Play the greatest games lineup on a smaller console. Just don't let its size fool you - with an internal power supply and ample internal storage, the Xbox One S is the excellent Xbox. *DLC (Downloadable Content) may not be included and is not guaranteed to work*

If you have the disc version already you can just insert it and it will download the Xbox One compatible version for you, although you'll still need the disc inserted to play it if you do it that way. Otherwise it'll just give you a generic error message. Not all games are compatible yet so it's important to check if each game is before you buy it.
Unlike previous Xbox One models the S has an internal power supply so you won't have an external "power brick" that you'll need to find space for. It can also play 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray discs, if you don't mind spending somewhere between £15 to £30 per film. I took one star off because it's only really worth it if you've never had an original Xbox and Xbox 360, and missed out on a lot of older Xbox exclusive games. The Xbox One has nothing going for it when it comes to newer games. Multiplatform games look better and run better on the PS4, and there are almost no Xbox One exclusives that would be of interest to solo players.
Very quiet too.
The only thing i find weird is they still give controllers with batteries, so make sure you buy a battery pack.
It's a smart looking console, it's quiet and performs well BUT WTF has Microsoft done to the interface/dashboard? It's got to be the worst user experience I've ever come across. As an IT professional I'm dipping in and out of Android, iOS all flavours of Windows and Linux on a daily basis and I've never seen anything as awful as this.
Nothing's going to beat the 1.0 Xbox 360 stacked sheets, the Metro Interface that finally dropped on the 360 was horrible but manageable, but holey moley MS have really dropped the ball on the XB1.
So the three stars go to the hardware, the Blu-Ray performance and the nice controller (which is taking some getting used to), but I gotta knock off 2 stars for the interface. What a disaster.
I bought this console as an update to my original edition of the Xbox One from 2014. That is still working fine. The issue is due to the power bank being built in, as opposed to being out on the floor like the old one.
Best to spend your money on a playstation?!
