WELCOME Welcome to our

WELCOME Welcome to our special look at the Xbox One S. Yes a new Xbox One with the S on it sees a smaller, more modern looking console with more power on the graphics front, HDR gaming and of course that magical 4K video. The unit also comes with a new controller that supports Bluetooth and a textured grip so long sessions are easier on the hands. Gone are the days of “my consoles’ better then yours!” … no, today gamers are more like to own more then one gaming system, even if it’s a computer or mobile device. Gamers are simply that - gamers. It’s not just about the hardware, but the enjoyment of being immersed in a game. But a good system can greatly enhance your enjoyment of gaming and the Xbox One S has a bunch a great exclusives that you will enjoy, including games like Forza Horizon 3, reviewed as the most beautiful game on Xbox by The Guardian, with its high resolution graphics, HDR and speed, it’s an amazing experience. Gears of War 4 has gotten great reviews and if you’re on Metacritic you’ll see it’s scored extremely highly by sits like IGN. Of course there’s Halo 5: Guardians which upscales beautifully to 4K. We hope you enjoy our guide to the Xbox One S, and with Christmas just around the corner we can’t think of a better family gift that will keep the whole family having fun over the summer holidays!
