The best prices
Xbox All Access
Xbox All Access is presented in the form of a subscription to obtain an Xbox Series console without paying the full price at launch. Payment is spread over 24 months (via 0% consumer credit with access to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate over the entire period. At the end, you obviously keep your next-gen console.
Since November 10, 2020, only Micromania and Fnac have been approved to offer the All Access formula. The monthly cost is 32.99 euros per month for the Xbox Series X and of 24.99 euros per month for the Xbox Series S.
Xbox Series X: the most powerful
Since its announcement at the end of 2019, the Xbox Series X has been communicated by Microsoft as the most powerful console in the world. For this, it offers a power of 12 TFlops, translated by an AMD Zen 2 8-core CPU at 3.6-3.8 GHz, an AMD RDNA 2 GPU with 52 CUs at 1,825 GHz, 16 GB of RAM in GDDR6 and a 1TB SSD with Xbox Velocity Architecture. With such a configuration, it is the assurance of being able to play all games in 4K at 60 frames per second, or even up to 120 FPS depending on the title. You can also taste the ray tracing which was previously reserved for the PC.
However, all of this would be nothing without a good cooling system. The chimney design of the Xbox Series X is designed to achieve optimal APU temperature with ventilation covering the entire console rather than directly over the central chip heatsink, where the goal is obviously to deliver the best possible performance. On the other hand, this induces a massive format which will find its place more difficult in your bedroom or in the living room.

Xbox Series S: the most compact
The Xbox Series S is Microsoft’s secret weapon against the PlayStation 5. With an introductory price of 299 euros, the current price of the Nintendo Switch, you will have access to a real console next gen if you are willing to make some compromises.
With a difference of 200 euros compared to the Series X, this console is obviously less powerful with 4 TFlops against 12. However, these figures should not be compared with the Xbox One/PlayStation 4 generation, since the machines next gen are not based on the same architecture. The Series S embeds almost the same AMD Zen 2 processor as its big sister and offers the same functions of ray tracing, as well as the use of the SSD (512 GB) with the Xbox Velocity Architecture. It is primarily designed for Full HD screens with a maximum definition of 1440p.
It is also the most compact new generation console. With its dimensions of approximately 30 x 15 x 7 cm, it will find its place much more easily under your TV cabinet.
