This Might Be Our First Look At The Xbox Series S Design

We haven’t even got solid price details for Microsoft’s announced next-gen console the Xbox Series X yet but it looks like their unannounced project, the Xbox Series S, has been well and truly leaked.

After months of rumours, and accidental slips from Microsoft itself, industry insider Brad Sams today took to Twitter to post an image showing the Series S console’s design as well as an estimated retail price of $299 USD.

While there’s still every chance this might not actually be the design and/or price, Sams is a big name in Microsoft news and leaks and the general consensus is that this is indeed real. A further video posted by another source later on and corroborated by Sams shows a snippet of a promotional video comparing the size of the Series S to the Series X, something that would have been turned around impossibly fast were it fake. We’ve embedded the video below:

It’s certainly going to be interesting to hear more about the Series S going forward and learn how it compares to its big brother and platform rivals.

Kieron started gaming on the SEGA Master System, with Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd and Wonder Boy. The 20-odd years of his life since have not seen his love for platformers falter even slightly. A separate love affair, this time with JRPGs, developed soon after being introduced to Final Fantasy VIII (ie, the best in the series). Further romantic subplots soon blossomed with quirky Japanese games, the occasional flashy AAA action adventure, and an unhealthy number of indie gems. To say that Kieron lies at the center of a tangled, labyrinthine web of sexy video game love would be an understatement.
