The tech giant Microsoft announced this Tuesday that it will launch the Xbox S in November, a small version of its new range of consoles, at a price of 299 euros. The American company published a video and tweeted about the Xbox S, after the news leaked that the hardware will be part of the new generation of consoles that is expected by the end of this year.
“Let’s make it official,” the Xbox team said in a post on their Twitter account. “The Xbox Series S. Next-gen performance on the smallest Xbox ever,” he added. The console will be officially released on November 10. and is designed for games and software hosted online rather than on the device, according to a promotional video posted online.
The autumn (boreal) was already shaping up to be busy for Microsoft’s video games sector, with the launch of a cloud gaming service and the launch of its next-generation console, the Xbox Series X.
XCloud, the cloud gaming platform, is expected to go live later this month, starting with subscribers to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, Xbox’s subscription game library (console or PC).
As for the new Xbox Series X, its price has not been announced yet, but the US media is talking about a $ 500 launch in November. The PlayStation 5 is expected to come out at the same time. Microsoft hopes to take revenge on Sony, which has sold twice as many PlayStation 4s as Microsoft’s Xboxes in recent years.
