Those rumors of Microsoft launching a smaller, more powerful Xbox One at E3? They’re apparently quite real. NeoGAF members have posted multipleimages of what they say is the Xbox One S, and the leak points to a huge overhaul for the console.

The power brick is internal, too.
Nintendo’s home console the Wii U will cease production, according to Japanese paper Nikkei (by way of VentureBeat). The successor to the Wii has seen great titles like Mario Kart 8, Super Smash Bros 4 and level-creator Super Mario Maker, but not much success. But with Nintendo abandoning their flagship home console product in 2016, it’s almost safe to assume the company will bring their upcoming “NX” home console to market to replace it.
