Xbox One S Hits Stores 2nd August

Today Microsoft has announced that the 2TB Xbox One S launch edition will begin hitting shelves on 2nd August.

All pre-orders will arrive on 2nd August and, for those of you that haven’t yet, you can still pre-order a 2TB Xbox One S launch edition through microsoftstore.com and select retailers for £349.99 ERP.

Xbox One S is the most compact Xbox yet, 40% smaller than the original Xbox One, and includes a built-in power supply. We also shifted one of the three USB ports and the pairing button to the front of the Xbox One S alongside the newly added IR blaster for increased accessibility.

Beyond the fresh new design, Xbox One S is the first and only console that allows you to watch Blu-ray movies and stream video in stunning 4K Ultra HD with High Dynamic Range (HDR). You’ll get to enjoy your favourite shows and movies in the clearest, most realistic video possible. With HDR support for video and gaming, Xbox One games like Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3, and Scalebound will look even better thanks to a higher contrast ratio between lights and darks, bringing out the true visual depth of your favourite games.

Xbox One S also comes bundled with the new Xbox Wireless Controller featuring textured grip, improved Xbox Wireless signal and added Bluetooth* support. The controller can be purchased as a standalone item for £49.99 ERP and will also be available on 2nd August.

Looking for additional Xbox One S hard drive options? We’ll also be offering the console with 1TB and 500GB hard drives for £299.99 ERP and £249.99 ERP, more details on the specific availability dates of these two options will be shared soon.

With the biggest blockbuster lineup of games in Xbox history coming to Xbox One and Windows 10 this year, platform updates to help you stay connected with friends on Xbox Live with even more games across your favourite devices and more hardware options available, 2016 and beyond is looking to be an incredible time to be an Xbox gamer.

*Bluetooth capabilities require Windows 10 devices running the Windows Anniversary Update
