Microsoft is gearing up for the launch of Sea of Thieves – its upcoming cooperative pirate adventure game for Xbox One and Windows 10 Following a well-received beta test earlier this year, its developer Rare continues to unveil new content, surrounding progression, monetization and more.
It now appears two new Xbox One bundles will be accompanying the launch of Sea of Thieves, providing potential pirates an all-in-one package to secure your sea legs. As uncovered by a user on ResetEra, Amazon DE listings have surfaced for Xbox One S and Xbox One X consoles bundled with a copy of the game. Without an official announcement from Microsoft, both listings have since been removed, although assets for the two listings still remain accessible.
The first of these bundles includes a white Xbox One S console with 1 TB of internal storage and an Xbox One S controller. Included is a redeemable code for a digital copy of Sea of Thieves (perfect for Xbox Play Anywhere), alongside one month of Xbox Game Pass and one month of Xbox Live Gold. Although the listing didn't disclose pricing, $299 is expected, provided Microsoft brings this console to the U.S.
Microsoft's latest flagship console, the Xbox One X, also appears to be receiving its own bundle deal through Amazon. Unlike the Xbox One S counterpart, this appears to bundle the standard 1TB Xbox One X with a physical version of the game. As with all Xbox One X consoles, this version will include a black controller, one month of Xbox Game Pass and a two-week trial for Xbox Live Gold. While lacking pricing once again, $499 can be expected if available in the U.S.
Sea of Thieves launches on March 20th, 2018 for Xbox One and Windows 10 as part of Xbox Play Anywhere for $59.99, or as part of Xbox Game Pass for $9.99 per month. With its release soon approaching, it's likely we'll hear more about the bundles in the days, or weeks to come.

Microsoft has given us no reason to believe the Surface Duo will be good
Microsoft has made some amazing Surface products, but there's nothing in its history, or what we know so far, that leads me to be confident that the Surface Duo will be a good product. It's incredibly ambitious, but it's being set up to fail.
Hands-on with Surface Duo's OS gestures, spanning, app groups, and more
Microsoft's Surface Duo is coming soon, and the company has been working hard on finalizing the version of Android that will be shipping on Surface Duo later this year. Microsoft has released several emulator builds over the last few months, with each one progressing with new changes, bug fixes, and overall polish. Let's go hands-on with the latest build!
