Hours after the Microsoft Xbox Series S console was leaked, the company has stepped in to confirm its existence. In a tweet, Microsoft described the S Series as offering “next-gen performance in the smallest Xbox ever” and listed the price as a previously leaked figure of $299.
In the UK it’ll cost £249.99. It’s coming November 10th, the company revealed in a new trailer later in the day.
The accompanying image gives a better look at the Series S than the first leaked picture, showing off how thin it is and confirming the lack of a disc drive. As with the leaked imagery, the Series S is pictured standing upright, but the orientation of the Xbox logo suggests it’s expected to be more commonly used in a traditionally horizontal configuration.
That’s about all for the announcement right now — Microsoft says it will share more information “soon.”
Later in the day, the company shared this trailer:
- The Witcher 3 gets free next-gen upgrades for the PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC
- How to avoid paying twice Call of Duty’s PS5 and Xbox Series X upgrades
- Forza Horizon 4, Gears 5, Ori, Sea of Thieves, and Gears Tactics get upgraded Xbox Series X
- Xbox Series X can play all Xbox One games, except they use Kinect
Windows Central reports that both the Series X and Series S will launch on November 10th, with the previously announced high-end Series X selling for $499. The Series S (codenamed Lockhart) is designed to play next-gen games in a smaller, cheaper package with less GPU power and lower resolution output than the Series X.
