After the important filtration of Xbox consoles that took place this very morning, Microsoft has taken very little time to officially confirm its new console. Xbox Series S is already a reality, the Redmond company has confirmed the existence of the console with its first official image, and most importantly: it will cost only 299 dollars to start in the United States, 299 euros in Europe and 249 pounds in the United Kingdom.
According to the official Xbox Twitter account, the new Xbox Series S will offer “next-generation performance on the smallest Xbox ever”. As shown in the comparative images of the previous filtering, this console will be much smaller than the Xbox Series X, the high performance option, with a less bulky rectangular design, and without a disk reader.
And, of course, with that front panel vent that’s giving so much to talk about. The most interesting thing, again, is that $299 recommended price, which will make the Xbox Series S a very competitive entry point for the next generation. Lacking official details, the summer’s leaks pointed to a console with less graphics power than Xbox Series X, but with a similar processor, and Microsoft’s new memory architecture.
That is, an affordable, next-generation option focused on 1080p gaming, for those who don’t yet make the leap to 4K resolutions. Or that was pointed out by the previous leaks of the console, for lack of knowing the official technical details.
👀 Let’s make it official!
Xbox Series S | Next-gen performance in the ˢᵐᵃˡˡᵉˢᵗ Xbox ever. $299 (ERP).
