One of the best deals in gaming just got a huge upgrade.

That’s right, there’s a new Xbox Series S in town, and it’s bringing a key upgrade along with it. Announced at this past weekend’s Xbox Games Showcase(opens in a new tab), the company’s newest iteration of the Series S will come equipped with a whole terabyte of storage compared to the base version’s 512GB for just $50 more. (That’s much cheaper than picking up a Seagate storage expansion card, which starts at $89.99 for an extra 512GB.) Also, it’s getting a sleek Carbon Black exterior to match the Xbox Series X. The new Series S will launch on Sept. 1, but you can already pick one up for preorder if your mind is made up.


The very best gaming deals for June 2023

The small yet mighty Xbox Series S is a marvel of the new gaming generation. Yes, you can play all the new-gen games on it, but what’s really amazing is what you get for just $299.99 ($349.99 if you go for the 1TB version). The upgraded version of the console serves as a great midpoint between the original Series S and the Series X(opens in a new tab). While the X ($499.99) is more powerful overall, it no longer has a storage advantage over the Series S — both will net you a terabyte right out of the box. So, if you can forego the X’s true 4K resolution and extra horsepower, grabbing an S is a no-brainer. Pair it with a Game Pass subscription(opens in a new tab), and you’ve got a match made in heaven.

Here’s everywhere you can snag a preorder for the new Xbox Series S before the official release on Sept. 1:
