Xbox One S leaks: 40% slimmer console with 4K

Microsoft's next Xbox console has leaked ahead of the company's E3 2016 press conference, the Xbox One S, a smaller but more potent version of the current machine.

Microsoft: Sorry, PC gamers, no Halo 5 for you

As one of the Xbox One's biggest exclusives, Halo 5: Guardians has been available since October.
