Microsoft revealed the new 1TB Xbox Series S console at the Xbox Games Showcase, scheduled for release on September 1. The console will cost $349 (or regional equivalent).
The console also inverts the standard Xbox Series S color scheme as well as doubling the internal storage, which means you’ll have much more room for some of the best Xbox Series X games available on Xbox Game Pass. It’ll cost you $50 more than the standard model, so if you’re quickly running out of room for more software, this upgrade could be worthwhile for you.
Ditching the all-white aesthetic of the original Xbox Series S system makes sense as it matches the Xbox Series X system. This is appreciated by those who want to keep their gaming setup consistent, and means a machine with a smaller form factor could be even more powerful in 2023 The full trailer below shows the hardware in all its glory.
What made the Xbox Series S a hit over its bigger siblings is its lower price and smaller size. It’s worth noting that the sleeker system only runs at 1440p, not 4K (2160p), so you’re getting about half of the total screen resolution. That said, it’ll still pair well with one of the best monitors for the Xbox Series X, especially if you opt for a 1440p (QHD) high refresh rate panel to really see what the console is capable of. You should also consider that many Xbox Series X games run natively at 1440p before upscaling, so you don’t always lose too much visual fidelity.
