Microsoft today introduced the new Xbox One S. The Xbox One S is already available for pre-order, and in case you missed Microsoft’s E3 briefing, here’s everything you need to know about the new Xbox.
It’s 40% smaller than the current Xbox One
The new Xbox One S is 40% smaller than the current Xbox One, which means it takes up less space and looks a lot better, too.
It has a vertical stand
The new Xbox One S includes a vertical stand which a lot of fans have been asking for on an Xbox One. Well, you finally have it, but you’ll have to pay $19.99 for it.
It has 2TB of internal storage
The new Xbox One will be available with 2TB of internal storage (the special edition). Microsoft will also be selling a 500GB variant and a 1TB variant.
It has an integrated power supply
With the Xbox One S, Microsoft is finally getting rid of the huge power brick and now, it has an internal power supply which is definitely very nice.

The new controller has a textured grip
