Eurogamer understands June was, months ago, when Microsoft had planned to reveal its second next-gen console: the lower-powered Xbox Series S, codenamed Lockhart. Microsoft is still to officially acknowledge this console exists, although public evidence of it is now getting increasingly difficult for the company to ignore.
The original plan was to showcase the Xbox Series S as part of Xbox's big E3 2020 show, so the proposition of a cheaper next-gen option could be explained properly, sat alongside the graphical powerhouse provided by the beefier Series X, both playing the same next-gen games.
But when E3 was cancelled and remote working hindered progress on various internal game projects, it became clear Microsoft could no longer show both its boxes and next-gen games all at the same time. It had to rethink the timeline for all these plans, and instead opted to spread its reveals over a longer timescale - something the company publicly branded Xbox 20/20.
Earlier in the month, Venturebeat's Jeff Grubb reported Microsoft was now saving a big June announcement for August (which is when Eurogamer also understands Xbox Series S will finally be revealed). This prompted a carefully-worded response from Greenberg stating the company had "not pushed anything back", and that its next big digital show was still July.
The argument here seems to be whether Series S was still a June announcement for Microsoft after Xbox 20/20 was detailed. The lack of any other big reveal would appear to suggest so, though I've heard from others in Microsoft who say not - that June was always supposed to be a quieter month for announcements, and the idea of a "moment" for June was always a little out of step with reality. I also understand Microsoft's June plans were made quieter still as the company shuffled its cards yet again to accommodate the real-world events dominating headlines.
pfffff que maldito aburrimiento de verano... "¿que tenemos un evento para este mes? pues espera, que lo mejor vendrá en el siguiente!" y en el siguiente nos emplazarán al otro y así hasta que lleguemos al día de lanzamiento de la nueva generación y aún queden cosas en el tintero.
Se han cagado.
Pues como que me da igual. Yo creo que tal consola no existirá.
Estan esperando a que Sony mueva ficha
si los 399 euros de la ps5 digital edition son ciertos la xbox series s la veo por 200 euros y seria un precio a tener muy en cuenta para lo que traeria.
#13 no lo habia leido pero es que estoy un poco quemado ya de la rumorología y que luego se quede en humo. En una pagina he leido que Series S será tan barata (incluso mas que One X ahora) que Microsoft la venderá con pérdidas. Sinceramente, no creo esto tampoco porque sería una idiotez y personalmente creo que se le podría dar mas mecha aún a One X que sigue siendo actualmente la consola mas potente del mercado en lugar de sacar una New Gen completamente capada.
