Although there has been a lot of information about the brand new Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S in the past few weeks, it seems that Microsoft’s console has more surprises stored for us related to games.
According to some reports on the net in recent hours, the games on the most powerful console in the world would occupy much more space than the installation space required on Xbox Series S. For example, the size of Sea of Thieves on Xbox Series X would be around 47GB, while on Xbox Series S it is only 17GB, a reduction of at least 64%.
However, the file size reduction does not apply exclusively to the Rare title, but the storage space required for the installation of Gears 5 and Dirt 5 has also been significantly reduced, confirming the previous statements of Ronald, who expected in general smaller file sizes on the cheapest console from the Redmond house.

So while Microsoft has kept its promises, seeing the actual data in terms of how much difference there is between the space required by the same game on both consoles is pretty impressive.
In addition, Jason Ronald himself, director of Xbox program management, spoke in recent months about the functionality of the new Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, which will allow players to selectively uninstall different parts of the games, even if it is a choice reserved for developers, so at the moment it is not clear which and how many titles will support this very interesting features in the immediate future.
While waiting for Microsoft to clarify the matter, we remind you that Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S will officially debut starting tomorrow, November 10, 2020, respectively at the price of $ 499 and $299.
