Update (Tue 8th Sep, 2020 17:45 BST): Microsoft has made it official - the Xbox Series S is now confirmed to be releasing for £249.99 in the UK, $299.99 in the U.S. and €299.99 in many European regions.
In addition, the company has also revealed the official trailer for the console that leaked earlier this morning (you can watch it above), as well as confirming that the system will be released on Tuesday, November 10th.
Original article (Tue 8th Sep, 2020 03:30 BST): Although we're still waiting for an official reveal from team Xbox, Microsoft insider Brad Sams is believed to have just shared a "first look" at the Xbox Series S, code-named 'Lockhart'. It will apparently retail for $299 USD.
According to Sams, this "was posted to the internet earlier today" and includes "a still that has leaked from some sort of promotional video".
In a reply tweet, Windows Central editor Jez Corden said he was able to confirm there would be no disc drive in the Xbox Series S. Apart from the image, the only other information Brad Sams provided was that the system will apparently be announced "very, very soon" and "maybe as early as this week".
Corden and his colleague Zac Bowden, later on, backed up the price of the Xbox Series S with Windows Central's own sources, and also noted how the "more powerful" Xbox Series X would cost $499 - with both systems apparently launching on 10th November this year. Keep in mind, this hasn't been officially confirmed by Microsoft yet.
"We can confirm via our sources that the entry-level Xbox Series S will cost $299 at retail, with a $25 per month Xbox All Access financing option, which Microsoft is planning to push hard via various retailers and a large global roll out. The more powerful Xbox Series X will cost $499, with a $35 per month Xbox All Access financing option. Both consoles will launch on November 10, 2020."
