The Xbox One Series S Launch Date is Official: November 10 at $299

The price and the release date is here at last.

Microsoft's reveal of the Xbox Series S doesn't seem to have gone as planned, but now the company's forging ahead with more details anyway. A leaked reveal trailer for the Xbox Series S is now official, setting the console's release for November 10.

The trailer, which made its way to Twitter earlier today, can now be found on the official Xbox YouTube channel. This serves to confirm some details about the new, less powerful and all-digital counterpart to the Xbox Series X: it's nearly 60% smaller than the Series X, shares the same Velocity Architecture with a smaller 512 GB SSD, can push up to 120 FPS at 1440p, and supports next-gen graphical features like DirectX ray tracing and variable rate shading.

Thurrott reported these details yesterday following the original leak. They're more-or-less in line with what we've been hearing about the console, codenamed Lockhart, since last year.

Windows Central reports that November 10 will also be the release date for the Xbox Series X and that Microsoft will set its price at $499. Microsoft has yet to confirm anything about the Xbox Series X's price and exact release date—it hasn't said anything about the X at all since the late-night Xbox Series S reveal—but we do know it's set to launch in November.

With word of a PS5 announcement coming from Sony soon, it may not be long until we know exactly when all the next-gen consoles are coming, what they'll cost, and when people can place their orders. Microsoft's leading the charge at the moment, and with a price and date now set for the Series S, surely it won't be long until it pins down the same details for its Series X flagship.
