New documents from Microsoft's court battle with the FTC, which appear to have been improperly redacted, show that mid-generation refreshes of each console are planned. The new Xbox Series X console has been codenamed Brooklin and is an all-digital console that sports a rather ugly Alexa-like cylindrical design. As for specs, the court documents state that Brooklin features a 12TF GPU and 16GB of RAM (the same as the standard Xbox Series X), though it will have up to 2TB of storage. There's also a new USB-C front port on the consoles, improved Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support, and an improved power supply.

The documents also reveal a new Xbox controller, codenamed Sebile, which will be announced this year. This new controller will include new haptic features, an accelerometer, quieter buttons and thumbsticks, a rechargeable and swappable battery, and new modular thumbsticks. Interestingly, you'll also be able to lift up the controller to wake it.

The new Xbox Series S, which is codenamed Ellewood, will feature "more internal storage," and some of the same features that Brooklin has, including improved Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support and reduced power consumption. Again, it looks like there are no major performance improvements here.

Ellewood (Series S) is expected to launch in August 2024 for $299, while Brooklin (Series X) will launch in November 2024 for $499, which is the same price as the current Xbox Series X.

The leak has also revealed that Bethesda has several sequels in the works and is planning on remastering both Oblivion and Fallout 3.
