Xbox Series S leak reveals $299 price

Back in mid-August, the packaging of what appeared to be a controller for the Xbox Series S was leaked on the net, very substantially confirming the existence of Microsoft’s long—rumored less expensive next-gen console. Now, we may well by now know what the unit appears to be like, thanks to yet another leak by Brad Sams. The image render demonstrates a white console that appears to be related to (but not specifically like) the Xbox Series X, together with the controller we saw final thirty day period. It doesn’t appear to be to have a disc generate, but we won’t know for guaranteed until we see much more images or hear much more about it.

The leak also puts the less expensive console’s value at $299, earning it a much more appealing option for mothers and fathers acquiring presents for their little ones this holiday time — assuming it is coming out this 12 months, that is. As Sams mentioned in his report, that usually means the One X could established consumers back close to $599 when it arrives in November. According to the rumors about the Series S that begun circulating way back final 12 months, Microsoft is creating the disc-a lot less console underneath the codename “Lockhart.” It will reportedly be capable of 1080p and 1440p gaming, as properly as a more compact RAM and a a lot less impressive CPU than the Series X.
