The Xbox One S console is, of course, noticeably more svelte than its predecessor – 40-percent so, in fact. The first thing you really notice about the device, however, is that bright white coat of paint, the starkest of contrasts from its much darker predecessors.
The company calls it “robot white.”
Balanced precariously up top is the new controller, which also sports a sleeker design (not 40-percent sleeker, but sleeker, nonetheless), along with redesigned, textured grips for a better feel.
Other notable architectural features include the IR blaster and shifted USB port, which are located just under the lip, up front.
