Following a recent leak, Microsoft has officially revealed their upcoming Xbox Series S console, along with its price and release date. The console is touted as the smallest Xbox to date. Check out the Xbox Series S reveal trailer below for a look at the budget-friendly next-generation console.
Xbox Series S Price & Release Date
The Xbox Series S console costs $299. For reference, a current-gen Xbox One S bundle costs roughly the same price. Microsoft has yet to announce the official price of the Xbox Series X. However, according to a report from Windows Central, the Xbox Series X will cost $499. The Series S is considered to be Microsoft’s more affordable next-gen console option. The Xbox Series S will release on November 10, 2020.
According to the reveal trailer, the Xbox Series S is nearly 60% smaller than the Xbox Series X. The Series S is also an all-digital console, so it doesn’t have a disc drive. Here’s what we know about the Series S so far:
- 1440p at up to 120 FPS
- DirectX ray tracing
- Variable rate shading
- Variable refresh rate
- Ultra-low latency
- Custom 512 GB SSD
