    S stock is hardly move, I think we should see $350 deal very soon.

    •  

      As a secondary room console to compliment my Series X, $350 might be okay. The storage size is too small for a primary console.

      • +3 votes

        if you need to upgrade the Series S SDD
        storage is very expensive
        and will end up costing as much as Series X (but will always be less powerful)

        •  

          I added a 1tb external ssd to my series s and copy x/s games across that im not playing atm and also play 360 and xb one games from it.

            •  

              @pinkybrain: Yes I understood what you meant I just commented with another solution.

              • -2 votes

                @ausbob71: but that is not really a true solution..
                which in my comment context was about the upgrading the internal SSD when it runs out.

                most people who owned previous xbox already know you can move game data to external SSD from previous xbox generation..
                it still does not solve the problem of the internal SSD being only being 500GB (and actual free space is much less)

                The actual free space/size of the series S internal SSD is actually 364GB
                That's all you really got for all your games installation which is not a lot.. considering games can be 50GB to 100GB..

                https://www.google.com/search?q=how+much+space+free+on+xbox+...

                You can't play your xbox next gen games on external SSD, only can be played on internal SSD or Xbox expansion card.

                If you need to buy an expansion card, it will cost the same as Series X but will always be much less powerful..

                •  

                  @pinkybrain: How many next generation games do you want to play at the same time? Just delete or move games when you are done playing. I guess I am just a casual gamer nowadays so for me it's not that big of an issue.

                  • -2 votes

                    @ausbob71:

                    How many next generation games do you want to play at the same time?

                    how long is a piece of string?

                    You are missing the point here..

                    Just delete or move games when you are done playing

                    You are missing the point here..

                    Many games don't just finish that quickly
                    Some games could take ages..e.g, GTA, Final fantasy etc..

                    It is about
                    -not wasting time needing to move data from internal ssd to external ssd then back
                    -you also need to pay for an external SSD which further adds up in cost to your so called cheap series S.
                    -some levels you might be stuck on for a while before you can advance further
                    -convenience of being able play quite long games but still being able to try newer games..
                    -a small 364 GB of storage ain't going cut it nowadays with how big many next gen games are..

                    Your answer is equivalent to saying 4GB of ram is more than enough to run windows..
                    Sure it could but it means I can't do much else except run 1 app at a time
                    or run chrome with just 1 tab.

                    Also that series S mean you have to make compromises in how the games would look or play
                    Essentially you aren't going to be able to play the game with how the devs intended it to look..
                    You need to turn off many stuff and play at lower resolution to just to get a decent frame rate..
                    or might not even be able to play the game at all..

                    Just look at what happened with cyberpunk 2077…

                    If you have more then you can have the ability to do more.

    Not a bad deal but it might be worth waiting to see if anything happens on Amazon prime day

  • +3 votes

    The Xbox online store is always generally more expensive than retail, so it's not all about cost savings when getting a Series S. Wait for the X instead when stock comes back.

      S is only suitable for players using it as an extra Games Pass system.

      • +1 vote

        Agree, that's pretty much what I grabbed one for.

    If budget is a priority, the Series S and Game Pass is the best deal going on.

    Is getting discounted by the week.

  • +15 votes

    I bought the series s and it's awesome, with game pass you have a next gen console at fraction of the price. Storage doesn't bother me at all. When i finish the game i just delete it, with nbn 100 a 50gb game downloads in 1 hour while the console is off which is great.

  •  

    If nobody is buying the series s, the price will probably drop again

    when is Xbox E coming out? or they going for XBOX Y for Pro in few yrs?

    •  

      Xbox Series Emoji

    •  

      There was a little-known Xbox 360 E!

      •  

        E will in the middle of S and X without drive
        Y will be Pro

        •  

          Xbox - the Tesla of consoles

    •  

      They had the Xbox 360 E if that counts lol.

  •  

    Was about to pull the plug and grab one to play new gen games but the news of xcloud coming to Xbox One kinda put me off. My XOX gonna keep getting more love

  •  

    If this hits 350 by year's end I think I'll grab one and sell my Series X for as much as I can get. This is too good a deal.

    • +6 votes

      The deal decays the further into this gen we traverse. The Series S already buckles under the weight of last gen titles. Metro Exodus Enhanced runs at flawed 520p with egregious pop-in. The disparity only gets worse from here.

      •  

        Eh. I got a 65 inch 4k HDR fancy pants TV (not really, it's a kogan) for the series x, and honestly I find games look the same most of the time, sometimes even better, on the missus' 55 inch 1080 Samsung from a few years ago, on the old one S.

        If I had a better tv maybe but I don't think the visuals of the x are that much worth it if your tv isnt top of the line.

      •  

        This is a bit of an unfair comment, and I suggest next time you give the complete details of your 'statement'.

        It can dip as low as 512p at times when the console is targeting 60fps with ray tracing enabled. Most of the time it runs just under 1080p with 60fps and ray tracing enabled, which for a Metro game, isn't as bad as you are making it sound.

        • +1 vote

          "Most of the time it runs just under 1080p …isn't as bad as you are making it sound."

          According to DF entire zones run at 512p on the Series S. It's only when there's no action on screen that it can climb to 864p. Point taken about it being worse case scenario though.

    •  

      You have more than 500GB space left on your internal SSD storage?

      •  

        I have a tonne of games I'll never play installed since launch is what I have.

        But also until about March(ish) last year I got by fine with a 500gb OG Xbox One. Of course also the last phone I bought was a 8gb IPhone 5c a month or so back so I'm pretty good at this storage management stuff.

    If you buy it on Amazon and use the cash back it becomes $398.97

        Unless there is a promo I'm missing for Prime or something, the cashback rate of 7% only applies to some categories. Video games and electronics have a 0% cashback rate currently listed on CashRewards.

    If MS bring in a decent family option for game pass ultimate so two of us can be on using the same sub on different consoles (at the Same time) and this was another $50 cheaper I’d def bite …

    •  

      You already can. I have my account setup on the missus' Xbox set to the home console so she can run everything via her account and mine at home I can do everything on my account.

      Can't play something in 2 places on the same account but sharing has been a thing for years and costs no extra. Pretty well the same same situation on PS4 and switch as well.

      •  

        second part of your comment is what MS is working on with family sharing, and that is what i'm referring to, i already have it setup on old xbone, xbox sx and pc however (pc aside) as you said you cant play something on 2 places with same account… hopefully at some point they have something similar to the O365 family sharing for game pass ultimate.

        •  

          Why would you want to use the same account on multiple systems? Are you trying to avoid buying multiple copies of games? If you were both using the same account and the same game as the same time, how would saves work?

          •  

            @sallan75: You can have extra 'users' per xbox (psuedo family set up) , say I'm playing halo on one and my son wants to play battlefield on the other, in a family sub that MS is looking at we are all under the same sub and can do this at the same time, currently this isn't possible… This family thing obviously will cost more but would work well to sell multiple xbox hardware

  •  

    These are awesome for kids or second console on 1080P TV to use with game pass.

    I wouldn't bother as primary console for an adult as no physical media and struggles with bigger games.

  •  

    I wonder how FS2020 would run on it? Would be a good gift for me da.

    • +2 votes

      Not good. A number of series games are dynamically scaling from 500p to 900p so it can get blurry. It will be missing a lot of graphical effects too.

      • +1 vote

        Oh that sucks. Apparently the series X can do 4k at 30fps according to the trailer. Might have to get that one then.

        Probably just wait till it gets released and then watch some reviews.

        • +1 vote

          The performance scaling between them is such that if you're getting 4k on Series X, you'd expect somewhere from 1080p-1200pish on Series S. I would assume they'll cap it at 1080p for simplicity.

          I'm not sure if they've actually announced series S resolution. The games where Series S looks super blurry (Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition) have the Series X only pulling something like 1080p at the same time, so those are very much outliers.

  •  

    You can also run retroarch on these things pretty easily.

  • +1 vote

    This is best suited for gamepass and those without 4k tv's. Otherwise, i'd try and get a X instead as being able to buy used games/sell their discs. That would allow you to more than make up the difference over 6 years and that's without considering the extra storage/more power. Good example is COD which is never available at cheap pricing.

    •  

      By the time you buy the overpriced storage upgrade card for the S you may as well just bought an X which comes with 1TB as standard.

      •  

        and the X will always be more powerful

    I'm not a gamer but curious on who would be spending this much now and why.

    I know the new one is very hard to find and double the price, but still seems odd to me.

    •  

      I'll give my reason for getting one. I bought one (making it my third).

      First 2 were for the kids for Christmas last year. Theyre fantastic machines so I had a high opinion of them.

      The one i ordered from this deal is to add to my gaming desk setup on a 34inch computer monitor. Been a few occassions were I wanted to play an Xbox game (ie. Racing game, tony hawk etc.) at the desk while watching the TV beside it. This price is impulse buy territory for something I regular think I wish i could play this while watching this kinda thing.

      I have a Series X on the TV in the living room. But its a 75inch screen and gets all my attention on that. But its rare i actually want to give all my attention to a game.

    •  

      The price is not related to that. Double price? I guess you are taking about PS5 or XBOX series X. That is a discount price from the retail price.

      It is a new Gen.
      Even though the specs are inferior to series X, I think the price is good.

      If you buy a PC or Laptop to play a game which can be run on Xbox series s, you would pay almost double.

      With gamepass, it is a good choice for a light gamer.

    •  

      You've probably mistaken this as the old version but this was relased the same date as the latest gen Xbox Series X.

      •  

        Thank you I had no idea. I realised the PS5 had a version with no optical drive but it’s only marginally cheaper. This is half the price for current gen, awesome! I understand now.

        •  

          Ps5 is same specs minus the optical drive I believe. Whilst the series has less storage, no optical and a weaker GPU.

          Still weighing up grabbing one though.

  •  

    The lack of a disk drive is the biggest thing stopping me from pulling the trigger. We use our Xbox One S as a 4K Blu-ray player frequently enough that I would miss that functionality.

    • +2 votes

      I had the same issue with getting a Series S.
      Having had both a Series S (spare room) and Series X (lounge room) for about 6 months now I find that I really don't use the disc drive on my Series X very frequently (I don't watch movies).
      90% of what I play is on GamePass (so no disc anyway) and it's convenient to be able switch between games without having to change discs.
      I was previously a violent objector to digital-only gaming because I could often get the same game much cheaper physically and lend/resell my physical games.
      I think GamePass is digital-only gaming done right. I spend WAY less on games than I used to and I know I can game online with my mates who also have GamePass (I never used to game online).

  •  

    i was new to console gaming and initially was about to buy series s ( as I have just 1080p tv) but luckily found one digital ps5 in neaby jbhifi and picked it up straight away!

    •  

      They are quite different products.

      The PS5 Digital gives nothing away to the Disc version, however, if like me you haven't experienced GamePass before the Series S is an awesome option.

  • +1 vote

    I nearly bought the S when it came out, because of the superb trade in pices on the one X, but I missed it.
    This is too good to miss, given one-X is selling over $300 on ebay.

    Ebay listing next. sucked in.
