- Microsoft has announced that the Xbox Series S will launch on November 10th for $299.
- The Xbox Series S has a similar CPU to the Xbox Series X, but a less powerful GPU, less RAM, and a smaller hard drive, which means that it won’t play games in 4K.
- With just 10GB of RAM, the Xbox Series S seemingly won’t be able to play the 4K versions of Xbox One and Xbox 360 games that the Xbox One X could play.
Microsoft dominated headlines this week with several major next-generation Xbox announcements, but the one that has garnered the most attention is the price of the Xbox Series S. Microsoft is going to launch a next-gen console on November 10th for $299, which is $100 less than the PS4 was at launch and $200 cheaper than the Xbox One. This affordable console may well give Microsoft a fighting chance after the PS4 trounced the Xbox One for seven years, but its surprisingly low price tag does come with a few caveats that you should be aware of.
