Microsoft has announced the release date for the Xbox One S console. This is the new slim version that is coloured white. 

Gamers in New Zealand can expect the console to arrive in stores shelves on August 2nd, 2016. This is for the 2GB version of the Xbox One S. No release date has been announced yet for the 500GB and 1TB iterations. 

The new console can be yours to own for a RRP of NZ$649. It is available now for pre-order at major retailers and the official Microsoft store. 

Apart from being slim and white, there are other benefits to this console. It is the cheapest 4K Ultra HD player on the market and it also upscale many Xbox One games to 4K.

Hands-on review: Logitech G502 HERO gaming mouse
My favourite feature of the G502s is the ‘Sniper’ button, which is found on the left hand side of the device. When held, this lowers the DPI and allows you to achieve maximum accuracy whilst honing in on a kill on your favourite FPS title.
