Microsoft has announced some new “Designed for Xbox” monitors that have been created with the Xbox Series X|S consoles in mind. The Asus Strix Xbox Edition Gaming Monitor XG43UQ and Acer Xbox Edition Gaming Monitor XV282K KV come with plenty of bells and whistles, but they are also quite pricey.

Three specially designed monitors for Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S console owners have now been revealed by Microsoft. Gamers have a choice between brands, sizes, and specifications, although all three can support 4K resolution at a 120 Hz refresh rate and offer HDMI 2.1 connectivity. While the monitors seem to have plenty of tempting selling points for Xbox Series X|S gamers, the hefty price tags might send many off to buy a cheaper HDMI 2.1-capable 4K television instead.

We already reported about the Philips Momentum 559M1RYV and further down the line in terms of size and price is the Asus Strix Xbox Edition Gaming Monitor XG43UQ, which unsurprisingly offers Xbox Series X and S console owners a similar set of specifications as the Philips monitor but in a smaller form: a 43-inch display here. For US$1,399.00 buyers of the Asus Strix XG43UQ can access enhanced Xbox modes for game visuals and HDR visuals that improve the color, contrast, and hue. The Asus Xbox monitor should be available in October.

Last but not least there is the 28-inch Acer Xbox Edition Gaming Monitor XV282K KV (Nitro XV2) that has a price tag of US$949.99 and is scheduled for release in fall. Gamers can expect 1 ms response times with the Acer XV282K KV and take advantage of the same FreeSync Premium Pro technology from AMD that is present in the Philips and Asus Xbox monitors. Also onboard is Acer’s VisionCare 3.0, which is TÜV Rheinland-certified and should help prevent tired or sore eyes caused by long gaming sessions.
