Well, thanks to the folks over at NeoGAF, we have our first (leaked) official look at one of the cards currently residing up Microsoft’s sleeve. According to sources inside Microsoft, the new machine is called the Xbox One S (for slim) and is 40% smaller than the current Xbox One.
Not only is the machine smaller, but according to the images leaked the Xbox One S will support 4K Ultra HD video, HDR as well as the ability to stand upright, instead of taking up the same space an old school VCR does as it does currently. The console also features, a streamlined controller, however from the photos it’s really hard to determine what on the gamepad itself has changed, other than the entire package coming in white.
Other changes to the console beside the slimming down, is the inclusion of a 2TB hard drive, as well as an internalized powerbrick, something Microsoft has not done before.
With E3 right around the corner, I’m sure we’ll hear much more about the Xbox One S, as well as the supposed more powerful Xbox One currently rumored to be in production for a 2017 release.
