While we had previously heard that the new and slimmer model of the Xbox One would be launching on August 2nd, this was only for the most expensive model with the highest amount of storage. However, Xbox’s Major Nelson has now revealed when we can expect to grab the two other models, and it won’t be much longer depending on where you live.
Major Nelson revealed that the 500GB and 1TB versions of the Xbox One S will launch on August 23rd in North America, Canada and Australia, with information on its release in additional markets coming next month. The 500GB model costs $299 and is bundled with Halo 5: Guardians, whereas the 1TB model costs $349 and is bundled with Madden NFL 17.

Major Nelson ends by saying that they’re “continuing to offer our 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. Whether fans suit up as a Spartan or an NFL quarterback, we look forward to offering them the ultimate gaming and entertainment experiences on Xbox.”
In case you don’t know, the Xbox One S is 40% smaller than the standard Xbox One, and also sports a 4K blu-ray player and support for HDR.
