Minecraft Themed Xbox One S Console Announced

The Xbox One X isn't the only new hardware option coming from Microsoft this fall. Over 100 new and existing games are slated to be enhanced to take advantage of the full power of the Xbox One X.

"For the countless enthusiasts who've sent us their designs, posted their requests, or simply dreamt of a console built out of grass and dirt blocks, this one's for you". The Xbox One X Project Scorpio features green engravings on the console and controller. This limited edition console bears that name printed on the console itself as well as its controller. Many expected pre-orders to go live during E3 but due to FCC regulations, Xbox had to pass certification before they were allowed to put it up for sale.

Preorders are officially open effective immediately from the following outlets.

And if you just want a closer peek at the Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition, here's Microsoft unboxing one. Apart from this, there aren't many changes and internally, the Project Scorpio is the same as a regular Xbox One X. The system will be shipping with a vertical stand as well. One X is compatible with all Xbox One games and accessories, with room for graphical improvements when supported.

Could this mean India finally gets the Xbox One S on October 3? Either way, this is great news for Xbox One fas that have been waiting to jump in on the action of the massively popular shooter. As Microsoft previously revealed, the price is $499. The company's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb has posted a list of all the games now slated to get some kind of Xbox One X enhancement. You can check out the trailer released during the Xbox presentation at Gamescom 2017 below.

Xbox One will launch on November 7th, 2017.

Rather than fighting holiday crowds at your local retailer, you can pre-order the console starting today at all the usual places: Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, and more.
