The Xbox Live Gold Games with Gold free games for May 2022 are almost here:…
A white version of the popular Xbox gamepad was recently released with the Core model of the Xbox Elite Series 2 controller. It would fit perfectly if you could play it on a white Series X, don’t you think? Such a variant can be seen in an announcement trailer for the brand new Astro A30 headset, but we still don’t believe in the existence of a new color variant of Microsoft’s most powerful console.
White Xbox Series X in the background
Numerous input devices from Astro Gaming’s parent company Logitech as well as the current consoles from Sony and Microsoft were placed in the trailer for the revised model of the popular Astro A30 headset. However, the Xbox Series X that graces the background of the video is surprisingly white.
So far it is only available in black – or more precisely a very dark gray. In addition, special collector’s editions for fans of Halo or SpongeBob SquarePants have been offered for sale or raffled.
Here’s what the white Xbox Series X looks like in Astro Gaming’s trailer:
There is much to be said against the leak of a new color variant of the Xbox Series X
Seeing a white Xbox Series X in a promotional video is unusual at first glance, but we don’t suggest you’ll be able to order a new color variant anytime soon. There are already some adhesive foils available in stores that can be used to easily color the Xbox Series X in white, among other things.
The case could also have been spray-painted to match the very bright scene of the promotional clip – the Microsoft console can be disassembled fairly easily, which is why it would not be unthinkable that the production company that created the trailer did so for a more coherent overall composition wanted to worry.
In general, the question arises as to how a production company for advertising clips should have come into possession of a previously unannounced Xbox console. That doesn’t seem particularly logical to us, but we can’t completely rule it out.

Perhaps Microsoft or Logitech can provide clarity. We’ve reached out to both companies for comment, but have yet to receive either a confirmation or a denial regarding the white Xbox Series X.
Would a white Xbox Series X appeal to you more than the traditional black?
