Xbox One S: Slimmer Xbox Officially Revealed At E3
Yesterday we ran a story about the leak of a new Xbox One model known as the Xbox One S, a sleek and slim version of the original Xbox One. As we know leaks are always a dangerous thing to follow, a lot of the time proving to be completely false. In this case however Microsoft have now officially revealed the Xbox One S console during their E3 conference!
This new Xbox console is marketed to be 40% smaller than the original and have up to a 2TB internal hard drive, an integrated power supply, HDR Gaming and is able to show videos and blu ray in 4K Ultra HD.
The console also ships with a new wireless Xbox controller. The new controller looks pretty similar to the previous iterations of Xbox One’s controller, though this version has an increased range and a nicely textured grip.
The announcement video for the Xbox One S can be seen below:
The console will be available in august for $299 in August.
Major Nelson will also be completing an unboxing of the new console later on today. He states on twitter that he has already been using the console for a few months at home and he can’t wait to talk about it.
I've been using the new Xbox One S at home for a few months…and I can't wait to talk about it later today with @geoffkeighley on his show.

Are you excited for the new Xbox One S? Or do you think they should get rid of the One console line all together and throw something new into the mix?
