So here, with a 40 percent smaller footprint than the 2013 Microsoft Xbox, is the Xbox One S - ‘the smallest Xbox yet’. Already, that headline statement should furrow your brow; because between the lines, what Microsoft is mostly shouting about is the new Xbox’s form; whilst they’re merely whispering about its added functionality.
Probably the biggest hardware upgrade is the 4K Blu-Ray player and support for 4K playback, as streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon are increasingly offering UHD content. No, you cannot play processor-hungry 4K games. The power supply unit is now integrated, and there’s a new wireless controller with textured grips, improved range and Bluetooth; and for those with spatially-challenged living rooms, thanks to its reduced size the console can now be made to stand vertically too. That’s for you, single person.
