Xbox One S Gears of War 4 mini-Review in blood red


This special limited edition version of the Xbox One S is no average re-coloring. The folks responsible for tricking this console out have taken extra steps to make certain the device was no simple skin-job. This device looks like it's been customized...

Prior to the official launch of the Xbox One S (1TB), Microsoft Singapore invited us to their place for a quick peek at the gaming console.

4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player ; Slicker and slimmer console

Only 1.6TB of 2TB HDD usable

The Xbox One S could be 4K Blu-ray's white knight. And it plays games, too.


The $300 Xbox One S will be the cheapest 4k Blu-ray player when it's released in August, making it a potent weapon in the disc format's battle against 4K streaming video.

Xbox One S official: 40 percent slimmer, 4K video playback, $299 this August


Microsoft's new Xbox One makes the original console look gigantic by comparison.

Xbox One S (& HDR gaming) review


Xbox One S comes with UHD Blu-ray, 4K/HDR streaming and most importantly HDR gaming. Can it put Microsoft back in the spotlight?

HDR gaming! ; UHD Blu-ray drive ; Some apps support 4K/HDR streaming ; Excellent controller ; Price

Full HD resolution in games (upscaled to 4K) ; Still relatively high power consumption for streaming ; Not as powerful as PS4 Pro ; Still lacks 4K/HDR in several apps
