Xbox Series X is launching this holiday season.
