Last month at E3, we saw the reveal of the Xbox One S. This is the newest model of the Xbox One, with it’s “Robot white” color scheme. The Xbox One S is 40% smaller than the regular Xbox One, which makes it the smallest Xbox to-date.
The highly anticipated console is set to be released on August 2nd, which means fans who have pre-ordered the console will be getting their hands on it in exactly two weeks. If you want to pre-order the new console, you can do so by visiting the Microsoft Store website or select retailers.
The Xbox One S features up to 2TB of storage, a 4K upscaled output, HDR (High Dynamic Range) and not to forget, it is 40% smaller than the Xbox One. The Xbox One S also has a built-in power supply, and Microsoft also moved one of the three USB ports to the front of the console alongside the IR blaster, which provides increased accessibility.
The Xbox One S is the first and only console which provides a 4K upscale. Fans will be able to play games like Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 4, and more upscaled to the native display resolution of their 4K TVs.
The Xbox One S comes with a new Wireless Controller. The controller is more comfortable, and has a sleek, streamline design. The textured back of the controller provides a better grip and it has increased range as compared to the normal Xbox One controller. Fans who purchase the 2TB version of the Xbox One S will receive a free Vertical Stand with their console.
The Xbox One S will be sold at three different prices, depending on the storage. The 500GB version will be available for $300, the 1TB version will be available for $350, and the 2TB Xbox One S will be available for $400.
