The Xbox One first made its debut back in November 2013, releasing in its bulkier big-box form with a swathe of TV-centric features promoted on the box. As time has worn on, Microsoft has widely swept the focus on TV into the background and geared the newer iterations of the console towards the pure gaming experience that can come from one of the two most powerful gaming consoles available today.
The Kinect 2.0, which was originally packed in with every Xbox One sold, was removed from the box and sold as a separate luxury accessory. This made the consoles more affordable both to manufacture as well as to buy. Better still, the Xbox One was updated post-launch to be backwards compatible with a wide range of Xbox 360 games in both digital and on-disc forms, a fantastic move which increased the games library of the Xbox One by several hundred overnight.
With the Xbox One S, which was released in August 2016, Microsoft has created a much slimmer, streamlined version of the Xbox One which is not only slightly more powerful but features the ability to play 4K Blu-rays and video playback, HDR capabilities as well as 4K upscaling. Better still, the Xbox One S is bound to fit better on most shelves and entertainment units. Seriously, that first Xbox One was a beast and the Xbox One S might be one of the most valuable updates a console has ever seen.
As time has worn on, the Xbox One S has seen some tremendously good value bundles across a variety of sites, often packing in high-quality first-party titles such as Forza Horizon 3, Gears of War 4 and Halo 5: Guardians. Every now and then a true bargain priced Xbox One S bundle will emerge before selling out quickly and this is likely to keep happening in the run up to Microsoft’s latest iteration on the Xbox One – Project Scorpio – which is set for release near the end of 2017.
