Last month Microsoft announced fans would be able to apply their own style to the Xbox One’s new wireless controller, creating a custom design to have shipped to their door. Mine just arrived, and it’s even prettier in person.

The sleek-looking Xbox One S starts shipping next week, but if you want one, you may want to hold off. More options will be available later thanks to a new set of bundles Microsoft announced today.

While we’d previously known that the slimmer version of the Microsoft Xbox One S was coming out in August, we didn’t have a precise date. Today, however, the Microsoft Store has one.


Microsoft Polls PC Gamers, Calls Civilization An RTS

Microsoft has been making a renewed push to impress PC gamers for a while. There hasn’t been a flood of gamers rushing to the Windows 10 Store in lieu of Steam just yet, and some developers are still cranky about how the Universal Windows Platform has played out so far.

Why Everyone Should Rewatch E3 Several Times

The funny thing about E3 is how it’s all about That First Reaction. The curtains rise. The lights dim. The speakers begin to boom. Or in Sony’s case, the orchestra.
