At the end of Sunday’s 2024 Xbox Showcase, Microsoft revealed that it was launching three new consoles. It wasn’t much of a surprise, given that there had been leaks about the new Xbox during the FTC v. Microsoft trial over the company’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard.

The leaks pointed to a very different design to that of existing consoles, but similar power to the Xbox Series X. Also, according to rumors, the new Xbox was meant to be exclusively for digital games.

Although the actual form factor isn’t exactly the same as the leaked redesign, the rest of the description appears to be accurate.

Here are the three “new” Xbox Series consoles:

First off, the new Xbox X Series is the same as the 2020 model but it now comes in a new “Galaxy Black” color and includes a 2 TB SSD. This is a significant improvement from the previous model's 1 TB capacity, especially considering how much storage current games take up.

Secondly, the new Xbox Series S also debuts with a new white finish (“Robot White”) and with double its previous capacity, or 1 TB of storage. This is even more crucial in this model given that it’s a purely digital console.

And third, the new Xbox X Series All Digital also comes in white, but surprisingly, it only offers 1 TB of storage. A puzzling choice, especially considering the increased storage in the previous model. The capacity may definitely be insufficient for some gamers.

In terms of availability, pre-orders will start soon and all three new Xbox models will be launching later this year at the following prices:

· Xbox Series X All Digital: $449.99

· Xbox Series X Galaxy Black: $599.99

· Xbox Series S Robot White: $349.99
