The Xbox One S is the newest console from Microsoft and it is looking like a hit right out of the gate. Microsoft is hoping to replace the original Xbox One with the slimmer eye candy that is Xbox One S before the end of 2016.
The 2TB edition of the console is expected to hit store shelves come August 2, 2016 for $399. There’s a 1TB and 500GB version planned, but those won’t be ready until August 23, 2016. The interesting thing about these two versions is that they come bundled with games.
The 1TB version that will go for $349 comes with a copy of Madden NFL 17. For those who love American Football, this is a great deal that should not be passed up especially if you’ve never owned an Xbox One before.
The 500GB model is bundled with Halo: The Master Chief Collection and Halo 5: Guardians and is priced at $299. There’s also a 1TB version with the same games as well, and it will be priced similarly to the Madden NFL 17 bundle. Bear in mind that the 1TB version in the U.S. will be available in limited quantities, only at Microsoft Stores both online and offline.
We hope to see more bundles like these in the future as Microsoft moves to replace the old with the new. Several Xbox Play Anywhere exclusives are destined to be released before the end of 2016, with the potential for any one of them to be bundled with an Xbox One S. So far, we know there will be a custom Gears of War 4 Xbox One S that comes with a copy of the game.
