The new wireless controller, too

The Xbox One S starts hitting stores on Aug. 2 and will come in three different storage sizes, with prices ranging from $299 to $399, Microsoft announced this morning.

The 2 TB version, which sells for $399, goes on sale Aug. 2 in parts of the world including the U.S., U.K. and Australia. No dates have been announced yet for the other two versions. The 500 GB console will sell for $299 and the 1 TB version will sells for $349. All three versions will include the new Xbox One wireless controller, which can also be purchased on its own for $59.99 starting Aug. 2.

The rollout for the new console will begin in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, the U.K. and the U.S. The Xbox One S will also be hitting store shelves for additional markets later this year, according to Microsoft.

All Xbox One games and accessories will work with the Xbox One S, which was announced during last month’s Microsoft E3 press conference.

The Xbox One S is 40 percent smaller than the original Xbox One and includes a built-in power supply. The three USB ports are on the front of the console alongside an added IR blaster.

Most importantly, though, the new Xbox One allows you to watch Blu-ray movies and stream video in 4K Ultra HD with high dynamic range (HDR) color.
