Microsoft has been throwing in offers every other month and this time, the company has announced some wonderful deals for the Xbox One S console. The Xbox One X should have been capable of supporting QHD from the moment it launched, while it's unclear whether Microsoft plans to upscale games to 1440p on the Xbox One S. Of course, the downside is that they have to contend with bugs and unstable implementations, but who doesn't want to try out new feature before anyone else?

The news follows a tweet from the program's head Brad Rossetti, who hinted that new pre-release builds might be rolled out sometime this week.
