Want to know more about the Xbox series?

Here are some introductions about Xbox. I believe that new gamers will have a better understanding of Xbox after reading the following contents.

XBOX console:

By stage, Xbox gamers have been experienced four times. They are Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One S / X, and Xbox Series S / X.


The first two series have been eliminated because they were published about 10 years ago. There is a series called Xbox One, which is the transition product. From this generation, Microsoft aims to develop the encryption technique and applies it to the Xbox console. After the series Xbox one, there are no more cracked game consoles or pirated CDs, which also means that there is no longer a free lunch.

Currently, the mainstream product for sale is the Xbox One's S/X series. We don’t discuss Specific parameters for now. The one thing you need to know is that the series Xbox One X has a perfect performance, faster loading transitions, and better picture quality rendering. 

Xbox S/X Series is the new console series released in November 2020. The Xbox X series also has an excellent performance with the optical drive, compatible with Xbox One series CD-ROM (the series Xbox 360 genuine CD-ROM to be verified).

Xbox connection: 

The Xbox game controller has three types of connections: wired connection, Bluetooth connection, and adapter connection.

The Xbox pc wireless adapter is a converter. A windows adapter is an interface converter, which can be a stand-alone hardware interface device that allows a hardware or electronic interface to be connected to other hardware or electronic interfaces, or it can be an information interface. The new version of the adapter can connect up to 8 controllers. Microsoft's first-generation wireless adapter for the Xbox controller compared to SONY's same products are too large. Obviously, the Xbox first generation adapter has less competitive, but fortunately, the new generation of Xbox wireless adapter was released in late 2017 or early 2018. This version of the Xbox wireless adapter can help the old version of Xbox One and Elite Xbox One controllers connect to Windows 10 PC with Bluetooth so that it achieves the wireless function of the new Xbox wireless controller. The new Xbox Wireless Adapter is 66% smaller than the previous generation and can connect up to 8 game controllers (with game support), 4 regular headsets, and 2 stereo headsets at the same time. the Xbox Wireless Adapter is designed to help gamers use any wireless Xbox controllers launched by Microsoft on Windows 10 PC, allowing players to enjoy the fun of wireless play.

XBOX game:

Whether PS5, XBOX, or Switch, as long as you are a console player. Buying games is the highest cost. After all, the game console is sold with fewer profits. You will know this if you have a glance at the price of the same hardware configuration. The games on XBOX are available in the following mediums.

CD-ROM version: the traditional medium.

The CD-ROM needs to be installed and may need to be updated during installation; after installation, you still need to insert the CD-ROM as a guide to play properly.

Digital version: A digital version of the game that is tied to a personal account.

You can purchase the game through the digital mall and 25-bit code exchange, and most of the exchange codes have a limitation for the exchange of IP, and very few exchange codes limit the use of zone service. For players who like to get free service, XBOX does have a lot of digital versions of the mini-games for free use for a limited time. However, most of the games available for free are either online games or trial or demo versions.

For online games or multiplayer online sections, additional Gold Membership---Gold Live is required.

At the same time, there are some monthly discounts on selected games. For example, the game is in the trial version, providing the chance to play the official version.

XGP: This is equivalent to a rental service.

A group of designated games is replaced regularly every month, and after the expiration date (online status) passed, you cannot play those games.

Besides, It’s mentioned that the development of the Xbox game console and where you can get Xbox games. Hope you can enjoy game time with your Xbox console.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
