The Xbox One S has been released in Australia and UK. For those Aussies and Brits who are excited to get their hands on one, we have rounded up information about the console?s price and features.

According to the official press release from Microsoft, the 2TB Xbox One S launch edition is now available in the said territories via the Microsoft Store or your local retailer. Gamers are advised to get one as soon as they could since there are very limited stocks.

The console is said to be one of the top 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray players today, allowing users to watch movies or stream TV shows from partners such as Netflix.

The Xbox One S release also offers over 100 console exclusives. It has High Dynamic Range (HDR) support for video and gaming that brings out the true visual depth of Xbox One titles like Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3, Scalebound, NBA 2K17 and other popular games.

As for the Xbox One S price, the 2TB launch edition Xbox One S costs $549 AUD, with 1TB and 500GB Xbox One S options starting at $399 AUD. It will officially go on sale on August 23, but pre-orders are already available. More bundles will reportedly be released in the following months.

Gamers from all over the globe have been excited ever since the Xbox One S? arrival was confirmed during last June?s Electronic Entertainment Expo. Prior to being unveiled in Australia and UK, the Xbox One S was initially released in the US earlier this week.

However, there are cash-strapped gamers who are reluctant to make the new purchase due to its similarities with its predecessor, the Xbox One. Save for the HD capabilities and a couple of new features, such as Cortana, the two are very much alike in terms of both hardware and software.
