Looks like the high 4k Blu Ray drive prices will be plummeting with Consoles thankfully adopting the new 4k Blu Ray drives
I couldn't find any solid evidence of this anywhere except more talk about it on other forums and old news.
Any new links to support this ?

It's not clear at all if the console has a 4K Blu-Ray player. The only thing they announced is 4K streaming support. Where did you see the actual hardware specs?

Edit: About half of the news websites are also reporting 4K UHD Blu-Ray support, so let's hope it's true. If it is, this is a game changer for the format.

Thanks for confirming! I'm still waiting for a Dolby Vision player but this is great news overall.

Outside of the new visual design, the Xbox One S also includes a few other improvements compared to its predecessor. Most notably, there’s 4K Ultra HD video support (including 4K Ultra HD Bluray) and HDR capabilities for both gaming and video. Meanwhile, one of the console’s USB ports has been moved to the front for easy access, along with the controller pairing button, and there’s a new built-in IR blaster. One thing has been removed, however: the Xbox One S doesn’t include a dedicated Kinect sensor port. If you want to hook up a Kinect for voice controls you’ll need a separate USB adaptor. (Microsoft says that there will be a program to offer the adaptors for free to existing Xbox One owners who decide to upgrade.)

The most important question though is will it feature two HDMI outs

one for video and another for audio like the Samsung UHD player?

If not then many people that don't have updated AVR equipment it will end up being useless for right?

Does it support Atmos or allow bitstream?.
YUP, there it is, it actually says it will play UHD Blu-rays.
It makes me think of something that's made out of white Lego bricks. :D


Promising, but not in stone. I'm still researching. I need to hear directly from MS. Reaching out to some on Twitter. We'll see if someone can confirm.

2TB Already up for pre-order though and I've got mine in. http://mjr.mn/1XkuDzs

I'm in that boat, maybe an HDMI splitter ???
I sure don't plan on blowing upwards of 1500.00$ on a ne AVR that's for sure.

If it's going to play blu-rays like the Xbox One did at launch, they can take the One S and shuff it up their own S.
I mean, they still haven't fully fixed the blu-ray playback on the current xbone. Just saying'.
