The Xbox Series S has proven to be a huge hit for Microsoft this generation, bringing in sales from many consumers who may not have even considered the high-end Series X model. Unfortunately, though, it seems customers located in Brazil will soon have to pay more for this particular unit.
As highlighted by the Brazillian outlet The Enemy, Microsoft has recently confirmed it will be increasing the suggested retail price of the Xbox Series S Robot White 512 GB model in this market:
Microsoft: "In the coming weeks, we will begin to communicate price adjustments for Xbox Series S consoles in Brazil."
According to the source, the cost of this model will apparently jump from R$2000 - R$2500 to R$3,599, which reportedly puts it in the same price bracket as PlayStation 5's digital model in this location. It's also noted how this won't impact the price of the XSS Carbon Black 1 TB model.
The Xbox Series S originally made its debut alongside the Xbox Series X in November 2020 as the "smallest Xbox ever". It comes packed with Xbox's velocity architecture, a custom NVME SSD, HDR, has a resolution of 1440p, and targets up to 120 FPS.
There is no mention of price adjustments in other regions at this point in time, but if there's an update, we'll let you know.
