On Aug. 2, Microsoft will release the first update to its popular Xbox One console. The Xbox One S, announced last month at E3, will be released in just a few weeks, on Aug. 2.

The One S features a 40 percent slimmer design, 4K Ultra HD with high definition resolution (HDR) capability, and a slightly redesigned controller.

When the One S was first announced, Microsoft touted a $299 price tag to highlight its affordability. However, per the company’s announcement today, the most expensive version, priced at $399 and equipped with two terabytes of memory, will release first.

The two cheaper versions of the Xbox One S, the one-TB system for $349 and the smaller, 500-GB system for $299, will be released at a later date. The redesigned controller can also be purchased separately for $59.99 and is compatible with both the One S and the original One.

Next holiday season, Microsoft is set to release the codenamed “Project Scorpio,” an Xbox One touting enhanced 4K HDR resolution, as well as VR headset support.
