Twitter is having a field day with the Xbox Series S

The Xbox Series S has finally been confirmed by Microsoft as the cheaper, smaller, only slightly less powerful alternative to its flagship next-gen console, the Xbox Series X, with both systems set to launch this November. We've even got a $299/£249 price tag to go with it, while a leaked trailer confirms many of the Xbox Series S specs, including support for ray-tracing, 120 frames-per-second, and plenty more. 

Naturally, the internet is already awash with Xbox Series S reactions across Twitter, with more meme humour than you can shake a Borderlands game at as people express their first impressions to the console, and its bespoke design. Below, we've collated the best Xbox Series S reactions we've found so far, including many, many riffs on the system's... unique look. 

Relatedly, a new Xbox Series X leak may have also revealed the price and release date for the Xbox Series S' bigger, more powerful sibling too, so there's every chance Microsoft is about to make even more headlines in the coming days as it responds to the industry whispers. 

Meanwhile, PlayStation continues to stay eerily silent on anything PS5 related, with this week's PSVR Spotlight seemingly pouring cold water on any new info about its next-gen system for early September. In any case, stay tuned to GamesRadar for all next generation news as soon as it lands.
