Microsoft officially unveiled the Xbox Series S, the next-gen budget gaming console. It will only cost you $299 in the U.S. and, according to Microsoft, comes in the “smallest Xbox ever”. Xbox U.K. also confirmed the system will cost £250. The Xbox Series S is launching on November 10th.
The image that previously leaked on September 7th is exactly was the console looks like — it’s a small, white rectangle with no disc drive. A power button, USB port and a sync button for the controller are the only features displayed on the front.
According to a report from Windows Central, the Xbox Series S and the Xbox Series X will be releasing on November 10th, except the Series X will be selling for $499. However, this has yet to be confirmed.
It’s obvious this announcement is a reaction to the leaks, as they planned to reveal the console at a later date. So far, there are minimal details about the Xbox Series S — the full specs have not yet been unveiled.

Windows Central also reported that both the Xbox Series X and Series S will be available through Xbox’s All Access subscription service. The Xbox Series S being set at $25 USD a month and the Series X at $35. Xbox head, Phil Spencer, previously said that All Access is “critical” to their next-gen plans.
