    The Xbox One S is a significant refinement to Microsoft's gaming and media ambitions. While gamers won't find much new, those who love to watch movies are in for a treat.
    Back in 2013, Microsoft announced the Xbox One. Billed as an 'all in one' media and gaming console the $499 successor the Xbox 360 already started on the wrong foot by deprioritizing gamers. Combined with that higher price point and Microsoft had a small disaster in the face of Sony's cheaper PlayStation 4.
    Since then Microsoft has done a fantastic job in righting their wrongs. They are now prioritizing gaming and they decoupled the Kinect as a requirement. In 2016, you can now buy a 500GB Xbox for just $249.
    Starting on August 2, Microsoft continues this strategy with the Xbox One S. While it is not a next-gen console , he One S is an evolution of the Xbox One product line that gets a lot right. Ironically, the new iteration does little for the core gamer demographic, but for those looking to start a 4K theater, the One S is tempting.
