It’s official – the Xbox Series S will launch later this year for £249.99 / $299.99 in the UK and US respectively. Offering ‘next-gen performance’ in the smallest Xbox ever, the box is sure to provide an attractive entry point for the budget conscious consumer.
Earlier this morning Windows Central leaked the pricing of the Xbox Series S / X alongside release dates:
- Series S will cost $299 (£249.99 in the UK) or $25pm via All Access (monthly payment plan)
- Series X will cost $499 or $35pm via All Access (monthly payment plan)
- Both consoles launch November 10.
Microsoft is yet to confirm the release date or pricing rumours of the Series X, but have confirmed the appearance and pricing of the Xbox Series S. News will apparently be coming soon with more official information.
