Microsoft Rounds Out Its Xbox One S Bundles

Today, Microsoft announced two new Xbox One S bundles—the Madden NFL 17 Bundle and the Halo Collection Bundle—which will arrive on August 23. They join the standalone Xbox One S consoles and one previously announced bundle, the Gears of War 4 Limited Edition 2TB Bundle, which ships October 7.

These three bundles, plus multiple versions of the standalone Xbox One S console, and different versions of the new Xbox Wireless Controller, including the ones you can customize via the Xbox Design Lab, provide gamers with an unprecedented level of choice and customization. Plus, I assume we’ll see further bundles appear as we head into the holiday season.

Here’s what’s happening with the Xbox One S bundles.
