Xbox Series S, Revealed

Posted on September 7, 2020 by Brad Sams in Games, Xbox with 16 Comments

We knew it was coming since 2018 but now we have our first look at the unannounced hardware. The Xbox Series S is expected to be announced sometime soon but this is your first look at the hardware.

The big news here, aside from the device itself, is that it looks like it will cost $299 when the hardware hits retail availability. The console is white and based on the image, does not appear to have a disc drive but we don’t fully know that until we get a better side shot of the console. Further, this device appears to look closer to the Xbox One family of devices than the tower of the Series X.

With this price point, Microsoft is making an aggressive entry into the next-generation console wars and will likely undercut the PS5 on pricing. Further, we can likely speculate that the Series X should come in at either $499 or possibly $599, based on the pricing of this console.

While we still do not know the release date for this console, or the Series X, based on the images that have started showing up across the web for this console, an announcement should be right around the corner.

For now, we need to wait for Microsoft to officially announce the console and more importantly, let us know the date that the hardware will be released.

[Update] Microsoft has officially announced the console – more info here.
