Microsoft reveals the new, slimmer Xbox One S, coming this August

TechCrunch TechCrunch 13/06/2016 Brian Heater

That’s “S” for “slim.” Or maybe “svelte.” Or “skinny.” Or…”something.” As anticipated and later full-on leaked, the Xbox has slimmed down just in time for swimsuit season with the One S. Microsoft revealed the upgraded console this morning at its E3 kickoff event here in Los Angeles.

The Xbox One S is 40-percent slimmer than the last version. Inside you’ll find a hard drive sporting up to 2TB and an integrated power supply. The new console features a built-in IR blaster and does 4K video. Along with the S, Microsoft is also introducing a new wireless controller with increased range.

The One S will be available this August, starting at $299.
