Microsoft and Sony, both have new video game consoles coming for this holiday season 2020, though Sony has not yet reviled a date or price for its PlayStation 5
Microsoft Xbox Series S console is coming Nov. 10 for $299.
Following a series of leaks, the software giant Microsoft confirmed the next-generation videogame console in an official launch trailer on Tuesday.
Microsoft did not release any specs for the Xbox Series S, but Series S expected to share the same CPU as the Series X console, which comes with ray tracing, a lighting enhancement to make games look more realistic. Microsoft has not released a release date or pricing for Series X.
The Microsoft digital version (without Blu-ray disc drive) Xbox Series S is designed for new games. In a video posted on Twitter Tuesday, Microsoft says the Series S will be 60% smaller than Series X.
The Series S is expected to come with a 512 GB solid-state drive. Microsoft has said the Series X system will feature a 1TB expansion port and a wireless controller.
To offset limited storage, Xbox Series S will likely include the same removable storage port found on the larger Xbox Series X, according to several gaming reports. (Microsoft isn’t using a disc drive in the Xbox Series S.)
Microsoft and Sony both have new video game consoles arriving this holiday season, though Sony has not offered a date or price for its PlayStation 5. Analysts expect the PS5 and Xbox Series X systems to be priced at about $499.
