Microsoft has started taking pre-orders on its store website for a version of its Xbox One game console that will come bundled with Electronic Arts' upcoming pro football game Madden NFL 15 for the console's regular price of $399.99.

The deal offers buyers a digital download copy of the game, rather than a physical disc and will include a token for three Madden NFL Ultimate Team Pro Packs. It also comes in its own special packaging, as seen above. As with all of the $399.99 versions of the Xbox One, it does not come with the Kinect motion gesture add-on sensor. The bundle is scheduled to ship on August 26.

This is just the latest collaboration between Microsoft and the NFL. A revamped version of the official NFL app for the Xbox One was announced on Sunday which will offer a number of new features and improvements.
