How much does the Xbox Series S cost?

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

By contrast, the Xbox Series X sells 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.
