I don’t pay media hype aroused by his revelations on the Microsoft ready to acquire Platinum Games, the journalist and insider Brad Sams shares a new behind the scenes on the hypothetical distortion that occurred in the timing of the launch of the Xbox Series S and Lockhart after the explosion of the pandemic by COVID-19.

In his latest article published on the pages of Thurrott, Sams explained that “initially, the announcement of the console (Xbox Lockhart, ed.) would take place in June, but the last report that secure the reveal to the month of August, but I still can’t verify it independently. However, there is a given curious, that is the only one of the plans of the launch of the original Xbox Series X that it was expected the output to the end of August, with output of Lockhart originally waiting for mid-October 2020. Clearly the plans for the output of the console have been rearranged because of the virus”.

To want to listen to Brad Sams, therefore, the strategy nextgen Microsoft was originally a launch in the middle of the summer of the Xbox Series the X-and the marketing of the “model budget” Xbox Lockhart or Series S at the close of the christmas holidays, but then reconsider because of the arisen emergency Coronavirus.

The same insider and the author of Thurrott it also says certainly of the fact that the still unannounced Xbox Lockhart will not have a design of the “cube” such as the one hypothesized by render fan made circulating on the network in recent months. For Sams, the latter would, in fact, a choice of design is illogical, given the Xbox Series X adopts the form factor tower for purely design.
