New Xbox Series S And Controller Leaks

xbox series s

It appears that a slip up an online ad scored one twitter user a bargain and might have just confirmed the existence of the Xbox Series S console.

Every so often grabbing a bargain buy form an online ad reaps serious results but for twitter user Zak S (@zak_exe), it appears they got way more than they expected when he picked up a new Xbox controller. It seems that, based on photographs and videos posted by the gamer, the Xbox controller they picked up is not only a brand new design somehow intended for Microsoft’s newest next-generation games console, but also confirmed the existence of a yet unannounced Xbox console. While the Series X console is almost old news ahead of its release, the packaging on Zak’s new controller purports compatibility with the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S controller.


Assuming the information is legitimate, and Twitter seems pretty convinced at this point, this means that the Xbox next-generation series of consoles is following on with the same tiering structure as the current Xbox One range. The S series of Xbox is generally considered to be a cheaper entry into the ecosphere, cutting back some of the more to end features to give players a platform that with allow them to play Xbox compatible titles.

The leak also shows off a new design of Xbox Controller that looks similar to the previous generation, with minimal ergonomic modifications and a very obvious change to the D-Pad. We haven’t heard anything on the feel of the two in hand so I guess we’re going to be waiting until we find or own Xbox Series S controller when it launches for real.

This leak, if it is real, isn’t really a concern for security but it does look bad for Microsoft. If the company was set to confirm and Xbox Series S system then this will take much of the wind out of their marketing sails. The controller looks pretty nifty though, right?
