XBOX ONE S
Xbox One S is one of Microsoft’s latest offerings from its well-known range of gaming consoles which is designed to be lighter and smaller as well as created with video aficionados in mind. It is a revision of the original Xbox One hardware with a streamlined form factor. Its new casing is 40% smaller than the original design, and supports vertical orientation with a stand.
Its size may be smaller but its controllers have been improved slightly to cater for 4k video output as well as some other changes in its structure. The capacitive power and eject keys were replaced by physical buttons, the side USB port and controller sync button were moved to the front of the console, and its power supply is integrated into the console's casing rather than sitting externally. Xbox One S requires a USB adapter to attach a Kinect sensor, as it no longer includes the proprietary port used on the original model.
Not only does it gives you storage from 500GB to 2TB, but it allows you to play over 100 console exclusives and a growing library of Xbox 360 games. In addition, it's the only console with 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, 4K video streaming, and HDR. The 2 TB model was released on August 2, 2016, and 1 TB and 500 GB models were released on August 23, 2016 and a Gears of War 4 special edition was also released.
