Microsoft reveals its Xbox Series S gaming system and its staggeringly low price tag

Microsoft has officially revealed its Xbox Series S console, the company’s affordable entry point into next-generation gaming. Sadly, Microsoft has not revealed the specifications of their system yet, but we do know its UK pricing, £249.99. In the US this console will cost $299. 

With Xbox Series S, Microsoft is undercutting its competition, offering its latest system for a price tag that Sony cannot match with its PlayStation 5 system. Unfortunately, this system appears to lack a disk drive, though that was a sacrifice that had to be made to achieve such low retail pricing. 

Early rumours suggest that this new system will feature a 4 TFLOPs graphics component and the same CPU/storage specifications as the Xbox Series X, allowing the Xbox Series S to run all Xbox Series X games at lower display resolutions. This information should be confirmed at a later date, as Microsoft has stated that they plan to share more details on the system “soon”.  

Microsoft’s Xbox Series S console is the company’s smallest Xbox ever, a fact which will allow the system to be stored in smaller spaces and be transported more easily than ever before. 

Update – A leak from @_h0x0d_ on Twitter has revealed that the Xbox Series S system will include a 512GB SSD, a form factor that’s 60% smaller than the Xbox Series X and support 1440p at up to 120 FPS in games with 4K upscaling. This All-Digital console will also support DirectX Raytracing, Variable Refresh Rates (VRR), and Variable Rate Shading.
