During the 2023 Xbox Games Showcase, Xbox revealed a new carbon black Xbox Series S model that features 1TB SSD.

When it comes to Xbox’s current generation of consoles, players have the option to go with the standard Xbox Series X and the all-digital Xbox Series S console.

The Xbox Series S model is $200 cheaper than the Series X model, but fans must keep in mind the Series X had a bit stronger hardware alongside a 1TB SSD.

That is until now. Xbox officially announced a slightly more expensive Series S model, featuring a 1 TB SSD model, will be available to purchase in 2023.

The company announced the new console model during its 2023 Xbox Games Showcase event. The new Xbox Series S will be available in Carbon Black and will feature a 1TB SSD compared to the previous 512GB model.

According to, the console will retail at $349.99 and will release on September 1, 2023, so Xbox fans won’t have to wait much longer for this new edition to the console family.

While this 1TB Series S is $150 more than the standard Series S model, it does provide a nice middle ground for players who still want to go all-digital but have a bit more storage space than the standard Series S.

In terms of performance, the post said the console, “features the same next-gen speed and performance of our 512GB Series S, now with double the storage…” so fans won’t be gaining any additional performance, just more storage space.

Additionally, the September 1, 2023 release date also means this new console is launching just in time for Bethesda’s massive open-world space adventure, Starfield.

With this new Xbox Series S model, fans who have been on the fence about diving into the Xbox ecosystem may have just found the perfect fit for them.
