According to a leak from Microsoft’s official documents, the Xbox series S is more popular than the Xbox series X. The recent court leaks from Microsoft vs. FTC revealed that 74.8% of Xbox series owners own Series S whereas the rest 25.2% owners own Xbox series X.
It is no surprise that the Xbox Series S is a more popular video game console than the X. The drawbacks of Series S are notable as it is neither able to hit 4K resolution nor does it have the power to have the same features as some games on the Series X.
The good thing about the Xbox Series S is it costs $200 less than the Series X. Xbox Series S costs $299 whereas Series X costs $499. Due to the price issue, many gamers prefer Series S more than Series X. Even the newly released Xbox Series S (1 TB SSD) which costs around $349 is still a better value-for-money video game console for many gamers compared to Series X.
