Microsoft today detailed a new version of the Xbox One: The Xbox One S.
The new console has a new design, comes in "robot white" and is 40 percent smaller than the original Xbox One. The console, which starts at $299, has a built-in power supply, can be used with an option stand to be placed vertically and supports streaming video in 4K Ultra HD as well as High Dynamic Range (HDR).
Now get a better look at the console in this series of close-up photos and, of course, an unboxing. But first, this absurd gif from the YouTube Live @ E3 show.
- This is a special launch edition 2TB model. The stock 500GB model is $299, while the 1TB model is $349.
- Hello there!
- It's smaller and lighter, as evidenced by this impressive one-handed lift.
- Yup, they're all there.
- The front of the console has an IR blaster built-in, for those of you without a Kinect
- The buttons and ports are designed to be more easily usable, including the clearly visible eject and sync buttons, and the front-mounted USB port
- The Xbox One S has an internal power supply, so no more MASSIVE external Xbox brick. Which is sort of sad. :'-(
- The new Xbox One S controller comes with built-in Bluetooth, great news for anyone interested in using the controller with a PC or Mac
- Otherwise, it looks pretty familiar!
- The power button lights up. Pretty!
- Okay, it's sitting there. What's the big deal?
- This angle shows off the generous air cutout on the perforated side.
- The Xbox One S has an optional vertical stand.
