Microsoft have already revealed pretty much all there is about Xbox Series X and its little brother, Series S, with the packaging probably being the last piece of the puzzle.

And what a piece it is - we're not sure how much can one get excited over packaging, but we can't help but compliment Microsoft on the seriously sleek design of the boxes. 

As you'd expect, their Xbox Series X box design is all about portraying it as an ultimate beast. In other words, it's meant to reflect the fastest gaming console sitting inside, hence the all-black design. What's not to like, right?

As for the little brother, Xbox Series S, it's almost as sleek, albeit the company went for a zoomed out version of the console on the package. 

Its slight hardware disadvantage over the X edition can almost be deduced without looking at the writing on the package, courtesy of the predominantly white design. It shows some design features of Xbox Series S as well. 

Interestingly enough, while we've all been hunting for rumours on Xbox Series S, whose codename was said to be Lockheart, Phil Spencer was keeping it on his shelf where it sat for all to see.

Microsoft eventually tweeted it out themselves, and we're still not sure how silly we feel about not scrutinising his July presentation more. We suppose that all the Halo Infinite hoopla somewhat overshadowed the hunt for Xbox Series S info, but hey - there's always the next time.

So, Microsoft practically showed all their cards on the hardware front, prices included, which means it's Sony's turn. And we're expecting them to do so on their next PS5 showcase, which is scheduled for tomorrow
