Xbox Series S

Finally, Microsoft has confirmed its Xbox Series S console after the Youtuber Brad Sams leaked an image and promotional video of its long-rumored Xbox Series S console.

Xbox Series S – The smallest ever Xbox with next-gen performance

Microsoft’s cheaper, less powerful, and digital-only version of the Xbox Series X known as Project Lockhart leaked earlier today, just a few hours before the company made it official. Brad Sams has tweeted a promotional video for the Series S under the twitter account WalkingCat, confirming that the Xbox Series S console is targeting 120fps gaming at up to 1440p resolution and will offer 512GB of storage.

This smallest Xbox ever will also include support for ray tracing, variable-rate shading, and variable refresh rate. The console will be 60 percent smaller than the bigger Xbox Series X. The 512GB storage could be a challenge given modern games regularly exceed the 100GB mark for example COD, but it’s still possible that Xbox Series S will include a removable storage port the same as the larger Xbox Series X. As Microsoft isn’t using a disc drive in this cheaper version.

Release date and pricing details

Reports from Windows Central, suggests that both consoles Xbox Series X and Series S will be released on Nov. 10. The “more powerful” Xbox Series X will cost $499, with a $35 per month Xbox All Access financing option. On the other hand, the Xbox Series S codenamed as Lockhart will cost $299, and will have a $25 per month Xbox All Access financing option.

However, the price of Series S is a pleasant surprise to those anxious about the cost of jumping into the next-gen of gaming. It also ends a long staredown between Microsoft and Sony.
