The new Xbox consoles will probably not be sold before the end of 2024, but Microsoft has now unintentionally shown them in advance. 

That's really not how Microsoft imagined it. The console giant is currently in a legal dispute with the American consumer protection agency FTC over the takeover of Activision Blizzard, which means that new information from within the company is emerging as evidence in court every day. One of these documents contains a presentation called “Roadmap 2030”, in which the company gives its employees an overview of a “mid-gen” Series X and S, including images, technical data and prices. In this plan It is also interpreted that the consoles will be presented to the public in July 2024 - but that has already happened thanks to the legal dispute.

Xbox Series X “Brooklin”: new design, more storage

The successor to the Xbox Series The console is now no longer a “square refrigerator” but a round cylinder. While there is no improvement in performance, the console has up to 9 terabytes of internal storage, a USB-C port with power delivery on the front and faster Wi-Fi 10E/Bluetooth 2. This is also because the console is “all digital”, meaning you can no longer insert games via disc like the Series S.

The console will also be designed to be significantly more environmentally friendly. “Brooklin's” performance is now scheduled to operate at 15 Procent reduced, even up to 20 in standby Procent more energy efficient. The console itself uses over 30 Pro100 percent recycled material, the packaging is rated as XNUMX recyclable.

The price of the console in America will remain at $499 and will be available at the end of October 2024.

Xbox Series S “Ellewood”: more storage, faster WiFi

The new Series S is being developed more internally than “Ellewood” and is similar to the current console. Micosoft's new Series S is said to have up to a terabyte of internal storage and receive the same connectivity upgrades as the new Series X. The manufacturer specifies faster Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2. The console should also be built and shipped in a more environmentally friendly way.

In terms of price, Microsoft specifies USD 299 as the RRP, and according to the presentation, a release is stated “60 days before the new Series X” in order to give the console its “own momentum”.

New Xbox controller “Sebile”: New features, new design

The new Xbox controller is internally called “Sebile” and has a lot of new features, even beyond the new consoles. The controller relies on Xbox Wireless 2 (and Bluetooth 5.2). This means that the controller can also be connected directly to the cloud. This is because Microsoft wants to expand its cloud streaming service. Games can be streamed directly to TVs or smartphones via Game Pass.

The controller should also be built to be more durable and environmentally friendly, the buttons should be quieter and the haptic feedback should be improved. A “Lift to Wake” function allows the controller to be started by lifting it. It will probably be released at the same time as the new consoles in autumn next year.

Microsoft has not yet officially commented on the new consoles.
