I’ve been an Xbox fan since the very beginning. I can’t quite believe that was some 15 years ago! Dylan and Xander, meanwhile, have developed more of an interest in gaming over the last year.
We were absolutely delighted, then, to be offered an Xbox One S Minecraft bundle for review. That is to say that I was delighted to be offered it. It was a complete surprise for the boys!
As they knew nothing about it, I decided to put together a video. Here is the big reveal and unboxing. I’ve also included our first impressions after a few Minecraft sessions.
I think it’s going to be a great console for everyone. There are plenty of games for all ages and we’re going to have a lot of fun playing them. Looking specifically at Minecraft, it promises to be both entertaining and educational. I think the boys will really benefit from playing it. I hope I get the odd go on it too.
With 4k streaming too – which offers four times the resolution of standard HD – content on Netflix is going to be even sharper. We’re all looking forward to further exploring the capabilities of the console.
If you’re planning on getting an Xbox One S as a Christmas gift, familiarise yourself with this video.
Although setting up an Xbox One S is nice and easy, it’s well worth a watch. It’s packed with handy tips for ensuring that your console is ready to play as soon as it’s unwrapped. You will definitely thank yourself for doing so! Setting up can take a little bit of time, so it’s well worth getting it ready in advance.
I’ll be back with a full review of the Xbox One S Minecraft bundle soon.
