Microsoft Announces Four New Xbox One S Bundles

Microsoft has been releasing excellent bundles and offers with the Xbox One S since its launch back in August 2016. With Microsoft’s launch of the Xbox One S, Microsoft has killed off the original 2013 Xbox One. With the launch of the Xbox One S and announcement of the Xbox One X, it seems like these are the only two focuses for Microsoft as we head into the future.

Recently, Microsoft has announced four more Xbox One S bundles that bundle a number of excellent titles. Based on Minecraft, Rocket League, Halo and a newbie starter bundle.

Xbox One S Starter Pack

The second launch is pretty interesting as it caters newcomers to the Xbox One S. Dubbed as the Xbox One S starter bundle, the Xbox One S starter bundle comes with everything you need to kick off your Xbox One gaming experience with an Xbox One S 500GB console, an Xbox One Wireless controller, Microsoft’s Xbox Live Gold Membership for 3 months and lasty, access to Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass that gives players instant access to over 100 titles for three months straight.

This bundle would set you back around $279 USD / £229 GBP / €279 EUR.

Xbox One S Rocket League Blast-Off Bundle

You might have been living under a rock if you’ve never heard of Rocket League. Take soccer to the next-level with rocket-equipped cars. Rocket League is one the most popular multiplayer titles across all platforms, and if you were going to join the Xbox One family anyways, why not try out Rocket League with the Xbox One S Rocket League Blast-Off Bundle. For £229 GBP / €279 EUR you get:

Xbox One S Ultimate Halo Bundle

If you’re a Halo fan finally willing to upgrade from the Xbox 360 or Xbox One to Microsoft’s new consoles, then look no further, the Xbox One S Ultimate Halo Bundle is for you. For $279 you get:

  • Xbox One S with 500GB hard drive

  • 14-day Xbox Live Gold trial – Play games with friends near or far Xbox Live with a 14-day trial.

This bundle won’t be available worldwide as it is a Walmart US exclusive.

To be honest, these are some excellent bundles. However, if you could wait, wait for November/December where these consoles would get a further markdown during the holiday season. If you can’t wait, personally, I would recommend users to get some other bundle rather than the Starter bundle as the other bundles do come at the same price but have varying membership offers.
