Xbox Series S xScreen Portable Display Funded in 20 Minutes

The latest Xbox consoles aren’t portable, but that hasn’t stopped one Australian company making the Xbox Series S more portable by designing an integrated display.

As VGC reports, Australian start-up and gaming accessories maker UPspec Gaming announced its xScreen for the Series S last month and launched a Kickstarter for it on Wednesday. The screen took just 20 minutes to reach its funding target, but it wasn’t exactly a high target at just under $10,000. At the time of writing, 424 backers have now raised over $66,000.

The xScreen is desirable because it adds a display to the Xbox Series S without any console modification being required. It also removes the need for a HDMI cable and display power cable, while also folding shut to make for easy transport. It’s only an 11.6-inch screen, but offers 1080p output at 60Hz. Based on how many backers this Kickstarter has in just two days, that’s clearly good enough for a lot of Series S owners.

The xScreen is attached to the console using side latches once you’ve lined up and inserted the USB and HDMI ports on the back. Then just plug in the Series S power cable and xScreen output should work automatically. There’s also integrated stereo speakers and controls on the xScreen for adjusting volume, brightness, and other screen settings.

In order to secure an xScreen, backers need to pledge $219 and can expect to receive it in January next year. If you’re quick there’s still some early bird slots left which offer a 20% discount on the price of the display ($196). Eventually the xScreen will revert to its full price of $250.
