Rear shots of Microsoft’s Xbox Series X console were revealed during the AMD CES 2020 event on January 6, and gave eager fans a glimpse at new details that weren’t shown off during the original reveal.

Xbox’s next generation console was first teased at E3 back in June 2019 under the name ‘Project Scarlett,’ and was later revealed to be called the Series X during The Game Awards on December 12.

Inside components such as a custom solid-state drive and GDDR6 SDRAM were unveiled, as well as an overall look at the console’s front, but the back of the system was never shown off – until now, that is.

Xbox / MicrosoftThe Series X is due for release at the end of this year.

New Xbox Series X details

During AMD’s annual tech show CES, new shots of Microsoft’s upcoming system were unveiled, which gave fans a peek at what the rear looks like.

In the reveal, the console was shown to have two USB-C ports, two HDMI ports, and Sony/Philips Digital Interface capability.

Two HDMIs is certainly interesting, but could just mean they’re In and Out like the Xbox One – but who knows?

A USB port was also shown on the front, presumably to make charging the wireless controller easier for players, rather than having it exclusively on the back.

Fans were awarded with a new glimpse at the upcoming controller too, and were shown what it will look like from the side in order to get a better feel of how big it’ll be.

The flat design of the gamepad looks sort of similar to the Nintendo Switch’s Pro Controller, and it was shown to have black bumpers at the front and silver ones at the rear.

The Series X is set for release late 2020, so fans won’t have to wait too much longer to get their hands on Microsoft’s next-gen system, and is rumored to be more powerful than the PlayStation 5.

Halo Infinite has been confirmed to be a launch title for the console, with an even bigger lineup expected to be announced closer to the time.

Twitch streamer Daniel ‘Dafran’ Francesca may have some of the best luck on OfflineTV’s Rust server. Managing to call and win a 20,000 scrap spin at the Bandit Camp wheel, it’s fair to say he left with plenty of profit.

Collecting scrap in Rust can be a tedious and time-consuming process. So, it’s easy to see why so many players opt to gamble their scrap on the Bandit Camp wheel in an attempt to make a profit.

Oftentimes, this simply results in players losing all of their scrap and leaving empty-handed. However, if luck is on your side, you may just hit the jackpot and leave with a huge profit.

That’s exactly what happened to dafran when he decided to visit the wheel on OfflineTV’s Rust server.

Rust has become one of the most-watched games on Twitch since OfflineTV’s server launched.

Dafran hits the jackpot on Rust gambling wheel

During his January 17 stream, dafran realized that he was low on scrap, and decided to head to the Bandit Camp gambling wheel. Although a risky decision, he was convinced that he’d win big and leave with a lot of profit.

After 40 minutes of spinning, dafran’s luck finally paid off with the wheel landing on 10, giving him a profit of 10,000 scrap. It’s fair to say he was pretty happy with the win, but his incredible luck wasn’t about to end there.

Despite just getting the win, dafran wasn’t satisfied with the profit and opted to continue gambling. Just two bets after his big win, he predicted that the next spin would land on the 20: “we’re going to win trust me, trust me, trust me, we’re going to walk away with 20,000.”

To everyone’s surprise, including himself, the wheel actually landed on 20. The whole Twitch chat erupted in messages and dafran gave his stream an incredible reaction to the win.
There’s no doubt dafran has taken the crown from Itztimmy as the luckiest player on the OfflineTV Rust servers. It’s incredible that he managed to pull off both big wins so close to each other.
Leaving the Bandit Camp with nearly 31,000 scrap profit wasn’t a bad day’s work from dafran. We’ll have to keep an eye on his streams to see if his luck holds up the next time he visits the wheel.
