The new Xbox supports 4K (the original could only output HD-quality video), has a hard drive up to 2 TB (instead of 1 TB), and has the power supply built into the box itself—meaning no more massive power converters sitting on the floor between the console and the wall. The Xbox One S will start at $299, the same price as the current Xbox One model, and will be released in August.

All this is essentially a stopgap to whatever Microsoft launches in 2017. It teased a new console, called “Project Scorpio,” that will apparently involve “high-fidelity virtual reality.” Rather like Apple, it seems that Xbox is setting itself up to have a massive 2017.
