Xbox One Slim specs with 4K video, not 4K games

We’re sure most of you have already seen the massive leak, but if you haven’t let us remind you – the Xbox One Slim is real and it could be coming to market as the Xbox One ‘S’.

We have been hearing about this new Xbox One console all year thanks to rumors and now we have the first pictures to share, apparently leaked by Microsoft themselves on the Xbox website.

The pictures were captured by Neogaf and this is what the Xbox One S will look like. It seems that we are going to be getting a white and black console which is 40% smaller than the current model.

It also has a 2TB hard drive for games and 4K support for video, but not games. We are seeing some confusion on social media with gamers thinking that the 4K implies that games will be boosted up to 4K resolution.


However, based on the accompanying information beside these pictures – the 4K will be for video only, so in other words you’ll be able to enjoy things like YouTube and Netflix in 4K – live sporting events as well.

You’ll also need to know that there’s no external power brick as well – fantastic news. The power brick will be internal and it should add to the overall slickness of the console.

There’s no details on price yet, but Microsoft’s E3 2016 press conference is coming up very soon so expect a full reveal then.

On first impressions though, do you love the design? Is 4K video, not games a disappointment for you or not?
