Microsoft at the ongoing E3 gaming conference announced the Xbox One S. The Xbox One S is the smallest Xbox one yet with a 40% savings in size over the original Xbox one.
It comes in a new “Robot White” color which looks very nice. It isn’t however only about the looks, you’ll also be able to watch Blu-ray movies and stream video in stunning 4K Ultra HD video, with content from partners like Netflix and Amazon Video.
The Xbox One S also supports High Dynamic Range (HDR). With a higher contrast ratio between lights and darks, HDR brings out the true visual depth of your games and media.
For ports the Xbox One S has 3 USB ports along with an IR blaster. In an attempt to slim it down, the dedicated Kinect port has been removed. With the use of a Xbox Kinect Adapter for USB connection, you can easily get a Kinect working on the One S.
When it comes to pricing, at launch there will be a limited 2TB edition of the One S for $399 USD in select markets come August. Other models that will be available include the 1TB Xbox One S for $349 USD and the 500GB Xbox One S for $299 USD.
