On 10 November, Microsoft will be launching not one, but two new Xbox consoles. In addition to the gaming powerhouse that is the Xbox Series X, customers will also have the option to buy a lower-cost, all-digital variant dubbed the Xbox Series S.

While less powerful than its bigger brother, the Series S will still be able to play all Xbox Series X games – just like this generation’s Xbox One S compared to the Xbox One X.

With a UK retail price of £249, the Xbox Series S will be about £200 cheaper than the Xbox Series X at launch, making it a great choice for parents and budget-conscious gamers. Here are the sites you need to bookmark.

How much does the Xbox Series S cost?

As mentioned, the Xbox Series S will cost £249 in the UK. We think this is a very attractive price point for what you’re getting.

By contrast, the Xbox Series X will sell for a heftier £450.

Which Xbox should you buy?

If you want the most powerful games console that money can buy, the Xbox Series X is the version to get. If you’re buying for kids or trying to save money, the Series S is arguably a better option.

Brand-agnostic gamers may also want to consider the Sony PlayStation 5, which is expected to launch around the same time as Microsoft’s new consoles.
