Rumors have long been circulating about the existence of the titular console, but Microsoft has yet to publicly acknowledge the existence of the console at any level.
Where the Xbox Series X is the Xbox One X equivalent of the new console generation, the Xbox Series S is the Xbox One S of the upcoming console generation.
For now, Microsoft and Sony have entered the longest game of chicken as they have a stand-off waiting for the other to announce a price to allow one to undercut the other.
However, as the price of the Xbox Series X and the PS5 continues to evade us, we can take comfort in the fact that if the Xbox Series X is out of your budget, the Xbox Series S is a potential entry into the next-generation consoles for you.
While Sony doesn’t have an answer to the mystery console, we can assume that a new console will follow a few years after the launch of the PS5.
