Xbox Series S officially revealed, Series X pricing to follow

Xbox Series S

After images of the console leaked earlier today, Xbox has confirmed the existence of the Xbox Series S.

Series S is a smaller, less powerful, budget-priced version of the Xbox Series X hardware arriving later this year. The Series S will set you back USD $299. As this story was being prepared, Xbox UK announced British pricing at £249.99. No Australian pricing has been confirmed at the time of writing, but we’ll update this story when we have it.

The pairing of higher- and lower-powered models, and its naming convention, follow the structure established by the Xbox One S and Xbox One X.

When images of the console, along with likely pricing, leaked online today, Xbox initially played it coy.

This was followed by about an hour of radio silence before it made things official:

Xbox has not currently revealed any further information on Series X‘s release or pricing, but word is expected to come through in the next few days.
