UPDATE: Microsoft confirmed the price and specs of the new Xbox Series S console this morning. It will be $299 with all the features listed below. The Series S is designed to play Next-Gen games in a more cost-effective package. As for the report below, we don’t have confirmation on the release date or price of the Series X model.
The Rumor Mill For The Next-Gen Xbox
The release dates and price points for the upcoming next-gen consoles is still a mystery. According to WindowsCentral, the Series X and S have price points and a release date. The Xbox Series X will cost $499 and the Series S will cost $299. In addition to these details, the consoles will both release November 10th, 2020. This sort of lines up with the release window of other consoles in the past, with Tuesdays being a normal release day. Both consoles will also have a finance plan via Xbox All Access. The Series S will cost $25 a month and the Series X at $35 a month.
The Series S is going to be less powerful and won’t have a disc drive like the more powerful Series X. It won’t be a shabby console for power though. It still boasts 4K resolution and some power under the hood. As you can see from the video above, you can see the size of both consoles in relation to one another.
The Xbox Series X has already been confirmed by Microsoft. According to the source, Microsoft is going to officially announce these details momentarily.
Microsoft did this to pretty decent effect this console generation with the Xbox One X and S. In a similar mode, the X was more powerful, while the S was cheaper and at some points, lacked a disc drive.
As with any rumor, wait until Microsoft officially confirms it to get hyped through the roof. But this is pretty exciting if true.
