In November last year, Microsoft debuted two next-generation consoles – the Xbox Series X and the cheaper Xbox Series S. If you’re looking for the cheaper next-generation Xbox, the Best Buy console is in stock right now.
The Xbox Series S variant costs $ 299, is smaller and less powerful than the $ 500 Series X. Another important thing to note is that the Xbox Series S is a digital console only, which means it lacks a disk drive to play physical game.
If you are planning to buy this console, you may want to consider picking up a few accessories that will help you get the most out of your new gadget, especially an extra controller if you are playing a game with a local partner. a friend or family member.
When it comes to storage, both consoles have quite limited storage. If you plan to download some older games that do not take full advantage of next-generation hardware and do not want to empty the limited SSD storage, you can take an external hard drive. You can purchase a 4TB External Hard Drive from Seagate for $ 100, and it includes a two-month Xbox Game Pass, a Netflix-like video game subscription service for Xbox consoles. Or you can buy a three-month Xbox Game Pass if you do not have any games you are interested in buying yet.
Of course, you can also upgrade your SSD, but there are some things to keep in mind. Seagate is the only one with an SSD expansion card that is compatible with both consoles. In addition, the SSD expansion card only comes in 1 TB, and it is very expensive and costs $ 220.
