Xbox Series X retail packaging surfaces, focuses on the green and black grill
The retail packaging for the Xbox Series X has started surfacing online. Unsurprisingly, the main photo focuses on the signature black ventilation grill at the top of the console under which lies a signature Xbox green colored circle.
One of the details we haven’t seen, until today that is, is the retail packaging of either console. The first to make an appearance is the Xbox Series X, courtesy of a Canadian retailer. Unsurprisingly, the image on the front focuses on the signature ventilation grill at the top of the console, as it features a mix of the signature black and green colors that have marked Microsoft’s flagship Xbox consoles.
In yesterday’s announcements, Microsoft also indicated that pre-orders for both consoles will start on September 22 with the consoles going on sale from November 10. It also confirmed that the consoles will be available through its Xbox All Access pass. Over 24 monthly installments, you can own the Series X console for US$34.99 a month or the Series S for US$24.99 a month. This includes a Game Pass Ultimate subscription which can be cancelled at the end of the 24-month period.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
