It leaked yesterday and now it's official: the Xbox One S, a slimmer, lower power, white Xbox One, is coming in August. Prices will start at $299.

Microsoft confirmed the information from a weekend leak at the company's E3 event today. The new Xbox supports 4K video output, including support for 4K Blu-ray discs, and high dynamic range (HDR) imagery.
