Microsoft arrived at E3 2016 and made a pretty huge reveal during the start of its press conference.
They were hard at work on developing a slimmer and sexier Xbox One model that came with a ton of viable features. That console was revealed to be the Xbox One S.

If you’re prepared to move on from the original Xbox One console iteration, the Xbox One S should be your next designated move.
