The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S will not be released until next month, but Microsoft has confirmed that it has “started” the Xbox Series hardware iteration for the future.
Speaking to Kotaku, Phil Spencer was asked whether Microsoft will eventually offer faster SSDs on new Xbox consoles to compete with PS5 speeds, with the Xbox boss explaining that, as in previous generations, the team will work on your hardware in the future.
“Our team doesn’t go away when we sort of lock in specifications.”
Spencer pointed out that part of this is about reducing the cost of the console in terms of parts that are already installed, but also “just looking at areas in terms of what are the next iterations you can do?”
The Xbox One generation, of course, saw several changes from a hardware perspective, with the original 2013 model being complemented with the Xbox One S in 2016 and the more powerful Xbox One X in 2017.
