Next-gen performance in the smallest Xbox ever.
Ready for Action
The next generation of gaming brings the largest digital library yet to the smallest Xbox ever. With more dynamic worlds, faster load times, and the addition of Xbox Game Pass (sold separately), the all-digital Xbox Series S is the best value in gaming.
- Get it once. With Smart Delivery, you can buy a supported game once and always have the best available version for whatever console you play on.
- Game on. Whether you’re looking for a day one launch title, one of over a hundred favourites in the Xbox Game Pass library, or any of thousands of backward compatible classics, there is always something to play on the all-digital Xbox Series S.
Optimised for Series X|S
Games built with the Xbox Series X|S development kit showcase significantly reduced load times and stunning visuals at up to 120FPS. These include new titles built natively using the Xbox Series X|S development environment as well as previously released titles that have been rebuilt specifically for Xbox Series X|S.
- Amazing visual fidelity. Leveraging our next generation custom processor and technology such as Variable Rate Shading (VRS) and hardware-accelerated DirectX Raytracing, games will be capable of more dynamic, realistic environments. With hardware-accelerated DirectX Raytracing, this means anything from true-to-life lighting to accurate reflections and acoustics in real time as you explore the game world.
- Next-gen framerates. Games that have been Optimised for Xbox Series X|S use the full power of the new consoles to deliver higher, steadier frame rates at up to 120FPS while playing.
- Faster load times. The Xbox Velocity Architecture combines a custom SSD and integrated software to greatly decrease load-times both in and out of games, meaning you spend more time playing and less time waiting.
- Xbox Smart Delivery. Smart Delivery ensures you only have to purchase a game once to play the best available version for whichever Xbox console you choose to play on. Microsoft has committed to using Smart Delivery on all its exclusive Xbox Game Studios titles, including Halo Infinite, and have made this technology available for all developer partners to leverage. When you see the Smart Delivery icon on games like Cyberpunk 2077, you know when you buy that title you’ll also get the upgraded version of the game for free when it’s available.
