Last Sunday, Microsoft began pre-orders for their new Xbox One X. They tech giant also unveiled a new special edition Xbox One S. The console and controller look as though they were both taken right out of Minecraft, literally. Here’s everything thing you need to know.
The new console is covered in Minecraft blocks that are etched into the side. The blocks are a mixture of green, brown, and gray on the console, and the controller is covered in green and black blocks. Overall the design team captured Minecraft at its finest. Unsurprisingly, Minecraft fans will love the new console. Personally, it is the most stunning special edition console that I have seen in a long time, and it will undoubtedly turn heads.
Prior to the special edition console, Microsoft only had a game bundle with Minecraft included. A full blown specially designed console and controller was not unexpected. For those that are interested in purchasing the console, it will be available on October 3, 2017, but pre-orders are already open. The console retails for $399.00 and will include the special edition console (with 1TB of storage), special edition controller, a vertical stand, a Redstone Ad-On for the full game, and a trial to Xbox Game Pass.
Minecraft and Xbox fans in general should get excited for the upcoming holiday season! With the Xbox One X and Special Edition Xbox One S consoles, it is going to be a great fall for gamers!
