The Xbox One Elite Bundle is the perfect package for hardcore gamers

August 31st, 2015 at 6:00 PM
Xbox One Elite Bundle Price Release Date

Microsoft has been the king of aggressive bundles this console generation. Gamers have had countless opportunities to pick up an Xbox One and get a newly released game for free, but the latest bundle brings something new to the table.

If you were paying attention during E3 2015, you might remember Microsoft announcing the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller. With this new bundle, not only will you get the Elite Controller, you’ll also get a matte-finished Xbox One console with a new 1TB Solid State Hybrid Drive, giving you a slight performance edge over everyone who bought the first 1TB bundle.

According to Microsoft, the hybrid drive will allow gamers to access content 20 percent faster from energy-saving mode than with the standard hard drive. This might not sound like much, but we all know how excruciating those additional seconds can be when you’re loading up a brand new game.

If you haven’t seen the Elite Controller, it’s quite a sight to behold. It’s weightier than the original controller and allows gamers to customize the components, from the thumbsticks and D-pads to the paddles on the back. On its own, the Elite Controller will run you $149.99, so if you were planning on picking one up anyway, this bundle is for you.

Microsoft also revealed a Special Edition Lunar White Wireless Controller which will go on sale exclusively at GameStop for $64.99 in late September. It features the 3.5mm headset jack of the updated standard controller, “improved grip texture” and a new color scheme.

The Xbox One Elite Bundle will be available worldwide for $499.99 starting in November. In the U.S., the bundle will be available exclusively from GameStop and Microsoft Stores starting on November 3rd.
