Xbox Series X Refresh Upgraded by FTC Documents

Alleged Xbox Series X Refresh

Microsoft’s next Xbox Series X console is an all-digital system that comes equipped with a default capacity of 2 terabytes of storage space.

The plans that Microsoft has for its next Xbox gaming system have recently been revealed in its entirety thanks to a significant leak. The leak occurred as a result of unredacted papers that were posted as part of the current court dispute between the FTC and Microsoft over the latter company’s purchase of Activision-Blizzard for $68.7 billion. These documents were originally detected by Resetera. When dealing with leaks, you should always take the news with a grain of salt.

In addition to offering specs for what is thought to be an upcoming upgrade for the Xbox Series X (which is known by the codename Brooklin) and a new controller design (which is known as Sebile), the docs also show images of the device. The Xbox Series X has received an overhaul in the form of a brand-new design, which completely does away with the standard packaging.

Instead, it is a tall cylinder that is black in color and partly resembles the “trash can” Mac Pro from the past. Although it seems that this design is most suited for standing upright, we are curious as to whether or if Microsoft will include a plastic cradle attachment in the package so that it may also be placed horizontally on a shelf or entertainment center.

If you were thinking that the update will result in improved performance, you are going to be quite disappointed. Instead, Microsoft claims that it is improving the efficiency of the existing AMD Ryzen SoC by employing a new die shrink that is 6 nanometers in size. Because of the decrease in power requirements, the Xbox Series X now has an internal power supply unit that is 15 percent smaller than before, and its standby mode uses just 20 percent of the power that is necessary for the standard console.

The capacity of the internal SSD has also been increased from 1 terabyte to 2 terabytes, and the wireless radios have been upgraded to Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 respectively. The removal of the internal Blu-ray drive, on the other hand, will almost certainly be seen as the most contentious modification.


It’s true that the Xbox Series X upgrade is an all-digital console; the presentation slide that was viewed internally at Microsoft described it like way: “Now adorably all digital.” The fact that players are still making extensive use of physical media is one of the most shocking ways in which gamers are made aware of the fact that the gaming industry is headed in this route.

A revised wireless controller that supports Xbox Wireless 2, Direct-to-Cloud, and Bluetooth 5.2 will be included with the purchase of a new Xbox Series X console from Microsoft. The controller has VCA haptics that double as speakers, precise haptic feedback, quieter buttons, modular thumbsticks, and an accelerometer. Additionally, the haptics provide haptic feedback. Additionally, the new controller comes with a removable and replaceable battery pack for added convenience.

According to the roadmap that was accidentally published online, the new wireless controller for the Xbox will be released by Microsoft in June 2024, while the updated Xbox Series X will be available for purchase in November 2024 for the price of $499. In September, Microsoft will release an updated Xbox Series S console (codenamed Ellewood) with 1 terabyte of storage, Bluetooth 5.2, and Wi-Fi 6E. The price for this console will be $299. Again, this information should be taken with a grain of salt until it can be independently validated.
