Microsoft officially introduces the Xbox One S

Fresh from E3 2016 is Microsoft‘s new console. After being leaked with press images before its actual introduction, the Xbox One S is indeed now smaller in size and comes with a redesigned physique.


Headlining the updated internals is its support for 4K Ultra HD content, 4K Ultra HD Bluray, and HDR technologies for gaming and video playback. A USB port has also been moved up front for easier access while a new IR blaster is now built into the device. In addition, the new console no longer features a Kinect port and now demands a separate USB adaptor for it.
