INTERNATIONAL - Microsoft Corp. showed off its new game console, the Xbox Series X, for the first time, confirming the machine would go on sale in the 2020 holiday period.
That sets up a clash with Sony Corp.’s PlayStation 5 console, scheduled to release at the same time.
The US company’s new console boasts an unusual monolithic shape, though it comes with a familiar controller design. A price for the new machine has yet to be announced. Microsoft had previously said that the new console would be four times more powerful than the current generation Xbox One X.
