Xbox Series S: Another telltale sign from Microsoft

It’s getting funny how the unannounced console is getting mentioned on more and more products of the Redmond-based company, while they don’t even want to officially talk about it yet…

The Xbox Series S (codename: Lockhart) WILL be announced sometime in September. Not at the Tokyo Game Show, though (as Microsoft said they will not have any NEW next-gen news announced there), so before it, meaning it will happen in three weeks. And since we heard that Microsoft might have shifted its planned August Xbox event to September due to Halo Infinite getting delayed into 2021, then we can say that the clock is ticking against them.

A Twitter user shared two photos after buying a new controller from Microsoft‘s online store. He got a little surprise – he also received an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate card with a fourteen-day trial code.

„Includes Xbox Live Gold and unlimited access to over 100 high-quality games on Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, and Windows 10,” the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate trial code mentions. And there you have it: Xbox Series S, mentioned clearly and explicitly, supporting the rumours that Microsoft might have announced the cheaper, weaker next-gen Xbox last month.

The rumours say that the Xbox Series S will have 7.5 GB of RAM for the developers, a GPU with 4 TFLOPS of computing performance (the PlayStation 4 Pro can hit 4.2, the Xbox One X reaches 6, the PlayStation 5 is supposedly aiming for 10.28, and the Xbox Series X will hit 12), with hardware ray tracing support, and the same CPU used in the Xbox Series X (AMD Ryzen Zen 2-based).

The Xbox Series S is yet to be announced, and it might launch on November 6. No pricing is known for any of the next-gen consoles either.
