We've been hearing for months about the existence of a second next-gen Xbox - the Xbox Lockhart / Xbox Series S - and now its name has almost certainly been leaked via packaging for the new Xbox controller.

In addition to the photos which first leaked above, Twitter user Zak S was able to find one of these controllers in the wild and posted an array of images online - including the side of the box which references the Xbox Series S console.

There's a lot of evidence to go on here, but just in case you're still sceptical - website The Verge has also reportedly confirmed that this controller is genuine, so it looks like Xbox Series S is indeed the official name.

The Xbox Series S is rumoured to be a cheaper, lower-spec alternative to the Xbox Series X, and it's been suggested that it will be revealed later this month. We've been hearing about it for a long time, but this is the first time we've seen it referenced on (seemingly) official Xbox packaging.

Excited for the Xbox Series S? What do you think of the controller? Let us know in the comments.
