Microsoft has unveiled two new console bundles for the Xbox One that feature two of this year’s upcoming titles specifically Madden NFL 15 and Sunset Overdrive. The announcement of the new bundles has also led to the unveiling of a consumer-available White Xbox One which will come in the Subset Overdrive bundle.
The Madden NFL 15 bundle will feature a standard Xbox One console set (console, wireless controller, and chat headset) minus the Kinect, a download code for the game, and a token for three Madden NFL Ultimate Team Pro Packs. The bundle will be available for pre-order soon or at select retailers on August 26 for only $399 which means the downloadable copy of Madden NFL 15 is actually being given to buyers of the bundle for free. According to the announcement, the Madden NFL 15 bundle will be available in limited supply only.
“The ‘Madden NFL’ series from Electronic Arts has spanned more than 25 years and five console generations. It’s a franchise that’s synonymous with intense realistic sports action, technical innovation and rabid football fandom. Only on Xbox One, the Official Game Console of the NFL, can you play a game of Madden while tracking your fantasy football team with the NFL on Xbox app snapped to the side,” said the announcement on Xbox Wire.
The second bundle, which a Microsoft spokesperson revealed to Polygon, comes with the upcoming and much anticipated game from Insomniac Games, Sunset Overdrive. The bundle will also feature a white version of the Xbox One console and wireless controller which were previously only given to Microsoft Xbox team members during the launch of the console late last year. While the Microsoft spokesperson did not reveal a price and release date for the Sunset Overdrive bundle, it is expected to be released in October in time with the release of the game.
The company also did not announce if the Sunset Overdrive bundle will or will not include Kinect or if they plan to release the white Xbox One console separately or in different bundles with or without Kinect.
