Xbox Series S, the star of Black Friday and Christmas with stock problems in Series X and PS5

The little sister of the great Microsoft machine is one of the great incentives to buy both on Black Friday and at Christmas and that although it is not the most advanced console, it is a more than viable option for players who do not seek the maximum benefits or be casual players.

The Black Friday It is just around the corner and there are many who are going to take advantage of these dates to buy Christmas gifts, among which is a console for their own use or for the youngest of the house. Yes OK Xbox Series X y PlayStation 5 they are two incredibly good machines, there is hardly (to say absolutely nothing) of stock Due to the problem with the replenishment of raw material to produce these chips and people pull their hair every time it appears on an electronics website. But there is a little companion that despite not being as powerful as its older sister, it is powerful enough to fulfill its functions of the new generation: The Xbox Series S.

The lower power model than Series model is a huge option for those who want to give way to the new generation, especially for those who seek play without “high expectations” like 4K resolution. Currently the vast majority of Spaniards have to their credit a Full HD television, that is 1080p, compared to a small portion (Less than 10% according to the data extracted from SES ASTRA Ibérica), so they would be taking advantage of or squeezing the Series X , and seeing the benefits of the S Series, it is almost the best option for these first years of Next-Gen, since the little Microsoft can reproduce almost all the games without problems. 1080p and 60fps, and even 1440p and 60fps in some titles.

And you may wonder, why are we talking about this console? Because Amazon just announced a succulent Series S discount of up to 30 euros in Spain: It has gone from 299 euros to a total of 269 euros as a deal for Black Friday. That is, for almost half the price of Series X we can fully enter the new generation of consoles, so it does not seem like a bad option for the most cautious of Christmas for their children. In addition to this you can add to this pack different quite interesting additions like the almost mandatory Game Pass that will allow us to play more than 100 high quality games for 10 or 12 euros per month. Here are offers with different games available for this small but powerful console:

  • Xbox Series S – 269,99 euros
  • Fifa 22 Standard digital – 39,99 euros
  • F1 2021: Standard digital – 38,49 euros
  • Mass Effect Legendary Edition digital – 41,99 euros
  • Game Pass Ultimate / 1 mes – 12,99 euros


We were convinced that it would be a success, and it has been: Forza Horizon 5 and its Mexico have already attracted millions of pilots from around the world, for one of the best releases in history on Xbox consoles.
