    The information about tech specs isn't the only Xbox Series X news we're getting--we also now possibly have the official launch date of the console itself. The Microsoft website changed its original text from "power your dreams, coming holiday 2020" to "power your dreams, coming Thanksgiving 2020". In the United States, this year's Thanksgiving will take place on November 26th, though the date itself was never stated and was only mentioned on the Xbox Australia and Xbox India sites, while the American page hasn't yet been updated to mention this. Additionally, both regional pages were quickly edited back to say "coming 2020" once more, after the change was noticed by many. Regardless, a November launch seems quite accurate, and almost certain, considering the original XBox, 360, and One, all previously released in the month of November.

    UPDATE: Well that was put down quickly. The Xbox Series X will definitively NOT be launching on Thanksgiving Day. Xbox's Major Nelson took to Twitter to shut down speculation explaining that for reasons unknown, the Xbox website in certain regions displayed an incorrect release date for the system, and that Xbox is committed to releasing "Holiday 2020", not Thanksgiving.

    Well, that was probably the most bizarre news post I had to write. Thanks, Xbox.

    Honestly, they can come out with the systems in 2021 at this point. Everyone has massive backlogs, and I don't think the world is gonna end because the mainstream 9th generation of consoles is getting pushed back a year.

    Maybe they should consider changing the console name. Maybe Xbox2 or Xbox 4k..
    The name already sounds inappropriate for young children and general public! (Xbox-'s'-ex)

    Not gonna happen until Switch sales start dwindling and there aren't many more games coming out. It makes sense to do that towards the end, to get some last sales, it makes zero sense right now when the Switch is already doing so well. Besides, no devs want to limit their game to only working on the Switch Pro, it would be the same situation as the n3DS, the only improvement you would get on Switch Pro is better FPS, and higher resolution in games that use dynamic resolution scaling.
