Gamers are put off, and there are even some developers who say the Xbox Series S is just plain tasteless.
However, time has proven that the Xbox Series S is not wasted. Not only have many film makers rehabilitated it, the sales speak for themselves as well. According to statistics from the US market research agency Adobe Digital Economy Index, the Xbox Series S not only overtook its big brother Xbox Series X on Black Friday, but even overtook the PS5 and Nintendo Switch OLED, becoming thus the best-selling game console.
The investigative agency analyzed that this could be due to the shortage of materials which prevented the Xbox Series X and the PS5 from completing the supply.

The vice president of Microsoft’s gaming department also said a few days ago that he is confident that total sales of the Xbox Series S will overtake the Xbox Series X in this generation.
