The Xbox Live free games news comes as Microsoft has revealed more details on their next console – the Xbox Series X – following its TGA unveiling.

The first pictures of the Xbox X showed the cuboid shaped console standing like a PC tower, which may not suit everyone’s living room set-up.

But now Microsoft has confirmed that the console can indeed be stood up or laid on its side.

That’s according to Xbox boss Phil Spencer, who revealed the good news in a recent interview with Gamespot.

“The first thing I wanted to say is the [Xbox Series X’s] design works vertical or horizontal, just like the Xbox One S and Xbox One X,” he said.

“We think that it’s not our job to dictate the orientation of our console in your home. That is up to you.”

It was recently revealed that the Xbox Series X would be powered by an AMD Ryzen Zen 2 CPU and an AMD Navi-based GPU with 12 TFLOPs of power.

It will provide “world-class” visuals with variable refresh rate support and 8K capabilities.

“We will also remove the technical barriers faced in previous generations and enable developers to create more expansive, immersive gaming worlds that invite more players to play,” Microsoft confirms.

“From a technical standpoint, this will manifest as world-class visuals in 4K at 60FPS, with the possibility of up to 120FPS, including support for Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), and 8K capability.

“Powered by our custom-designed processor leveraging the latest Zen 2 and next generation RDNA architecture from our partners at AMD, Xbox Series X will deliver hardware-accelerated ray tracing and a new level of performance never before seen in a console.

“Additionally, our patented Variable Rate Shading (VRS) technology will allow developers to get even more out of the Xbox Series X GPU and our next-generation SSD will virtually eliminate load times and bring players into their gaming worlds faster than ever before.”
