If you have been watching Phil Spencer participate in video interviews from his home in recent months, it means you technically already saw the Xbox Series S well before its official reveal this week, you just didn't realise it at the time.

According to the Xbox Twitter account, he's had one hidden away on his bookshelf since the beginning of July.

One of the main selling points of this system is that it's the smallest Xbox ever. It's so small, in fact, it seems you can place it on a bookshelf and nobody will even notice it!

iJustine - one of the many people who interviewed Phil around this time, noted how she didn't spot it herself:

Well played, Phil. Did the Xbox Series S ever catch your eye during any of his video interviews? Tell us down below.
