Microsoft is preparing for the launch of its next-generation gaming console lineup, the Xbox Series X and Series S. The company is set to launch the console on November 10 on the international stage. Unlike most Microsoft products, the Xbox Series X and Series S consoles are available across the globe starting tomorrow. To mark the launch, the company is holding multiple “Xbox launch celebrations” across the world. In addition, the company is also holding a global celebration live stream that starts at 12:30 AM on November 11, 2020. In addition, some users have started receiving their preorders in India hours before the official global launch of Xbox Series X and Series S.

Microsoft Xbox Series X and Series S global launch celebration, details

The global launch celebration will offer a platform for Xbox fans to connect and play together. Microsoft states that players can use the device of their choice to “play alongside Team Xbox”. It has also roped in multiple partners and content creators to craft a rich experience. In addition, players can also look at next-generation games, hear from game developers, and play games with them. The live stream will be available on Facebook Gaming, YouTube, and Twitch. Some of the games available on the showcase will be Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs: Legion, and Forza Horizon 4. Other games also include Gears Tactics, Gears 5, Destiny 2, Tetris Effect Connected, Grounded, Dirt5, Bright Memory, Halo MCC, and more.

Microsoft is also taking this occasion to highlight Xbox FanFest attendees and Xbox Team members at the event. We will also likely see a new Xbox Gear Launch collection along with time-limited discounts on “exclusive products” and gear drops. Interested gamers can head to the Xbox FanFest website to register and opt-in to win prizes. The company is holding location-specific digital events in New Zealand, France, Germany, Sweden, UK, Brazil, Mexico, Canada, and the United States.

Early shipping of Xbox consoles; delays in the future

Some users have also taken to Twitter to show-off their Xbox Series S consoles in India. The best part of this is that the company is not stopping these lucky gamers from starting to game. Instead, lucky owners of Xbox Series X and S can plug-in and start playing. Some reports incorrectly noted that the company has not shipped inventory and shipments will be delayed. However, Mako Reactor noted that due to limited inventory, delays are still expected in shipment, especially for the Series X.
