Microsoft made fun of a smaller, cheaper version of the next-generation Xbox Series X console on Tuesday. Called the Xbox Series S, the new device will be Microsoft’s “smallest Xbox ever”, the company said.
The Microsoft Series X is now four times more powerful than the Xbox One X and includes an 8-core AMD Zen 2 processor. Xbox has a better graphics card.. The Xbox Series S is 60% smaller than the Series X and doesn’t have a disk drive, so you’ll have to download or stream all your games.
