Xbox One S Unveils Fortnite Themed Console

No Caption Provided

Check out the tweet from Xbox below, and admire that sweet shade of purple.

As some of you might recall, it was rumoured last month that a purple Xbox One S would be released, and now it has been confirmed, as Microsoft has officially announced a new bundle for the Xbox One S called the Fortnite Battle Royale Special Edition, priced at £249.99 ($299.99 United States dollars, €299.99). From June 7 to June 17, Microsoft is running a huge E3 2019 sale on Xbox One consoles, Xbox One games, and Xbox One controllers. This, along with the recent creation and acquisition of a bunch of studios to make exclusive games for the next generation makes it seem like Microsoft is really primed to get back into the game in a big way. We typically see Microsoft announce new bundles and deals at E3, and don't expect 2019 to be much different.

If the rumors are to be believed, the newest Xbox (possibly called Xbox 2, or whatever else Microsoft comes up with along the way) is more powerful than the new PlayStation, which we've already seen in loading time demos. Of course, this console will be available in other stores as well. The $249 Xbox One S All-Digital Edition that Microsoft launched last month will also be $50 off, along with other Xbox One S bundles. Beginning on June 7 you will find sales on accessories, console bundles, and hundreds of games.

Finally, Microsoft is knocking $10 off of its Xbox One controllers.

Rivals of Aether is next up on Xbox One, available between June 16 and July 15 and Earth Defence Force 2017 available between June 16 and June 30. Some of the best games of the past year are available for $US20.

If you buy something through this post, IGN may get a share of the sale.

Xbox One wireless controllers are $US10 off, and Xbox branded clothing and gear are 60% off as well.
