While Xbox Series S is not as powerful as the Series X, it has some shared features with Series X, including 120 FPS gameplay, ray-tracing, fast load times, quick resume, and more. The console comes with 512GB storage and 10GB of GDDR6 RAM. The Series S is powered with a GPU that delivers 4 TFLOPS processing power to offer 1440p resolution gameplay at 120 FPS. It also supports Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) on compatible TVs and monitors with HDMI 2.1 slot. While 512GB of storage might not be a lot for gaming, the console supports expandable SSD storage.
The discount on Xbox Series S comes as great news for Xbox players after the company increased its prices for the console as well as the Xbox Series wireless controller. Considering the very limited Xbox Series X stocks in India, Series S is a decent option for players who want to upgrade their console, and play games from Halo and Forza series. Sony has also raised the price of PS5 in certain markets, which fortunately does not include India. It remains to be seen whether the PS5 price increases in the future, considering the company is working on a revamped model.
