Update: Microsoft has officially confirmed that it would launch the new Xbox Series S pretty soon. Further, the company even confirmed the pricing of the new Xbox console for $299. This would certainly make it the cheapest gaming console for next-gen gaming, even if it skips the 4K experience. The post from Microsoft's official Twitter handle notes that more updates will be following up shortly, which might reveal the features of the new Series.


Microsoft was rumored to be working on a console that came with an affordable price tag. A leak has given us the first peek at the Xbox Series S that carries the codename, Lockhart. The image posted by Thurrott revealed the design of the new Xbox console and its price tag of $299 (around Rs. 22,000).

Xbox Series S Design, Price Tag Revealed

Xbox Series S Design Revealed

The leaked image reveals a white console placed in a vertical orientation, where the design is quite similar to the Xbox One S. It's unclear what the source of these images is, however, another tipster WalkingCat also revealed a short video of the Xbox Series S. This video shows that the Series S is thinner than the Series X, giving users ample room to fit in under TVs.

As per The Verge's report, the new Series S console skips the disc drive. Further, it's reported that the Series S console will feature four teraflops of GPU performance, compared to 12 in the Series X - another upcoming console. Comparisons aside, the Xbox Series S is said to have a boasted CPU and SSD performance, ready to run the next-gen games. However, a drop in GPU means modern titles won't be running in 4K resolution.


Xbox Series S Price Hinted

The most attractive part of the Xbox Series S is its price tag, expected to ship for $299. The console is also rumored to be part of the $25 (Rs. 1,850) Xbox All Access monthly plan that includes Xbox Live and Game Pass. This would make the Series S the most affordable console, an attractive way for Microsoft to win gamers willing to explore the next-gen games without 4K.

With the $25 Xbox Game Pass plan, Microsoft will also be pushing subscriptions to a wide audience. To note, the design skips the disc drive - which explains the subscription plans for the Xbox Series S. Both the Xbox Series S and the Xbox Series X consoles are scheduled to debut on November 10, just ahead of the holidays. For all we know, the consoles might be ticking all the right boxes for gamers.
