After the Xbox Series S was found on leaked controller bundles, game pass coupons, and a full blown logo dump, Microsoft eventually formally announced the next console in the “Xbox Series” console family with its $299 ERP. Although the internet remains torn about whether it looks nice or like a washing machine (it does!), a recent console leak has been posted on Twitter.
The leaked teaser video for the Xbox Series S comes from the Twitter leaker WalkingCat and shows the functionality of the Series S. Based on the commercial, the Xbox Series S comes with 1440p gaming support. That’s pretty amazing for the $299 price it’s set. What’s more, compatible games run 1440p at 120 frames per second, so you can anticipate super smooth gaming on compatible tiles. Plus, there is support for DirectX Ray Tracing. In addition, you get variable rate filtering, variable refresh times, 4 K upscaling and more.
In comparison, the commercial states that the console is the smallest Xbox ever, which is 60 percent smaller than the Xbox Series. So if you’re concerned about the space it’s going to take up in your entertainment room, well, if you could put the Xbox One there, it’s going to fit in comfortably as well.
The part that triggers some discomfort in my eyes is safety. The ad discusses 512 GB of capacity on the computer. However, today’s games regularly surpass the size of 100 GB, which means that this volume will operate fairly easily on the Series S. It’s not clear if the Series S will have an expansion port equivalent to the Series X’s, but I’m sure I hope so.
The ad finishes with the ‘Coming November 2020’ screen and, according to a new Windows Central article, both the Series S and the Series X will be launched on November 10. Let’s hope we’ll soon get more official information on this issue.
