If you considering the purchase of a brand new Xbox One S ahead of the holiday season, Microsoft has unveiled a pretty interesting collection of bundles over the last few weeks, including custom versions of the console. Back in July, the first bundle to be announced was the $449 Xbox One S 2TB Gears of Wars 4 Limited Edition bundle including a heavily customized console. But for Gears of War 4 enthusiasts looking for cheaper options, two new Gears of 4 bundles have been announced today on Xbox Wire.
The first one is the $349 Xbox One S 1TB Gears of War 4 bundle which comes with a white Xbox One S and a digital copy of the game. As this Microsoft Studios title supports Xbox Play Anywhere, this means that you’ll be able to play the game on both your Xbox One and a Windows 10 PC at no additional cost which shared progress, achievements and more.
If you’re not a fan of the new console’s signature "robot white" color, the Xbox team has also announced today a $299 Xbox One S 500GB Gears of War 4 Special Edition Bundle including a special edition deep blue console with matching Xbox Wireless Controller. This bundle will be exclusively available at GameStop and Microsoft Stores in the US and at EB Games and Microsoft Stores in Australia, though be aware that the bundle will ship with a physical copy of the game in the US (which means no support for Xbox Play Anywhere) and a download token in Australia.
Consumers can pre-order the two new bundles starting today and get the entire collection of backward compatible Xbox 360 Gears of War titles at no additional cost. If you like this special deep blue Xbox One S but are not a Gears of War fan, we remind you that Microsoft has also announced two Battlefield 1 bundles including special editions consoles in storm grey and military green colors.
