  • Microsoft’s Phil Spencer believes the Xbox Series S’s price will help it beat Xbox Series X in the long run
  • Spencer thinks both PS5 and Xbox Series X will fly off shelves at launch
  • Both the Xbox Series X and Series S will launch on Nov. 10

Microsoft executive vice-president for gaming Phil Spencer believes that the all-digital Xbox Series S will sell more units than the more powerful Xbox Series X over the course of the next generation.

Spencer told Kotaku that he expects the Xbox Series X, with all of its bells and whistles, more power, 1TB of storage, 4k resolution, 16GB of RAM, and priced at $ 499, to be the bigger hit when both are launched on Nov. 10.

Since the Xbox Series X is what Microsoft has been pushing and is the kind of machine that ushers in a new era of gaming, Spencer said he believes it will be the machine that early adopters will grab. He also predicted that rival PlayStation 5 will be flying off the shelves as well when it launches two days after the Xbox consoles.

“I think demand is just going to outstrip supply of pre-orders. For us and PlayStation, I think that the manufacturing supply chain is going to dictate [market] share more than anything else,” Spencer said.

However, in the long run, Spencer thinks it’s the smaller, discless sibling with a $ 299 price tag that will prevail. “I think, over the generation, our expectation would be that price really matters and that you would see the Series S sell more,” he added.
