From all the recently announced next-gen consoles, the Xbox Series S seems to nail the balance between technical specs and affordability.

For about three hundred bucks you’re able to play the latest and greatest Xbox games in high definition. It’s compact size and sleek finish make it a device to get you set for the next few years of Xbox gaming.

Features

The Xbox Series S is housed in a pretty compact footprint. Since it has no disc reader you’re expected to download your games and videos in digital format. Next to all the newest Xbox titles, the Series S is backwards compatible with older generations of Xbox games, through the Xbox Game Pass subscription.

Xbox Series S vs Series X

The main reason to buy an Xbox Series X over the Series S is storage size and 4K capabilities. While the series S supports playing back video in 4K quality, the Series X has the power on board to actually support full 4K quality for video games.

In addition the Series X has double the storage size, which will come in handy once you decide to store a lot of content and games on your console.
