Microsoft has been rumored to have a slimmer Xbox One on tap for E3 and guess what? It’s been leaked!
What do we know about the above leaked Xbox One S? So far the leak says it will be a 2TB (!) beast of a machine, slimmed down, white, with the ability to output in 4K and HDR. There’s a vertical stand for those that like to live on the edge. The controller is “streamlined” but we’re not 100% sure what that exactly means. It’s not a lot to go on but damn!
Okay so this is a leak from NeoGaf. Which means it’s most likely very legit. I like it but it pisses me off a tad. My OG Xbox One is a 500GB model that filled up immediately and I had to spend another $120 on a 5TB external hard drive to keep playing. Knowing that games need 40-50GB installs, Microsoft and even Sony should have stuffed larger hard drives in at launch OR made the drives swappable.
Sigh, I digress. This is a sexy beast of a slim model and I want to know more about the controller. It’s one of those things where I’ve gotten so used to it, I don’t know what I would do with a streamlined model. The options to pump out 4K is great for people with those TVs or those sitting on the fence about buying one. I’ve been very serious about buying one but none of my equipment has been capable. Maybe it’s time for a whole house upgrade? Wonder how the missus would handle that?
What do my Microsoft and Xbox geeks think about this leak? Like I said, it’s sexy. I think the 2TB will sell like hot cakes because more storage is good news. Plus it’s that sweet sweet white. Button mash your way to the comments and sound off, tell me if you’d buy this or not.
