There have been some rumors for new consoles and while Sony denied them, Microsoft didn’t comment those. For a good reason obviously, yesterday at the E3 Gaming Show 2016 the company announced a brand new console called Xbox One S. Yes not slim but s, however the console is a lot slimmer that the previous generations.
40% slimmer that the Xbox One and the power supply did sound like a dream in rumors which appeared recently. Though Microsoft has made all that possible with the new console and even more. With the support for 4K Video playback and HDR gaming you are definitely ready for the future of UHD. Apart from that the company will be offering the console in different storage variants, currently only a version with a 2TB HDD is available to pre-order for $399. Versions with less storage will be offered later this year, starting at $299.
Gameslice has published a video today called ‘YouTube Live at E3 2016’. There you can see Microsoft’s Xbox Guru Larry Hryb together with Carl Ledbetter unboxing the all new Xbox One S.
In the Video Larry Hryb confirms that the new Xbox Wireless Controller will be shipped with the Xbox One S. The controller has been completely overhauled to fit in your hands even better. Furthermore Microsoft has build-in Bluetooth which allows you to connect the controller to your Surface tablet with Bluetooth for example.
Let us know what you think of the new Xbox One S and stay tuned for more Microsoft related news in the future.
