It feels like only yesterday we were waiting for the Xbox Series X's release date and price with bated breath. But before we even got that, news of the Xbox Series S leaked online, complete with its specs and price. It now may be shocking to know that was an entire year ago today.
Yep, it's been one whole year since the leaked information dropped, and of course, since Xbox's legendary reaction to the leak with 'that' meme. You know the one we're talking about. The classic concerned monkey face that practically confirmed the console's existence.
It was a big moment, and one that finally brought an end to all the month's of speculation and rumours as the next-gen launch finally kicked into gear.
The team's use of the meme was so well received that it was actually put up for an award earlier this year. It was nominated for the "Best Use Of A Meme" award at The Shorty Awards, and reading the strategy behind it all is actually rather interesting, showing it was more than a simple bit of fun. Luckily, it paid off and gave Xbox the momentum it needed for the next-gen launch.
