Xbox Series X is no slouch in the power department, and will be the most powerful console on the market. The Series X and S also feature what Xbox is calling Smart Delivery, which automatically upgrades to the best game version for your console at no extra charge, and your Xbox One and Xbox 360 catalogue games are compatible with your console. With Xbox’s innovative GamePass, there is also a catalogue of over 100 great games available to play for R99 per month.
The Xbox Series S, is the smallest, sleekest Xbox ever, which is a next-gen all-digital console at an accessible price point. At the heart of Series S is the Xbox Velocity Architecture, which pairs a custom-SSD with integrated software for faster, streamlined gameplay with significantly reduced load times.
