Get everything you need to start gaming with Xbox Series X|S

The Xbox Series X and S consoles are the newest models, and you can get one, plus games and accessories, at Best Buy Canada.

What are the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S?

The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S are gaming and entertainment consoles from Microsoft. They provide ultra-processing and graphics power to allow for a realistic, visually, and audibly appealing gaming experience. Whether you’re racing cars, playing a first-person shooter game, or building in Minecraft, the experience on an HD TV is jaw-dropping.

Both support thousands of games that date back four generations of Xbox consoles, though the Xbox Series S is digital only while the Xbox Series X also has a 4K UHD Blu-ray drive for inserting physical discs. Both can also access content from streaming services like YouTube and Netflix.

You’ll get a larger hard drive with the Xbox Series X at 1 TB versus 512GB with the Xbox Series S along with 12 teraflops of graphics processing compared to four in the Series S. The Xbox Series X also supports 4K gaming while the Series S supports up to 1,440p (both support up to 8K video).

Which is the newest Xbox console?

The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S were introduced at the same time, and both remain the company’s newest consoles. They have been out since November 2020 and have become popular among gamers.

Both consoles are available for sale in Canada at Best Buy Canada, with the Xbox Series X being the option of choice for those who have space for the larger unit and don’t want to compromise on features and specs. If you have a dedicates games room and 4K TV and you’re serious about gaming, chances are you’ll save up for that one.

The Xbox Series S, however, is just as popular since it offers many of the same features at a much lower price with a smaller footprint. The digital-only design can also help reduce clutter.

What do you need to start gaming?

Both gaming consoles come with a single controller, so you’ll want to grab a second, or potentially more if you plan to have game nights with friends. The wireless controller comes in fun colors like electric volt and shock blue so you can grab one of each or stick with a favorite.

For playing solo, or with friends while online using an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership, invest in a headset. There are wireless models, some of which come with built-in mics, from brands like HyperX, Turtle Beach, Razer, and Astro.

Finally, you can’t game without an actual video game. Get both physical games to play with the Xbox Series X or digital download codes for either console. Choose from some of the most popular titles like Halo, Forza, and Minecraft, plus older titles on sale. Looking for the hot up-and-coming game? You’ll find pre-order options for some of the most in-demand titles so you can be among the first to get it.
