Microsoft is taking pre-orders for the Xbox One S 1TB and 500GB consoles in the U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand for $349 and $299, respectively. They go on sale Aug. 23, with Microsoft offering bundles with free Halo and Madden NFL 17 games.
Xbox Wire states the Xbox One S Madden NFL 17 bundle will only be sold in the U.S and Canada, and only in the 1TB model. It will include a code to download the full version of Electronic Arts' pro football game, along a 14-day free Xbox Live Gold trial code and one month of EA Access service. It will also have 7 Madden Ultimate Team Pro Packs and a promo code for 20% off your next purchase at NFLShop.com.
The Halo Xbox One S bundles will come in both 1TB and 500GB versions and will be available in the U.S, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. They will include a free disc copy of Halo 5: Guardians and a digital download for Halo: The Master Chief Collection. The company notes that the 1TB Xbox One S Halo bundle will be available in the U.S. in "very limited quantities" via the Microsoft Store site and at select Microsoft retail stores.
The 2TB version of the Xbox One S, which does not have any free games bundled with it, is still available for pre-order for $399 and will start shipping on August 2.
