Microsoft's 2TB Xbox One S arrives on August 2nd

Pre-orders arrive at the same time as retail sales begin.

You don't have to wait much longer to get Microsoft's higher-end 2TB Xbox One S. Microsoft has confirmed that the capacious console will reach both pre-order customers and retail shelves on August 2nd. As before, the $399/£350 you'll pay largely reflects that 2TB of storage. You'll get 4K (and HDR) video playback, the Bluetooth-capable controller and that more compact design on all Xbox One S models, including the more affordable 500GB and 1TB versions arriving sometime later this year. There's a bigger question looming, though: do you buy this and enjoy it right away, or wait for the supercharged Project Scorpio late in 2017?
