Xbox One vs Xbox One S

In a nutshell, the conclusions are as follows.

When it’s all said and done, the Xbox One S should be primarily viewed as a slimmed-down version of the Xbox One. The new version introduces a mildly updated controller and provisions for 4K display. However, it’s not going to warp you into a state-of-the-art gaming experience. Pragmatically, you’re probably better off nabbing an older Xbox One, which are now being sold at fire-sale prices. However, this is the advice for first time buyers. If you have an interest in bundled games and aren’t saving your pennies for 2017’s Project Scorpio, the Xbox One S is a good gaming and entertainment deal.

One exception is if they’re desperate to own an Ultra 4K HD blu-ray player. Also, if they really want that tiny boost in the power the Xbox One S provides is another exception.
