Microsoft seem to have reacted to the giant leaks of the Xbox Series S by officially confirming the existence of the new consoles as well as its super low price point.
The Series S is set to release for 299 USD. Th catch seems to be the console is much less powerful than next gen consoles, rather its power seems more comparable to that of the current generations PlayStation 4 Pro. On top of which there is no visible disc slot. So this is likely a digital only console. So it is more of a gamepass machine. This is all according to the leaks that revealed the console and pushed Microsoft to show it as well. If the leaks are true, don’t expect an actual next gen experience from this console. Just expect more of this gen.
Official specs have not been announced nor has the official release date.
👀 Let’s make it official!
Xbox Series S | Next-gen performance in the ˢᵐᵃˡˡᵉˢᵗ Xbox ever. $299 (ERP).
