It’s only visible for a second, but a Logitech ad for the Astro A30 Wireless Headset includes a white version of the Xbox Series X.

Microsoft has only ever offered the Xbox Series S in white, with the standard Series X being black or some variation of it for limited editions. So the appearance of a white version of the Series X, which was first spotted by VGC(Opens in a new window), begs the question of whether we should expect an announcement from Microsoft soon? Or did Logitech modify a standard black console to fit its ad?

So far, Microsoft hasn’t commented, but a white version of the Series X doesn’t make much sense when you think about it. The console’s main competition, the PS5, is white so why would Microsoft want to copy that? And as mentioned, the Series S is already white and it’s a cheaper, lower-performance machine. Again, why would Microsoft want to adopt that look for the higher-performance console?

Unofficial skins do exist for the Xbox Series X allowing you to achieve a white casing, and until Microsoft confirms otherwise, I’m going to guess that Logitech appled a skin to a black Series X so as to match the other objects in the scene being created, which includes a white PS5, VR headset, controllers, joystick, and microphone. We also have to remember, Logitech really likes the color white, and recently unveiled its G Cloud gaming handheld, which unsurprisingly is white.
