Xbox One S Minecraft Limited Edition

Never mind the Xbox One X, the Xbox One S Minecraft Limited Edition is the one we want.

Last night’s excruciating ‘Xbox @ gamescom’ livestream covered a lot of ground, with 90 minutes of news and footage showing off upcoming games like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Jurassic World EvolutionReCore Definitive Edition, and Middle-Earth: Shadow of War.

There was just as much focus on hardware, with the Xbox One X getting a Project Scorpio limited edition, and the news that the Xbox Design Lab is expanding to 20 new countries.

For us, however, there was one true star of the show: the Xbox One S Minecraft Limited Edition.

I mean, just look at it.

Here at Thumbsticks we usually like our consoles to fade into the background and hide in the shadows of our media centre, but this beauty? I want to display it on the mantelpiece. (Which is currently chock-a-block with amiibos, admittedly.)

The design of the Xbox One S Minecraft Limited Edition is based on a combination of dirt, grass, and redstone Minecraft textures. It comes with a 1TB hard-drive, features unique Minecraft system sounds, and is bundled with a green creeper-themed controller.

The bundle – which is priced at $399 – hits stores on October 3, 2017, and is available to pre-order from Microsoft now.

Xbox One S Minecraft Limited Edition bundle contents

  • Limited Edition 1TB Console
  • Limited Edition Creeper Xbox Wireless Controller
  • Minecraft digital code
  • Minecraft Redstone Pack bonus content digital code
  • Xbox One S Vertical Stand
  • 1-month Xbox Game Pass trial
  • 14-day Xbox Live Gold trial

The creeper green controller will also be available separately, and is joined by a pink, pig-themed edition. Again, top marks to the design team.

Both controllers will be available to buy from September 12, 2017.


Stay up-to-date with the latest Xbox, Nintendo, and PlayStation game releases.
