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

As an entry-level console, the Xbox One S comes jam packed with great features and offers a smooth user experience.

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...

Xbox One S vs Xbox One X comparison review

 

The Xbox One S is a great value games console, but with the more powerful One X now available, are you better off with the high-end console? Find out in our comparison.

For most people the Xbox One S will prove a better purchase than the One X. It's cheaper, it runs the same games, and you can grab one right now without waiting weeks for delivery.

Microsoft Xbox One S review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Microsoft Xbox One S is the first home video game console to contain a 4K Blu-ray drive. It may be a little unconventional but, with so many extra features, could the Xbox One S be the best value 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player on the market?

Microsoft Xbox One S UHD Blu-ray Player Review

 

Microsoft caused a bit of a sensation when they added an Ultra HD Blu-ray drive to their Xbox One S and instantly created the cheapest 4K disc spinner....

Superb 4K playback ; Decent build quality ; It's also a games console ; Great price

Noisy and slow in playback ; Game controller not ideal remote ; Only one HDMI output ; No Dolby Vision support ; No analogue audio ; No display

If you're in the market for a games console but also want Ultra HD Blu-ray playback, it's a bit of a no-brainer, in fact the Xbox One S is currently your only option. However even if you're not interested in the gaming aspect, it's still worth...
