According to the latest report, Microsoft Xbox Series S, the entry-level gaming console, looks similar to the already released Xbox One X. A recent Xbox Lockhart report claims that Microsoft’s Xbox Series S comes in a plastic enclosure similar to that of Xbox One X or Xbox One S. When you compare this design to the cuboid Xbox Series X, it is a thinner console. For the Xbox Series X, Microsoft has notified developers that the next-generation console can be hidden in “PC tower desktops, subwoofers” or other large enclosures.
