Xbox Series S review: The console making next-gen gaming more affordable


Microsoft’s simplified, streamlined Xbox experience is just as good — for most people — on its cheaper console.

This year’s crop of next-gen consoles have an advantage over the previous generation: more versions at launch with a wider range of prices, starting with the $300 (£250, AU$499) Xbox Series S. And if you think saving $100-$200 isn’t a big deal for a lot of people, you haven’t been paying attention to 2020.

When the PS4 and Xbox One were released back in 2013, the PS4 cost $400, while the Xbox One cost $500. This holiday season, you’ll have the option of a $300 Xbox Series S, a $400 “digital” PS5 (without an optical drive) and $500 versions of the PS5 and Xbox Series X.
