"#Minecraft" is a three-dimensional sandbox game developed and published by Mojang. "Minecraft" encourages players to experiment, explore and build almost anything out of textured cubes, the game has been praised for its creative and building aspects and has since then gained a large fan base. The game has been run on multiple video game platforms including the Xbox gaming consoles.

During the Xbox Gamescom press conference in Cologne, Germany, Microsoft unveiled the Minecraft #Limited Edition Xbox One S Bundle. The game console had a fine pixelated paint job reminiscent of the game's 8-bit theme, just enough to get any "Minecraft" fan to go "shut up and take my money" over this fine piece of hardware.
