For someone following the latest console news and rumors, neither of these announcements should be too surprising. At today's Microsoft E3 2016 briefing, the company announced two new additions to the Xbox family. The first was the Xbox One S, which is a slimmer version of the Xbox One with up to a 2TB hard drive and internal power supply. It is also capable of playing 4K content from Netflix and Amazon Video, and Blu-rays, and supports HDR. It will be available in August starting at $299 for a 500GB version and $349 for a 1TB version. That 2TB version comes in at $399. An updated version of the Xbox One controller is also coming with the S.

Also revealed at the end of the briefing was Project Scorpio, a new console with substantially more power. It will be packing an 8-core CPU, not unlike current consoles, but it will be paired with a new GPU with 6 TFLOPS of computing power. It is capable of 4K output at 60Hz and driving a VR experience, including Fallout 4 on VR. Whatever the final name of the new console will be, it is targeted to release Holiday 2017, so you will have plenty of time to prepare for its launch. It was stated that everything, games and accessories, for Xbox One will be compatible with it, so this should be considered an addition to the Xbox One family.
