Xbox One S

 

Microsoft has made a new Xbox, only it's not entirely new. The Xbox One S is a 0.5 upgrade to the existing Xbox One, rather than its successor. But don't be fooled into thinking it's the same console, because this one has a few new tricks up its sleeves.

Xbox One S review

 

Frustrating ‘4K console' promises much on paper, but doesn't quite deliver...

Price ; Controller works well ; Rich colours ; Decent detail with 4K content

4K HDR images lack subtlety ; Lean sound ; Can’t pass-through 4K video, incompatible with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X ; Unintuitive menus

As tempting as the price may be, this ‘4K console' just doesn’t deliver

Xbox One S review: smaller, better, whiter

 

The same slick gaming platform you're used to, however now with upgraded 4K Ultra HD hotness

4K Ultra HD playback ; Slicker and slimmer console

Only 1.6TB of 2TB HDD usable

Xbox One S review: Great console and 4K Blu-ray player for the budget concious

 

The Xbox One S is affordable and relevant for today's market. With 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and Netflix support, it is the cheapest, most capable deck out

4K Ultra HD Blu-ray support with HDR ; 4K Netflix and Amazon Video playback ; 1080p HDR gaming ; Great wireless controller ; No power brick

Doesn't give you 4K gaming ; Slightly slower in operation to its beefier One X sibling

Microsoft Xbox One S review

 

The 4K console war has begun. Now bring on the PlayStation 4 Neo

You favourite games in pin-sharp detail ; The cheapest 4K Blu-ray player you can buy ; Sleek new design, sans power brick

PS4 still has the better exclusives ; Controller not rechargeable as standard

The best console you can buy, but for how long?

Xbox One S review

 

Xbox One S sets a new high point in console development

Vastly reduced physical footprint ; 4K & HDR streaming ; HDR gaming ; Xbox platform is steadily improving

Needs adapter for Kinect ; 4K gaming limited to upscaling

Xbox One S is the pinnacle of what Microsoft set out to create with the original Xbox One. As the new de facto Xbox, the One S is everything a game console should be: sleek, powerful and well-stocked. It's not quite at Xbox One X's level in terms of...
