Microsoft unveiled its Fortnite- themed Xbox one S console on Monday, a purple console which comes with some extra Fortnite loot for players to use in -game.
What Is The Microsoft Purple Console?
The console is an Xbox One S and boasts a new gradient purple look and a purple controller to match, and it also comes with its own Legendary skin and other in-game cosmetic items. On top of all that, buyers will get some V-Bucks to spend however they want in Fortnite and a month of Xbox Live Gold, the latter being a peek that included in most Xbox bundles.
Fortnite players and Xbox collectors may recall that there were reports from March which suggested Microsoft was preparing to release a Fortnite console. We now know those reports were spot on as the console has been revealed to match up perfectly, with leaked images that revealed its bold purple colours. It’s officially called the Xbox One S Fortnite Battle Royale Special Edition Bundle.
The description of the bundle on Microsoft’s site reads:
“Own the Xbox One S Fortnite Battle Royale Special Edition Bundle and battle to be the last one standing. This bundle includes a gradient purple Xbox One S console, a purple Xbox Wireless Controller, a Legendary Outfit, an Epic Glider, a Rare Pickaxe (available in Fortnite Battle Royale and Fortnite Creative modes) and 2000 V-Bucks.”

What Is The Price Of The Fortnite Special Edition XBox One S Bundle?
The bundle is currently priced at $399, and it’ll first be available on June 7th. The official Xbox account on Twitter shared a closer look at the console as well as the cosmetics that come with the bundle.
But this isn’t one of Microsoft’s new discless consoles though, so if you’re a Fortnite player who’s still got plenty of games in their physical form, you’ll still be able to make use of this console. An Xbox One S All-Digital console that’s modeled after Fortnite’s themes certainly makes sense. Also considering how big the game’s become and that the whole point of that console is playing games digitally which is the only way to do battle in Fortnite.
