A leaked video is seemingly part of Microsoft’s original plan for the Series S reveal before a media leak forced it to announce the console on Twitter this week. The leaked briefing is broken down into four parts by the Twitter user Walking Cat (@_h0x0d_)

Microsoft had originally planned to announced Xbox Series S and its pricing plans next week, according to the head of Xbox Phil Spencer. This leaked press briefing video was likely part of the company’s original reveal plan.

The video features Spencer, as well as platformer marketeer Cindy Walker, head of Xbox partnerships Sarah Bond, and head of platform engineering Liz Hamren.

Although the leaked briefing doesn’t reveal any significant new information beyond what was released this week, it does offer a look at how Microsoft could have decided to reveal the next-gen console.

With the leaked video entitled the Xbox Virtual Press Briefing, this would suggest that this wasn’t going to ever be released to the public, but rather just to journalists.

The £250 / $300 Xbox Series S was revealed earlier this week and will target running games at 1440p, with support for ray-tracing, 120fps and 4K upscaling. The console has virtually the same CPU as the £450/$500 Series X, but a less powerful GPU, less memory and no disc drive.

The lower-end next-gen console will include many features from the premium Series X, including an SSD and support for 120fps and ray-tracing.
