Xbox One S: What Makes It The Number One Console In Australia?


Xbox One is the current best-selling game console in Australia. This was announced by Xbox Australia via press release.

The increasing demand for Xbox One S comes to no surprise as there have been lots of buzz about it since it was released last August. The new slender look and cool features seem to attract gamers in Australia.

The press release from Xbox Australia indicated that it is now the highest selling 4K Blu-ray player in the country.

As posted on, Microsoft Australia’s Xbox Lead Jeremy Hinton, said they would like to thank their fans for their continued support and passion for Xbox in Australia.

The Xbox One S includes exclusive games such as "Forza Horizon 3," "Gear of War 4," "Minecraft" and "FIFA 17."

The 4k Blu-ray compatibility of the Xbox S which is the cheapest in today’s market, have made these games extra cooler. Not to mention that even Sony’s PS4 Pro does not work on a 4k Blu-ray compatibility.

“It’s great to see such enthusiasm for the new Xbox One S & Forza Horizon 3, as well as the range of exclusive bundles including Gears of War 4, Battlefield 1, FIFA 17 and Minecraft – all of which are available now," he added.

With the upcoming launches of "Dead Rising 4" this December and "Halo Wars 2" in February 2017, there has never been a better time to be an Xbox gamer, Hinton added.

Cool Features, Storage, and Price

The Xbox One S features a “four times the resolution of standard HD, 4K Ultra HD delivers the clearest, most realistic video possible. “

It has more luminous colors and richer game view with a higher contrast ratio of light and dark color. This makes the HD experience unbelievable.
