Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S will be available on November 10 for 499,99 euros and 299,99 euros, respectively. Pre-orders are possible from September 22nd. This is no longer a leak, no longer a rumor, but official.

Xbox Series S as a budget model without 4K support

On November 10th, Xbox heralds a new generation of console gaming. Look forward to the most powerful, immersive and compatible next-generation console experience and enjoy the freedom to play with your friends anytime, anywhere. Xbox Series X is the most powerful and compatible Xbox ever, according to Microsoft.

With Xbox Series S, the smallest Xbox console to date joins the console family and offers everything that belongs to the next generation of gaming. The features are impressive: Xbox Series S is - just like Xbox Series X - powered by the Xbox Velocity Architecture and also supports faster loading times and quick resume. The console also has the same next-gen features as Xbox Series X, including HDMI 2.1, frame rates of up to 120 frames per second, DirectX ray tracing, variable rate shading and spatial sound - including Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision via video Streaming offers such as Disney + and Netflix.

So if you can do without 4K support or do not own or want to buy a suitable TV set anyway, you will get an extremely good deal with the Xbox Series S.
