When the Xbox One S was revealed last month, it seemed that we’d have to wait until much, much later this year to get our hands on the 500GB and 1TB models. Original release dates from Microsoft placed the 2TB model in August and the smaller models (500GB/1TB) in December. Luckily, it looks like Microsoft had some other ideas in mind. We just got a nice surprise from the Major himself – Major Nelson.
