Microsoft’s Purple Xbox One S Fortnite Console Leaks

Posted on May 25, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Games, Xbox One with 5 Comments

Slight Update: Evleaks replied to our story on Twitter with some high-res, non-watermarked renders of the new console. Enjoy.

Microsoft’s Fortnite Xbox One S console could be launching sometime soon. We first reported about the console back in January, and it seems like the console is now ready for launch.

WinFuture got their hands on the official renders for the console, and it’s no different from what we have seen before. The idea is that the console is inspired by Fortnite, so it features a full purple/dual-shade purple design, with a purple controller to go along with it. WinFuture reports that the console will come with a special Dark Vertex skin, and 2000 V-Bucks (the in-game currency on Fortnite).

And that’s really about it. Microsoft has done something really similar for Minecraft back in 2017, and it makes sense to do the same for Fortnite as it’s been incredibly popular over the last several months.

It’s not clear when Microsoft will launch the new Fortnite console, but considering E3 is coming up next month, that will probably the perfect time to launch the new console. Or Microsoft could just announce it through a blog post as well. We shall see.

    I wonder if there are people who purchase this and will store it as a collector item.

    Crazy how the have more console colors than actual games.

      Based on the fact that there are 218 Xbox One X enhanced games and a total of right about 2000 Xbox One games (yes including backwards compatibility, so the number his higher than JUST Xbox One titles) I'm going to say your statement is inaccurate.

    Never understood if there is seriously a market for this? I am sure there are people out there who buy certain game versions hence they keep making one. But how many are such consoles sold?

    I have Xbox One and I didn't even consider buying One S, let alone such themes consoles.

    I don't know know if I should post this, because it may seem like an ad.....but this memorial day holiday season, I am seeing the Xbox one X going as low as $250! Yes, the X. Who would want to buy the JV console (in purple) when you can get the Varsity one?
