Xbox Series X Elite game console
The 3D concept shows the high-level Xbox Series X Elite, as the successor to the powerful Xbox Series X. The renewed game console is expected in 2023.
Microsoft has launched two fantastic game consoles with Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X. Series S is the all-digital variant. This game console is also less powerful than its big brother, the Xbox Series X. This is a clear difference with Sony, which equipped the PS5 Digital with the same hardware as the classic PlayStation 5. This gives Microsoft the digital version even more appealing. can win, you pay €300 for this game console. For the X-Series, the price is fixed at 500 €.
Although these game consoles have only been available for a year and are still scarce, two new models are already being worked on behind the scenes. If the rumors are to be believed, a renewed variant of the Xbox Series S will appear in late 2022. Then, Microsoft seems to have plans to update the very powerful Xbox Series X in 2023 as well.
At the moment most of the features are unknown. That didn’t stop graphic designer Jermaine Smit, aka Concept Creator, from creating his own concept design of the Xbox Series X Elite – in black and white. It’s the counterpart to the Sony PS5 Pro, which Jermaine previewed last month. The concept was developed in collaboration with Phone Industry.
Xbox Series X Elite
To start with the name, for the moment it is not known under which name Microsoft will put the new console on the market. The Xbox One X introduced in 2017 was followed by the Xbox Series X. Microsoft might go for an “X” name again.
For convenience, we’ve chosen to rename this game console the Xbox Series X Elite, to indicate that it’s a more advanced variant – just like the Xbox Elite controllers.
Jermaine assumes the design will be completely overhauled. Jermaine has completely redesigned the Xbox Series X Elite, doing no injustice to Microsoft’s history. The straight lines so characteristic of the X series can also be found in the renewed design. However, the console is much flatter and therefore easier to store in a TV cabinet.
By applying a beveled edge, the gaming device looks a bit more playful and refined. LED lighting on both sides provides an extra cool look. On the right front is a large power button with the corresponding Xbox logo. On the left is a CD slot, an eject button and four USB connections.
Of course, the game console must also have enough ventilation slots. On the top, on both sides and on the back there is a wide row of round ventilation holes which ensure that the gaming computer does not overheat during a long gaming session.
The rear also offers space for the necessary ports and connections. As with the Xbox Series X, this involves a total of six ports; one for the power cable, an ethernet port, two USB 3.1 ports, an HDMI 2.1 port and finally an expansion port for storage.
You can also assume that the hardware will be updated. Microsoft likes to be known for having the most powerful console in its hands. For example, the Xbox One X was more powerful than the PS4 Pro, and the Series X is more powerful than the PS5. We assume that Microsoft will retain this title and restock the next generation with the most powerful hardware ever deployed.
According to YouTuber Moore’s Law Is Dead, the Xbox Series X successor will feature AMD’s new 6nm APUs, which will support higher clock speeds. The updated Xbox Series S will also be more powerful than its predecessor. The latter is expected by the end of 2022 and would launch at a competitive price of $350. No information is yet available on the price of the successor to the Xbox Series X.
In any case, you can assume that Microsoft will also bring the Pro model to the market at a competitive price. Little money is made on game consoles themselves. Nevertheless, the release of new consoles obviously helps to attract new users to subscribe to a subscription service.
Microsoft presents itself with the Xbox brand as a SaaS company – ‘Software as a Service’. In other words, the company makes its money by offering software as a service online. Xbox Game Pass subscriptions are a very important part of that.
In the months to come, we will undoubtedly know more about the Xbox game consoles in development.
