This image could be our first glimpse at Microsoft’s revamped Xbox One.
It’s been rumoured for months that Microsoft has plans to reveal a revamped Xbox One at E3 2016 during the company’s press conference, which at this point is less than 24 hours away. The purported render, which depicts a smaller version of the Xbox one, was originally posted on the popular video game enthusiast forum, NeoGAF. The leaked image indicates that the new console features a 40 percent smaller build, two terabyte hard drive and also has the ability to output 4K video.
The Xbox S seems significantly smaller than the original Xbox One, and in stark contrast to the dark aesthetic the original Xbox One adopted, the Xbox One S seems poised to be completely white. Build wise, the Xbox One S also seems to have a lot in common with Sony’s PlayStation 4, including a built-in power brick.
Similar to the Xbox 360, the Xbox One S also looks like it will also be able to stand vertically. It’s expected that this revamped console is a stop-gap measure for Microsoft until next year when the company plans to release a significantly more powerful version of the console.
At E3, Sony is expected to reveal a new significantly more powerful 4K-capable – both in terms of games and video content – console called the Playstation 4 Neo, though little is known about the rumoured system so far.
