Microsoft Announces New Gear 5 Xbox Hardware

Microsoft today announced a suite of new Gears 5-branded hardware, including Xbox bundles, consoles, controllers, and more.

“We’re just a month away from early access for Gears 5 with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, and to celebrate the occasion, The Coalition has announced a suite of new Gears 5 hardware,” an Xbox representative told me. “Preorders begin today at select retailers worldwide, including a Microsoft Store near you and online.”

Here’s what’s coming.

Xbox One X Gears 5 Limited Edition Bundle. This $500 bundle features the first Limited Edition Xbox One X since the Project Scorpio Edition. It was designed by The Coalition and the Xbox Industrial Design Team and features “a never-before-seen dark translucent casing and laser-etched cracks across the console’s icy top surface, with snow drifting across a golden Locust symbol on the back.” The bundle includes a 1 TB Xbox One X, an Xbox Wireless controller – Kait Diaz Limited Edition, and Gears 5 Ultimate Edition, plus Gears of War Ultimate Edition and Gears of War 2, 3, and 4.

    <p>Can we have weapon sharped controllers instead of having to normal game pad if playing shoot them games. I think gaming should be made really experiential rather than just entertaining.
