The Xbox Series X, Series S and PlayStation 5 have been almost impossible to buy this year due to an ongoing chip shortage and COVID-related transit issues. Finding one of these consoles at a discounted price is even rarer.

In other words, you need to jump on this deal ASAP before it disappears.

For a (very) limited time, Amazon is selling the Xbox Series S for 10% off the retail price. Normally selling for $499, it's now down to just $449, a saving of $50.

This is the cheapest price you're going to find on a next-gen console by a considerable margin. The PlayStation 5, which is still completely sold out, starts at $599.95. The Xbox Series X (also sold out) costs $749.

The last time the Xbox Series S appeared on Amazon it sold out within minutes, so we strongly advise hitting that purchase button if you want to snap one up. Here's the link.

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.

As mentioned, the Xbox Series S cuts out the Blu-ray drive and cuts back on processing grunt. The 12.15 TFLOPS of power seen in the XSX drops to just 4 TFLOPS on the Xbox Series S. 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.
