Microsoft has confirmed the games that will be available for the Xbox Series S and X on the day the consoles launch, November 10, 2020. These won’t be the only games available to play, since the consoles have powerful backwards compatibility capabilities, but they are the only next-gen games that will be available at the time.
The company confirmed that these thirty games were either built specifically for the next-generation consoles, or have been rebuilt specifically for them with various enhancements. They added that all of these games will also be available to play on some form of Xbox One console as well.
Unfortunately for Sony fans, the list of games available on launch day for the PlayStation 5 looks much smaller. In fact, it’s still unknown just how many games will be available for their console on launch day.
This is yet another blow to Sony when it comes to the next-generation race. Microsoft is pushing hard to make thiers the most appealing consoles, and so far they’ve been succeeding. Certainly on November 10, Xbox will be the place to play.
What will Sony do to reassure users that their next-generation console will have just as much to offer? They need to do it soon, or risk losing a lot of faith that has been placed in them.
