Microsoft’s recently released Xbox One S is out in the wild and we have come across a few tests showing how it fares against games running on standard Xbox One console.

The games put to tests – compiled in the video footage attached above – include The Witcher III, Dark Souls III, Final Fantasy XV demo, and Just Cause 3.

Interestingly, the performance difference is some of the games mentioned earlier is so negligible – 1-2 frames per second difference – that it does not alter the overall gameplay experience.

But then again, we have to remember that Microsoft did not promise any of it. The upcoming Project Scorpio is the real thing when it comes to performance improvement.

It, however, would have benefitted Microsoft to overclock the CPU in Xbox One S. Due to this, there is no difference in CPU intensive games or sections i.e. bogs in The Witcher III: Wild Hunt.
