Xbox One S Minecraft Limited Edition Leaks Ahead of Gamescon

The Xbox One X will cost $499 in the USA, £449 in the United Kingdom, and you can now place your order in advance. This special edition of the console will have Minecraft blocks etched into the Xbox One S.

"Get Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition before it's gone forever", reads the marketing teaser-there'll be a standard $499 version at some point down the road, in other words.

Preorders are officially open effective immediately from the following outlets.

The bigger news is that the Xbox One X is now up for pre-order ahead of its November release. It's worth noting that this pricing is in line with the now offered 500GB and 1TB Xbox One S bundles, which normally cost $350 and $450, respectively. Both Xbox One X and Xbox One S are built to take advantage of 4K entertainment, too, and include an Ultra HD Blu-ray player, 4K video streaming and HDR for videos and gaming. They are $74.99 each, compatible with the Xbox One as well as Windows 10 PCs.

Finally, if you choose to pick up the new system, switching to it from your old Xbox One should be pretty straightforward. The console comes with a vertical stand in the box. A download for the full Minecraft game is also included.
