EOFY deal: Cheapest Xbox Series S price ever (save $101)
Amazon Australia has knocked $101 off the brilliant Xbox Series S to ring in the new financial year. Get it for $398, down from $499.
If you're sick of waiting for the Xbox Series X to be back in stock, the Series S might be the solution you're looking for. Like its bigger brother, the Series S is designed to play the latest Xbox video games and is compatible with all Xbox Series X titles. It's also a much better-looking console in our humble opinion.
The only real drawback is that it lacks a physical disc drive, which means you need to download all your games directly from Microsoft. However, with more and more gamers going completely digital, this is a small price to pay.
This is the cheapest price that the console has ever been. (The previous record also from Amazon was $449 and that was back in April.) There's no telling when the price will be this low again, so we suggest getting in while the getting's good.
Here's the link to buy.
Get the Xbox Series S for $398, a saving of over $100 on the regular retail price of $499. The deal also includes free shipping.

About the Xbox Series S
The Xbox Series S is a lower-cost, all-digital alternative to the Xbox Series X. It comes with a less powerful graphics processor and no optical drive, but it can play all the same games as the Xbox Series X. This makes it an excellent option for gamers on a budget.
The 12.15 TFLOPS of power seen in the Xbox Series X has been bumped down to just 4 TFLOPS. This is mainly due to a lesser CPU running at 3.6GHz instead of 3.8GHz and a downgrade of the GPU from a 52CU (compute unit) RDNA 1.825GHz card to a 20CU, 1.565GHz GPU card.
It will still run Xbox Series X games but they will look slightly less impressive on a 4K TV. You can find out more about how the 2 consoles compare in the video below.
