New Xbox One S plays Blu-ray Disc movies and streams 4K video.Building on the introduction of its Xbox One S console last earlier this summer, Xbox announces a 2TB Xbox One S version, which will begin hitting shelves in select regions on August 2 (you can pre-order a 2TB Xbox One S through microsoftstore.com and select retailers).
In addition to a fresh new design, which is 40 percent smaller than the original Xbox One, Xbox One S is the first and only console that allows you to watch Blu-ray movies and stream video in stunning 4K Ultra HD with High Dynamic Range (HDR). That means you’ll get to enjoy your favorite shows and movies in the clearest, most realistic video possible. With HDR support for video and gaming, Xbox One games like Gears of War 4, and Scalebound will look even better thanks to a higher contrast ratio between lights and darks, bringing out the true visual depth of your favorite games.
Xbox One S also comes bundled with the new Xbox Wireless Controller featuring textured grip, improved Xbox Wireless signal and added Bluetooth support. The controller can be purchased as a standalone item for $59.99 and will also be available on August 2. All Xbox One games, accessories, and Xbox Live services will work with Xbox One S.
The 2TB launch edition Xbox One S will be available in limited quantities for $399 on August 2. Other Xbox One S hard drive options are available: a console with 1TB and 500GB hard drives for $349 and $299, respectively, so you can choose the right console size console for you.
