Microsoft has a new video game console that it hopes will win the hearts of gamers.

The new Xbox One S is essentially a smaller version of Microsoft’s Xbox One Console, Microsoft said on Monday in Los Angeles during the annual Electronic Entertainment Expo, or E3.

The device, which costs $300, will be available in August. Microsoft (MSFT) said it is 40% smaller than the Xbox One console and will support high resolution technologies like 4K video and high-dynamic-range imaging.

The Xbox One S will also have a new controller, Bluetooth support, and have a greater wireless range than current Xbox controllers.
