After many pictures and a hands-on video about the controller for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S surfaced yesterday, there is a new indication today that the next generation of the Microsoft consoles could be released on November 5th, as well as another detailed unboxing video of the new gamepad surfaced.
We reported yesterday that a user was able to grab a controller for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S from a classifieds website months before the release. The packaging not only confirms the existence of the cheaper next-generation console of Xbox Series S, which could cost half as much as the Xbox Series X, but even the supposed release date is also specified.
According to reports on ResetEra, the “Jawmuncher” user was able to get hold of a screenshot showing that the controller’s warranty that will run out on November 5, 2021. Since Microsoft offers exactly twelve months guarantee on most of its products, this seems to be a very solid indication that the controller and with it the next generation of the Microsoft consoles will appear in early November.
This is of course not yet a guarantee, and it remains to be seen whether the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S will appear at the same time, or whether Microsoft would like to bring the cheaper variant onto the market at a later date.
In addition, the controller can now also be seen in the unboxing video published below. There are no big surprises, but in addition to the gamepad itself, the pack only contains the associated batteries – there is no integrated, rechargeable battery in the new Xbox controller either, in contrast to the DualSense controller of Sony.
