The Xbox Series S recently officially released by Microsoft has hidden from view during an interview with Xbox Director Phil Spencer a few months ago.
Compared with Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S is smaller, so it is easier to install in a narrow space. This includes the bookshelf in Spencer’s home.
The first interview with Xbox Series S was part of the Gamelab conference, and Spencer spoke with reporter Seth Schiesel.
Fun fact: Xbox Series S is so small @XboxP3 had it sitting on his bookshelf back on July 1 and nobody noticed. 😏

he interview was conducted on June 24, but the video was not uploaded to YouTube until July 1.
Xbox Series X appeared in another interview in July, with sisters Justine and Jenna Ezarik, who was also surprised by the Easter eggs.
ID@Xbox developer account manager Neil Holmes and ID@Xbox global partnership management director Agostino Simonetta noticed that the Xbox Series S is behind Spencer.

But, so far, they have not revealed. A report preemptively showed Xbox Series S, which is a purely digital version of Xbox Series X, with a price of $299 and a release date of November 10.
Since then, Microsoft has confirmed the Xbox Series S, including its price and release date, followed by a price of $499 and the same release date of Xbox Series X. Pre-orders for the two-game consoles will begin on September 22.
With Microsoft finally confirming the price and release date of its next-generation console, gamers hope that Sony will reveal the same details as PlayStation 5 soon.
