Now Playing: Xbox One S - Official E3 2016 Reveal Trailer

[UPDATE] Microsoft officially confirmed the Xbox One S as part of its E3 briefing today. As rumored, the system is 40 percent smaller than the existing model. It also comes with HDR and 4K video support, among other new features.

The system starts at $300 for a 500 GB version, and goes on sale in August. It also comes with a slightly redesigned controller, featuring textured grip, increased wireless range, and Bluetooth support. Check out the overview video below to learn more.

A 1 TB version will sell for $350, while the 2 TB edition will go for $400. Additionally, the Xbox One vertical stand will sell for $20, while the new controller will go for $60 by itself.

The original story is below.

The leaks keep coming. Following leaks of Recore, Dead Rising 4, and Titanfall 2 information, images of the rumored Xbox One slim console have been posted on Neogaf and twitter.

Neogaf user KawabataSan posted the full image of the console, and user Ekim followed up with a picture of it standing upright. It's apparently called Xbox One S and it looks smaller and more box-y than the original. It also appears to have an infrared blaster on the bottom part for controlling other devices. The right part of the console also appears to be textured. In addition, the power brick is apparently housed within the console.

In the Neogaf thread, Jason Schreier of Kotaku affirmed that the image is, indeed, the Xbox One S console, codenamed Edmonton.

The image also details the new features coming to slim console. As rumored, it'll be significantly smaller than the launch console--by 40 percent--and it'll have a 2TB hard drive. It'll also support HDR and 4K video, and will come with a vertical stand.

The console originally leaked back in May, alongside rumors that Microsoft is prepping a more powerful Xbox One for release in 2017. The company is also rumored to be designing a new controller for the console, which seems to be the controller shown in the image above.

This is how much the slim costs?! Then the Scorpio is probably going to be another $500 box

Nope!

@girlusocrazy: $500 for the most powerful console and you dont want it. Didnt people dish out money for the Ps3 for $599.99 once?

@kentray1985: Didn't turn out so great did it?

If you target high end enthusiasts you get a niche product.

When they took out the SD card slots and BC and introduced the cheaper slim it got a lot more traction. MS is not hitting that with the S, and the Scorpio will indeed be niche if it's a high price

@girlusocrazy: People will buy the most powerful console. It being priced at $500 is not going to stop anybody. It sure isnt stopping people from getting the PSvr bundle for $499.99 nor is it stopping gamers from buying expensive gaming rigs. You're underestimating the power of the gamers. They give us a great product with hreat games then we will buy. The Neo and the Scorpio are the true consoles of this generation and I will own them both!

@kentray1985: No.... no. The PS3 was in 3rd place last gen, and guess what was first, the Wii. Sure maybe the Wii was an anomaly, but people still want more bang for the buck which is why the 360 clobbered the PS3 until the slim came out.

Who buys all the expensive gfx cards? Niche gamers. Who buys the expensive consoles? Niche gamers. These more powerful consoles will have a rough start.

You think everyone wants the best, nope, look how 4k TVs are in less than 10% of homes, look how expensive consoles consistently flop. You're way overestimating the hardcore.

@girlusocrazy: Stop being irrational, gamers buy better hardware for better graphics and framerate. This has been what Playstation gamers have been bashing the Xbox one for the whole time. Now you telling me graphics not important just because Sony will be the one lagging behind this time around. I just dont get you gamespot dudes. You will say anything to belittle Xbox one even when they doing great things.

4K is being tossed around as a buzzword by Microsoft and Sony a lot these days. Be careful, because the games are not processing in 4K. Top of the line PCs running brand new $600 nvidia gtx 1080s still run sub 60 fps in 4k. it is Very hard to do. That said, if a console can upscale games to display 4K that is still pretty great.

@version2p7: Because these are childish grown ups. They dont know how to root for games. Not every game on Ps4 have to be a visual masterpiece. Gameplay and fun factor are the most important things

It's amazing; they've managed to design something that looks ugly in every known decade of fashion.

all I have to say, is that if the new Microsoft console can run 4K natively and can lock in that 1080p/60fps moving forward.

than the Neo better bring just as much to the table. Otherwise they will lose the most obvious advantage that they had up to this point.

guess we'll find out, not tonight.....but soon.

@Jdzspace: Just because it can put out 4k doesnt mean it runs in 4k. I assume they mean it can output shows in 4k, but it still can run games at that resolution.

With my xb1 being built like a tank, dead silent, showing no sign that it will fail anytime soon and its look doesnt matter to me so i think there's no way i m going to switch to another one other than the more powerful scorpio.

@zinten:

I'd rather get this then the Xbox One Scorpio I don't have a 4K TV and I don't like VR it looks like a gimmick to me so I don't really need the Scorpio. I want the Xbox One S because my current Xbox One is a behemoth I mean it's seriously massive and I'd like to be able to take it over a friends house if I want so the S being 40% smaller and having the power supply internally is great it's exactly what I wanted.

So why is everyone so excited and half way out the door to rush and buy this thing when something that is more powerful is on the way. Why not just wait and save up and buy the better product? Am I missing something?

Avatar image for deactivated-57a6e1f18f320

@guitarboy2954: I'm happy with xbox one itself, it feels more cinematic than what ill get from xbox one slim. plus my tv is 55 inch old school but runs at 1080p and I saw a 4k tv and think they are a gimmick. Hopefully, xbox one original will sell a lot more when its price goes down.

@guitarboy2954:

I don't want the Scorpio I don't have a 4K Tv(nor do I want one really) and I think VR is a gimmick so I don't need the Scorpio. On the other hand though the Xbox One S is exactly what I want as my current Xbox One is huge and I want something that is smaller and more portable. Xbox One S is perfect for that so I'm excited to pick this baby up. The Scorpio is nice for those that care a lot about graphics and absolutely HAVE to have the best looking visuals but for me I don't care so much about that i'm just happy that all the games from here on out will play on all the 3 versions of the Xbox One. Maybe I'll move to the Scorpio a few years from now maybe not.

@Marky360: Are you really this fucking stupid? It isn't a conspiracy theory when it is a fact. Scorpio is a more powerful Xbox One, what part of that are you not understanding? Games will perform worse on the regular Xbox One S when developers start focusing on the Scorpio, and they will. It amazes me how losers like you can't handle the cold, hard truth and would rather just waste your money. It has nothing to do with having a 4K TV or not, moron.

@pound-u:

Are you really this big of a fucking idiot Phil Spencer his self has already stated no one will be left behind and that anything you can play on the Xbox Scorpio will indeed to be playable on the Xbox One and Xbox One S. I mean what the **** are you deaf or mentally incapable of understanding spoken words? You dipshit he also said that if you don't have a 4K TV then the Scorpio might not be for you and you would be better suited to play on the Xbox One or One S. This is because what will likely happen is games will be developed on the Xbox One and then they will be put on the Scorpio with 4K textures and a better framerate. THAT IS THE ONLY DIFFERENCE YOU FUCKING MORON!!!!!!

@Marky360: Wow, you really are a moron. Thanks for proving my case. Only an idiot like you would believe what Spencer would say. They are always lying, dipshit. No, games will not be developed on Xbox one and then ported to Scorpio. I guarantee you that games will be better on Scorpio and then be gimped on the One. It may not happen with the first wave of games, but it will happen eventually. If you weren't a fucking moron, you'd understand that.

Oh Jesus Christ were dropped on you're head as a child? You have got to be the biggest idiot I have ever seen. Listen moron unless you have some type of proof that validates what you are saying then all you are doing is blowing bullshit. it's like I said originally you are nothing but a dumb ass idiot conspiracy theorist that's fucken paranoid. Maybe you should shut the **** up instead of speaking on matters you have absolutely no clue about.

@Marky360: My proof? Where's YOUR proof, **** face? It doesn't matter what Spencer says because he and other publishers always lie. No, it isn't conspiracy theory bullshit, moron. It is FACT. We've seen it happen before, but you are too fucking stupid to notice. Maybe take your own advice and stop speaking about things you have no fucking clue about, dipshit.

@guitarboy2954: Some people want it now. Some people want a 4k blu-ray player. Some people aren't going to buy the more powerful thing as soon as it comes out. Some people have enough money to not care. Some people aren't thinking that far ahead.

@Mogan: Less than 10% of households had a 4k TV in March 2016

So maybe a percentage of those people will get it... But will probably wait for scorpio anyway

It isn't more powerful than the existing Xbox one so no point in buying this. You can go buy an external 2tb drive for so much less.
