Game News (XS) XBox Series News

This week has been a rather busy week especially for everything Microsoft and their next-gen system the XBox Series X/S

We now have several pictures of the XBox Series X and XBox Series S thanks to several outlets now getting their hands on some official mockup units.

The official tech specs have also been officially released and of course we now know that November 10th 2020 is when both the XBox Series X and XBox Series S will be released.

Okay well lets begin this article with talking about the XBox Series S which only just got announced this week, whereas with the XBox Series X we have known about for quite some time now.

The XBox Series S is actually a smaller model of the XBox Series X and is priced to reflect this too. Also, don’t worry about the names as we too get confused and often mix-up the XBox Series X and S and M-N-L-O-Ps too (that latter part is a joke, there is only two variations of the XBox Series, at least for now anyway)

Anyway known as the ‘Next gen performance in the smallest XBox ever’, the comparison pictures below will no doubt prove it too.

The technical specs or technical specifications also reflect this, lets check just what the XBox Series S will actually feature and compare it to the XBox Series X

As previously said before some outlets have now managed to get their hands on some mockup units of both the XBox Series X and XBox Series S. Mockup units are basically boxes that replicate the size and shape of the actual system but does not include any actual components. Below are several pictures of the mockup boxes / mockup units.
