    YouTuber Brad Sams on Monday leaked an image of the long-rumored Xbox Series S -- a cheaper, less feature-heavy version of Xbox's next-generation console the Xbox Series X -- along with a price: $299. After a few hours of speculation, Microsoft tweeted a confirmation.

    Xbox Series S, the more affordable and less powerful version of the Xbox Series X, has been announced by the company. Offered with a pocket-friendly price tag, the Xbox Series S is touted to be the smallest Xbox console ever, marked by a distinctive grill on its body. Although the Microsoft-owned gaming giant hasn't announced any specifications or launch details, several features of the upcoming console have been tipped in earlier reports.
