The slimmer console is called the Xbox One S. It ships this August for $299 (roughly £210 or AU$400), the same price as the current Xbox One.

It's 40 percent smaller than the original console, supports 4K video playback and 4K Blu-ray discs.

It'll hold up to a 2TB hard drive, twice the capacity of the current Xbox One, and supports High Dynamic Range (HDR) to bring out more color and deeper blacks in video and games with supported TVs.

Microsoft showed off a console with a slick white design at the show, with the Xbox logo in black.

The power supply is integrated into the console now, like with Sony's PlayStation 4, so you don't have to hide a giant power brick behind your home entertainment center.

The back of the Xbox One S features seven ports, including two HDMI ports and two USB ports.
