    Good if you dont have an Xbox and a 4k tv

    I personally waited until the time was right this past Christmas to get this, while its a very good value (2tb, ultimate edition of GoW4 and a cool themed system) I really had to wait until there was enough games for me to warrant buying. You see I already own a ps4 and by now its pretty common knowledge that the lion's share of third party games run better on ps4, however it is worth noting that a few do run better on Xbox one. That being said the reason to own this system is somewhat in my opinion, misplaced. The one s has a UHD Blu-ray drive which is awesome....IF you have a 4k TV. This isn't the PS Pro, it doesn't play games at 2k, 4k, its still a Xbox one, meaning the majority of games run at 900p unless unscaled to 1080 it does however feature HDR, but so does a standard PS4. Most gamers don't have UHD media to play and a lot don't have 4k TV even more with HDR so all in all the one s is not going to do you much good unless you fall into the following categories: You don't have an Xbox one, You have a 4k TV with HDR, the price and bonuses are too good to pass up. I have a GoW 3 limited edition Xbox 360 and that too was an amazing value for your money plus I like GoW and have a Samsung JS8500, so this was a no brainer. I DO recommend this system to people but I also want to express that if you don't have the equipment for it you wont get the most out of it. One a side note, get the biggest HDD you can fine/afford one this I notice right off is how LONG it takes to load games in this system and while I'll admit I haven't messed it in length, I don't see how you can delete the game storage while keeping your save file date, on PlayStation those are two different things that can be checked individually, also disc loading is fast and painless on PS4 making deleting game data to make room for a new game on the ps4 much less of a decision because of how quick everything is I personally think that xbox one takes longer than the 360 did to disc load games, you can play while it loads but as you would expect its not optimal and you might actually get farther than whats been loaded so you'll have to wait anyway. The UI could use some love too, but now I'm nit picking, if you're like me and played excusively on the playstation the move to Xbox will be a bit rough, but thats how it goes, different consoles, different UI, different views on how to do things. 4 out of 5 stars Thank you for reading

    Great looking, sounds are less great

    This console is beautiful. The etchings in it make it the most unique Xbox I've ever seen. I have it hooked up to a Samsung JU7100 and the 4k picture is beautiful. I haven't played/watching anything in HDR yet, so I can't comment on that, but I'm looking forward to it (for anyone wondering, the JU7100 seems to be HDR capable. All display options on the Xbox have green check marks and Netflix shows appear with the HDR logo. Just make sure you enable UHD colors for whichever HDMI port you have it plugged into. I also recommend using 10-bit colors instead of 8-bit, which is the default). It's also a bit quicker, which is very nice. My only real complaint is the custom sounds. The startup and shutdown sounds are a bit long and corny to me (they're like, horns). If it were a short lancer chainsaw revving or something I think that would have been cool, but right now I'm missing the regular chimes. Oh well. Another con (but less bothersome) is the length of the power cord. It's awesome not having the power brick, but the cord is much shorter than the regular Xbox One, so I'm going to have to get an extension cord. And just a note to anyone with a kinect, Microsoft pulled an Apple. You're going to have to buy a $40 adapter to plug in into the Xbox One S.

    Great Deal

    Being an avid gamer I am always looking for a great deal or something special to add to my collection. I normally am not a fan of special edition consoles, nothing beats classic black in my opinion, but this is something special. The custom red paint job on both the system and the controller is very sleek and makes it stand out from my other systems. I was very surprised that the details on the system and controller, the claw marks and other unique designs, were not just a paint job but actually carved into the devices. The custom sounds also included with the system also add a very nice unique touch to the system. As far as performance there is a noticeable difference between the standard xbox one and the s model. I have not yet tried the 4k capabilities of the system, I am currently looking into getting a 4k tv, but am looking forward to seeing what the system can do. One of the biggest draws of this system to me was the 2 TB hard drive included in the system. Most gamers realize that with today's games that hard drive space is at a premium since the average game install file runs about 40gb or more. The 2 TB eases the pain of this though I will say I still connected a 2 TB external drive for extra memory, at the time of this writing I on ly have 1 TB of free space available so will either have to clear out older games that are not being played or look into purchasing another 2 TB external. Over all I highly recommend this system to any gamer, especially those looking to add something unique to their collection. The included gears of war 4 special edition is an added bonus.

    Great Price, still an xbox

    First off this is a huge upgrade from the original xbox one. It is extremely tiny and a lot closer to the original launch PS4. The internal HDD is not removable so a 2tb Is great, it has plenty of space for the rest of the average gamers life on this system. Extreme gamers should not worry either as an external HDD can be connected through USB. It looks amazing the controller is amazing also with physical damage to both the console and the controller, I get a lot of wows when people see these. after using it for a while now, it still really has noticeable lag when switch between apps and navigating the menus (something that can be fixed through updates. Also it runs very loud well watching youtube I can hear the fan running on the back ground, not a huge deal but still noticeable. also the controller is still very xbox, how ever no rechargeable battery (its time Microsoft) it has a noticeable low lever sound coming from it that is kinda weird but Finally upgraded with a new bluetooth wireless signal (Still works with old xbox one) over all this is hands down the best version of xbox one s to get as of now if you have not so yet, Includes everything you need of gears of war 4 with bonus content, all the previous games also.

    XBOX awesomeness

    I love the xbox. I really do. We got this because it is the GOW addition like our old one so it comes with a larger hard drive then the standard one does. Although they do have a 2tb one that is not GOW now. Things I would change, I would add a second controller standard, ( i did get a second controller free with this but that is because I shopped around) would also add headphones standard as it does not come with one of those either. having to buy an adapter for the kinect is complete garbage. You can get one for free "if" you had an xbox one that is not an s. why change adapters? that is just dumb xbox, come on get with it Microsoft. I do like the set up although it changed from the 360 and takes a little to get used too. I also think that xbox live gold should come free for say 10% of what the purchase price was in weeks. it includes regular xbox live but you do get more with gold. One last thing I love is that you can hook an external hard drive into this to use for storage. It is an upgrade that they really did not have before but with the huge size of 4k games it is needed. One game can be more than 75gigs of space. I should not need it for a bit but it is nice to know. 4k blueray is nice too. Overall a good product.

    Already had a 500 GB launch xbox one. Project Scorpio is a year away and 450.00 is alot if money to spend now when theres no telling what Scorpio will cost or how much my One S will be worth when Scorpio drops. That said... I love this xbox! Looks absolutely gorgeous. New controller feels good and has more range. The console is so small its almost cute... and no power brick! It runs silent but so did my original. I have sling TV, Netflix, and a OTA antenna (with Hauppauge tv tuner) and Im using a Samsung KS8000 SUHD TV. The 4K upscaling of regular HD content is amazing and the 4k content from netflix is supurb. Not to mention how great all my old xbox games look now but it could be the TV as it is new as well. The HDR video/gaming on netflix and Gears Of War is also stunning. Its unreal how clear, colorful, and detailed everything is. I don't even use the 4k Blue Ray player everyones raving about lol. I do hear not many (high end) audio formats are currently supported but I'm sure that will change. If you got the extra cash and a HDR capable UHD TV then its worth upgrading, especially if you want the 4k Blue ray player. If not, wait for Scorpio.

    This is the ULTIMATE Console for Gears Fans!

    I've been a DIE HARD gears fan since day 1. I've waited a very long time to get a New Xbox One Gears console and I'm super glad they did it on the Xbox One Slim instead of the original edition. FIrst off it comes w/ 2TB of Storage. Definitely no need to lug an extra small external hard drive around. First of all this bundle is a helluva bargain. You get the Themed console + Themed controller. You also get the Gears Ultimate digital bundle which includes the season pass. Buying this as a bundle saved you a bit of $$. Another thing I love is it has its specialized startup/shutdown sounds. One unique thing is it has laser etched markings on the console which I've never seen before on consoles or controllers. Also unlike typical special edition releases the insides of the box is very themed with Gears stuff which I thought was very excellent. It was'nt just a console thrown into a box with a special paper overlay. This box is done custom from the inside-out. I was amazed at how smaller this console was and it did not have an external power brick. Quite the space and power saver. If you are a Gears fan this is the ultimate bundle you really don't need to look any further beyond this bundle.

    Great features and size for the price

    Lets start with the hardware. I love the fact that its so much smaller than my original Day One Xbox One. The power supply has been integrated so I don't have to worry leaving space to store that giant brick any more. I find that it runs much cooler even. The case is well done and fits with the motif. The claw mark are actually laser etched into the case and, it had the cog symbol on top of the unit to add to the theme. The controller continues with vibe by following the same color scheme. In addition, it includes a 4K capable HDMI cable so you don't have to incur that cost. Let's talk about the other features. Its nice to have a 4K disc player. Most 4K players run 200-330+. For that kind of money it makes more sense to buy this system. You can run a plethora of other apps natively [like Netflix, Amazon Prime, web browsing, HBO Go, and much more. You also get the latest Gear of War and a number of add ons alone with the season pass. The game and season pass alone would add an extra $100 to your purchase costs if done separately. Overall, this is a great system which stands apart from the XB1S's out there. I would recommend this unit to everyone.

    Amazing Gaming Tech With an Added Custom Flare

    I currently own an Xbox One Day One Edition as well as the Launch Edition for PS4. Both work great and I've never had an issue, that being said I was on the fence about getting the Xbox One S. When I saw they were making a Gears of War edition of the console it intrigued me a little more but when they decided to give you the Ultimate Edition of the game with the console it was a no brainer for me because that edition retails alone for $99.99. Now the console is essentially a piece of art with laser etched claw marks on the console as well as the controller custom eject and power on and off sounds. The console is also significantly faster than the original Xbox One and the PS4 it also upscales your current games up to 4K. another great value in this system is that it is the best 4K Bluray player in the market and being that the base model starts off at $299.99 for the 500GB version its the only option that really makes sense. If you like gaming this console is amazing as well as all of the Microsoft Exclusives including the one bundled with this console Gears of War 4.

    I brought this console for a few reasons and here they are: A) Xbox Slim = Smaller and does NOT have an external power brick like its predecessor. B) Does all the 4k streaming stuff including game/Blu-ray Support C) This is Gears of War themed console which if you are a gears fan is a mega must D) Includes a gear themed controller E) Includes a DIGITAL copy of the Ultimate edition which includes the season pass. F) 2Tb of internal memory. Granted its still easy to hook up an external Hard drive but if you travel w/ your console you dont need this because this is ALOT of room for the console. You are saving some good $$ by buying this specific bundle. I still prefer digital games but the content is still the same. I was very impressed at how smaller this console was compared to the 1st release and how it uses just a plain power cord to plug into the wall.

    Previous Xbox was a 500GB which ran out of storage space even though I had an external 1TB drive connected. The 2TB HD in this Gears edition, plus the ability to play 4K bluray dics was a good enough reason to upgrade. The 4k discs play great (even though the discs are pricey). You'll need to do a lot of tweeking on the Xbox and 4K Tv settings to get everything to look its best. Cons: 1. No headset included. 2. A $40 adapter to use a Kinect2 on a Slim is over priced. 3. It takes a long time to copy the old games and apps from the old Xbone to an external drive, then copy everything back to the new Slim. Note: An old Xbone formatted external HD will be recognized by the new Slim (Don't believe rumors saying it can't be read). 4. Don't put the Slim in power saving mode if you have an external HD connected. The drive will "go away" and not be seen sometimes unless the Slim is restarted. Disable the Power Save mode (which is also know as Instant Startup). Pros: Great picture, 4K movies are clear and bright, plenty of space for games (at least for a short time), HDMI cable included, and Gears.

    This Gears of War collectors edition of the new Xbox One S is not only great looking and very unique, but it is the best dollar for dollar deal for the S (assuming you enjoy GoW). It comes with GoW4 Ultimate, plus Microsoft just texted me free codes for GoW, GoW2, GoW3, and GoW Judgement (all remastered 360 games). The deal for the remastered 360 games was supposed to be just for those that bought the GoW Xbox from the Microsoft Store, so that was a very welcomed surprise. I also got the free Kinect Adapter/Extender, so I could use my original Xbox's Kinect with the new GoW Xbox S. Those 5 free GoW games, the free adapter, plus all the Best Buy Reward Points pretty much covered the cost of my new Xbox S. The GoW controller looks great too. If you love GoW, you shouldn't pass up this deal (of course, I can't guarantee Microsoft will send you the four free GoW 360 game codes too, but I assume enough people must have complained to Microsoft when buying from other vendors like Best Buy).

    I am a tech/gadget freak at heart, and do a bit of gaming on the side. Which is why when I look at a console/tech purchase, I always look at it from more than one view/dimension. Case in point, when I bought an Xbox One before (1TB Advanced Warfare Edition) I was happy with it...until I somehow bricked my controller during updating it. After buying a second controller and days of researching to bring my dead controller back from the grave I was pretty peeved. Aside from other little quirks I had with it, that really was the last straw for me. I returned it and after time passed the Xbox One S came up. I figured I would give it another go, and this time I haven't been disappointed, especially with the upscaling, 2 TB capacity, and pairing it with my Sony 55 inch 4K TV I recently acquired has been an evolutionary experience.

    Best Console Bundle on the Market!!!!

    Posted
    Bobby

    Everyone who is a fan of gaming should buy the Gears of War 4 X Box One S Console. Yes its pricey but the benefits are worth every dollar. First off you get a beautiful designed X Box One s Console and Controller with the Gears of War 4 design on both. Second, you get the Ultimate Edition of Gears of War 4 downloadable only not a disc. Third, you get 14 days free of a X Box Gold Membership. Fourth, you get a 4K Blu Ray player built into the X Box One S that supports 4K Resolution and your Blu Rays will get upscaled to 4K which makes them twice as good in resolution. Most 4K Blu Ray Players are $500 $600.

    So I already have all the game machines. I didn't really need a new one. However, I was in the market for a 4K Blu-Ray player and another hard drive to add on to my existing Xbox One since I'd just about filled the disc. Well, this console has the 4K Blu-Ray, plus native 4K support, and twice the HD storage (2TB) of my previous console. The styling is cool and shows great attention to detail, and the custom sounds add uniqueness. Another plus: the bulky external power adapter is also gone to clean up the back of the rack, which was becoming a real mess. I'm also glad I can finally stand this one up vertically, as well, which was not supported on the older unit. Overall, it's a worthwhile evolution of a solid gaming platform. (Of course I'm still going to need another hard drive.)

    Good Console, Not worth the upgrade yet

    The Good: The Xbox One S is a slick looking game console that's 40 percent smaller than the original and ditches the infamously gigantic power brick. It can display 4K video from streaming services and Ultra HD Blu-rays, and supports HDR contrast on video and games. The updated controller works with other Bluetooth devices, too. The Bad: 4K, Ultra HD Blu-ray and HDR settings only work with newer TVs, and may require some trial and error. The updated controller feels cheaper than its predecessor. Project Scorpio, the more powerful Xbox One successor, arrives in late 2017. The Bottom Line: The Xbox One S is the console Microsoft should have delivered three years ago, but there's little reason to upgrade if you already own the original box.

    Great system. Not all 4K TVs will take advantage of what this system can do. Do your research and make sure yours is compatible if you care. Great picture and gameplay and apps work great as well. It's an XBOX. As for why people are buying it.....Gears. The game is fun and the Xbox and controller look sick. Love it. Will make an amazing addition to your collection. Great price all in all with the season pass and my Xbox even makes noises when you turn it on, off or open the disk tray. It's a bit cheesy, but cool. If you love Gears you'll not be disappointed. The game has flaws, but they will work on them. The maps look great and the game is fun as are all gears games.

    I've owned every Playstation and Nintendo since conception but this is the first XBox in our home. Bought this for my son's birthday and he's loving it. All his friends are Gears of War fans so this was a home run. The look of it is amazing and I don't know how he'd survive without the 2TB. With 16 games installed, he's only used about 20%. The feel of the XBox One controller is very comfortable and the etching is a great touch. It's compact and looks great in our entertainment center but the best part is the price. At the time of this purchase, the GoW4 Ultimate Edition is just about $100 alone so this system is the typical price but with an awesome design.

    Just got this installed yesterday and love it. It is easily to coolest looking console I have ever seen, the colors really pop and the scratches and other aesthetic aspects are an awesome touch(same goes with the included controller). Way smaller than the originaly Xbox. Everything looks infinitely better running on 4K (if you have a capable tv). The HDR support on Gears of War makes it even more beautiful. The fact that it has a 4K blu ray player, when a standalone player can cost up to $300, makes in an excellent value. That plus getting the Ultimate Edition of Gears makes it an incredible value. It's like buying those two things and getting a console for free.
