Xbox Series S console confirmed on leaked next-gen controller packaging
Microsoft hasn't revealed any official details about the Xbox Series S except to say that the Xbox Series X was not a standalone console. We saw the first evidence of its existence last month when a white version of the Xbox Series X controller showed up, but without its retail packaging. Now another white colored new generation controller has surfaced, but this time with its retail packaging in tow.
Clearly seen on the packaging for the first time is confirmation that there will indeed be an Xbox Series S console which is expected to slot in beneath the flagship Xbox Series X console. In fact, as expected, the new Xbox Series S controller is shown on the packaging to also be compatible with the Xbox Series X console. A key tell-tale trait of the next-generation Xbox ‘Series’ gaming controllers is a share button along with a hybrid D-pad.
As for the Xbox Series S console itself, it is thought to be powered by AMD architecture capable of delivering at least 4 teraflops of graphics performance. If true, this would make it only one-third as powerful as the Xbox Series X and unlikely to be natively compatible with Xbox Series X gaming titles. It is also thought to be digital-only which would make it an ideal fit for downloading and playing Xbox One titles -- but it also could be an ideal fit for streaming Xbox Series X titles using Microsoft's XCloud streaming service.
