If you're looking to forego the upcoming Xbox One X and grab an Xbox One S instead, Microsoft has some new options for you. The company has announced (opens in new tab) four new Xbox One S bundles, each of which is packed with additional game content alongside the console itself.
Here's a look at all of the bundles, all of which are available now:
- Xbox One S Minecraft Complete Adventure Bundle - $279 / £229 GBP / €279 EUR (opens in new tab)
- Xbox One S Rocket League Blast-Off Bundle - £229 GBP / €279 EUR (opens in new tab)
- Xbox One S Starter Bundle - $279 / £229 GBP / €279 EUR (opens in new tab)
- Xbox One S Ultimate Halo Bundle - $279 (opens in new tab)
In terms of content, each bundle is fairly self-explanatory about what is included. The Minecraft Complete Adventure Bundle, for example, includes the full Minecraft game along with a download code for the Minecraft Explorer's Pack and Minecraft: Story Mode Season 1 - Complete Adventure. The Ultimate Halo Bundle, which is only available online and at Walmart in the U.S., is an odd addition because it looks to be a repackaged version of the Halo Collection Bundle. Packed alongside the console are Halo 5: Guardians and Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
The Rocket League bundle is only available in the UK and select European regions, and it includes a full download code for vehicular soccer game Rocket League. Lastly, the Starter Bundle eschews bundling a single game in favor of offering a three-month subscription to Xbox Game Pass with its catalog of more than 100 games.
Like other bundles, each of these new consoles includes an Xbox Wireless Controller, along with a three-month subscription to Xbox Live Gold. All bundles except the Starter Bundle also pack one month of Xbox Game Pass.

The halo bundle should include the ODST DLC and probably HW DE + HW2 for a "complete edition". But it's still an awesome package.
I bought the XboxOne master chief edition back then.
If only they could launch new games/Ips as often as they launch new bundles, new UI design and controllers... I guess it's much cheaper to invest in repackaging, redesigning and marketing.
Doesn't matter, all my mind on November 7th
Personally, I'm waiting for actual benchmark... Less than one month to go. Did they release anything yet?
