Xbox One S Minecraft Edition

If the Xbox One X is a little out of your price range currently or you are waiting to see the world’s most powerful console out in the wild before purchasing, Microsoft has also just announced two new Xbox One S bundles for your consideration.

These two bundles offer fantastic value for money if you are considering getting a more wallet-friendly Xbox One or you would like a sleeker version of your original Xbox One which also offers a wealth of extra functionality and storage.

Xbox One S 1TB Console – Minecraft Limited Edition Bundle

This limited-edition Xbox One S bundle comes complete with a console boasting 1tb in storage, encased in a custom-designed glass box cover with flashing LED circuitry. It also comes with an iconic Creeper gamepad and, of course, a copy of the world’s biggest-selling game, Minecraft. The bundle will hit stores on October 3rd and has just gone on pre-order for $399.99.

This exquisite bundle is a must for any Minecraft fan and given how many there are of those, expect this extremely limited edition to sell out fast.

Preceding the release of the Minecraft Xbox One S 1tb bundle, Microsoft will also be making the Creeper gamepad available separately alongside a similarly themed Minecraft Pig gamepad in September.

Xbox One S 1TB Console – Middle Earth: Shadow of War Bundle

This exclusive Xbone One S 1tb bundle comes with the hotly-anticipated Lord of the Rings game, Middle Earth: Shadow of War. The previous title in the series, Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, took everyone by surprise back in 2014 by not only being a faithful interpretation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s works but by being a fantastic action game in its own right.

The upcoming sequel looks set to carry on the fine work of Monolith Productions as Middle Earth once again goes to war.

The bundle also gives you access to several pre-order bonuses for Shadow of War, such as four Legendary Champions and the Epic Sword of Dominion.

The Middle Earth: Shadow of War bundle will be available to buy on October 10th for $349.99 but you can pre-order it at the Microsoft Store by clicking on the title above.

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
