Xbox One Titanfall bundle discontinued

Microsoft's Xbox head Phil Spencer has revealed that the company won't offer the Xbox One game console in a bundle with Respawn Entertainment's sci-fi shooter Titanfall anymore.

Microsoft first launched a version of the Xbox One with its Kinect sensor and a digital download copy of Titanfall several months ago for $499. This week, when a fan asked Spencer on Twitter if Microsoft could sell an Xbox One Titanfall bundle without the Kinect sensor, Spencor simply replied. "Titanfall bundle is done." While there may be a few of those bundles still left unsold at local retailers, it looks like this particular deal is finished.

However, Microsoft has a bunch of upcoming Xbox One bundles that are currently available for pre-order, including one with a digital copy of Madden NFL 15 in the US for $399.99 and one for FIFA 15 in Europe for €399.99 and for £349.99 in the UK. A white Xbox One and a white controller will be sold with a digital copy of Sunset Overdrive for $399.99. Finally, an Xbox One bundle with a 1 TB hard drive, and custom artwork for the console and controller, will be sold with a digital copy of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare for $499.99.
