Reading Time: 2 minutes

After confirming the release date and price of the Xbox Series S, Microsoft has finally lifted the veil and confirmed that November 10th, is the release date for both the Xbox Series S and the Xbox Series X along with the pre-order date and pricing. It appears that Windows Central was correct regarding the price of the Xbox Series X as the estimated retail price is $499 and as already announced, the Xbox Series S will be $299. Looks like we were all pretty close, but James wins this round.

Alongside this huge announcement, EA and Microsoft will be teaming up to bring EA Play to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and PC members at no additional cost this holiday. This expands the already massive Xbox Game Pass Ultimate library with another 60+ EA titles like FIFA 20, Titanfall 2, Need for Speed Heat, and Mass Effect.

Microsoft also announced that it will be expanding its Xbox All Access program to 12 countries. This program includes either an Xbox Series X or an Xbox Series S plus 24 months of full Xbox Game Pass Ultimate which also includes EA Play as well. The Xbox Series S + 24 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will run $24.99 a month while the Xbox Series X version will cost $34.99. Don’t fret if you are not one of the 12 countries offering Xbox All Access, as they have also announced that more countries will be announced in 2021.

Finally, Microsoft dropped the hammer and revealed that Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S pre-orders are coming starting September 22nd. You can read the entire Xbox Series X announcement here.

And no, not going all access i don’t think. Over 24 months, there is only an $19 price benefit to paying 34.99/mo vs the console plus 14.99/mo for gamepass. And since I already have 18 months of gamepass I pre-paid for at about 10/mo, its not even worth it to me..
