Looking to pick up the new Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S over the holiday season? Here's how much you should expect to say in Australia.
In Australia, pricing for Microsoft's new Xbox Series X starts at AU$749. At this stage, there's only one model on offer which features 1TB of storage and supports gaming in 4K at 60Hz.
The Xbox Series S is slightly cheaper, with an RRP of AU$499. It only features 512GB of storage and supports gaming in 1440p at 120Hz.
However, that price-cut does comes with some pretty important caveats. In addition to the previously-mentioned cuts in resolution and storage space, the Xbox Series S also does away with a disc-drive. For better or worse, it's an all digital proposition. It's also got less RAM, less GPU grunt and relies on the Xbox One S versions of games (rather than the Xbox One X versions) when it comes to backwards compatibility.
In Australia, the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S will initially be available through Microsoft Store, JB Hi-Fi, EB Games, Telstra, Harvey Norman, and other participating retailers. The above will be taking preorders for the console from the 22nd of September ahead of a November 10 launch.
Telstra customers will also be able to get their hands on either of Microsoft's new consoles through Xbox All Access.
Shoppers looking to grab an Xbox Series S through Telstra can do so for AU$33/month on a 24-month plan. Meanwhile, the Xbox Series X comes in at AU$46/month on a 24-month plan. To take advantage, click here.
