Hey guys, what’s up today, we’re unboxing, the new Xbox One S, which retails for $400 right now, but it will retail for $300. Now that one’s gonna have 500 gigabytes. This one has two terabytes of storage for $100 more. So if you want that storage, you know, you should get it now instead of waiting, but yeah, we’re gonna go ahead and open this up, we’re going to check what’s in the box. And we’re going to go ahead and compare it against the original Xbox One. Alright, so let’s tick the box here. And let’s bring in here so you guys can see we have two pieces of tape here, keeping the box close and the box is very small.
So it’s just safe to assume the actual console is going to be very tiny. Here, the first thing we have is something here. Really weird thing telling you how to put on the dock for the Xbox, the cables, the controller how to connect all that. So it’s just a startup guide, but you know,
kind of like a just kind of weird. Let’s go ahead and pick up the second box. Let’s see what’s in here first. But this one side for a second. Alright, so here we have the regular itself. And then we’re gonna have here info and a 14 day trial on Xbox Live. Or you can see it where you can have that. Let’s go. There’s another little box in here. And that should do it. Let’s see what’s in this special box here.
So this is how you’re going to need to connect to your Xbox, which I think is really awesome. You know, gets rid of a lot of headaches trying to fit that power brick somewhere. And
let’s have a fire hazard. So that’s that we have an HDMI cable, which is different than the last generations HDMI cable and looks a little bit better, maybe less plasticky and more of a matte rubber. And of course, we have the new Xbox One controller, which the only difference here is a little bit of the design. And then we have the ability to connect to Bluetooth devices now. So you can connect to your Windows PC play games. And I’m going to guess you’re going to somehow be able to connect it to Mac, and get that to work.
So yeah, I mean, first impressions, it definitely feels better than the original version, but
just kind of I don’t know, it’s very plasticky. It’s a little bit more blocky. And I thought I mean, you do have a little bit of a textured grip back here. But aside from that, you know, not a big difference, the controller still definitely feels way better. Alright, so now let’s go ahead and remove these support here. And it weighs quite a bit. It’s definitely a solid feeling console than the original Xbox One, which you can just feel that the weight is not distributed. This just feels like you know, it’s just one big piece of console.
And of course I opened it upside down. So let’s go ahead and flip this over so you can see it. And there it is. That’s how it looks guys it looks really clean and really nice. I didn’t think I would like it that much. But it kind of looks really cool, especially with this back black here. So it kind of matches but uh yeah, let’s take a closer look at it here. So you guys can see we have all these kind of grills and vents here for it to breathe. Then the other side is just you know matte plastic but the whole thing is Matt there’s no glossy end to it like we had on the last Xbox.
And here it says you know moved the console without first removing discs in which of course we know we have more grille vents there and more grille vents here. So that’s what they’re doing to prevent this console from overheating and potentially getting something like a red ring. We have the Ethernet we have USB we have the Connect connector they had said that there was a special adapter for it so I’m not sure what they’re going to use here. But yeah, I are out and she end HDMI out. But yeah, no direct connection to connect if you have that from the last generation, but your I guess have to get an adapter because I don’t see it in the box anywhere. So I be wrong but that’s what I see right now.
Of course the whole bottom is matte plastic and you can kind of see it there. It looks very nice and very clean. I would have preferred a black version of this just because I think it would match more with the overall look of work. I have my console, but we’re gonna see in a second. Go ahead and try out the stand. Let’s see how this goes in. Look for. Okay, so here we have two holes right there, you can see those right there, I’m going to assume just kind of goes in. And somehow clips in there. Let’s see.
It’s not clipping in. Okay, you have to press it pretty hard to clip in. And there you go. So that’s how it look, standing up, which I think that’s how I’m going to put it just so it takes up less space, we’ll see. We’ll see. So we’re gonna move on. And we’re gonna check it out where my original Xbox One is, and just kind of see the size difference. you know what, I’ll just bring the xbox one here, so you guys can see. So let me just go ahead and do that real quick. Alright, guys, so here is the Xbox One. And here is the Xbox One S matched up against the corners. And you can see the impossible size difference, they really brought it down by a big chunk, we no longer have of this ugly, glossy black, which was terrible, it is scratched up a lot, you from just cleaning, the dust is scratched up.
So this won’t be happening here. I really just prefer the overall look and feel of this guy. And I can’t wait for them to come up with more colors with this, because it’s gonna look really cool. Let’s see, they’re going to take out like some Gears of War edition. And many more versions. So we’ll see that when they come out. But yeah, that’s that right here. And you can kind of see that I feel like this would be easier if playing with a vacuum to remove some of the dust opposed to this, which, you know, those girls when there is really hard to get into. And that’s that this forcibly, glows a different color to and it’s an actual button, which is really nice. I kind of didn’t like this touch sensitive button here. I prefer that button right there. But yeah, you can kind of see the different. Look there. Yeah, the disk eject button right there.
And I’m going to assume there is something for the controller here somewhere. Or maybe we use the same one, windows, we’ll check it out. And we’ll see we do have a USB Port on the front on this guy. And then we of course have the ports on the back. So I said, it’s on the front as opposed to the side. So you have this in an entertainment console, you can just connect things right to the front of it. But I never reminded the side one, I thought that was fine. So let’s go ahead and check it out. See how they look put where I have my Xbox One. Alright guys. So here we have the Xbox One S and this is where I originally had my Xbox One. And I do have a PlayStation four too. So knock it fit both of these here.
But let’s go ahead and remove the bass. And let’s see how it looks sideways. I’m not sure how to remove the bass, or you just pull it right off. Okay, good. Cool, cool. Here, you can see all the cables I had for my original Xbox One, you can see the power adapter, how big that was. That’s ginormous. Then we have the Connect adapter right here. And let’s just go ahead and place it here for now. There you go. That’s how it looks definitely much better than the old version. I’ve put the old version on top just to see. And there we go. So you can kind of see the difference in camera. It’s definitely much, much bigger difference in real life than it is here. But you can see how much space it’s not taking up, which is great.
Now you be wondering if it’s worth getting this new Xbox One S or just waiting for the Xbox Scorpio to come out. If you already have an Xbox One, I would suggest just waiting and then you will upgrade to the you know, actual upgraded version of the Xbox. If you’re looking to save some more space on your entertainment middle. Or you’re looking for a 4k blu ray player, then this is a good options. This is one of the cheapest 4k blu ray players in the market right now. So not only will you get that, but you’re going to get a kick-ass xbox one that you can play video games on.
Now let’s go ahead here and connect this just to show you how the light glows on the Xbox One. It’s a white glow, it looks really cool. And it’s not flickering in real life. That’s just the cameras. So you know don’t worry about that sign it look like that. Looks really nice. It’s not super bright. So it’s you know, it just looks like it’s in the Xbox. It doesn’t look like a light looks really cool. So yeah, guys, that’s pretty much it.
This is the only other button you’re going to get here. Unless the you know, controller pairing button is somewhere else. Oh, there’s another button right there. That’s the brother controller or something. Yep, there we go. And yeah, so that’s pretty much it guys. That is the Xbox One S if you guys liked it, make sure leave a thumbs up. I’ll be making more article soon. I know I haven’t made some in a while. But I’m going to start to get back into it. I’ve just been focusing on other things recently. So yeah, thanks for watching this guys. It and I’ll catch you guys in the next one. Goodbye.
