Okay, so, this is a weird one. Astro has just dropped a new ad for its upcoming A30 headset revision, and it contains a suite of gaming hardware to match, including a PS5 and an Xbox Series X. However, the Series X system on show is white – a colour scheme we’ve not yet seen since the generation began.
Now, this could just be a custom job purely for the ad – but that seems an odd choice given the other consoles are standard editions. If you wanted to showcase a white Xbox console for your next-gen headset, why would you not simply use an Xbox Series S?
There’s another wrinkle to this story as well. Astro Gaming is now owned by tech company Logitech, who recently worked with Microsoft on the upcoming Logitech G CLOUD handheld device. That partnership was more on the software side, sure, but it stands to reason that the two companies have a decent relationship behind the scenes.
Either way, we’re not exactly sure what’s going on here, but we could indeed see a white Series X in the near future – we saw the white Xbox One not too long after launch. Whatever happens next, the console looks seriously sweet in white anyway!
What do you think is going on here? Custom one-off or a hint at something new? Let us know in the comments.
