Gamer Alert: The Xbox Series S is back on sale in Australia


The Xbox Series S has sneaked back onto Amazon's Australian website for $499 - but if you want one you'll need to be quick.

Next-gen video game consoles have been almost impossible to come by this year due to the insanely high demand. Fortunately, Amazon has quietly added an additional wave of Xbox Series S units onto its website.

The Xbox Series S is the cheapest next-gen console available right now, with an RRP of $499 compared to the PlayStation 5's starting price of $599.95.

The last time the Xbox Series S appeared on Amazon it sold out within minutes, so we strongly advise hitting that purchase button if you want to snap one up. Here's the link.

Buy Xbox Series S

Introducing the Xbox Series S, the smallest, sleekest Xbox console ever. Experience the speed and performance of a next-gen all-digital console at an accessible price point.

Buy for $499 ($250 less than Xbox Series X)

The Xbox Series S is a lower-cost, all-digital alternative to the Xbox Series X. It comes with a less powerful graphics processor and no optical drive, but it can play all the same games as the Xbox Series X. This makes it an excellent option for gamers on a budget.

As mentioned, the Xbox Series S cuts out the Blu-ray drive and cuts back on processing grunt. The 12.15 TFLOPS of power seen in the XSX drops to just 4 TFLOPS on the Xbox Series S. This is mainly due to a lesser CPU running at 3.6GHz instead of 3.8GHz, and a downgrade of the GPU from a 52CU (compute unit) RDNA 1.825GHz card to a 20CU, 1.565GHz GPU card.

It will still run Xbox Series X games but they will look slightly less impressive on a 4K TV. You can find out more about how the two consoles compare in the video below.
