The Xbox One S isn't just slimmer and sleeker. It also has some added features for video and gameplay. You'll now be able to play Ultra HD Blu-ray Discs and stream video in 4K via content providers, such as Netflix and Amazon Video. The Xbox One S also supports High Dynamic Range (HDR) support for video and gaming, so you can experience rich, luminous colors in compatible games. With a higher contrast ratio, HDR brings out the visual depth of your games and media.
Microsoft shifted one of the three USB ports, the pairing button, and an added IR blaster to the front of the Xbox One S for better accessibility. To achieve its compact size, Microsoft had removed the dedicated Kinect port found on the original Xbox One. You can still use the Kinect with the Xbox One S, but you'll have to buy the Xbox One Adapter for USB connection in order to do so.
The Xbox One S also comes with a redesigned Xbox One Wireless Controller. It features a textured grip for enhanced comfort. The Xbox Wireless signal performance has been improved to ensure a reliable connection to the console and up to twice the wireless range. To enable an easier wireless connection to your Windows 10 devices, Microsoft also added Bluetooth support*. The redesigned thumbstick design significantly reduces wear to help maintain accuracy and smooth rotation over the life of the controller.
This Xbox One bundle comes with Sea of Thieves.
*Please note that Bluetooth capabilities require Windows 10 devices to be running the Windows Anniversary Update.
An Xbox Live Gold subscription is required for access to online multiplayer features.
