Microsoft releasing limited-edition Xbox One S 'Minecraft' bundle

Are you going to be pre-ordering the limited Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition? Microsoft also announced two new Xbox One S bundles tied to the game Middle Earth: Shadow of War.

PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS is now available on Steam Early Access and is launching exclusively on Xbox One as part of the Xbox Game Preview program in late 2017, with the final version launching in early 2018 across the Xbox One family of devices.

The only major difference is that you can see the words "Project Scorpio" engraved on the console and the controller itself.

Preorders are officially open effective immediately from the following outlets. Surface-phone.it reports that Microsoft briefly posted a video promoting a new Xbox One S Minecraft Limited Edition console on the official Minecraft Facebook page, removing it after 30 minutes.

Here are some of the retailers where you might still be able to find an Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition (which has already begun to sell out on some sites): Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, Walmart, Target and Microsoft. However, a limited number of Xbox One X Project Scorpio consoles will be produced.

But despite the jump in power over the Xbox One S, the new console is actually smaller. It's throwing a live event to launch the 4K remaster of the classic game being developed for Windows 10.

Meanwhile, Microsoft just revealed at GamesCom that Crackdown 3 will be delayed to spring next year. The console comes with a vertical stand in the box.

"This led to our decision on extending our partnership with Microsoft and I'm happy to announce it now includes Microsoft as the publisher for our PUBG on Xbox One". Also included is a full game download of Minecraft, unique Minecraft skins, sounds, textures, and much, much more!

The Xbox One X is built to directly compete with Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro, and it's ultimately more powerful at six teraflops of graphical power compare to the 4.2 teraflops on the Sony PS4 Pro.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of War isn't an Xbox One exclusive, but Microsoft was playing up the game on stage. It already includes a Minecraft Creeper controller, which can later be bought separately alongside a controller created to look like a Minecraft Pig.
