The Xbox One S 2TB console arrives in stores today and if you are yet to grab one then you may want to considering doing so.
Microsoft's slimline Xbox One is not only 40 percent smaller than the original Xbox One, but it also packs in a few new features too, making it quite an attractive proposition. Perhaps one of the biggest new features of the console is that it is now the cheapest 4K Blu-Ray player on the market. With the 2TB version coming in at just under £350 and the future 1TB and 500GB versions coming in even cheaper. This is sure to appeal to movie buffs out there, as well as those looking for a way to make use of their new 4KTVs.
No only will you be able to play 4K Blu-Rays but you'll also be able to stream 4K TV Shows and Movies via the likes of the Xbox Store, Amazon and Netflix. Of course, while the console does not support 4K gaming, it will be able to upscale and with HDR support promised for first party games, the on-screen action will be more colourful than ever.
As well as these new features, the console has also been redesigned, giving it an attractive robot white colour, a slimmer look and additions such as an IR Blaster, allowing you to configure your Xbox One S to turn on other devices such as your audio/video receiver and cable/satellite receiver.
Other features include the addition of the new Xbox Wireless Controller, which comes with a sleeker, more streamlined design with up to twice the wireless range. It also has a new textured grip and Bluetooth, making it compatible with Windows 10 PCs, tablets and phones. The 2TB Xbox One S also comes with a vertical stand, allowing you to place the console upright, saving even more space.
Look out for pre-order information on the 500GB and 1TB versions soon and in the meantime don't forget that you can buy the 2TB version now.
