The lights are on
Microsoft has announced that the 2TB launch edition Xbox One S – the 40 percent smaller system – is coming this fall.
The Xbox One S is out on August 2 in select territories (see below), and is priced at $399. The smaller versions (1TB and 500GB) do not have a release date yet, but will come out in 2016, according to Microsoft. Those systems run $349 and $299, respectively.
The company says the launch edition is out in "limited quantities," but no exact numbers are specified.
The system comes with the new Xbox One S controller, which is also available on its own for $59.99 on the day.
The initial wave of countries for the system are: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, UK and United States.
