Xbox Series S 1TB Version Was Created Due To 'Really Consistent Feedback', Says Microsoft

The new version of the Xbox Series S arrives this September in the form of the "Carbon Black" variant, which will include 1TB of storage rather than the original 512GB, and the reason for its existence has been attributed to heavy demand.

Speaking to CNN recently, Xbox's Sarah Bond explained that the team had received "really consistent feedback" over the desire for a Series S with more storage, as well as an alternative colour:

"We just got really consistent player feedback that this is something that they wanted. People loved the black [of the Series X], people wanted more storage, but people liked the size and the great portability of the Series S."

The Carbon Black Xbox Series S will cost $50 more than the white version when it launches in a few months' time, bringing it up to £299 / $349. Some Xbox fans have suggested it's worth paying just a little extra for an Xbox Series X instead — although that was before the Series X was revealed to be getting a price increase in certain countries.

Ultimately, we think it's great to have the choice between the 512GB and 1TB versions of the Xbox Series S, and it'll be fascinating to see just how well the new variant sells when it hits the market later this year.
