Microsoft released a number of news this week that will make gamers very happy. In addition to the Xbox Series X, there is a new Xbox Series S console and other games that are available for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate at no additional cost thanks to a new Microsoft partnership with EA Play.
After a few hints of the new Xbox Series S hit the internet, it’s finally official. The new Xbox Series S is an all-digital console that allows you to download all of your games instead of playing them from disc. The S Series is also the smallest Xbox ever, despite its next-gen speed and performance. It’s also cheaper than the powerful Xbox Series X.
While the Xbox Series S is cheaper than the Xbox Series X, it is based on the same technology and Xbox Velocity architecture, which means it is a next-generation console. It has the same benefits as faster load times and quick resumption, so you can pause a game at any location without a save point and revert to it later. You can even switch between multiple games at lightning speed.
The other exciting news is that Microsoft has announced that Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members (if you have Xbox All Access with Telstra, including you) will reportedly be able to get an EA Play membership alongside Xbox Game Pass at no additional cost. EA Play includes more than 60 of EA̵
