If you were planning on buying Microsoft’s next-gen compact console, you might just be tempted by this offer.
Released almost two years ago, the Xbox Series S is a more affordable next-gen console than its big sister, the Series X. If it is less powerful, but also devoid of a disc drive, it still has the advantage of offering a more affordable price, due to reduced production costs. Above all, the absence of this player is not necessarily a bad thing, since you will still have access to a large collection of games with the Xbox Game Pass subscription, or through the Microsoft Store.

Where to buy The
Microsoft Xbox Series S at the best price?
The practicality of dematerialized
The first point that differentiates the Xbox Series X from the Xbox Series S is in their design. If the Series X is massive, the Series S is much more compact and easier to install on a TV stand. This lighter version will therefore be rather discreet, especially with its minimalist all-white look. In addition to this design, the Series S also stands out for its silence and the absence of overheating during gaming sessions.
But what you need to know above all is that the Series S does not include a Blu-Ray player. You will therefore not be able to use your old Xbox games (One, 360) in physical version or play on those that other people have lent you. To launch titles, you will therefore have to go through the Microsoft Store to acquire your games in digital version, or else be a subscriber to Xbox Game Pass, which gives you access to a large game library that continues to grow. Its strong point? All the next AAAs are integrated into the catalog as soon as they are released, and there will be many of them since the takeover of Besthesda and Activision-Blizzard.
Less power, but still premium features
By creating its Xbox Series S, Microsoft wanted to offer a more affordable next-gen console. So some concessions had to be made. The Series S is therefore less powerful than the Series X, with 4 TFlops instead of 12 (remember that this still allows it to be quieter). Regarding the definition, this reference does not offer 4K UHD like its predecessor. Here, we will simply be entitled to Full HD, with a maximum definition of 1440p. The Xbox Series S will therefore be able to run games in 1440p at 60 fps, which is more than enough for casual gamers.
This model still has almost the same AMD Zen 2 processor as its big sister, and offers the same ray tracing functions, managed by an RDNA 2 graphics chip. Add to that a 512 GB SSD, which has the advantage of drastically reduce loading times and ensure fast console launches.
