Year-round showers; a surprising amount of lightning strikes; and heavy humidity: the should prepare for all these things. Being tiny, and only 1.5 degrees from the Equator, Singapore enjoys a tropical climate that is almost unceasingly warm and humid, all year long.

Singapore experiences no distinct seasons, the way visitors from temperate regions understand them. Locals observe a nominal dry season from March to August (with temperatures reaching a peak in April), and a wet season from September to February (with temperatures falling to an all-year-low in January). The difference, though, is hardly noticeable: even the “dry” season sees almost daily rainfall.

Singapore’s high temperature, humidity and lack of wind can come as a shock to visitors used to cooler climates. Unsurprisingly, air conditioners are commonplace throughout the island; Singapore’s founder Lee Kuan Yew himself famously declared the air conditioner as one of mankind’s greatest inventions. Do as the locals do, and avoid walking too long in the outdoors if you can—the air conditioners are there for a reason!

The Xbox Series X and the Xbox Series S (collectively, the Xbox Series X/S[b]) are home video game consoles developed by Microsoft. They were both released on November 10, 2020 as the fourth generation of the Xbox console family, succeeding the Xbox One family. Along with Sony’s PlayStation 5, also released in November 2020, the Xbox Series X and Series S are part of the ninth generation of video game consoles.[3]

Rumors regarding the consoles first emerged in early 2019, with the line as a whole codenamed “Scarlett”, and consisting of high-end and lower-end models codenamed “Anaconda” and “Lockhart” respectively. Internally, Microsoft had been satisfied with the two-console approach for the Xbox One, and planned a similar approach for the fourth generation Xbox, with the target for the high-end model to at least double the performance of the Xbox One X. The high-end model was first teased during E3 2019 under the title “Project Scarlett”, while its name and design as Xbox Series X was unveiled during The Game Awards later in December. In September 2020, Microsoft unveiled the lower-end model as the Xbox Series S.

The Xbox Series X has higher end hardware, and supports higher display resolutions (up to 8K resolution) along with higher frame rates and real-time ray tracing; it also has a high-speed solid-state drive to reduce loading times. The less expensive Xbox Series S uses the same CPU, but has a less powerful GPU, has less memory and internal storage, and lacks an optical drive. Both consoles are backwards compatible with many previous generation Xbox games, controllers, and accessories. As part of a program Microsoft calls “Smart Delivery”, many previous generation games feature upgraded graphics on the Series X/S at no additional charge. The consoles are also compatible with the gaming subscription service Xbox Game Pass, as well as the cloud game-streaming platform Xbox Game Pass cloud gaming.
