XBSS is made to be sold to people that would very reluctantly pay $400 and never $500 or more for a console. MS made it probably to obtain a user base as large as possible as quick as possible, and also to push Game Pass.
The whole Series S justification hits a big wall which is the lack of disk drive. You want a buget console but have to pay games at full price and cannot buy used games or sell your own games is the opposite of a budgetfriendly console.
And yeah you can have the Game Pass but will have to pay every month + the games doesn't belong to you.
So IMO the Series S fails at several levels and won't nearly sell as much as the Series X. (1/3 or even 1/4 as I believe the current numbers are heavily tied to the stock issues of the Series X)
