Microsoft took to the stage for its E3 2016 press conference with a host of explosive new looks and exciting new exclusives, as well as a few hardware surprises thrown in for good measure. Here’s what you may have missed.
Xbox One S
The Xbox One S presents a sleeker and smaller Xbox One model, importantly with a built-in power brick.

The newly streamlined Xbox Wireless Controller comes packaged with the console, with it set to hit store shelves in August with a starting price of $299US.
The next addition to the Xbox family. Confirmed.
