Attention, gamers! If you’ve been waiting to upgrade to the Xbox One S, now might be the perfect time.
Currys has a cracking deal on Microsoft’s latest video gaming console, offering the Xbox One S with the Minecraft Favourites Collection and an Xbox Wireless Controller for just £199.99 – that’s a saving of £97.99 on the raw R.R.P.
The Xbox One S features a UHD Blu-ray player, support for HDR 10, 4K Ultra HD games upscaling, HDR gaming compatibility, a HDMI 2.0 connection, and 500GB of storage
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.”
The Xbox One S currently retails at £225 on Amazon, and has a 4.3/5 score based on 15 user reviews. Users wrote:
