Xbox Series S Has Been Officially Confirmed; Priced at $299, Coming November 10 [Update]

The Xbox Series S leaks were real it seems.

September 8, 2020

Update: The original reporting on this article had a £ sign in the headline. The Xbox Series S is priced at $299, and a new announcement from Xbox UK has priced the console at £249.99.

Update 2: Microsoft has released an updated version of its reveal trailer for the Series S and confirmed that the system will be launching on November 10, 2020.

Following a load of leaks last night that reportedly revealed the upcoming Xbox Series S along with prices also being leaked, Xbox has now officially revealed the smaller, budget version of the next-generation console and its price.

Yesterday, we saw the design and price for the Xbox Series S through a series of leaks through what looked like a promotional video showing a far smaller Xbox design next to the chunky Xbox Series X. The case, shown in a sleek white and with a large black grill on its one side certainly looks pretty, and it also appears to be all-digital with no disc drive present in the marketing image you can find below..

Xbox hasn’t revealed anything else other than the official marketing material and the price. But we do know that for $299 (ERP) players can apparently expect next-generation performance in the “smallest Xbox ever.” There’s also the official Series S logo in the bottom right of the image.

It’s certainly no lie that the leak pushed Xbox to make the announcement following a fun tweet earlier this morning of people at the company noticing the leaks that circulated last night.

More details will be apparently shared soon, and I wouldn’t be surprised if those details are revealed later today or at some point this week through an official Xbox Wire blog post.

Also following in the footsteps of the leaks, Windows Central reported on the Xbox consoles and confirmed that apparently the Xbox Series X is priced at $499. Additionally, it’s noted that the consoles are to launch on November 10, 2020. These confirmations come from sources to the outlet and detail that the Series S release will also cost $25 a month if paying with Xbox All Access financing.

The Xbox Series X will apparently cost $499 for $35 a month with the same financing option, of course, the Series X details have not yet been officially confirmed.
