Xbox Series X price in Nigeria, details, and full specs

Since it was first announced in December 2019, Microsoft has been unveiling details about the Xbox Series X in bits. The Xbox Series X is considered the “fastest and most powerful console ever” and this is clearly obvious when you look at the specs on paper and compare it with its rival PS5. It somewhat outshines the PlayStation 5 in terms of its specs.

We’ve got information about the Xbox Series X price in Nigeria, full performance specs, details about backward compatibility, accessories, and upcoming games this holiday.

Xbox Series X price in Nigeria and availability

The Xbox Series X price in Nigeria is at N350,000. Meanwhile, the official price in the US is $499 which is equivalent to N190,000.

Xbox Series X features eight cores Custom “Zen 2” CPU at 3.8GHz. This helps to activate the ‘Fast Resume’ feature, enabling users to continue numerous games virtually immediately from a suspended state.

The GPU is customized and it is based on Radeon RDNA 2 architecture. It has a processing power of 12 teraflops. This makes it more than capable of gaming with native 4 K 60fps. It also enables the console to reach 8 K resolution and run games up to 120 fps. As seen on the high-end Nvidia graphics cards, this GPU also supports real-time ray-tracing.

At least on paper, the Xbox Series X specs have a bit of an advantage over the PS5. The Series X, for example, has a processing power of up to 12 teraflops, while the PS5 delivers 10.3 teraflops. The 1 TB SSD of the Series X also has a higher capacity than the 825 GB SSD found on PS5. Other hardware includes 16GB of GDDR6 RAM.

If 1 TB SSD of storage is not sufficient, there is an expandable storage slot in the back that will give you an additional 1 TB of storage. It also supports an external HDD via USB 3.1, which is good for those who want to further extend the storage.

The Xbox Series X external Storage expansion card is designed to be plugged directly into the proprietary port on the back of the Xbox Series X. It seems like the proprietary port is used so that the Xbox Series X expansion card speeds fit the internal SSD speeds. This indicates that there would be no performance change while playing games from the expansion card.

Xbox series X design

The design of the Xbox Series X is totally different from its predecessors. It has a tower design similar to a gaming PC. However, Series X can rest vertically or horizontally. 

The console is black in color with an indented cooling vent at the top surface when sitting vertically. The cooling vents have a green color light from inside. Looking at the top left corner of the console, there’s a tiny Xbox logo and a 4 K Ultra HD Blu-ray physical disc drive slot just below it.

The rear of the Xbox Series X features power ports, two USB 3.2 ports, Ethernet LAN, and one HDMI 2.1 output. A “storage extension” also exists for the optional proprietary SSD card. The console measures 15.1 cm x 15.1 cm x 30.1 cm and weighs 4.45kg.

Xbox Series X user experience

The Xbox Series X OS will come with the one that is now available on the Xbox One S and Xbox One X, but the Xbox Series X interface will come with some design refinements, new fluent concepts, new fonts, etc. which will also be available for the Xbox One S and Xbox One X.

Xbox Series X controller & accessories

A marginally improved version of the current-gen Xbox Wireless Controller will be available for the Xbox Series X. A dedicated Sharing button for screenshots and video recording has been added, and the D-pad is now enhanced. Textured dots have been added to the bumpers so as to help in a firmer grip. One good thing about this new controller is that it has a USB-C port to let you charge and play at the same time. The new controller will operate on Windows PCs as well as cell phones (Both Android and iOS). It is priced at N25,000 – N35,000 ~$59.99.

A $25 Rechargeable Battery + USB-C are the official Xbox Series X accessories that can be purchased from Xbox online retail stores.

Microsoft confirmed that all of your current Xbox One accessories will be compatible with the Xbox Series X.

What’s in the box when I purchase the next-gen console? You will get an Ultra High-Speed HDMI cable, Xbox controller, and of course, the console.

Backward compatability

For all the three previous Xbox console generations, the Xbox Series X is backward compatible to all of the games, and the games can even play smoother, due to th upgraded performance of Xbox Series X.  All you need to do is  mount your  Xbox One games  on an external hard drive and play them  instantly when plugged into the Xbox Series X.

As for the original Xbox and Xbox 360 games, Microsoft has not explained whether they are backward compatible but it is very possible that Xbox Series X will be able to play both original Xbox and Xbox 360 games that are already backwards compatible on Xbox One.
