Xbox Series S, and the Xbox Series X.
- Both consoles play the same games, but the latter is far more powerful — and far more expensive: The
XboxSeries X will cost $500 when it launches on November 10.
- In order to offset the high price, Microsoft is offering a financing plan that starts at $25 per month and comes with access to the company's "Netflix of
gaming" service, Xbox Game Pass.
This holiday season, Microsoft is launching two new, next-gen Xbox consoles: The Xbox Series S, and the Xbox Series X.
Both consoles are scheduled to arrive on November 10, and both are capable of playing next-gen Xbox games — but that's where the similarities end.Among the most stark differences is in pricing, which Microsoft finally revealed on Wednesday morning: The Xbox Series S costs $300, while the Xbox Series X costs $500.
Though many of the specs are similar, a quick look at the "GPU Power" section demonstrates what those respective specs are capable of producing: About 4 TFLOPS ("teraflops") on the Xbox Series S, and over 12 on the Xbox Series X.The more expensive and more powerful Xbox Series X will produce the same games with higher fidelity visuals. It also comes with a larger amount of internal storage, at 1 TB to the 512 GB found in the Xbox Series S.
When the new Xbox consoles launch on November 10, they'll cost $300 and $500, respectively, but they'll also be available through a monthly financing plan."Xbox Series S will be available starting from $24.99 a month for 24 months," Microsoft said in its announcement, "and Xbox Series X will be available starting from $34.99 a month for 24 months." Those prices include a subscription to Microsoft's "Netflix for gaming" service,
