According to newly revealed documents from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) in the legal case against Microsoft for the purchase of Activision Blizzard, it has been discovered that the company has plans to release a new version of Xbox Series X in October 2024. This new model, known as Brooklin, will feature a “fully digital” cylindrical design, meaning it will not have a disc drive, and will have 2 TB of storage space.
In addition to these features, the refreshed Xbox Series X will include a front USB-C port, support for Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2 technology, and improved energy efficiency, reducing power consumption by 15% from the power supply. It is expected to be available at a price of $499, although the exact release date is yet to be determined.
Alongside the new console, information about a new Xbox Series X controller has also been leaked. This controller, called Sebille, will be announced later this year and will feature interesting characteristics such as an accelerometer for gyroscopic support. The controller will have a two-tone color scheme and will be compatible with direct cloud connection, Bluetooth 5.2, and an upgraded “Xbox Wireless 2” connection.
The Xbox Series X controller will also include precision haptic feedback, dual vibration speakers, and quieter buttons and thumbsticks. Additionally, it will have a rechargeable and interchangeable battery, as well as modular thumbsticks.
These new technological advancements in the Xbox Series X console and controller promise to enhance the gaming experience for users, providing improved features and greater convenience in their use.
