Differences Between Xbox One S and Other Xbox Models

There's a lot of excitement around the Xbox One X, and with good reason: it's the most powerful console ever made (to date). But the Xbox One S is no lightweight. All Xbox One games are compatible with every Xbox model—the launch console from November 13, Xbox One X, and the Xbox One S. Out of the hundreds of titles available, over 100 are exclusive to the Xbox platform. There are also hundreds of Xbox 360 games in Microsoft's growing list of backwards-compatible titles.

Additionally, the Xbox One S features a 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray player for players who desire the ultimate home-viewing experience. When you want to stream content, the S also offers 4K video streaming. Audiophiles will love the console's Premium Dolby Atmos and DTS:X capabilities.
