Halo: The Master Chief Collection to be bundled with Xbox One for free

People who have yet to buy the Xbox One have yet another option to consider. Microsoft will launch a version of the console later this month that will include a digital download code for the recent Halo: The Master Chief Collection. The console will be sold for its regular price of $349.

Technically, that means buyers of this bundle will get four free games plus some additional content. Halo: The Master Chief Collection contains graphically revamped versions of Halo 1, 2, 3 and 4. It also contains access to the live-action digital feature film Halo: Nightfall. Microsoft first released Halo: The Master Chief Collection in November, but the game was plagued with online matchmaking issues that prevented many players from participating in multiplayer matches. Microsoft and developer 343 Industries have released a series of patches for the game that have improved the matchmaking process, including one that was made available just last week.

As you can see, the Xbox One Halo: The Master Chief Collection Bundle comes in its own special packaging so it shouldn't be hard to find when it goes on sale in your local retail store later in March.
