In addition to the upcoming Xbox Series X designed to compete directly with PlayStation 5, Microsoft has announced that it will also release an affordable and a smaller sized called Xbox Series S at a very reasonable price.

Rightly so, just hours after the photos were released, the release date and the price of both the anticipated Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, Microsoft has announced it's time to publicly announce the Xbox Series S boy. Interestingly, we were told about the price of the Xbox Series S - $299 / £249.99 (around AU$400) Pre-order September 22, 2020, and Available November 10, 2020

What do we know so far?

Microsoft used its official Xbox Twitter account to announce the console-the smallest one ever, giving us an idea of the price point for the new-gen. So far, it is rumoured to have features including;

  • Faster loading times
  • Custom NVMe SSD drive
  • Ultra-low latency
  • Custom 512GB SSD
  • Seamless game switching
  • 4K media playback
  • DirectX Raytracing support
  • Variable refresh rate support
  • Variable rate shading
  • 1440P/120FPS support
  • 4K upscaling for games

The other advantage is that the Xbox Series S will be able to use alternative storage options-at an extra cost to you-for example, an 1 TB optional SSD already revealed for the X Series.
