The Xbox Series S is touted as the smallest console coming from Microsoft to date. As a digital-only version of the Xbox Series X, it omits the disc drive and has its size reduced to almost 60% that of Series X while containing a 512 GB SSD inside. It will also support 1440p resolution, 4K upscaling, and 120fps frame rate.

As a comparison, the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition will retail in Japan at 39,980 yen, while the regular PS5 model with a disc drive will be available at 49,980 yen. The price for Xbox Series X remains unchanged in Japan at 49,980 yen. That means the price for Xbox Series S will be 10,000 yen cheaper than the PS5 Digital Edition in Japan.

Xbox Series S, along with its bigger sibling Xbox Series X, will be released on November 10, 2020. It will be available in the West at $299 in the US and £249.99 in the UK. Japan will also get both consoles on the same day as other Tier 1 regions.
