Fnac decides to cut the price of the Xbox Series S to sell off stocks

If the Xbox Series sold better than the PlayStation 5 in North America and Europe during the month of February, it is obviously a function of stocks allocated to the different territories of the world, but it is also a bit thanks to the Series S, which is easier to produce and above all more affordable. The price of this next-gen console is also currently falling to further accelerate sales against Sony.

WHAT TO REMEMBER FROM THE XBOX SERIES S?

  • It’s the smallest next-gen console
  • It can run games in 1440p at 60 fps
  • There’s no player, so Game Pass is a must-have
