Microsoft’s Xbox Series X Retail Boxing Has Plenty of Holes

Aernout van de Velde

The retail box of Microsoft’s upcoming Xbox Series X has surfaced online and it has quite the amount of holes.

Following yesterday’s Xbox Series X price and release date announcement, Canadian retailer The Source updated the product page of the console with a new image of the Series X retail box alongside the bottom of the console. It’s quite a stunning-looking box for Microsoft’s flag-ship next-gen console that has some 2001 Xbox vibes going on. You'll find the box art above but we've also included it in the gallery down below.
