Microsoft has finally confirmed the long-rumoured details regarding Xbox Series S by releasing a teaser video. It confirms the details of the Xbox Series S pricing and availability. According to the video, it will be available starting from November 10 at a price tag of $300/£250.
Coming to the details, Xbox Series S will pack a built-in NVMe SSD storage of 512 GB capacity, which is customised by Microsoft. In the latest gaming console, the company has removed all optical drives, calling it an “all-digital console”. This means you will have to download games from the Microsoft store by paying extra for each title. However, the company is also offering an Xbox games subscription pass which will let you download multiple games by paying for a monthly subscription fee. With the Series S, the company claims to bring 1440P gaming with 120 FPS at a budget. Besides this iteration of Xbox will be the first of its kind to have DirectX Raytracing and variable rate shading features, which is usually exclusive to PC gamers.
Microsoft has also shed light on the games that will be available soon after the launch. These include Cyberpunk 2077 (November 19), Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War (November 13), Assasin’s Creed: Valhalla (November 17) and so on. Besides the new console will also support all the titles which were released for its predecessors. The Xbox Series S will be up to 40% compact when compared to Series X. As of now, there is no information about pricing and availability of Xbox Series X but make sure to stay tuned to know about it as soon as the word is out
