Right on the heels of the new PlayStation models, the Xbox One S will launch in Singapore on 13 December 2016 – just in time to stuff Christmas stockings.
The latest addition to the Xbox family of devices, the Xbox One S goes big on visuals with 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray playback, 4K video streaming, as well as High Dynamic Range (HDR) for games and video. With over 100 console exclusives lined up, Xbox 360 backward compatibility titles, the Xbox One S will definitely be a popular choice to add to your entertainment arsenal.
As the slimmest Xbox ever made, Xbox One S is 40 percent smaller than the original Xbox One. Featuring a sleek new design, a fresh “robot white” color and a built-in power supply, the Xbox One S also offers flexibility of placement to be displayed horizontally or vertically with an optional stand that retails separately.
The Xbox One S will also launch with two bundle sets. The Xbox One S Battlefield 1 Bundle (1TB), priced at S$499 comes with the base console, a full-game download of Battlefield 1 Standard Edition, one month of EA Access and a 1TB hard drive.
The Xbox One S Gears of War 4 Limited Edition Bundle (2TB), priced at S$629, will feature a battle-worn custom console with a 2TB hard drive, copy of Gears of War 4: Ultimate Edition for both Xbox One and Windows 10, and tons of extras.
“We are delighted to bring our newest addition to the Xbox One family of devices to Singapore, as we deliver on our vision to offer fans the best choices to enjoy the games they want to play, with the people they want to play with and on the devices they want.”
“The Xbox One S is an incredible device, packing in all that you need for a complete gaming and entertainment experience. With 4K Ultra HD content support, HDR support for video and gaming and an incredible line-up of games this year, including ReCore, Forza Horizon 3, Gears of War 4, Battlefield 1, FIFA 17 and Dead Rising 4, we know that fans will have a great time playing on the new console this holiday,” said Chris Goh, Senior Category Manager, Xbox and Windows Gaming, Microsoft Singapore.
