Xbox One S, New Controller Officially Confirmed – E3 2016
In the wake of a metric ton of leaks, Microsoft officially confirmed the Xbox One S during E3 2016; it’s a new, slim version of the Xbox One that’s 40% smaller than the original Xbox One and ships with a new controller with a fancy textured grip. Here’s the official trailer and first images of the Xbox One S; pretty, eh?
What’s more, the Xbox One S features support for 4K televisions and HDR, or high dynamic range, in games and movies for a fuller spectrum of color. Also, the new controller employs Bluetooth, meaning that you can use it wirelessly with your PC without the need for fancy adapters- it’ll also expand the controller’s range. What’s more, the new Xbox One controller will have a bit of grippy material added to its underside so you can get a better grip on it (also, it’ll probably look dingy after a couple years of use). What the Xbox One S lacks, however, is a dedicated Kinect port- you’ll need a special adapter to use Kinect with your Xbox One.
A fancy launch edition of the Xbox One S will be available in August for $399, and it’ll ship with a 2 TB HDD; the 500 GB and 1 TB versions will cost $299 and $349 respectively.
