This is basically a confirmation of the success of the console in question, since it was probably designed for this purpose: “about half of the Xbox Series S buyers are new to our ecosystem”, explained Nadella with the spread of financial data, which also highlighted a record quarter for Xbox driven by the sale of consoles.
This means that Xbox Series S works as an element for attract new audiences who has never bought an Xbox console before, effectively expanding the use of the Microsoft ecosystem. While the Xbox Series X is arguably more suited to passionate gamers looking for high performance, as well as satisfying already loyal Xbox users, the low price of the Xbox Series S is evidently appealing even to those who had never considered buying. an Xbox earlier, effectively expanding audiences in new directions.
Added to this is probably the attractiveness of Xbox Game Pass, which combined with the price of Xbox Series S allows you to access a large catalog of games with relatively low cost, at least compared to other possible solutions. Despite some controversy recently arisen on the possibility that the console can somehow curb the potential of the new generation, therefore, its diffusion makes Xbox Series S an increasingly important element in Microsoft’s strategy.
