According to the latest leak, Microsoft will be unveiling its second, affordable next-gen Xbox console later this month. From the looks of it, it seems to be the part of the Xbox Series S. The leaked pair of photos suggests that the Xbox controller will be in white and the packaging will denote the tag of Xbox Series S. Zak S, a Twitter user has purchased the controller today and confirms that it’s genuine.
He bought the controller from a resale site. He says that the packaging shows that the controller can be used with both Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles. So far, Microsoft has kept its lips sealed regarding the Xbox Series S. In fact, it hasn’t even signalled that the Xbox Series X controllers will be white.
Last month, a mysterious white Xbox Series X controller appeared online. It had complete textured triggers, new share button as well as the new D-pad. Interestingly, this leaked photo matches the profile of the previously leaked controller. The retail packaging also suggests that they may come to stores sooner than expected!
The Xbox Series S will serve as the second chapter next-gen Xbox for Microsoft. It has been codenamed as Lockhart. If you’ve been up to the date with the leaks, then you may be aware of the leak that occurred back in June. It basically gives away the company’s plans for the upcoming two next-gen consoles. One of them is apparently codenamed “Dante” and it permits the developers to enable a special Lockhart mode.
The Lockhart console is set to include 7.5GB of usable RAM as well as 4 teraflops of GPU performance. Apart from this, it will be shipped with the same old CPU found on the Xbox Series X.
Microsoft has not commented on the current leak yet. A spokesperson has given this statement: “We have a lot in store for Xbox in 2020 and can’t wait to share with you. However, we have nothing to announce at this time.”
