The Xbox One S will be released on August 2nd at the price of £350, and will come boxed with an updated controller, which has a stronger signal as well as a textured grip and Bluetooth support. You’ll also be able to buy the updated controller on the very same day.

The Xbox One S is 40% smaller than current Xbox One models, has a built-in power supply, and is the first console that allows you to watch Blu-ray movies and stream video in 4K Ultra HD with High Dynamic Range (HDR). HDR will also help games look better thanks to a higher contrast ratio between lights and darks.

The console will initially be available with a 2TB hard drive, although coming later will also be 1TB and 500GB models which will be priced at £300 and £250 respectively. Microsoft has yet to announce any firm release dates for these two models.

If you haven’t got an Xbox One yet, it seems that now may be a good time to get one in your home.
