In addition to launching the Xbox Series X, Microsoft will also be launching the Xbox Series S. This will be a cheaper version of the Series X, although at this point in time, we’re not sure what the differences between the consoles are, but if you’re on a budget, then you might be pleased to learn that the Series S will only cost you $299.
This makes the Series S one of the company’s cheapest consoles to date and is on par with the pricing of the base Xbox One S when it was first launched, but still slightly more expensive than the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition which is $50 cheaper. It’s actually impressive that Microsoft has managed to maintain the pricing on the Series S, especially when it is expected that the next-gen consoles will be more expensive than their predecessors.
👀 Let’s make it official!

Once again, the specs of the Series S was not revealed so it is unclear how big of a compromise gamers will have to make compared to the Series X. However, Microsoft is expected to officially unveil more details in the near future, so we should have more information then, so be sure to check back with us in the coming months for the updates.
