The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, Microsoft's next-generation game consoles, are smaller and lighter than the previous-generation Xbox One All Digital Edition, despite the fact that the Xbox Series S is a disc drive-less console. The "Xbox Series X" and "Xbox Series S" are smaller and lighter than the previous generation "Xbox One All Digital Edition" despite being next generation consoles.
The PlayStation 5 also has a disk drive-less version, but the size is not that much different.

The front of the box before opening.
The back looks like this.
Xbox's catchphrase "JUMP IN" is coolly written on the box.
The side of the box.
The "Xbox Series S" is said to be a low-priced version, but it has 120FPS output and a 512GB SSD disk.
The lack of a disk drive is also listed in the same row, but it seems to be more of an appealing point than a disadvantage.
The main specs are similarly listed at the bottom of the front of the box.
The "Xbox Velocity Architecture" logo, which is the soul of the next generation of Xbox, is also on the bottom of the box.

An earphone jack is also included.
Compared to the controller for the previous generation machine, it has a textured texture finish and a stronger grip to prevent slipping.
The L/R buttons are also designed not to slip.
