[Le Deal du Jour] The Xbox Series S is currently the cheapest home console to upgrade to the next-gen. Today, Microsoft’s fully dematerialized machine is available at 279 euros, thanks to a promo code.
Every day, the editorial staff selects a good plan for you, spotted on the web, which has a direct relationship with our editorial line.
Next to the overpowering Xbox Series X, the Redmond firm offers a more affordable console, but with some concessions. For example, you will not enjoy your games in 4K with the S Series, but in Full HD, and you will not be able to insert a game disc. All your purchases will therefore have to be made from the Microsoft Store, but the Xbox Game Pass, classic or Ultimate, is a very attractive subscription.
Instead of 299 euros, the Xbox Series S with 512 GB of storage via SSD is now available in promotion, at 279 euros on Rakuten (seller Cdiscount), using the promo code CR20 before proceeding to the payment of the order.
To get this price, you need to be a free Club R member, which will also save you money on future orders.
To better understand the offer
- What is the Xbox Series S?
The Xbox Series S is a lower performing home console than the Xbox Series X, so its price is milder – $ 200 difference today. It does not have a Blu-Ray drive, nor 4K definition for games, and the storage capacity is less (512 GB instead of 1 TB). Its design, however, is more compact and discreet than Microsoft’s monolith.
With this affordable console, you’ll also enjoy the same features (including the Quick Resume) and the same games as the Series X. You just have to be prepared to make some graphics concessions.
- Why is this the perfect console for Game Pass?
The Game Pass is Xbox’s ultimate weapon. It is a monthly subscription offering the possibility of playing hundreds of games without limitation, by downloading them directly to the console. An offer that gives full meaning to the Xbox Series S – which does not have a Blu-Ray drive. There are obviously a lot of independent productions, but also Microsoft’s first-party titles and a lot of third-party games. In addition, all the next big triple A will be included in the offer upon release, such as Halo Infinite Where The Elder Scrolls 6.
