Following the Xbox One S leak from yesterday, Microsoft officially announced the new Xbox One S.

The Xbox One S is 40% smaller than the current Xbox One, features a 2TB hard drive, support for 4K Ultra HA video, High Dynamic Range, a vertical stand, and new controller.

It’s described as ‘Sleeker, Slimmer, sharper.’

The new Xbox One S features the power brick internally, similar to the PS4. The console will be available in August for $299 with preorders starting later today.

The console also introduces a brand new Xbox One controller.

Xbox One S comes in three different models: 500GB for $299, 1TB for $349, 2TB for $399. The 2TB model is apparently a limited edition for launch of the new console.

Preorder now at Amazon.

    4K video, and no games in 4k.

    • BradyAlucard

      Only Scorpio, if it’s as powerful as everyone says.

    • Brian

      Such a pointless comment.

      There’s more to the console than playing games y’know.

      • What’s the point in buying a console to just watch Netflix. You buy a console for the GAMES!

        • Brian

          Did I say just watch netflix? No

          • TheDemonOfHate

            Well isn’t that more than just gaming?

          • The Gaming Revolution

            What would you do with the 4K ability other than play games and watch movies/TV Shows?

        • TheDemonOfHate

          That’s like me buying a car just to sit in with the A/C on.

      • BradyAlucard

        Uh… no there’s not. Multimedia exists as a side option. GAMING consoles solely exist to play games.

        • Brian

          I guess you’ve never heard of people using their consoles to play blu-rays or stream 4k content.

          • BradyAlucard

            Solely to? No, I haven’t. That’s not what they’re built for, they’re meant to play games and have everything else as a bonus.

        • I’ve forgotten.. again!

          I hear ya bud. I know I only use my phone to ph.. Oh no, my world just collapsed.

          • BradyAlucard

            You what m9?

          • I’ve forgotten.. again!

            I’m trying to demonstrate that you have a very old fashioned view of things. The days of consoles being consoles, phones, phones, a tablet a tablet etc. Welcome to diversification – things are only going to go further in this direction.

  • Marques

    Still looks like a VCR

    • BradyAlucard

      I can’t lie… it does lol.

    • Ak74u

      The ps4 doesn’t look any better..

      • TheDemonOfHate

        It still gets the job done. But I think it looks amazing.

      • BradyAlucard

        Sure it does. Many prefer its design. I’ve always loved PlayStation console designs. It’s pretty slick.

      • Dickmissle

        Good one very fucking clever

  • Money Boy

    I finally know how 360 users felt when the 360 slim got announced

    • X1 KILLA (John D)

      And the PS3 slim

  • X1 KILLA (John D)

    And the PS3 slim

  • JeronimoPW

    New hardware?

  • CoDforever

    Whats the point of buying this when the better xbox one (scorpio) is coming out soon?

  • Yes! Thank you!

    • BradyAlucard

      It’ll be more expensive, according to leaks. Save your money IMO. But I’m not going to tell you what to do lol.

      • How expensive? If it’s just as much as the PS4 Neo, shouldn’t be a problem. Either way, I’m planning on taking my original Xbox One and trading it in for the slim. I’m honestly getting it for the slim size and the 2TB

        • BradyAlucard

          I heard from rumors that it would be $449, but they were wrong. It’ll actually be $299. Go for it if a PS4 isn’t your thing.

  • Kyle Soule

    Yes! I heard rumors about this. I’m so glad they are true.

  • lunator100hd .

    I wonder what the price will be?

    • Kyle Soule

      I know it will be cheaper because there was another website that leaked this.

      • lunator100hd .

        Cheaper than what?

        • Kyle Soule

          Than the original Xbox one.

          • BradyAlucard

            Lol definitely not. It’s rumored to be $449.

          • Kyle Soule

            I hope it’s just a rumor.

          • BradyAlucard

            It is. It’s actually $299!

          • Kyle Soule

            Woah, really?!

        • .Monkey

          Xbox one

      • Drank Bleach

        Doubt it, i think that’s why the Xbox one went down to $299, but then again they aren’t selling well.

        • Kyle Soule

          I hope it’s cheaper than the Xbox one but who knows.

    • Kieran18

      Around the same as Xbox one was when it came out £429

    • BradyAlucard

      $449. Way too expensive.

  • .Monkey

    Has to be pricier. Easy opportunity to make more money for them.

    • Vicsupreme

      I guess you don’t understand the real reason for making it slimmer

      • .Monkey

        I guess you don’t understand the real reason they’re making a slim version

        • Vicsupreme

          You basically just said nothing lol moron they make it slimmer to cut production cost fyi, hence, making it cheaper. Not “pricier”. Learn something dumbass

          • .Monkey

            They make a slimmer version to cut costs and sell for higher as it’s a newer version of the console. They make more profit. They’re a business. They add nice looks and 2TB to convince people to buy it.

          • Vicsupreme

            *facepalm* did you just start gaming this generation? The consoles get CHEAPER as time goes by not more expensive than when they started. Of course they’re a business but they don’t maximize profits that high to where it’s in illogical ripoff. They settle w just cutting the cost. And 2 tb and an overhaul alone doesn’t convince current X1 owners to go out and buy.

          • .Monkey

            Yes, they get cheaper over time. This is a “new” console they’re making. They will start the price off at a higher point to earn whatever they can. Imagine going on the Microsoft store and seeing the Xbox One and the slim version. Obviously everyone would buy the slim one of its cheaper. This is not what they’re going for…

          • Vicsupreme

            No…that’s what they do w a new generation console which brings me back to my question….did you just now start gaming this generation?

          • .Monkey

            No, first console ps2 (wasn’t into the social side of it, just played alone, but 360 was first one I really got into)

          • BradyAlucard

            Then why is it $449?

          • Vicsupreme

            They’re up charging for the added memory and whatever additional specs they’re adding to make it 4K ready. First time they’re actually “upgrading” the consoles instead of only making them slimmer..meh

          • BradyAlucard

            I didn’t know that it had more memory… They need to give some options, like a slimmer version of the *current* model AND this one. Like what Neo is rumored to be doing. It currently fas two different models, unless the rumors are wrong. They don’t need to overcharge because I really don’t think that this model will sell well at all unless it came in a bundle with a game or two or three.

          • Vicsupreme

            Agreed, mid-gen slim model consoles should always sell cheaper than the original. And if that’s not the case w the Xbox one then they need to, as you said, make a separate slim model without the extra memory and power boost and then drop the original Xbox one box all together. That should suffice everyone. The choice of a sleeker and cheaper Xbox one or an Xbox w a little extra in it for a bit more money

          • BradyAlucard

            It’s $299, so never mind.

          • BradyAlucard

            $299*.

  • Slick

    Could this be scorpio? because its the xbox one s and scorpio is just a code name so could this be what they were talking about?

    • Kyle Soule

      Probably. Maybe.

      • Slick

        still hoping for that VR support but eh this is still cool and leaks are leaks they are not always true

        • Kyle Soule

          I know me too. Yh I guess your right but I it has VR support.

    • Kenny

      No. Two consoles are coming out in the future. The slim (this year) and the scorpio next year. Just becuase it has an s for slim doesn’t mean it’s scorpio, lmao.

      • Kobrah

        You didn’t have to be a dick to him. It was an innocent question

      • BradyAlucard

        But it could be a hint/easter egg/ whatevertf.

  • Piotr Piter

    So that 4k supports are for video?

    • lunator100hd .

      Only for video.

    • What? 4K only for video? Current PS4 already does that. I was expecting 4k games! But I guess for $450 its alright since its a smaller version and power brick is internal.

    • Kobrah

      Yes, only video

  • Gamerazor247

    Yee!! I’ve been waiting for this announcement for almost three years!! Now I can play Quantum Break and Sunset Overdrive, yeeeee- I’m my vet proud of myself…

  • With the vertical stand, I hope this means that disc drive is supported in the vertical position.

    • BradyAlucard

      You wouldn’t be able to play your physical games, then, so that’d be pointless.

  • J4MES

    This new Xbox will feel so small compared to the original One

      Pretty psFANBOY in xbox article. LOL

      • BradyAlucard

        This is a general gaming discussion article for all opinions, at least so I think.

  • jordanxbrookes

    The XB1 Slim makes the controller look huge lol.

  • MichaelSwift

    Anyone think it’s worth buying?

    • lunator100hd .

      We’ll see.

      • MichaelSwift

        I mean I could always just trade in my current one. Curious as to how much it’ll be.

        • BradyAlucard

          $449, rumored.

          • MichaelSwift

            Fuck that

          • BradyAlucard

            The rumors were wrong. It really IS #299. Rejoice!

          • MichaelSwift

            I still don’t think it’s worth it considering there’s a runour of something releasing in 2017 as well.

          • BradyAlucard

            $299*. And the Scorpio may be even more expensive than the Neo, so I would just get that (Neo may be $499).

          • MichaelSwift

            Well we’ll know for sure in 2 hours.

  • Fuck yeah.

  • Stefan Lang

    Dont think ill buy this. But it looks cool.

  • Psychomaggot105

    450$ I believe

  • darren

    Putting the power brick inside it is dumb.

    • Why?

      • AsianPersonDude

        I actually agree with him. Putting the power brick inside will make the xbox hotter which will decrease the console lifetime. It’s just how technology works. Not a fanboy to make that clear. I own Xbox1, PS4, and a PC.

    • Ak74u

      Ps4 has it inside now tell me why it’s dumb fanboy

      • AsianPersonDude

        I actually agree with him. Putting the power brick inside will make the xbox hotter which will decrease the console lifetime. Not a fanboy to make that clear. I own Xbox1, PS4, and a PC.

        • BradyAlucard

          In all due respect, I’m pretty sure that that is inaccurate.

          • ToonToons22

            It’s not. In fact, it’s not that far from the truth. Internal power supplies, especially on smaller consoles, have been known to make the system hotter and louder.

          • BradyAlucard

            I’m sure that there’s more to that than the power supply. It’s a good thing overall. The Xbone is finally even slightly compact and sleeker. Much, much better.

      • BradyAlucard

        Wait… NO MORE POWER BRICK?! Much better. Finally Microsoft listened. Please be true. Next up is replacing the AA batteries (that will piss some people off, come at me).

        • Ak74u

          Yes no more power brick it’s internal now did you not read the article and they already sell Xbox one controllers with rechargeable batteries. It called the play and charge kit you can either buy that or purchase a brand new controller that includes it

    • Drasadex

      By all means, please tell us why.

  • Ak74u

    Ahhhhhh ? It looks beautiful it’s a must buy so nice and smooth

    • BradyAlucard

      No need to IMO.

  • Imventing

    support 4k meaning itll play videos in 4k or will gameplay be in 4k? and if so will it be 60fps? or 30fps?

    • Kobrah

      It says 4k video so I assume that is only movies, etc, not games

      • BradyAlucard

        This.

    • lunator100hd .

      Are you kidding right?

      • Imventing

        nope

    imagine they sold this for $199? holy shit the sales who go through the roof..

    • BradyAlucard

      Good luck with that. It’s rumored to cost even more, about $100 more than the current model.

  • BradyAlucard

    Holy spam forgive me Charlie. I’ll be an angel now. Sorry, I had to do the stupid pun.

    • Guest

      Are you a robot? That was a pretty lame(awkward) joke

      • BradyAlucard

        And you’re a lame dickrider. You hypocrite lmao get out of here, troll.

  • lunator100hd .

    Im really curious for this new xbox one, if the price is relatively low im gonna buy it.

  • ToonToons22

    This thing’s awesome! I swear, if this actually was the Xbox One and was released at launch, it would have easily rivaled the PS4.

  • Roberto Pasina

    4k ahahaahaahaha

  • BradyAlucard

    Sorry, the price point is $299. The rumors before were wrong! Carry on.

  • lunator100hd .

    Will it be available only white because i prefer black.

  • PS4MASTERRACE

    They only need to sell another 40m units and they’ll catch up with Sony assuming they never sell another PS4 unit ever again LEL! 4K in Xbox terms means 1080p like 1080 meant 720p on the original Xbox One.

    • I play on PS4 and I even I know your a fgt

        lmaoooo!!

      Typical douche who just hates on Xbox because he believes that Playstation is just insanely superior. Put your big boy pants on and grow up. Both consoles are great. Both have great exclusives (although I do think Xbox has better ones). Can’t stand people like you
