Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S price and release date leaked
Microsoft was rumoured to be working on next generation of Xbox consoles since November 2018. The company has showed off these consoles several times this year.
Now, according to a report by Windows Central, the design for Xbox Series S console and the prices for Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X have been revealed.
A tough opponent for PS5
The Xbox Series S will cost $299 which is quite affordable with a $25 per month All Access financing option and the more powerful Xbox Series X will cost $499 with a $35 All Access financing option. While these are still leaks, there seems to be some credibility to them.
Xbox Series S which will be the “smallest Xbox ever” is expected to have 4TeraFlops RDNA2 with ray-tracing technology aimed towards 1080p monitors compared to the Xbox Series X which offers better performance and is expected to have 12TeraFlops with 4k resolution and a 60fps as a standard going all the way to 120fps in multiplayer.
Xbox Series S will be “digital-only” which means it does not include a disc drive and users will be required to purchase games over the internet through Microsoft’s online store. Prices of both of these consoles are quite similar to Microsoft’s older generations of consoles- Xbox One S and Xbox One X.
The Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X are rumoured to be launched on November 10, 2020.
It will be interesting to see at what price Playstation will rollout their much awaited PS5. Could the digital version be priced as low as the Xbox Series S? Only time will tell.
