Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Xbox Series X Announced (Xbox Scarlett)!

I had a feeling Microsoft was going to go the phone route with consoles going forward. Maybe not an annual release but a new console every three years, with new games working on the last 3 to 4 itterarions. Similar to how games on phones don't work on older models.

I could see these as the names going forward:
Xbox Series X (premium model)
Xbox Series S (affordable model)

Xbox Series X2
Xbox Series S2

Repeat every few years with a new number.

Tried to work out the size of the console by using the controller as scale.

Xbox One Dimensions = 7208cm3 = 33.3cm x 27.4cm x 7.9cm
Xbox One S Dimensions = 4342cm3 = 29.5cm x 23cm x 6.4cm
Xbox One X Dimensions = 4320cm3 = 30cm x 24cm x 6cm
Xbox Series X Dimensions = 6570cm3 = 29.2cm x 15cm x 15cm

So in terms of volume it's smaller than the OG XBO, a fair bit larger than the XBO S/X.

You take into account the controller is a hair smaller? Using the disc drive would be better to figure out it's size.

Looks like a pretty cool mini pc but I think they are shooting themselves in the foot with the design. How's anyone supposed to fit that thing under the tv?

I didn't know the new controller was apparently smaller, this uses the XBO controller dimensions. Don't know why they'd change the size of the controller. xD

I'll trying using the disc drive instead, the problem is any extra length the slot has over the actual disc dimensions.



LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

It looks like it's two-ish BL disks high, meaning it's around 25 cm, or size of an iPad. If it helps with the thermals, I don't mind. The last thing I need is a jet engine fan like in PS4. I wonder if you can put it on its side?

Two gamecubes duct tapped together nice.



 

 

I'm wondering why they named after the smartphone-like models, and the tower case is you know everyone knows it's more like a PC mini tower that branded by Silverstone.

Using the disc drive as scale instead of the controller.

Might be generous on the size, might not be, hard to say.

Xbox One Dimensions = 7208cm3 = 33.3cm x 27.4cm x 7.9cm
Xbox One S Dimensions = 4342cm3 = 29.5cm x 23cm x 6.4cm
Xbox One X Dimensions = 4320cm3 = 30cm x 24cm x 6cm
Xbox Series X Dimensions = 6180cm3 = 28.6cm x 14.7cm x 14.7cm   (Drive as scale)

Xbox Series X Dimensions = 6570cm3 = 29.2cm x 15cm x 15cm  (Controller as scale (XBO Dimensions))

With the new controller apparently being smaller it seems likely that the volume is between 6000cm3-6500cm3

Place it horizontally? Would that be a problem?

No way it's 25 cm if that kind of disk tray is usually ~15 cm-ish basing on the other Xboxes released this generation (that is, about ~ 1.5 cm on each side of the disk itself). It's more like 30 cm.
