Even if an official announcement is still a long way off, it is now certain that the unveiling of the Xbox Series S is only a matter of time. Some current job postings seem to provide another indication of the low-budget console which is going to be revealed.
So there are still big question marks behind both the specific start date and the price of the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. What is certain, however, is that the new generation of Xbox will be launched in two different versions. On the one hand, we are dealing with the Xbox Series X, which was introduced at the end of last year.
Number two in the league is likely to be the Xbox Series S, which has haunted the rumor mill over the past few months and is probably one of the worst-kept secrets of the video game year 2020. The next reference to the second model of the new console of Xbox was provided by current age ratings from North America and Europe.
The North American Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) lists games that will appear for the new generation of consoles, including the Xbox Series S, which indicates different models of the new Xbox. With the Pan European Game Information (short: PEGI), however, the corresponding games are only listed for the Xbox, which also indicates a product of the family.
According to unconfirmed reports, the Xbox Series S comes with four teraflops of power and aims to display in 1080p to 1440p. In order to keep the price of the system as low as possible, an optical drive was apparently dispensed with. When the official unveiling of the Xbox Series S can be expected is still unclear.
Looks like we might be getting Xbox Series S announcement very soon as the ESRB started listing games that have an Xbox Series X version as Xbox Series suggesting another console is coming from Microsoft. pic.twitter.com/cPr1QU8fGE
