Xbox Series S pre-orders are on their way, and it’s now just a matter of hours before the cheap Xbox hits the shelves for the first wave of early buyers. That means it’s time to prepare for the big day, and with Xbox Series X pre-orders coming in significantly more expensive, there’s going to be some competition out there. The Xbox Series S specs and price were announced earlier this month, and Microsoft seems to have nailed the delicate balance between the two to offer a cheap new Xbox if you don’t care about having a disc drive.

Xbox Series S, previously dubbed ‘Project Lockhart’ will cost $299.99 / £249.99 / AU$499. It’s the cheaper, digital-only alternative to the Xbox Series X. Yes, Microsoft is releasing not one but two next-gen consoles this year. It’s worth noting, however, that certain features like 4K gameplay aren’t available from cheaper Xbox Series S pre-orders, as that lower price tag makes way for less powerful specs in the budget model.
