Xbox Lockhart was probably Microsoft’s worst-kept secret over the last few years. Since the time the company announced its next-gen hardware as Project Scarlett, there were lots of rumors suggesting the existence of two different next-gen consoles with differences similar to Xbox One X and Xbox One S.
That being said, Microsoft revealed Xbox Series X later in 2019, but there was no news about a cheaper version of the console. At some points, people assumed that Microsoft might have dropped its initial plan, but then the new leaks about Series S surfaced. Recently, Series S has been officially referenced on the package for Xbox’s next-gen controllers.
According to some new leaks and rumors, Xbox Series X and Series S will both be available on November 6. Xbox Series X will reportedly cost $499, which seems reasonable regarding its powerful hardware compared to Series S.
With Xbox revealing the price for one of its next-gen consoles, Sony might also attempt to unveil the price for PS5 soon.
