Xbox Series X Is Coming November 6 According To Another Controller Packaging Leak

Mere days after outing the existence of the long-rumoured Xbox Series S, that cheeky Series X official controller packaging has potentially dropped another big bombshell regarding the release of the new console/s.

Via a tweet today, The Verge’s Tom Warren revealed that it’s not just the controller boxes themselves that contained juicy info but the boxes those shipped in. As is standard Microsoft custom for pre-release products, the shipping boxes that will eventually be sent out to retailers are affixed with bright orange stickers that state the controllers are not to be sold or displayed prior to a certain date. That date is November 6.

Lending this even more credibility is the confirmation from the Xbox team that the Series X is definitely launching at some point in November, which was announced alongside the reveal that Halo Infinite will sadly miss the launch and release in 2021.

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.
