The new Xbox One S is Microsoft’s redesigned game console that brings 4K Blu-ray, 4K streaming, HDR gaming, and more to the Xbox One platform.
Microsoft announced the #XboxOneS back at E3 this past June, just three years after the release of the original Xbox One. It’s a revised version of the original Xbox One hardware that features a streamlined form factor.
The S stands for Slim, and the Xbox One S is 40% smaller than its predecessor, and that’s even when including the power supply inside the Xbox One S, rather than requiring the large, bulky external power supply that the Xbox One needs in order to function. It also now supports HDR gaming, 4K HDR streaming, 4K HDR Blu-ray, and 4K upscaling of games.
You can pick up the Xbox One S now.
