First look at the Xbox One S from E3 2016

The Xbox One S was one of the many things shown off at the company's E3 2016 press conference. Starting at $299, you get a 40% smaller console compared to the original, and support for 4K Ultra HD for Blu-ray movies and content partners like Netflix and Amazon Video. It comes with a new streamlined controller, too. We rushed over to Microsoft's media showcase after the press conference to give you a closer a look. Make sure to watch the video!

The new controller gets a textured grip for more comfort and Bluetooth radio for wireless connection to Windows 10 PCs, tablets, and phones.

The Xbox One S will debut in "robot white" color. It will be available for preorder beginning today and in stores starting August 2016:

  • 500GB Xbox One S is $299
  • 1TB Xbox One S is $349
  • 2TB Xbox One S will be available in select markets for $399
