Unannounced Xbox One S Models Leaked, Themed Around Microsoft's Biggest Franchises

New 2 TB and 1 TB consoles are reportedly on the way.

76 Comments

Microsoft will release special-edition Xbox One S models themed around Gears of War 4 and Halo 5: Guardians, according to a new leak. Images of the unannounced consoles popped up online this week, courtesy of Xbox insider @ekim_gaf.

For the Gears of War console, the franchise's famous Crimson Omen is seen on the 2 TB system itself, alongside what looks like a blood splatter in the corner. The Xbox One controller sports a similar design. Check out the images below; their origin is unknown.

The bundle also reportedly comes with a digital copy of the $100 Gears of War 4 Ultimate Edition, which includes the game's season pass and other digital items. Another benefit of the Ultimate Edition is that it unlocks on October 7, four days before the game's public release. Whether or not the bundle, if genuine, also arrives early remains to be seen.

Ekim added that the system will cost $450, though this price is reportedly subject to change. The online tipster previously accurately revealed July 2016's Games With Gold lineup before its official announcement, so this person has a track record of accuracy.

Regarding the rumored Halo 5 1 TB Xbox One S, ekim posted an image of it earlier this week. It doesn't look all that special, however, as it's the normal white system and controller, presumably with a copy of the game bundled in. There is no word yet on pricing or a release date.

Asked about these rumored consoles, a Microsoft representative told GameSpot, "We do not comment on rumors or speculation."

The Xbox One S starts its rollout in August, though it appears only the most expensive version of the system will be available then. Gears of War 4 will be among the first games to support the new system's high dynamic range technology.

If the Gears of War 2TB Xbox one S console came with a physical copy of Gears of War 4 it would be a must buy, But a digital version is not for me.

I plan to order that Gears of War 4 bundle since it includes PC cross play. But Halo 5? Seriously? That's a budget bin title already and people can't even give away Xbox bundles on eBay with Halo 5 in them. What a poor choice.

@howthegodzkill: What are you talking about?? Halo 5 sold very well. Its 6 million and counting. Firefight is fun as hell and BTB and Arena are better than ever. 343 does need to fix the looping and hit registration though, but besides that it is a great freaking game.

@iaruelas: no, it shipped 6 mil, it sold barely 3 mil..

A score of 6/10 is still too high.

@Mirimon78: It sold barley 3 million but they recently announced it passed 5 million in 3 months. Your story doesn't add up.

@freeryu: you are confusing shipped and/or sold-in with sold-through. Again, it has sold-through half that much.

Am I missing the S part of the X1 S? How do you know this is the S version? I guess the picture with the controller on top of the X1 shows you it's the smaller version. Seems they should label it better, I don't know.

@CrusaderForever: I'm guessing all future Xbox's will be the slim version so no need to put the obvious on the box. The 360 slims boxes just said Xbox 360 as well as they were the only models out. And the Scorpio will say whatever the final name will be called.

@computernoises: Why? If you are getting a 1070 what's the point of the xb1? All the games for it are coming out on PC too and it is being replaced by the new xbox in less than a year.

@bacontophat45:

Why not have an Xbox One so he can play those games on a TV as well when he doesn't feel like playing at a desk or so he can play multiplayer with someone else in the house without having to build a second gaming PC just for that.

@Marky360: A steam link is a 50$ box that allows you to stream your pc to anywhere in your house, it's way cheaper than a xbox and most games don't have split screen anymore (and the ones that do often have it on pc) so you would likely need two xboxs to do multiplayer, doesn't really solve that problem.

@bacontophat45:

I know what a Steam link does that's what I mean why pay $50 for something that will just stream the games when you can pay a little more for something that will actually be able to play the game natively and you don't have to worry about all the lag issues that come with streaming? Also I don't know what you are talking about when it comes to split-screen when I was talking about multiplayer I meant the fact that now Xbox and PC gamers can play together so if he were to get an Xbox along with the PC he already has he could play his games along with someone else on the Xbox and only have to purchase one copy of the game. Split-Screen isn't needed to would be played online like normal.

@bacontophat45: Why are you desperately trying to talk him out of getting a kick ass Xbox S??? Do you even know if he has Windows 10?? Cos if he doesn't he will need a Xbox to play Xbox games. And even still not all Xbox exclusives will come out on Windows 10 store FYI. Most will but not all.

That's one thing I could never stand about PC gamers SMH... Except that the vast majority of gamers will always buy a console whether they have a PC or not. Consoles will always be for true gamers. You PC master bators are the worst community in gaming!!! No one cares about your specs! And Xbox Scorpio will be on par with 4k 60fps in one year.

@iaruelas: Dude this isn't even a pc vs console thing, this is a why are you spending 300$ on a thing that you already have access the everything that's on it?

And seriously even if Microsoft went back on the everything on pc thing. Literally everything they have that looks interesting is already confirmed for pc and if their is stuff later down the road that isn't on pc I did say in my original comment that part of the reason it's a bad idea to buy a xb1s is because Scorpio comes out soon making the S model a complete waste of money.

@computernoises: psst, can do both, you can run that second display port to your big screen and simply toggle display, or use a streaming device if it is too far.... been using tv's for monitors since the 70's. (Avoid any text heavy mmo on big screen... most ui wont make the font large enough).

@computernoises: I also live in a large house, I simply put my gaming rig in the same place as athe rest of my entertainment gear, in my theater room.

There is one last resort, aside from putting your pc in a more advantageous location, streaming. But, I don't recommend it for mmos or competative twitch type play, even the best game streaming will suffer latency.

@computernoises: Why don't you just buy a steam link than and do in house steaming? It's A LOT cheaper than a xbox, especially when you won't use it much.

Why waste time streaming the game to the TV when you can have a better experience actually playing the game on the TV with no lag?
