Next Gen Xbox Consoles To Launch November 10: Leak
Microsoft’s next-gen Xbox Series X and its smaller counterpart, the Series S, will reportedly release on November 10.
According to a leak reported by Windows Central, the Series X will retail for $499 USD ($685 AUD) and the Series S for $299 USD (just north of $400 AUD). Xbox All Access financing plans will be available for both consoles, at $25 USD/month for the Series S and $35 USD/month for the Series X.
A picture purported to be of the Xbox Series S has also leaked.
In the new image revealed by Brad Sams, the Series S appears to have a large vent, and be closer in profile to the current-generation Xbox One than to the larger Series X. No disc drive is visible in the image, which would position the Series S to take on Sony’s PS5 Digital Edition.
The Series S has not yet been officially confirmed by Microsoft; however, it was listed on leaked packaging from a next-gen Xbox controller last month.
Rumoured specifications indicate that the Series S, codenamed “Lockhart”, will have 7.5GB of RAM, be capable of 1080p and 1440p gaming, and feature a lower-performance CPU and underclocked CPU compared to the flagship Series X.
