In a recent revelation from documents obtained by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), Microsoft is gearing up for a significant refresh of its Xbox Series X console in 2024.
This inadvertent FTC case leak provides an exciting glimpse into Microsoft's future plans for its Xbox Series X ecosystem, with a strong emphasis on innovation, design, and immersive gaming experiences. As the company continues to evolve and adapt to changing.
Codename Brooklin - an entirely new design
The standout feature of this upcoming Discless Xbox Series X is its strikingly cylindrical design. Departing from the traditional form factor, the new Xbox Series X will lack a disc drive entirely, embracing the all-digital era.
Confidential Microsoft documents disclose that it will boast a capacious 2TB of storage, doubling the capacity of its predecessor. Additionally, a USB-C front port with power delivery will enhance connectivity.
Inside the revamped discless Xbox Series X, Microsoft is introducing Wi-Fi 6E support, Bluetooth 5.2, and a die shrink to 6nm for improved efficiency. This will result in a 15 percent reduction in PSU power consumption while maintaining the same attractive $499 launch price.
Codename Sebille - an all-new controller
Accompanying the redesigned Discless Xbox Series X is a brand-new controller codenamed Sebille. This controller promises a more immersive gaming experience with an accelerometer for gyro support. Its striking two-tone color scheme adds visual appeal, while its features include direct cloud connection, Bluetooth 5.2 compatibility, and an updated "Xbox Wireless 2" connection.
The controller is set to deliver precision haptic feedback and innovative VCA haptics that double as speakers. It will also feature quieter buttons and thumbsticks, a rechargeable and swappable battery, modular thumbsticks, and a lift-to-wake function.
