The Xbox Series S might have leaked earlier this week before being officially confirmed, but Microsoft was hiding it in plain sight months ago. In multiple interviews in July, Xbox chief Phil Spencer appeared ahead of Microsoft’s Xbox games showcase, and he hid an Xbox Series S on the shelves behind him. But it was so tiny that no one noticed.
Phil Spencer had Xbox Series S all the time, but nobody noticed:
The official Xbox Twitter account revealed the elaborate prank today. While it may sound surprising for an unannounced console to be hidden in videos, but Microsoft has a habit of hiding secrets ahead of its console announcements. Microsoft previously teased its Xbox One X console in a bunch of videos of E3 in 2017 which hinted at its 6 teraflops of GPU performance. The company also teased its Xbox Series X, then codenamed as Scarlett, in E3 teasers last year.
Microsoft was forced to announce the Xbox Series S a little earlier than planned this week, after the console and its $299 price leaked.
