Even as we were getting a first look at a first custom-edition Xbox One S, along with its matching "Gears of War 4" controller, we were still missing a crucial bit of information: namely, the release date for the 2TB console that's 40 pecent smaller than the original Xbox One. It's also is the first console that allows users to watch Blu-ray movies and stream video in 4K Ultra HD with High Dynamic Range (HDR). Packaged with a new controller, with textured grip, improved Xbox Wireless signal and added Bluetooth support, the Xbox One S retails for $399 and launches on August 2nd. 1TB and 500GB hard drives options will also be available for $349 and $299, respectively.
