Microsoft's new Xbox One S hits stores Tuesday


Not into Pokémon Go? Don't worry. Microsoft hasn't forgotten about you. 

The newest model of the Xbox One, named the Xbox One S, hit stores August 2 in 25 countries. Microsoft announced the release date in July.

The new console will cost $399 with a two-terabyte hard drive, with cheaper models on the way later this year.

What's new in this model, besides the price cut? It can stream games in 4K and play 4K Blu-rays if you have a compatible TV. And it's smaller than the base Xbox One.
