Microsoft has today unveiled the first ever 'Designed for Xbox' gaming monitors from Philips, ASUS, and Acer, all of which are set to release later this year, with more Xbox licensed monitors to arrive in the future.
These are targeted at the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, and the branding means "you can be confident your new display can support the full speed, performance, and technology of Xbox Series X|S."
Without further ado, here they are:
