So there’s been a leak precipitating a new announcement of the Xbox Series S. We know that it’s an all digital box, very small (frankly awful looking), and comes in at $299. There are some meaningless additional statistics like that it will run at 1440p and 120fps but it’s unclear whether it has the same hardware specs as the Xbox Series X or not. It will use the same proprietary SSD cartridges as the series X, which is not something I’m enthused about.
I have mixed feelings. But at this price it falls in the range of something I would consider to upgrade my current Xbox. It also suggests we will see the series X pricing higher - likely $400-500
