Blocky looks, square edges, simple colours – and that’s just the Xbox One S.
Microsoft’s diminutive console offers some small but appreciable improvements over the original console. It’s smaller, quieter, runs cooler, and best of all, it conglomerates that enormous power brick inside the shell of the unit. All in all, as a mid-term slim console, it’s a bit of a winner.
If you haven’t yet been out and bought your dinky Xbox One, and you really like Minecraft, then the Xbox One S Minecraft Favourites bundle – which positively rolls off the tongue – might be the console you’re looking for.
On the crafting table in the Xbox One S Minecraft Favourites bundle are:
- Xbox One S console (500 GB) with built-in 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player.
- New Xbox One S wireless controller.
- Minecraft: Xbox One Edition download code.
- Minecraft: Xbox One Edition Favorites Pack download code, which features the Festive Mash-up Pack, Halo Mash-up, Fantasy Texture Pack, Natural Texture Pack, City Texture Pack, Battle & Beasts Skin Pack and Battle & Beasts 2 Skin Pack.
- Minecraft: Xbox One Edition Builder’s Pack download code, which includes Biome Settlers Skin Pack, Cartoon Texture Pack, Candy Texture Pack, Plastic Texture Pack, Pattern Texture Pack and the Greek Mythology Mash-up.
- Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta download code.
- 14 day Xbox Live Gold trial membership.
That not enough for you? The Xbox One edition of Minecraft is also vastly improved over its Xbox 360 forebear, boasting improved performance and allowing for game worlds 16 times bigger than its older brother.
If that’s tickled your fancy, then you can get your blocky little mitts on an Xbox One S Minecraft Favourites bundle on October 11, 2016 in the UK, Europe and US. Our Antipodean cousins will have to wait until November 1, 2016 in Australia and New Zealand, while South American and Asian releases are yet to be confirmed.
