Xbox Series S console UK price confirmed as £250 as release date leaks

Update:



Microsoft has announced the UK price and it’s actually lower than expected, in what may be the most decisive blow so far in the next gen console war.



It’s still more than a direct conversion from the US price of $299, which works out at £228, but given UK exchange rates and taxes a price of £299 or more would not have been a surprise.

This suggests that Microsoft will make a loss on the console, in the UK at least, with a price point that Sony will likely find very difficult to match.



Original story:



As if there was any real doubt, the Xbox Series S has been confirmed as real after a short video and details of its pricing leaked.



It’s been obvious for a long while now that the Xbox Series S – a cheaper and smaller version of the Xbox Series X – is real but it’s only now that Microsoft has given in and admitted the fact.



At first it did so only with a meme but then later an official announcement was made via Twitter, confirming that the price is $299 (ERP means estimated retail price) and that it’s the smallest Xbox ever.



What it didn’t confirm though is the release date, which Windows Central has suggested is 10 November, for both the Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X.



What is the Xbox Series X price?



According to Windows Central the Xbox Series X will cost $499, with the option to buy it in $35 monthly instalments via Xbox All Access.



The Xbox Series S will apparently also be available via Xbox All Access for $25 per month, and although that’s not officially confirmed Microsoft has certainly talked a lot about All Access before – so it’s very believable.



No UK price has been announced yet, or leaked, but the best guess is that it’ll be the same numerical value, i.e. around £499 for the Xbox Series X and £299 for the Xbox Series S.



There’s a lot of factors that could influence the UK price though, so take that as more of a ballpark figure.

What is the Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X release date?



Unlike Sony, Microsoft has previously said that the Xbox Series X will be released in November – so a date of 10 November (a Tuesday) is perfectly believable, but it’s not confirmed.



Windows Central are a usually reliable source though and according to them Microsoft will put on an official showcase ‘soon’.



Previous rumours about the Xbox Series S have suggested that it will be able to run games with a similar level of graphical fidelity, including ray-tracing and all the trimmings, but only at 1080p resolution instead of 4K.

That’s not confirmed yet but Windows Central reports something similar, suggesting it will push 4 teraflops instead of 12 teraflops for the Xbox Series X. Which may also mean the Xbox Series S can’t manage 60fps frame rates as easily as its, literally, big brother.



Another important question needing an answer is what Sony’s response to this will be, as they’ve already announced the PlayStation 5 All Digital Edition but, apart from it not having a disc drive, they’ve not said what it will do differently or how much it will cost.
