Microsoft unveils the "slimmer, sleeker" Xbox One S

Phil Spencer kicked off Microsoft's E3 2016 conference by unveiling the Xbox One S, and it's quite the handsome devil. Shown in a sleek white finish which can be stood vertically, the new model is 40% smaller and boasts both a 2TB internal HDD as standard and an integrated power supply - finally that extra brick is a thing of the past. The Xbox One S will support HDR gaming, as well as 4K Ultra HD video for blu-ray and streaming.
