These are exciting days for the gamers among us. Microsoft announced the Xbox Series X and the Xbox Series S earlier this week. Both next consoles can be pre-ordered from September 22nd and will be on store shelves from November 10th. What are the differences between the Series X and the Series S. We list the most important ones.
Xbox Series X vs Xbox Series S.
There are quite a few differences between the two next-gen game consoles. It is not without reason that the Xbox Series S costs 299 euros and you have to pay 499 euros for the Xbox Series X.
What is immediately striking is the size of the two consoles. The Series S is considerably smaller and is fully digital. This means that there is no physical disc drive and that you can only purchase games through the Microsoft Store.
Another disadvantage of the Xbox Series S is the limited storage space of 512GB. Games are getting better and bigger and 512GB is immediately full with a few games. The Series X has twice the storage space, 1TB.
The Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X do not differ much from each other in terms of computing power. The big difference is the graphics processing power. Games will soon run on a Series S at maximum 1440p resolution, and Series X at 4K resolution.
You will soon be able to play the same games on both consoles. Only games look much better on the Xbox Series X than the Xbox Series S.
I don't mind that the Xbox Series S can only play digital games. I buy more digital games than physical CDs. I personally think that the price should not determine your choice either, because you will use it for at least 5 years before a new Xbox comes.
What I find very important is the graphic aspect. With 4K resolution, the Xbox Series X is more future-proof for the generation of games that will succeed the current one. New televisions nowadays are also all at least 4K resolution.
