We know all the characteristics of the new Microsoft console, which will be launched at a reduced price and without a disc reader, only digitally.
The final technical characteristics of Xbox Series S, the model of reduced capacities of its new generation of consoles, have been revealed through leaks before the official announcement of Microsoft. After confirming its price and release date, it is time to gather all the information so that you know first-hand what awaits us with this model, which will coexist with Xbox Series X from this month of November.
Xbox Series S price and release date
The first thing to keep in mind is that Xbox Series S will be released on November 10, just like Xbox Series X. The console will be priced at $ 299/299 euros / 249 pounds and will have technical specifications significantly lower than those of his older sister; for that reason it will cost $ 200 less. That said, let’s get to know all about its chassis.
Xbox Series S
Xbox Series S will be 60% smaller than Xbox Series X, a chassis that is very reminiscent of the Xbox One S and Xbox Series X, with the difference that there is new generation hardware inside. The console will be able to offer up to 2K resolution (1440p) up to 120 FPS, so that those who do not have a 4K television have nothing to fear: this is the alternative. If you prefer, you can scale the graphics to 4K, but not natively.
