Microsoft has officially announced the Xbox One S, the smaller Xbox One that has been rumored for months. It’s 40% slimmer than previous models and fully supports 4K resolutions and Blu-Ray discs.
In addition to being significantly smaller and supporting high resolution, the Xbox One S also features the following:
- An HDR that covers both gaming and video needs
- A USB port that’s been relocated to the front for easier to access
- A new IR sensor
- An upgraded controller with new grips and Bluetooth support
The design allows it to stand vertically, you know, in case you don’t have any horizontal openings on your gaming shelf.
In the United States, the limited edition Xbox One launches in August 2016 with a 2TB hard drive and a $399 price tag. Two standard editions with 500GB for $299 and 1TB for $349 will be available later on.
What do you think about the overall design and feature set of the Xbox One S? Will you be getting it?
