Microsoft to Launch Xbox One S PUBG Bundle

Microsoft announced today that it will soon begin selling an Xbox One S “PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds” Bundle for $300.

“We’ve been blown away by the response to PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds on Xbox One,” Microsoft general manager Matt Lapsen writes. “Today, we’re excited to announce the Xbox One S PlayerUnknown’s BattlegroundsBundle, offering fans the best value in games and entertainment with the hottest game on the planet.”

The bundle will cost $300 and can be preordered now. It includes a 1 TB Xbox One S and Xbox Wireless Controller in white, a full-game download of the hit game title PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, a 1-month Xbox Live Gold trial, and a 1-month Xbox Game Pass trial.

As you may recall, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has been on a tear: There are now over 4 million gamers actively playing the game on Xbox One. And one should assume that this bundle is designed, and timed, to keep this success going.
