Another Xbox Series model is rumored.
This could be an all-digital next-generation box.
Will Microsoft release three models for accessibility’s sake?
The Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 release this holiday season. Sony’s box has confirmed a (likely cheaper) all-digital version, while Microsoft’s is rumored to have a cheaper, lower-powered alternative as well.
Rumors are pointing toward a third, surprise version alongside these, supposedly codenamed Edinburgh. Could this be an all-digital box to compete against Sony’s?
A Third Xbox Series X Console?
Windows Central journalist Jez Corden is looking into the codename, which could mean a variety of things.
An All-Digital Series console, perhaps? | Source: TwitterA third model may sound ridiculous, but don’t put it past Microsoft. This generation has the Xbox One, Xbox One S, Xbox One X, and Xbox One S All-Digital or SAD.
The platform is always about choice. Game Pass, xCloud, and its commitment to Xbox One support for two years after the Series X launch are prime examples. Considering Microsoft needs to rebrand itself next-gen, more choice is an excellent way to do so.
Some replies suggest Edinburgh is related to xCloud, and not a new console model. Others claim it is an all-digital alternative, and Jez agrees.

Another more accessible Xbox Series model could also justify a higher-priced Series X. The price of this top-tier box is still uncertain, but there’s reason to believe it won’t be cheap. More models could also back up Microsoft’s planned support for the current generation.
Regardless, all Microsoft wants is more players in its ecosystem. This could be on PC or any console variant. The company will take any opportunity to increase those numbers.
We’ll likely find out more later this month, at Xbox’s latest event. Just don’t expect it soon, as rumors point to a late month date for Microsoft’s summer event.
Let’s see a price, yeah?
