The Game Awards 2019 saw the official unveiling of Microsoft’s Xbox Series X, the next-generation successor to the Xbox One. While fake and unconfirmed renders have made their way online in the weeks following the announcement, we finally have a real look at an actual Xbox Series X console.
Originally posted on Twitter, user Doug_DragoX revealed two images of the console laying on a carpet. Back in December, Xbox boss Phil Spencer confirmed Series X prototypes are in the wild; Spencer has also started that the console is now his primary games machine.

The leaked Xbox Series X images show both the front and back of the console, confirming the much-discussed ports. The console will have an optical audio port, two USB A-ports, Ethernet port, power and an HDMI port. Microsoft has also added some air vents on the back for cooling.
While the question of legitimacy is bound to arrive, these prototype images appear very real indeed. With the images laying bare the console’s unique serial number, Twitter user GameReaper187 managed to register the serial number to his console. While the console isn’t registered as Xbox Series X, it does register as a Microsoft product.
