Microsoft has finally confirmed that its previously announced Xbox One S console will be launching on August 2nd in 25 different markets.
The company also announced that a 1 TB version and a 500 GB version will be made available for $350 and $300 respectively, although no launch date has been provided for these products yet.
The 2 TB version will be available in limited quantities with a price tag of $400 in the U.S., Canada, U.K., and 22 other markets including France, Australia, Italy, Ireland, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, New Zealand, Netherlands, and Germany.
After the first leak of the console through a game forum last month, Microsoft gave its first official glimpse of the new console at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) event in Los Angeles. Since many criticized the original Xbox One for its bulkiness, particularly in comparison to Sony’s PlayStation 4, Microsoft made an effort to decrease the size. It is 40 percent smaller in size than the original Xbox One console which was announced back in 2013 and it now supports 4k and HDR videos. Additionally, it will be shipped with a brand new controller with grips and increased range. Also, if you want to buy spare controllers, it will be available at a price of $60.
