Major Nelson has announced this morning that the 2TB Xbox One S launch edition is now available in select markets at your local retailer and the Microsoft Store. Be aware that the demand is extremely high and, therefore, the 2TB launch edition is only available in limited quantities.
The newly designed Xbox One S key features include:
- Xbox One S offers a great value as one of the top 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray players on the market – which means you can watch your favorite movies in stunning 4K. The 2TB launch edition Xbox One S will be available for $399 USD with 1TB and 500GB Xbox One S options starting at $299 USD over the coming weeks.
- You can play over 100 console exclusives, and with High Dynamic Range (HDR) support for video and gaming, Xbox One titles like Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3, Scalebound and NBA 2K17 will look even better thanks to a higher contrast ratio between lights and darks, bringing out the true visual depth of your favorite games. And don’t forget about the growing library of backward compatible Xbox 360 games.
- You can also stream movies or TV shows in 4K Ultra HD with content from partners like Netflix available now. More content from Amazon Video and others is on the way!
- Xbox One S is 40 percent smaller than the original Xbox One, featuring a built-in power supply. No more brick!
There is still time to get your hands on the 2TB launch edition. Also, Xbox recently announced the first custom Xbox One S with the Xbox One S Gears of War 4 Limited Edition 2TB Bundle.
Microsoft is also gearing up to launch 500GB and 1TB Xbox One S bundles later this month so there will be more options from which to choose.
For the Kinect Owners –
To create a 40% smaller form factor and include an internal power supply, Microsoft removed the dedicated Kinect port from the back of the new console. Kinect for Xbox One will still be compatible with Xbox One S via the Xbox Kinect Adapter for USB connection and offers the same great experiences as the current console.
To help our fans who currently own an Xbox One console, Kinect for Xbox One, and new Xbox One S, Microsoft is offering a free Kinect Adapter. To claim your free Adapter, visit xbox.com/xboxone/kinectadapter.
