Anyone who’s been in the market for a new game console since the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S came out is well aware that they’ve been hard to find in stock since launch. Well right now not only can you find an Xbox Series S in stock, but you can also save $20 on it. For a limited time and while supplies last, you can get the all-digital Xbox Series S for $279.99.
Xbox Series S Is in Stock and on Sale
The Xbox Series S is the digital-only model of the latest game console from Microsoft. It can run all the same games the Series X can run, but it does so at a lower resolution, making it a good choice for people who don’t plan on upgrading to a 4K TV anytime soon.
It also lacks a disc drive, which means you can only play downloadable games on it. This is fine for many people, especially if you subscribe to Xbox Game Pass, which gets you access to a huge library of Xbox games, including all first-party titles on day one. That means you can play games like Halo Infinite and Forza Horizon 5, along with tons of indies and third-party titles like The Sims 4 and Back 4 Blood (and other games without the number four in their titles).
This is the best deal we’ve seen yet on a new-gen console. In fact, it’s one of the only deals we’ve seen yet. So if you want it, grab it. It’s not likely to stick around for long.
