The latest Xbox Series S supports physical formats, and by that I mean bread

First a fridge, now a toaster

Both of Microsoft’s current Xbox consoles now have kitchen appliance counterparts. The Xbox Series S toaster recently debuted, following up the Xbox Series X refrigerator. It’s available for purchase from Walmart for $39.99. In place of its ability to connect to a TV and play games, it can toast bread or bagels, imprinting the Xbox logo onto its side with its internal heat coils.

The Series S toaster has a slot long enough to fit two slices of bread side by side, which I suppose can be considered multiplayer support if the bread is for two people. As with most toasters, this one has different toast browning levels, a removeable crumb tray, a bread ejection function, and automatic shutoff.

Microsoft remains quiet about its upcoming hardware plans for actual video game consoles, which based on a major leak in 2023 may include a revised Series X that doesn’t support discs, as well as an interesting new wireless controller. But its latest roadmap apparently contains some little surprises that weren’t leaked, including this cheeky lil’ toaster.
