It looks like Microsoft’s rumored Fortnite Xbox One is real and it isn’t just be a basic software bundle. Some purported leaked images and details of the system have emerged. If the info is true, the Xbox One S variant would come in a Gradient Purple shade with a matching gamepad. That certainly makes it stand out from the crowd of other limited edition consoles. It is a unique color that’s for sure.
Buyers would also get a ready-to-play copy of the Fortnite game itself with the console, a month of Xbox Live Gold, 2,000 V-Bucks and an exclusive Dark Vertex skin. The system itself would be a standard disc-based version of the Xbox One S with 1TB of storage with nothing new under the hood.
If this news is accurate, the Fortnite model is just a few days away from launch and would cost under €300 in Germany, and probably $299 in the US. That might be expensive for some gamers. Microsoft’s E3 presentation is right around the corner, and there’s a possibility it will talk about its next-generation Xbox ahead of a 2020 debut. So the One S could quickly feel like outdated tech, therefore this is more aimed at kids or collectors.
