Microsoft was rumored to unveil its next generation of Xbox consoles this month and now it has been confirmed to be the Xbox Series S. Series S is going to be the lower-end variant of the upcoming flagship Xbox console, Series X. Its release has just been confirmed through a controller packaging that clearly states “Xbox Series S”.
A Twitter user Zak S purchased the controller yesterday and The Verge was able to confirm that it is genuine. It was sold through a resale website and the side of the packaging mentions that the controller works with the Xbox Series X and S. Microsoft is yet to officially unveil the Xbox Series S or even controllers for the two upcoming consoles.
A mysterious Xbox Series X controller appeared last month which looked strikingly similar to the new leak with the new D-pad, textured triggers, and new share button. Overall it seems very similar to the Elite controllers. The appearance of this controller indicates that these consoles could start appearing in stores soon.
The Series S console is expected to come with 7.5GB of RAM, 4 teraflops of GPU performance, and the same chip as the Series X. As mentioned before, the new console is expected to appear sometime later this month and it will likely be a huge part of Microsoft’s Xbox All Access subscription.
