Why grab an Xbox Series S 1TB model?

Same power, more space. (Image credit: Microsoft)

As noted in my Xbox Series S review, the smaller Xbox console is the best choice for gamers on a budget who still want to experience current and upcoming titles like s like Alan Wake 2, Baldur's Gate 3, and Starfield, and don't mind the trade off in graphical fidelity. As someone who primarily plays on an Xbox Series S, and also has an X in the home, the difference is minimal. One primary bugbear of mine is the storage capacity of the Xbox Series S, which up until recently only had 500GB SSD. Meaning I've had to also purchase extra memory. 500GB gets used up fast with modern games, and it's an endless juggle of what to install and what to delete with the original model.

With the Xbox Series S Carbon Black, you're getting everything the S has to offer for current-generation gaming AND a substantial amount of storage because it comes with 1TB as standard. Not only that, but the Black may appeal more to people who like their electronics to match. Who doesn't prefer their gaming hardware a little goth?
