Yesterday we saw a leak that pretty much confirmed the existence of the long-rumored Xbox Series S console. The box of the controller clearly mentioned that the controller could be used with the Series S or Series X consoles. It turns out the box of the controller (unboxing video present below) was more interesting than the controller itself as the information present on the box of any of these devices is of paramount importance.
Wccftech observed that the warranty of the controller expires on November 5th, 2021. We know that Microsoft follows a one-year limited warranty policy, which means the Series S and Series X consoles may release on November 5th. The theory seems plausible, but it has its drawbacks too. For example, the leaked controller may not be of the day one console, which means we may even get the console before the November 5th date (which is a good thing, right?). These are only speculations which one must take with caution. Regardless, November 5th seems to be upper-bound. We may get the console on or before the said date.
If you are still wondering, the Xbox Series X console will be the most powerful console of the generation following the footsteps of its predecessor, the Xbox One X. Here are the complete specifications of the console. The console may (read: will) be accompanied by a less powerful but equally impressive Xbox Series S console (codename: Lockhart). The lower-powered console is designed to play games at 1080p/1440p. The leaked specifications include 7.5GB of RAM and a GPU capable of putting out 4 TFLOPS of computing power.
Lastly, experts and speculators expect the Series S to be priced at around $250 while its bigger brother may be priced at $499.
