According to Windows Central, it was known that the company will be launching both the Series X and Series S on November 10th, with the previously announced high-end Series X selling for $499. Moreover, looking at the image shared by the Xbox team shows a large black grill on the body of Xbox Series S. No disc-inserting slot was spotted on the console, suggesting that the Xbox Series S would be a digital-only edition. The Xbox Series S will also come with a white controller.
The Series S is said to come with a $25 (roughly Rs. 1,800) per month Xbox All Access financing option while the Series X is said to come with a $35 (roughly 2,500) per month plan in the US. The Xbox Series X is also tipped to be priced at $499 (roughly Rs. 36,800).
As the next-generation of consoles approaches, Microsoft has been stressing new products such as Xbox Game Pass, which allows access to a host of downloadable games for a monthly fee. The disc drive will also presumably be a way of pushing those memberships. However, the company did not give any information on any other changes from the Xbox Series X, or how it can be so much cheaper than the rumored price of the more premium version.
