In other words, if you have a new, cutting-edge TV, this is the Xbox for you. Actually, it's probably the Xbox for you, regardless. Unlike the original Xbox One, the Xbox One S is all killer, no filler. (Still, if you don't like the Xbox One at all, for whatever reason, this probably won't change your mind.)
The good news is that if anything can help close that gap a little bit, it's the Xbox One S. Here's why.
This handsome little devil is the $399 Xbox One S, with 2 terabytes of hard drive space. It'll play all the Xbox One games you might already own, but the differences between the original console and this newer, sleeker model are like night and day.
Which might explain why they went with white, versus the original 2013's console's black finish. That's the Xbox One S on top of the original, and as you can see, it's a lot smaller.
Microsoft claims it's 40% smaller. I didn't do any complex geometry to prove it, but it seems about right. Looks how much smaller and slimmer it is.
