Xbox Series S Leak

Note that Microsoft has yet to unveil an Xbox Series S console, and has not confirmed a white Xbox Series X controller.

According to The Verge:

[testimonials user=” email=” name=” position=” photo=”]“The Xbox Series S will likely be Microsoft’s second cheaper next-gen Xbox, that’s been codenamed Lockhart. A Microsoft document, leaked back in June, shed some further light on the company’s plans for two next-gen consoles. Microsoft’s Xbox Series X devkit, codenamed “Dante,” allows game developers to enable a special Lockhart mode that has a profile of the performance that Microsoft wants to hit with this second console.”[/testimonials]

Microsoft has yet to comment on the matter. Rumor states that Microsof will unveil the Xbox Series S in August, so one might be able to learn more about this mysterious system this month.
