Xbox Series X and PS5 have been officially on the market for over a year – but almost sold out. Many players are still waiting for the chance to get one of the coveted Next gene consoles. The alternative is almost close to gripping – but the real console hit of this generation is simply ignored by most players.

XBox Series S: The cheap Next-Gen alternative

Xbox Series X/S All Errors! + forgotten PS5 errors (60fps)
Both Xbox Series X and the PlayStation 5 have almost been sold out since the release at the end of last year. But one of the next-gene consoles can be easily buyed today, because apparently hardly anyone is interested in them: The Xbox Series s. and that, though the console in my eyes is the most interesting and promising device of the new generation. But what fascinates me to Microsoft’s “Light version” of the Xbox Series X? **

The biggest strength of the Xbox Series S is her fabulous value for money. While I have to pack for Xbox Series X and the disc version of the PlayStation 5 equally whopping 500 euros, I get with the Xbox Series S a Next -Gen console for austerity price. Currently one gets you for 290 euros – thus pays almost only half compared to the “big brother” and the competition of Sony.

Sure, the Xbox Series S can not compete powerfully with the Series X – especially when it comes to graphic power. Nevertheless, Microsoft also sets the “Good and Cheap” model on an arrow-fast SSD, Raytracing and the support of 120 Hz. All other important functions of the Xbox Series X can be found again at the Series S. So if you can do without it, that his games in native 4k over the TV flicker, can save money with the Xbox Series S.

For casual players who do not have to play everything directly to the release, the console is even twice interesting. Because thanks to the Xbox Game Pass for 9.99 euros a month you get access to over 100 different games. So you probably have to play enough for a while. And since the offer is updated in the Game Pass at regular intervals, you also do not run the danger that you really have played everything at some point.

A real eye-catcher!

But not on the data sheet, the Xbox Series S can fully convince in my eyes. Also the body of the many spurned next-gene console makes really something . While the Xbox Series X is quite practiced by its edged design, and fits in almost every living room’s cabin in the world, the design of the PlayStation 5 is in my opinion fully lifted off.

The Xbox Series S is not only much smaller than the other two models, but has almost the optics of a stylized speaker, simple, timeless, chic, thanks to the big “radiator grill” on the side of the console – just, timeless, chic!

But I admit: that’s a matter of taste. There are probably many people who detest the design of the Xbox Series S. I, however, find it absolutely brilliant!

With the Xbox Series S Microsoft offers not only the cheapest entry into the new console generation, but in my opinion also has the most beautiful console in Petto. But even though I look at the Xbox Series S as the most promising console of the new generation, the PlayStation 5 will be in my living room at the end. Maybe with me the trend but sometime goes to the second console – and if that is, then it will definitely become the Xbox Series S.
