One of the worst kept secrets in the world of video games has to be the Xbox Series S. The console has appeared in official Microsoft leaked documents to controller packaging and more. Despite the numerous leaks, Microsoft is yet to give any official information about the upcoming console. Now the Series S name has leaked once again and in broad daylight. Twitter user Brendan took to Twitter to say, “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”.

As you can see from the tweet above, the trial code that one gets with the controller for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate has very clear mentions of Series S. The leaflet reads, “Includes Xbox Live Gold and unlimited access to over 100 high-quality games on Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, And Windows 10”.

Interestingly enough, the controller is not the new Series X controller we saw a little while ago. It is the Xbox One Controller. It is easy to know this as the controller in the image lacks the “share” button which is present on the Xbox Series X controller. 

Since Xbox One accessories like the controller are forward compatible with the Series X, it is obvious that the packaging and information material would highlight this. But the fact that it also highlights the Series S makes the upcoming consoles one of Microsoft's worst kept secrets. As per leaked information, the Series S is expected to have a 4 TFLOP GPU and the same CPU and storage capabilities as the Series X.  

Microsoft and Sony have both revealed the specifications of the Xbox Series X and PS5 respectively and you can see how the 2 consoles compare here. You can also check out our design comparison of the two consoles here
