Microsoft unveiled Xbox Series S, an all-digital next-generation console designed to deliver everything that is core to next-generation gaming – faster load times, higher frame rates, and richer, more dynamic worlds – in its smallest Xbox ever. Joining Xbox Series X, the fastest, most powerful console ever, the next generation of Xbox consoles elevate the way all games look, play and feel.

Xbox Game Pass gets even better for the over 10 million members from 41 countries worldwide.
