No corporate secrets stay hidden for long on the internet. The internet is exploding because of some screenshots that have been floating around allegedly showing Microsoft’s new Xbox Series S. If this information is correct this would be quite a disruption for the game console market. This price point will open up a whole new segment for the gaming industry.
The $299 pricing point of the Series S would make it affordable for a lot of people and still bring the newest technical advances to this game console.
Windows Central says it can confirm the pricing of the Series S to be $299 and that it will also be available for $25 through Xbox All Access financing option.
We need to wait for the official launching event which is scheduled to be held on the 10th of November of 2020 Xbox Event.
