The entire Xbox Series X (opens in new tab) briefing from Microsoft has leaked online, revealing more the plan Microsoft originally had before it was forced to play its hand early.
The leaked briefing is broken down into four parts by Twitter user Walking Cat (@_h0x0d_) (opens in new tab), and sees Xbox head Phil Spencer, Liz Hamren (head of platform engineering and hardware) and Sarah Bond (head of Xbox partnerships and ecosystems), interviewed by Cindy Walker, senior director of Xbox platform marketing.

This could well have been the event that Microsoft had planned for next week - the plan that had already been confirmed by Spencer earlier (opens in new tab). The briefing runs through the Xbox Series S (opens in new tab) and Xbox Series X console information that has now been revealed, including the actual Xbox Series S console itself, and the Xbox Series X release date and price (opens in new tab).
Interestingly it is entitled the Xbox Virtual Press Briefing, which could suggest that this wasn't going to ever be released to the public, but rather just to journalists.
Either way, there's no new information in the briefing that we now don't already know. But it's interesting to hear Spencer and co talk about the Xbox Series journey.
