Another Thing to Add to the Evidence Pile for the Xbox Series S
The Xbox Series S has been rumored for months, and we've got yet another new piece of evidence that feels pretty concrete.
Ever since the Xbox Series X was announced last December at the Game Awards, gamers have been wondering about the existence of a Series S. So far there have been leaks all over the place that have helped build a very strong case for its existence and yesterday Twitter user @BraviaryBrendan added one more piece of evidence to the ever-growing pile.
After buying a replacement Xbox One controller, @BraviaryBrendan was looking at the Game Pass Ultimate trial card that came with the controller and spotted something a little out of the ordinary. One line of text on the back of the card all but confirms the Series S by saying this:
“Includes Xbox Live Gold and unlimited access to over 100 high-quality games on the Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, and Windows 10.”
I got a new controller for my Xbox since mine was broken. Interestingly enough, the Game Pass Ultimate trial code sheet mentions the unannounced @Xbox Series S. It’s definitely a thing. pic.twitter.com/GX1rOYG5g7

It makes perfect sense that Microsoft would want to release a Series S alongside the Series X. Because they did the exact same thing with the Xbox One X and the Xbox One S. Even before some of the hardware specs for the Series S were leaked online, it was safe to assume that the Series S would be a slightly less powerful machine that would be a little bit cheaper than the Series X similar to the differences between the Xbox One X and the Xbox One S.
It feels like it’s only a matter of time before Microsoft makes an official announcement revealing the Series S, but for now, it’s safe to say that there’s one coming. The evidence has been piling up for months so now it’s just a waiting game.
