Xbox Series S has been mentioned once again in an official Microsoft product.

The way of citing it makes two things clear: the first, that this model, Xbox Series S, undoubtedly belongs to the Xbox Series X family of consoles; the second, that it is a console whose announcement is imminent, since Xbox Series X will go on sale in November.
Xbox Series S, officially cited since August
This is not the first time we talk about Xbox Series S. Last August we echoed a similar circumstance; although even more strange. In that case, a player reported on Twitter that he had received at home a unit of the new controller that will go on sale this fall, the one that will come with Xbox Series X … but in white, a color range that is not yet available. has officially announced.
The product box also featured Xbox Series S alongside the Series X name. It is possible that this reduced-performance model was planned to be revealed sometime this summer, but its announcement was delayed for some reason. . Xbox made it clear that its Xbox 20/20 monthly ad plan was being canceled, so that August ads would be postponed until at least September.
Xbox Series X will go on sale in November at a price to be determined. The Xbox Series S announcement is similarly unknown.
