Microsoft has released the Xbox One S Gears of War 4 limited edition console, and I think it's the most impressive game console release to date from a design perspective. I give you a look at the custom red Xbox One S with Gears of War 4 design elements in this episode. As you can see, aside from the battle worn look, you have the deep laser etching for the claw marks on both the Xbox One S console itself, as well as the included Gears of War 4 controller. Microsoft did a fantastic job!

The new Xbox One S is Microsoft's redesigned game console that brings 4K Blu-ray, 4K streaming, HDR gaming, and more to the Xbox One platform.
Microsoft announced the #XboxOneS back at E3 this past June, just three years after the release of the original Xbox One. It’s a revised version of the original Xbox One hardware that features a streamlined form factor. The S stands for Slim, and the Xbox One S is 40% smaller than its predecessor, and that’s even when including the power supply inside the Xbox One S, rather than requiring the large, bulky external power supply that the Xbox One needs in order to function. It also now supports HDR gaming, 4K HDR streaming, 4K HDR Blu-ray, and 4K upscaling of games.
You can pick up the Xbox One S now.
Microsoft has launched the Xbox One S, a newly updated version of the classic Xbox One that it released back in November of 2013. In this episode, I highlight all of the key differences between the first Xbox One and the new Xbox One Slim, giving you a look at what's changed and if those changes are worth your attention. I'll cover:
- The Hardware Changes
- 4K Blu-ray Support
- 4K Video Streaming
- 4K Game Upscaling
- HDR Support

I haven't been liking how slow Fallout 4 is on the Xbox One due to massive loading times, and figured I would do something about it. Rather than running Fallout 4 from the internal 5400RPM Xbox One hard drive, or even my external 7200RPM drive, I decided it was time to hook up a solid state SSD to my Xbox One in order to take advantage of the much faster speeds that the technology has to offer.
The problem with SSDs? External SSD drives are expensive. So instead, I made my own. In this video I show you how to make your own external SSD, and in the process, vastly speed up your Xbox One loading times!

We've come to the end of another year, and as we wave goodbye to 2013, we figured it was only fitting that we share the most popular stories published on Gear Live this year, as determined by our readers (we've also got the top ten most read stories regardless of publish date, as well as the ten most popular Gear Live videos of 2013!) These are the ten stories that were read the most, and when you consider that fact, it's pretty surprising to see what made the list. Let's kick it off with our most read story of the year:
Star Wars Battlefront PS4 Limited Edition console unboxing! This isn't our typical unboxing where I explain the product in detail, unfortunately, as we had a mishap early on in the video that I needed to take care of, as you'll see. Still, Darth Vader shines here in all his glory, emblazoned across the box of the limited edition Playstation 4, as well as right on the PS4 console itself. The bundle also includes a custom Star Wars PS4 controller which you won't find anywhere else, as well as a hard copy of Star Wars: Battlefront.
- Star Wars Battlefront Deluxe
- Star Wars Battlefront Standard
- Star Wars Battlefront standard bundle
- Star Wars X-Wing Pilot Headset
- Darth Vader Headset

I recently brought you my Seagate Game Drive for Xbox review, a 2TB external hard drive that is specifically designed for the Microsoft Xbox One and Xbox 360 in a joint collaboration between Xbox and Seagate. In this episode, I show you how easy it is to set up, get formatted, and get up and running on the Xbox One (the process is similar for Xbox 360 if you want to use it for that console instead!)

I give you a look at the HUGE Halo 5: Guardians Limited Collector's Edition for Xbox One in this episode! The star of this show is the gigantic Master Chief & Spartan Locke statue.
You also get a full Halo 5: Guardians game download, Warzone REQ bundle that includes 14 premium requisition packs, access to Halo: The Fall of Reach animated series, a Guardian model that you build yourself from Metal Earth, Spartan Locke's classified orders, dossiers on Blue Team and Fireteam Osiris, the Spartan SteelBook, and a two week Xbox Live Gold trial.
Seriously. All of that is part of the Limited Collector's Edition for Halo 5. The price comes out to $249.99 for all of it, but is a $189 premium over the standard Halo 5 disc. Is it worth it? The statue is definitely cool, but it's a lot of pay unless you're a hardcore Halo fan.
You can order the Halo 5 Limited Collector's Edition now.
The Forza Motorsport 6 Xbox One Limited Edition Bundle features an Xbox One console with a custom blue paint job, complete with two racing stripes and Forza Motorsport logo. The controller included also features that same blue color and racing strip design, along with metallic trigger buttons.
The console also ups the ante with a 1TB internal hard drive, which is double what you'll find in the typical Xbox One console. Forza Motorsport 6 is included as a digital download, as is the Forza Motorsport 6 Ten Year Anniversary Car Pack, which features 10 specially tuned and liveried cars, like the 2009 Ferrari 458 Italia, 2014 Lamborghini Huracan, and 2013 McLaren P1.
The console is also programmed with custom engine sounds when turned on, off, and when a disc is ejected. In the box you'll also find the Xbox One chat headset, power supply, and HDMI cable.
