Microsoft is pushing its holiday line-up of systems pretty hardcore this year, with the Xbox One X making its way to retail on November 7th and its Xbox One S getting some traction, including its limited edition Minecraft bundle.
But just to assure that everyone has something to play, the company has announced a new four-pack of system bundles that offer something to everyone, and with reasonable prices to boot. And they should all be available fairly soon.
Let's break down each of the bundles below and see what each one comes with – and more importantly, how much they'll run you.
Xbox One S Minecraft Complete Adventure Bundle
For those of you that can't get the limited edition Minecraft bundle, this is the next best thing. This package comes with a white Xbox One S with 500GB hard drive, a matching white controller, a full game download code for Minecraft; a separate download code for Minecraft: Story Mode Season 1 – The Complete Adventure (Episodes 1-8) and the add-on Minecraft: Explorer's Pack, featuring a number of skins. The pack will also have a one month Xbox Game Pass and a 14-day Xbox Live Gold trial. It'll go for $279.prevnext
Xbox One S Rocket League Blast Off Bundle
If you're looking to get more into the sporty side of things, you can take on the Rocket League bundle, which goes for $279 Euros (it looks like a European exclusive, at least for now), and will include an Xbox One S white system with a 500GB hard drive, a matching white controller, and a full game download for Rocket League. A one-month Xbox Game Pass and a 14-day trial to Xbox Live Gold is also included, so you can get right into the multiplayer shenanigans.prevnext
Xbox One S Starter Bundle
This one looks to be the most basic of the Xbox One S bundles, but it still has a lot to offer for those that just want an instant downloadable game library. It goes for $279 and features a 500GB Xbox One S system, colored white, with a white controller to match. However, the big difference here is that it comes with three months of the Xbox Game Pass, as well as three months of Xbox Live Gold. That serves a special benefit, especially to those that just want to download games and get to playing.prevnext
Xbox One S Ultimate Halo Bundle0comments
Finally, in what is sure to be a huge draw to Halo fans, there's this bundle, which comes with a white 500GB Xbox One S system with matching controller, as well as full game download codes for both Halo 5: Guardians and Halo: The Master Chief Collection, giving you almost the entire game legacy in one shot. In addition, you can access other titles with the one month Xbox Game Pass, as well as a 14-day trial for Xbox Live Gold.
So which bundle is best then? We'll probably go with the Halo bundle, although the Minecraft one serves great dividends to fans as well.prev
