Xbox One Finally Looks Like a Next-Gen Console
Xbox One S is 40% smaller than the current Xbox One. It also looks 40% cooler (give or take). There's a big vented area on the top surface for a fan, which helps with a different kind of coolness. The vertical stand is also available, but it will cost you $19.99. Not to mention, the suggested retail price of $299 for a 500 GB doesn't come with any games. Xbox One S will also be available with 1TB ($349) and 2TB ($399) internal storage variants.
Physical Power Button
The Xbox One S has a physical power button, unlike its predecessor which uses touch capacitance to power on and off.
The Xbox controller has received a makeover as well. If you don't like the white version you can create your own at the Xbox Design Lab for $79.99. For an additional $9.99 you can get it engraved with your gamertag.
The controller also has bluetooth functionality, which will enable you to play it on your Windows 10 PC. The wireless range is also improved.
No More Brick on the Power Cable
The brick power cable is history. Xbox One S is instead using an internal power supply, which is nice.
