Minecraft gets an Xbox One S bundle and themed controllers

21 August, 2017, 06:11 | Author: Cecelia Webb

The next version of Microsoft's long running Xbox line of video game consoles is named Xbox One X. It costs $US500, and launches November 7.

There's also a completely custom-designed Xbox One controller as well and custom system sounds whenever you turn the console on or off.

If you happen to have missed the whole show you can catch it by visiting Xbox's YouTube channel.

Other than these aesthetic changes, Microsoft isn't introducing any other alterations from the Xbox One X for the time being.




Additionally, the Project Scorpio branding is also present between the directional pad and the right analog stick on the controller that will ship with the limited edition Xbox One X console. That leaves the Xbox One X and Scorpio Edition without a major Xbox-exclusive game title out of the box on its release. The Project Scorpio Edition preorders will be available until supplies run out, so you'd better get in there as fast as you can. At $400, the system will set you back more than your standard Xbox One S bundle, but how can you put a price on art? The name name is distressingly close to Xbox One S when you say it out loud, so I suppose this is a happy medium. Microsoft will not stock pile a massive amount of the high-end Xbox. There is also a less limited Xbox One S Shadow of War bundle to celebrate the latest Middle-Earth game.

In the app, click on the "Notify Me button" on the Xbox One X listing, which is available right on the home screen.

Meanwhile, Microsoft just revealed at GamesCom that Crackdown 3 will be delayed to spring next year.

Shadow of War: The enemy isn't your only threat in Shadow of War. This support will be found in newer games, along with a selection of already released Xbox One games with free patches (a model similar to the PS4 Pro's improved performance with PlayStation 4 games).
