The Xbox One S is now available to pre-order in three configurations including a 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB model. The 500GB model is, of course, the least expensive model priced at $299. The 1TB model is selling for $349. And, the 2TB model is $399.
Clearly, the 2TB model is a best option if you are considering the 1TB model — given the fact you get another terrabyte for just $50 more.
As well as backwards support for Xbox One games and Xbox 360 classics, the Xbox One S is highly anticipated given its support for 4k video. The console will play Ultra HD video from services such as Netflix, Amazon Video, and Vudu, as well as spin Ultra HD Blu-ray discs.
What’s more, the Xbox One will display High Dynamic Range (HDR) content on 4k TVs that support the format. (More on Xbox One S features here.)
The Xbox One S 2TB console will be released first on
August 31 August 2, 2016, while the 500GB and 1TB consoles will be released on December 30 August 23, 2016. [Editor: Updated release dates.]
Both Amazon and Best Buy are among the retailers already taking pre-orders. Both have all three console configurations priced exactly the same.
