The Series S isn’t quite as powerful as the Xbox Series X, having said that, the 3.6GHz CPU (3.8GHz X series), is still adequate enough. The GPU has about a third of the rendering power and only packs 10GB of GDDR6 memory as opposed to 16GB on the X, with half the amount of storage space - still powerful enough, but only offers of a resolution of 1440p instead of native 4K, but it’s still capable of 120 FPS.
Both consoles still share the same features, such as Xbox’s new velocity architecture, Quick Resume, DirectX Raytracing, Rate Shading Spatial Sound, Gaming at upto 120FPS and the ability to play games from four generations of Xbox, however, the Series S is an all-digital console, meaning there’s no optical disk drive, so you’ll be at the mercy of the Microsoft Store for any purchases you make.
Colour-match your Xbox controller with the white Xbox Series S and the Robot White game controller. Any of the new controllers can be used on both the Series S and X, *including previous gen consoles.
The white modernised design of the Xbox Wireless Controller features sculpted surfaces and refined geometry for enhanced comfort and effortless control during gameplay. The triggers, bumpers and rear are textured to improve your grip. You can customise the button mapping using the Xbox accessory app. There’s also a 3.5mm audio headset jack for plugging in any compatible headset.
*If you already own an Xbox One or Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2, you will be able to use them with the Series X or Series S.
The perfect colour-match for the Xbox Series X - the Carbon Black game controller.
Just like the white controller, the carbon black is essentially the same, in that it utilises the Xbox Wireless and Bluetooth technology for wireless gaming on supported consoles, Windows 10 PCs, Android and tablets. I guess the only benefit is that black controllers won’t show the dirt as much.
The Xbox One or Xbox Elite Wireless Controller (Series 2), are compatible with the Xbox Series X/S.
Go snazzy with the Shock Blue Controller. The controller offers all the same features as the Carbon black and Robot White controllers… only it’s a cool blue!
If you already have an Xbox One Controller / Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2, they will work perfectly well with the Xbox Series X and Series S game console.
The Xbox charge kit is ideal for those who play for extended periods. The Play and Charge kit allows you to keep playing for hours on-end!
The Charge Kit is powered by a powerful 1310 mAh lithium-ion cell, lasting up to 30 hours per charge, taking approximately 4 hours to fully charge. Essentially the Charge Kit bypasses the AA batteries for an easy-to-use, replenishable alternative. The device is connected directly to the controller via the supplied USB-C cable.
