EFE UDINSEPTEMBER 13, 2020 Xbox Series X Last week, Microsoft officially confirmed the price of the Xbox Series S. Since this confirmation, there have been a lot of discussions about the Xbox Series S. According to reports, this console which is a “low-end version” of Xbox Series X can perform almost all operations. However, it can not run games or play CDs in 4K (because it does not have an optical drive). In the official fact sheet shared by Microsoft, we also learned that another difference is that Xbox Series X can broadcast and record games at 4K resolution and 60fps.
