Microsoft, Rockstar, GameStop and Best Buy have all collaborated on a bundled deal for the Xbox One that includes a practical steal on a ton of great games at a really cheap price, stuffed into a reasonably priced package for the Xbox One. What am I talking about? Well, at Best Buy and GameStop you can get several games and the Xbox One console and a Shark Card for only $349.99.
Gamespot is reporting that both GameStop and Best Buy have a bundle deal going on that includes an Xbox One home console and a free copy of Grand Theft Auto V, along with a $20 Great White Shark Card, which provides gamers with $1.25 million worth of in-game virtual currency.
While that bundle deal sounds good all on its own, the thing that really makes it stand out is the fact that you can get all of that for $349.99 and if you visit the GameStop listings you'll notice that you can combine this with other bundle deals that includes Gears of War Ultimate Edition or the LEGO Movie or a bundle that includes both Gears of War Ultimate Edition and Forza Motorsport 6, all without the price changing. In the latter's case, you would end up with three free games and a home console for only $349.99.
For $50 more you could upgrade to things like the Tom Clancy's The Division bundle, which packs in a copy of Ubisoft's latest third-person MMO shooter, or Rainbow Six: Siege.
Alternatively, there's the Xbox One holiday bundle pack, which is the one that gives you the most bang for your buck. At $399.99 you get the Xbox One home console, GTA V, the Great White Shark Card, Gears of War Ultimate Edition, a digital code for the Rare Replay that contains 30 games all on its own, and a free digital copy of Ori and the Blind Forest. So in total, you technically get 33 games and an Xbox One home console for only $399.99. You have to admit that that's an unbelievably great deal and enough games to keep you occupied for almost all of 2016.
And just note that the Rare Replay isn't just a bunch of old retro titles, this also includes games like Banjo-Kazooie, Banjo-Tooie, Kameo, Conker's Bad Fur Day, Perfect Dark Zero, Perfect Dark and even two different Viva Pinata games. Even classics like Jet Force Gemini and the N64 fighting game Killer Instinct Gold are included in the package. So you're getting a very fine mix of both new and old games alike.
Best Buy tries to outdo GameStop with their own listing for Xbox One bundles. They have many of the same bundled deals for the console that also includes GTA V, the Shark Card and a series of other games. However, the added bonus from Best Buy is that they have a Choose Your Own Game bundle where you get the aforementioned items but also the option to choose another free AAA game to include in the bundle, ranging from Forza Motorsport 6, Gears of War Ultimate Edition, Rare Replay or Rise of the Tomb Raider for only $349.99. You can check out the Best Buy deals over on their official website.
It might be best to hurry because the deals are expected to only last through the week.
