Overall, the console is a slight step down from the Xbox Series X, but it can still play all of the next-generation Series X games. We loved the performance upgrade on the Xbox One S, its smaller design compared with the Series X, fast loading times thanks to the next-gen SSD and the same AMD Zen 2 CPU as the Series X. It was great value at the original price, and now, at £50 off, it’s almost a no-brainer.
You won’t be able to get 4K visuals, as the top resolution is 1440p, but you will get 120Hz refresh rates on supported games. There’s ray-tracing support too, for access to the next-gen lighting tech. It is a digital-only console, meaning you won’t be able to play disc-based games, but it’s perfect for streaming and downloading titles from Xbox Game Pass.
Our reviewer concluded: “The Xbox Series S is the best next-gen console for anyone on a budget or without a high-end 4K TV, with the added performance power allowing for significantly better graphics than what’s possible with an Xbox One S. However, the stingy 364GB storage capacity is inexcusable for a console lacking a disk drive, making the expensive storage expansion an essential expense.”
