Xbox Series X: upcoming games will be revealed on May 7

In Australia consumer electronics retailers are banking on several new products to reinvigorate sales following the COVID-19 shutdown

The good news for fans is that the next generation Xbox will be the subject of an online reveal event later this week.

Sony's latest creation may not be capable of all that the new Xbox will supposedly have hidden up its electronic sleeve, but it will pull a number of significant one-ups on its rival release: enter Sony's haptic feedback-enabled PS5 DualSense controller - a masterpiece on paper and hopefully once engaged in gaming battle too.

Connect and play with friends and family on Xbox Live, the fastest, most reliable gaming network Find friends, rivals and teammates in the best global gaming community. The company also actively serves millions of gamers with the game console "Xbox" developed for the video game industry.

Despite all this, there is still some merit in purchasing an Xbox Series X should the games be delayed, as it does inherently support backwards compatibility, though how exactly it improves upon the hardware of the Xbox One with backwards compatible titles remains to be seen.

There's a slew of Xbox Series X games that are already confirmed, such as Halo Infinite, Senua's Saga: Hellblade II and Assassin's Creed Valhalla.
