There have long been rumors about two types of Xboxes, with one flagship console and one smaller variant. Now that Microsoft has already revealed the Xbox Series X, it's time for the Xbox Series S.
👀 Let’s make it official! Xbox Series S | Next-gen performance in the ˢᵐᵃˡˡᵉˢᵗ Xbox ever. $299 (ERP). Looking forward to sharing more! Soon. Promise. pic.twitter.com/8wIEpLPVEqSeptember 8, 2020
In a rather unusual fashion, Microsoft revealed the tiny console in a tweet, stating that it's the smallest Xbox ever and that it's coming in at a price of $299. At this time, the company isn't sharing any further details, but that doesn't mean there aren't any.
Leaker WalkingCat dropped a trailer for the Xbox Series X, which details a few key things.

This trailer shows that the Xbox Series S is 60 percent smaller than the Series X, can run 1440p at up to 120 FPS, supports 4K upscaling, DirectX ray-tracing, seamless game-switching, has a 512 GB NVMe SSD, variable refresh rate support, and more. These are all similar characteristics to the bigger Xbox Series X, showing that it really is the big console's little brother.
However, it's important to note that at this time, the trailer is not confirmed as official and the specs might not be true.
As reported by Windows Central, it looks like Microsoft will have a few payment options for the new Xboxes. The publication reports that as an alternative to the $299 retail price, consumers can also opt for a $25/month finance plan for the Xbox Series S, with the Series X going for a $35/month finance plan or retailing at $499.
Both consoles are expected to land in November.
Typically I never store games on the internal storage of any Console
But in anyways , I dont see a market for this in USA or western Europe ..
Maybe in China , Asia , Africa , Eastern Europe , and the Middle east.. because people there are poor.
Wont be a good idea ... new games will take advantage of NVME drives for loading while gaming .. HDD wont do ..
He needs to use SSD external Drive.
It will be $299 ... Xbox does not profit from consoles sales. so expect the cost of the card will be $200 and will be sold for $299
Or for college students who don't have 4K TV or monitor in their room, or for people who don't care the difference between 1440P and 2160P (there are a lot of those people even in rich countries), or for less affluent people in rich countries, there are a lot of those too. OR, it's for the car...
not really , there is a problem with this console , it is the 512 nvme SSD .. compared to its bigger brother with 1TB Nvme thats alone $70 difference for nvme drive ..
so this console is actually $370 .. so saving just $130 is not a huge save anymore .. and looking at the size of the console I dont think it can reach more than 6 Tflops , which is not good with raytracing turned on even on FHD gaming.
