ICE Graveyard 26/07/2016 Brian Heater

Sure the plain ole Xbox got a price drop down to $249 ahead of the release of the console’s svelte new configuration, but Microsoft’s still looking to lure in bargain hunters who’ve been eying the 40-percent slimmer new console.

This morning the company showed off two Xbox One S bundles, due out a few weeks after the system’s August 2nd debut, each featuring one of the platform’s most popular franchises.

Users in the US and Canada will get an opportunity to pick up the Xbox One S alongside Madden NFL 17, a bundle that includes a 1TB hard drive, a download of the football title (or a physical copy for those who buy it at GameStop), seven Madden Ultimate Team Pro Packs, a free month of EA Access usage and a discount coupon for That’ll run $349.

The 1TB version of the new Xbox One S Halo Collection costs the same, bundled with Halo 5: Guardians and Halo: The Master Chief Collection, which span the series’ five flagship titles. There will also be a 500GB version for $299.

Along with a slimmer build, the new console configuration features a built-in power supply, more front-facing USB ports, 4K and HDR support and a newly designed controller. Both bundles are set to arrive August 23rd.
