US retailer ‘lists Xbox One S Version 2’
Target reportedly lists updated current-gen console, following axing of various models
US retailer Target has reportedly listed an updated version of Microsoft’s current-gen Xbox One S console.
According to a Twitter user, the One S “V2” was added to Target’s product system this week, with the same $299.99 retail price as the current One S console.
It’s been speculated that the new console version could be a simple refresh to include the next-gen Xbox controller, which made its way into several consumers’ hands this month.
VGC has contacted Microsoft for comment on this story.
Last month Microsoft confirmed it would halt production of its Xbox One X and Xbox One S All-Digital Edition consoles, seemingly in preparation for the arrival of Xbox Series S, the long-reported second next-gen console SKU.
As reported by multiple media outlets including VGC, the console codenamed Lockhart – or Series S, as it looks set to be called – is a less powerful version of Series X that will likely target cost-conscious consumers.
Xbox One X, originally billed as “the world’s most powerful console”, was launched in November 2017, while the disc-less All Digital Edition was launched only last year.
Head of Xbox Phil Spencer had previously suggested that Xbox will publish its latest next-gen console news this month.
Media reports had previously indicated that Xbox would use an August event as the platform to announce Xbox Series S.
