See the original posting on The Verge
Microsoftâs Xbox Series S wasnât exactly a well kept secret, but the companyâs decision to create a second next-gen Xbox to go up against the PS5 wasnât an easy one. Ultimately, Microsoftâs decision to build two next-gen consoles came down to the companyâs desire to reach a broader audience than Sony was targeting.
The Xbox Series S lacks the raw horsepower found in the larger Xbox Series X or the PS5. Thatâs left many wondering why Microsoft created two very different next-gen Xbox consoles, while Sony has focused on a single powerful PS5. Some Microsoft employees were even questioning the decision, and the companyâs Xbox chief has revealed to The Verge that âthe best argument against doing [two next-gen consoles] was Sony.â
