Thinking of picking up a new console? Perhaps this Xbox One S deal could entice you.
Tesco is selling the Xbox One S 500GB Minecraft Console bundle for £209.99. But if you scroll to the bottom of the page and add Forza Horizon then enter the code TD-NHTX at checkout, you’ll bring the price down to a much more enticing £189.99. That’s a great price for the console plus two games.
The Xbox One S features a UHD Blu-ray player, 4K games upscaling, HDR 10 support, HDR gaming compatibility, HDMI 2.0 connection support, and 500GB of storage.
We gave the Xbox One S a 4/5 score in our review, praising the console’s small size, 4K game upscaling, UHD Blu-ray support, and HDR compatibility. Here’s out verdict:
“The Xbox One S is far better than the original Xbox One, with improvements on every front. It’s smaller, it’s prettier and it includes a greater number of features. Sure, the gaming element is almost unchanged, but HDR gaming compatibility means at least a degree of future-proofing. Then there’s the 4K output: although it’s upscaled, rather than native, right now this is the best you’ll get from a console.”
“But the real worth is the ability to play UHD Blu-rays. This is the most affordable 4K Blu-ray player on the market, and it’s a competent performer to boot. If you own a 4K TV and you want your movies and games looking their best, the Xbox One S is a no-brainer.”
The Xbox One S has a 4.8/5 score based on 334 user reviews. Users wrote:
“Small, compact and a dream to setup – a three-year-old could do this. Add in a Blu-ray player and you can’t ask for more.”
“Very well-designed and capable console. I would definitely recommend it.”
“The Xbox One S was set up in minutes and linked to Xbox gold a couple of minutes late. The controller looks and feels much better then the 360, and the console is small and sleek. Our son never bothers with his old 360 now, he is constantly on this Xbox One, and it has never had a problem.”
