Xbox Stream Box prototype leaks in the wild

We’ve entered the new generation of games and consoles. While Sony offers the PlayStation 5 in digital and disc driver editions, Microsoft offers two distinct consoles. The company has the Xbox Series S that acts as a “Lite” version of the Xbox Series X. It has less SSD storage and the specifications are slightly below, there is no way to put a disc on it too. However, the Xbox Series S allows Microsoft to target at a very low pricing point. Both the Xbox Series S and Series X are the best-selling Xbox consoles amidst the supply issues. However, Xbox is also trying to make the Xbox Game Pass service available on more screens including TVs. Today, a product known as Xbox Stream Box has been spotted online.

Back in the last month, the company stated that it is working with TV manufacturers to bring Xbox experience to internet-connected TVs with no extra hardware except for a controller. This app will allow users to access its game streaming service called xCloud on their TVs. For non-internet-connected TVs, the company will offer another option -an Xbox streaming device that should act as a TV Box on steroids.

This device will ply into a TV or external monitor and allow the users to access xCloud. Now, alleged images along with details of a prototype called the Xbox Stream Box have appeared on the internet. However, there is no way to verify the authenticity of these images. For that reason digest them with a pinch or two of salt.

The leaked image was posted on Twitter by a user that goes by @PostUp_bbb. However, he may not be the original source. Anyway, the image has a cuboid with sharp corners and a white finish. There is an Xbox logo on top at the top left corner. The front has a USB-A port and a power button while the rear is home to an ethernet port, a USB-C port, most likely for power, and an HDMI port. Rumors suggest the device will come by the end of this year. However, nothing is determined due to the crisis in the semiconductor industry.

Xbox Streaming Box

In terms of features, the streaming box is a little thicker and wider than a deck of playing cards. It measures around 64 mm x 89mm. Once plugged into the TV or monitor, users will be able to stream from their game console or from xCloud. They will also be able to connect not only an Xbox Controller to the device but a wireless keyboard and mouse too. The Xbox stream box has built-in Wi-Fi or you can plug a cable into the ethernet port. Other features include Party Chat and streaming apps such as HBO and Disney+.

It’s not just a useful feature for a TV or monitor, it can be useful when you’re on a trip and just want to enjoy some gaming sessions. You’ll just need to plug your device onto any TV and will be able to start straight from your account and resume progress. We assume it will have another name, as Xbox Stream Box seems a little redundant.

    This is not what we want! We want something like the Nintendo switch, or this new steam deck! Create a dedicated handheld.

    Xbox is dedicated to their tech, the price and the quality of the product
    It may take a few more months or probably years inorder to get the perfect handheld xbox console

    Unlike the handheld console, we already have Wifi 6 which can be Utilized for another console.
    So inorder to get a handheld console they would have to think about prices and how much tech they could fit into a very small but compact device, which can truly take adventage of gaming

    But why, the series s is already small, if your going to buy a physical box for xcloud, just get a series s. Gonna be cheaper in the long run

    Honestly, I Agree, But What I Am Baffled By, are the thumbs down, not just urs, but others, hmm makes u think, that said, With Scalpers Exploiting The Private Seller, We Need More Portables Than Ever, I've Helped Steam Shutdown Fraudulent Listings On EBay, Using Reservations To Make High Demand Dollars By Scamming Customer's Into Bowing Down Bc They Buy All The MSRP Out Before We Can Get To Em, At Least Companies Like Steam N PowerColor Are Trying To Solve The Issues, Where You Have Companies Like Microsoft N Sony, And Nintendo Not Caring Bc They Still Make The End-Dollar At The End Of The Day, Bc They R Not Realizing They Are Collecting Scalper Money N In Return, Consumers Are Being Exploited, While Those Companies don't Care rather they are too being exploited by scalpers, bc in reality, Scalpers Are Making More Money Than The Devs.🤦‍♂️.

    $299 console versus a $79 streaming device? I can see the appeal.. and not your point.

    Its not gonna be an $80 streaming device though. Its going to be $80 with a $15 monthly subscription. Don’t get me wrong, if you’re gonna be using xcloud on your phone, laptop etc, its 100% worth it. But if you’re only going to use it with the streaming box, there is literally no point to getting that over a series S

    Not only that, but you’ll likely need faster internet, which will also cost more. It’s not a good option for 90% of people in my opinion
