With the introduction of the new year, Microsoft has announced some very special surprises for Xbox customers. Today they announced two new bundles for Xbox One titled the Xbox One Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Bundle and the Xbox One 500GB Name Your Game Bundle.
Micosoft partnered with Ubisoft to bring fans the Xbox One Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Bundle. According to Xbox Wire, The Xbox One console features “a 1 TB hard drive, a copy of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege and full-game downloads of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas 2.” The Rainbow Six Siege bundle will be available for $399.
The second bundle to be offered by Microsoft for the new year is the Name Your Game Bundle, which features a 500GB Xbox One console and your choice of a free download from one of the leading gaming titles: Forza Motorsport 6, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Gears of War: Ultimate Edition or Rare Replay.
The bundle will be available on January 12 for $349 in Australia, Germany, Ireland, Mexico, New Zealand and the U.K. and won’t be available until late January in the U.S., Brazil and Canada.
Out of the two bundle deals mentioned, it’s hard to say which deal is better. On the one hand, you have an Xbox One with a giant hard drive, but only one series included with the console. But then the trade-off is a slightly smaller hard drive, but a wider selection for choosing what free game is included with your bundle. It’s almost like a customized “Create-your-own-bundle” deal; there really isn’t anything better than that. Upon seeing all of the great recent bundle deals, one Twitter user has some regrets.
The bundles are now available for pre-order on Amazon. PlayStation and Xbox are warring with who can provide the better holiday deals, seeing as PlayStation just announced 40 new PS3 exclusive titles that were added to PlayStation Now. Which team are you, Team PS4 or Team Xbox One?
