The Xbox Series S is one of the most affordable consoles on the market, but some users say that the 512 GB of storage is not enough for some games that can already exceed 200 GB in size. Microsoft has now announced a new version of the Series S in Carbon Black with twice the storage during the Xbox Games Showcase.

As we can see in the launch video and in the image below, the Carbon Black color of the new Xbox Series S is similar to that used in the Xbox Series X, making the set with the controller more interesting for those who don’t want a white console on the shelf.

Aesthetics aside, the general specifications of the Xbox Series S Carbon Black are the same as the standard version, except for the storage, which in this model has 1 TB, dispensing with the use of an expansion card.

The need for this model was emphasized by Phil Spencer, the head of Xbox himself, who said he had heard a lot of negative comments about the Series S’s 512GB storage limit. 500 is a lot for a console”, referring to the price of the Xbox Series X.

price and availability

According to Microsoft, the Xbox Series S Carbon Black will be available worldwide starting September 1, 2023 for US$349.99 or around R$1,700 in direct conversion. Unfortunately the official price for Europe was not mentioned.

The pre-order of the console is already available on the official websites of Xbox and Microsoft in the United States. For comparison purposes, the Xbox Series S Carbon Black at 1TB in size costs $30 less than a standard Xbox Series S with a 512GB expansion card from Western Digital.
