You'll have to wait for August for your new Xbox One S -- but you can preorder one right now.
But there's a catch: while there will eventually be versions of the One S for $299 (500GB) and $349 (1TB), the only one with an August ship date is the $399 2TB model. Of course, many gamers will consider that model to be a great deal, given the cavernous hard drive. All Xbox One S models, meanwhile, retain all the features of the original model with a sleek enclosure that's 40 percent smaller, and includes a redesigned wireless controller.
The One S can be preordered at the Microsoft Store, Best Buy, Amazon and GameStop, among others. (Ship dates for the lesser expensive models are currently listed as late December, but that's a common tactic for games and gaming hardware that's expected at an indeterminate date in the fourth quarter.)
