Engadget Review

The Xbox Series S is undoubtedly the most adorable console of the next generation, but its tiny size comes at a cost. It can’t play games in 4K, doesn’t have a disc drive and has just 362GB of usable storage, unless you buy a pricey expansion card. Quick resume, faster loading times and improved framerates make this a solid next-gen console, but with slightly less staying power than the Series X.
