The long rumored second, less powerful next generation console from Microsoft, name has been dropped on the packaging of the new Xbox Series X controller in white that mentions it supports the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, among other platforms. 

The codename for the weaker next generation Xbox console has been known as Lockhart and it was only speculation it would be called Xbox Series S. However, the packaging confirms the name of the console as Xbox Series S. 

VentureBeat's Jeff Grubb via Twitter says that details on the Xbox Series S will be coming "within three weeks." He originally said two weeks, but corrected himself. It is likely details will be released at Gamescom, which takes place towards the end of August. The Gamescom Opening Night Live takes place on August 27.

The Xbox Series X will launch this Holiday.

I suppose it will be nice to get confirmation of the Series S specs. But, really, it's time for pricing info for all versions of the next gen systems. That's really the only news left that I care about.

Wasn't the previous rumor by mid August?

Yeah, and by three weeks would be by August 28, essentially the end of the month. So in other words - sometime in August lol. I would hope by the end of this month we have full launch details on both Xbox Series S/X and PS5. That would only leave about 2 1/2 months for pre-orders for them...

I guess some people hold visceral hostility to those who lack photographic memory re: schedule rumors.
Or who knows, maybe their schizophrenia was reading demonic messages into it.
