Minecraft themed Xbox One S bundle and controllers announced

August 21, 2017

The Xbox One X wasn’t the only console to receive attention during Microsoft’s Gamescom 2017 conference. The company also took some time to announce a new limited edition Minecraft themed Xbox One S bundle and controllers will be coming to stores on 3rd October, 2017.

The console bundle includes a 1TB Xbox One S console featuring green and brown coloured squares (otherwise known as Grass and Dirt blocks in Minecraft) and a special red stone pattern on the bottom/side of the system. Also included is a special Creeper-themed controller, complete with a TNT logo on the battery cover, and a full game download of Minecraft complete with unique skins, texture packs, sounds and more.

Existing Xbox One owners need not feel left out, as the Creeper controller and a Minecraft Pig controller will be available to purchase separately.

Pre-orders have gone live at various retails, with the console bundle having a suggested retail price of AU$499.95 and the controllers costing AU$99.95 each.
