[UPDATE: We now have official confirmation that the Xbox Series S will indeed be priced at $299, along with a trailer. The original article follows.]
With Microsoft keeping mum on the existence of the Xbox Series S, the console was bound to get leaked somehow. Well, it seems like exactly that has happened.
Brad Sams has now shared extensive details regarding the secret console including the final design and a price point. He claims that the price point might still shift, but the design won’t. Here’s a look at the Xbox Series S:
That’s not all though, as another tipster @_h0x0d_ on Twitter has also shared a render comparing the two consoles. As we previously suspected, the Xbox Series S will be slightly smaller than the Series X, as it is after all a less powerful console.
To add fuel to the fire, the official Xbox twitter account posted the following after the leaks, seemingly confirming that that the leak is indeed real.
Window Central is now reporting that the Xbox Series S will cost $299 (Rs.21,990), and the Series X will be $499 (Rs. 36,690). Both consoles will launch on November 10, with them also launching in the Xbox All-Access program, bringing the price even further down. Xbox All-Access is a subscription program where you can get the console along with a Game Pass (and xCloud) subscription for a low monthly fee. According to sources at Windows Central, the Xbox Series S will cost $25 per month, while the Series X will be $35 per month.
Microsoft is reportedly going to expand the program to other countries with the console launch, which will be certainly beneficial for countries like India where the cost of entry to gaming is significantly higher than the US. We expect an official announcement from Xbox soon regarding the Series S and launch titles, aside from the ones revealed at the Xbox Games Showcase.
