Microsoft announces Xbox One S

Microsoft opened its E3 conference with the announcement of the Xbox One S, its smallest Xbox yet.

The Xbox One S comes in 'robot white,' is 40% smaller than the original Xbox One, and does away with the bulky power unit that the Xbox has become synonymous with at this stage. Unlike the original Xbox One, you'll be able to position it vertically or horizontally.

Aside from these design changes, the Xbox One S comes with some internal improvements too. The new-and-improved console supports 4K Ultra HD video, including 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, and has HDR capabilities for both games and video. It now features one USB port on the front for easy access, along with the controller pairing button, and there's a new built-in IR blaster.

It's not just the console itself that's been touched up; the controller has also been upgraded slightly. It features new textured grips, and adds Bluetooth, which gives it more range than previous controllers.

The Xbox One S is launching in August with the 2TB model costing €399, while a 500GB (€299) and 1TB (€349) model will also be available.
