Xbox Series S: design and price
We were all aware that sooner or later this moment must come. And it is that after several months talking about it and the occasional official reference in the brand’s gamepads, we finally have the first image of what the second video game console that Microsoft will launch together with its already presented Xbox Series X will be.
It has been leaked the layout of Microsoft’s second generation console. As you can see on an aesthetic level, it has similarities with the Xbox Series X, not in vain it maintains the same design language. Although, yes, in terms of dimensions it is smaller.
In the end, we do not have that more square design that some imagined as a concept based on that of the Series X, but it is a rectangle that to some extent reminds the Xbox One. What stands out from the Xbox Series S, in addition if it is narrower, it is its circular-shaped grille that will serve to dissipate the hot air from inside the console and that does not include a disc player.
That second, the reader’s theme, is because this console will bet on the digital format one hundred percent. Something that, among other technical decisions at the hardware level, will allow it to have a much more attractive and competitive price to attract a large number of undecided users to whom the price of Series X and even Playstation 5 may seem excessive.
What’s more, this console could make many who bet on the Sony machine also consider getting Xbox Series S to enjoy its exclusives and other value bets at a much more affordable price. And, the other leaked data next to the design is the price. The Xbox Series S would cost $ 299.
The Xbox Series S hardware
As you know if you have been following the news, the new Xbox Series S will feature less capable hardware than Series X. Hence the price reduction. Still, you don’t have to worry too much if you are not a super demanding user. Because Microsoft’s next-generation inexpensive console will be able to run all the new games that are released on the market. The only difference is that having less power these will not go to the maximum, at 4K resolution, but they would run at a 1440p and 60p maximum video quality.
However, we will talk about all these details and differences shortly. Because with this leak it is possible that the official presentation of the new Xbox Series S could be falling. Perhaps, in a matter of a couple of days we will have official data and the other great detail that remains to be known about the Xbox Series X, its price. Although taking into account the cost of this, it is still around the 599 dollars that have also been rumored.
