It’s been nearly three years since the last Xbox launch. Now, Microsoft is finally back with something new for gaming fans everywhere. The highly anticipated Xbox One S will launch August 2, and it’s better than ever.
So what’s special about the new Xbox One S?
- The latest model has a completely new design. It’s now white and 40% smaller than the original Xbox One.
- It comes with 2TB of storage (Launch Edition). That’s a lot of space for a lot of gaming.
- It has a built-in power supply. This means you won’t have a hot brick attached to your power cord anymore!
- You can watch Blu-ray movies and now stream video in 4K Ultra HD with High Dynamic Range (HDR), making it the first and only console that allows you to do so.
- The wireless controller features textured grip, improved Xbox Wireless signal and Bluetooth support.
Keep in mind, the 2TB Launch Edition is the first of several versions of the Xbox One S. Others will roll out in the coming months with unique features.*
