The Game Awards 2019 took place today in Los Angeles, California. There were many surprises at the event, but the biggest one had to be the Xbox Series X reveal. The console looks like a PC tower with a green light at the top that signifies that it's on. It's a unique form factor that should look quite good in a living room.

You can take a look at all the major Xbox One-related announcements from The Game Awards below.

Xbox Series X

Xbox head Phil Spencer revealed the Xbox Series X. The name reveal was accompanied by what the console looks like and it's similar to a PC tower. It's quite small and very sleek. The first game for the platform, Senua's Saga: Hellblade II, was announced for the console as well. It's unclear if it's going to be a launch title or come after Holiday 2020.
