The Xbox One S might not get the same kind of recognition that its other 4K-wielding older sibling might, but the system is still a great addition to Microsoft's line of consoles, especially for new gamers. With that in mind, there's a new sale over on Amazon that makes this console a little more enticing, by knocking a huge chunk off of the price and bundling it with the game that turned into a cultural phenomenon: Minecraft.
The 500 gigabyte Xbox One X (with the game) is currently $239.95 on Amazon, down from its usual $299. Games are playable in 4K, and can be played on both the console and PC through Microsoft.
