Microsoft unveils three new Xbox models including a disc-less white Xbox Series X

This year’s Xbox Games Showcase was full of Xbox-related news, including the announcement of three new Xbox Series X and Series S models, of which two are white. Xbox president, Sarah Bond, took the stage of the Games Showcase event to reveal all the details about the new consoles coming this year.

Xbox Series X and S now come in white, too

For starters, a disc-less white version of the Xbox Series X console was announced. That also means the new model will be all-digital. On the inside, the new model is identical to the original Xbox Series X including performance for existing Xbox games. The new white Xbox Series X console comes later this year with 1TB storage and a price tag of $449.99.

Previous reports from Exputer have suggested that the new model could feature an upgraded heatsink. However, you have to wait until the teardown of the console is out in the wild. Besides, a new digital-only white model of Xbox Series S with 1TB storage is also coming which will set you back at $349.99.

Galaxy Black Special Edition Xbox Series X is here with double storage

Talking of Galaxy Black Xbox Series X, it will feature a disc drive and launches at $599.99 later this year. The Special Edition Xbox Series X comes with 2TB storage and a revamped design. Xbox hardware chief Roanna Sones talks about the new model and says:

This new special edition Xbox Series X delivers the same speed, performance and features of Xbox Series X, but with twice the storage and a unique design. Drawing inspiration from constellations and the spirit of exploration and adventure that outer space evokes, the special edition console in Galaxy Black features a silver, grey, and green celestial effect representing thousands of games and millions of gamers playing on Xbox.

As The Verge noted, the announcement of the white Xbox Series X means that Microsoft has either delayed or possibly canceled the revamped version of Xbox Series X. Notably, the details of the alleged model appeared in documents that were part of FTC and Microsoft’s legal battle.

Notably, all the models are coming later this year. Moreover, Xbox could reveal pre-orders and pricing details for different regions soon.
