Despite the lack of a physical media player, the next-gen console offers better value for money for those who don’t own a video game.
Xbox Series S is Microsoft’s most modest and cheapest device of the new generation. Yes, it has less firepower than the Xbox Series X, but it won’t disappoint the player. If you still have doubts, Submarino offers you four good reasons to invest in the Series S as your new Black Friday video game.
1- Design & Size
Xbox Series S is the smallest video game ever released by Microsoft. Basically a white box with a black circle on the side where the air vent is located, it measures 27.5 x 15.1 x 6.5cm and weighs 1.9kg.
Due to its compact size, it can easily fit on desktops or bookshelves and be placed vertically or horizontally, without sacrificing hardware cooling.
Xbox Series S does not have a physical media player, so the player is limited to online game purchases and the Xbox Game Pass library.
It has 512 GB SSD storage, 4 teraflops of processing power, 10 GB of RAM, 1440p native resolution to play games (so-called QuadHD) at up to 120 frames per second (FPS) and watch movies and series in Ultra HD 4K resolution When available on streaming services.
Expandable with a specially designed external SSD, SSD storage allows for fast resumes, with faster load times, and gamers can quickly switch between open games.
These specifications make Xbox Series S compatible with next-generation games, with ultra-fast response times and advanced graphics with Ray-Tracing effects (more realistic shadows, lights, and reflections).
However, they are more modest specs than the Xbox Series X, more than enough for a good experience for users who don’t expect 4K resolution on their smart TVs and monitors.
3- The game library
Xbox Series S can play all of Microsoft’s next-generation games and exclusive franchises, even if there is some loss in performance or graphics quality compared to Xbox Series X. Xbox One and Xbox 360 via version compatibility previously.
This includes titles from Xbox Game Pass, Microsoft’s subscription service that offers more than 100 downloadable and playable titles, including classics, next-gen releases, and cross-platform games. The catalog rotates and new games are added every month.
Xbox Series S/X has many top titles like Forza Horizon 5, Halo Infinite, Gears 5, Psychonauts 2, Sea of Thieves, Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Microsoft Flight Simulator and more. The consoles continue to be compatible with the greatest hits released for the entire new generation, such as Elden Ring, FIFA 23, Control, F1 2022, Saints Row, Gotham Knights, Resident Evil 2 and 3 Remake, among many others.
4- Price & Availability
Currently, the Xbox Series S is the easiest next-gen console to find in stores. Due to the shortage of electronic chips, the availability of Xbox Series X and Playstation 5 is even less at retail.
And its price is another advantage: the value suggested by Microsoft is R$2,649, but it can be found at Submarino for around R$2,200.
