Microsoft could not hide from the public the existence of a cheaper version of the Xbox Series X and announced the new game console on its own. In the morning on the official Twitter account of the gaming division of the corporation, a modest post appeared with the official presentation of the Xbox Series S, formerly known under the code name Lockhart.
Microsoft showed a 3D image of the game console, which differs from the “big brother” in the face of the Xbox Series X. The presented Xbox Series S looks similar to the current Xbox One S. The new console has a thinner body in white, a huge ventilation hole for cooling the processor and the lack of a Blu-ray disc tray. Most importantly, the price of the console will be only $ 299 (8,340 hryvnia), which is even cheaper than the most powerful console of the current generation, the Xbox One X.
At the same time, Microsoft did not disclose the internal specifications of the Xbox Series S. Early rumors indicated that the younger console in the lineup will be designed to output video games in 1080-1440p resolution. The console is supposedly equipped with the same AMD Zen 2 processor found in the Xbox Series X, but it will offer a weaker graphics chip with a performance of about 4 teraflops (in the Xbox One X this figure is around 6 teraflops) and a smaller amount of RAM allocated for games – 7 , 5 GB instead of 13.5 GB.

According to the authoritative edition of Windows Central, the launch of the Xbox Series S and the flagship Xbox Series X will take place simultaneously on November 10. The cost of the latter should be $ 499, but Microsoft has not officially announced this information yet.
Well-known industry insider Daniel Ahmad adds that later this month, the platform holder will hold a new presentation, where it is likely that all the information about nextgen-set-top boxes will be announced. There is also expected some important announcement related to Xbox Game Pass, which will dramatically increase the value of the service in the eyes of subscribers.
We will remind that earlier Microsoft dealt a decisive blow in the battle of game consoles in 2020. At the same time, Microsoft stopped producing old game consoles.
