Microsoft has finally revealed that its new slimmer Xbox One version, named Xbox One S, will hit the stores on August 2, 2016. If you are a fan of Xbox, then you will most likely purchase the console once it will be released. However, if you are one of those people who don’t want to throw away their money, then you will not be tempted to purchase the Xbox One S, if you already own the Xbox One.
But, then again, is it worth purchasing the Xbox One S if you already own an Xbox One console?
The Xbox One S that will be released next month and it will come with an internal storage of 2TB, but it will be available in “select regions”. The console will be sold for $399, but soon after that, the same console will be launched in two storage variants of 1TB and 500GB.
The price is pretty decent, especially because this is a slim console, but let’s not forget that Microsoft has announced that it will released another Xbox console, codenamed Project Scorpio, which will be released in the fall of 2017, which will come with better specifications than the current Xbox One console. In other words, if you already own an Xbox One console, we suggest you to just be patient and wait 1 year for the Xbox “Project Scorpio”.
We’re not sure if Microsoft made a good move by releasing a slim version of Xbox One, especially when the sales of the current Xbox One are not going too well. The Xbox One price has been drastically decreased since its release date and it is now cheaper than the PlayStation 4. However, even if PlayStation 4 is more expensive, the console is sold very well.
If the Xbox “Project Scorpio” will come with way better specifications than the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, then there are high chances that it will be sold very well. In other words, until the fall of 2017, Microsoft will most likely not beat Sony’s PS4 sales.
