Microsoft unveiled this morning several information that will not go unnoticed since it is the price of one of its next next-gen consoles. The Xbox Series S was therefore announced with a simple tweet from the official Xbox account.

We officially learn that the console is not just a rumor, but also that it will cost $ 299 (or € 299 according to the conversion made on the other prices of consoles) and that it is about “the performance next-gen in the smallest Xbox console “.

The important information is obviously its price because if we still do not officially have the technical characteristics, we can guess two things:

it does not have a Blu-ray player
– it will be less powerful than its big sister the Xbox Series X

The absence of the Blu-ray player is in line with the strategy that the American giant has put in place with the democratization of the Xbox Game Pass. We remember the Xbox One Xbox Series X|S All Digital which was launched in 2019 (it was also the first to unveil this type of console).

The difference in power would allow Xbox to offer two consoles with a real price difference (in any case what we imagine) against the proposal of Sony which may be more limited (between the PlayStation 5 and the PlayStation 5 All Digital).

We remain on speculation on these last points because the only official information is that it will cost $ 299.

At the same time, the console launch video would have been leaked, you can find it in the tweet below.
