We gave the Xbox One S a respectable 4/5 score in our review, praising the console’s small size, 4K game upscaling, built-in 4K Blu-ray player, and the improved grippy controller. Here’s our verdict:

“The Xbox One S is far better than the original Xbox One, with improvements on every front. It’s smaller, it’s prettier, and it includes a greater number of features. Sure, the gaming element is almost unchanged, but HDR gaming compatibility means at least a degree of future-proofing. Then there’s the 4K output: although it’s upscaled rather than native, right now this is the best you’ll get from a console.”
