The Xbox Series X is Microsoft’s next home console, coming out this November! However, a little bit ago, a second console, the Xbox Series S, was revealed. While at first, this may seem like just a white version of the Xbox Series X, that statement is wrong. It’s a very different console, with different dimensions, features and more. So in this guide, we go over the Xbox Series S. Let’s begin!
The end of the year is a really popular date to release game consoles, with the exception of the Nintendo Switch from 2017. This is because of the Christmas holiday, and both Sony and Microsoft are planning to release their console around the holidays. The official release date is November 10, 2020, releasing alongside the Xbox Series X.
The Xbox Series X and S both share the same games, so head on over to the Xbox Series X guide for more information.
While it has next gen graphics and details, the actual console will be SUPER small. Smallest one yet. The price is $300, which may seem hefty to a lot of people. Despite this, it’s actually one of the cheapest consoles coming to the market. The Nintendo Switch is slightly expensive nowadays and the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 are both priced at $500 at launch. If anything, this is the best console you can get this Christmas, but it depends if you’re a Sony or Microsoft fanboy.

One of the most annoying parts of Xbox consoles was the fact that your game started all over again when you unintentionally switched to a new title. Well, it seems like that’s no more. With resume playing, you can switch from title to title to title to title without any long loading screens. Yes, you can indeed go from riding your horse in Red Dead Redemption 2 to Microsoft Flight Simulator to YouTube to Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and get back to your horse afterwards. It’s that simple, however, it will only be for digital games and not physical ones.
