Microsoft has showcased its Xbox One S console on June 13, 2016 during the E3 2016 press conference. Now, with the console expected to be released tomorrow August 2, 2016, it seems the company has already started shipping out the console for gamers who pre-ordered it.

The Xbox One S is 40% smaller than the Xbox One, supports the use of a stand for vertical orientation, has a controller sync button in front, and no longer has an external power supply. According to Microsoft, the Xbox One S supports 4K resolution videos and HDR color using HDR10.

The Xbox One S will be released in three internal storage variants of 2TB, 1TB and 500GB. The 1GB and 500GB variants will be available to purchase starting from August 23, 2016 while the 2TB variant is available starting tomorrow, August 2, 2016.

  • 500GB – $299
  • 1TB – $349
  • 2TB – $399
