Microsoft announces 1TB Xbox One Fallout 4 bundle also includes Fallout 3

first_imgMicrosoft has announced a number of new Xbox One bundles over the past week, but the last is likely to be the one that gets the most attention and sales because of the game it includes. That game is Fallout 4.Bethesda is set to release Fallout 4 on November 10 following a pre-order campaign that saw special editions sell out extremely quickly. Now Microsoft wants some of that action, so they’ve decided to create a Fallout 4 Bundle. In the pack you’ll get a 1TB Xbox One console, standard wireless controller (the latest version including the 3.5mm headset jack), chat headset, and a copy of Fallout 4 (physical version). To sweeten the deal, Microsoft is also including a downloadable version of Fallout 3 to play, which is possible due to the introduction of backwards compatibility for everyone in November.As you’d expect, Microsoft will start selling the bundle on Fallout 4 launch day, November 10, although you can pre-order it from a Microsoft Store, Target, Best Buy, GameStop, or Amazon. The price is $399.99.While the bundle is good value for money considering the content, Microsoft could have done more. For starters, the Xbox One box could have carried a better Fallout 4-themed design rather than just a bar of artwork across the bottom. Then there’s the console, which is just a standard black unit. If you’re making a special bundle for the game launch, why not put some Fallout 4 artwork on the console casing? I guarantee it would get more interest/sales.If you’re in the market for an Xbox One then this is certainly a tempting offer and sure to be popular. The inclusion of Fallout 3 will form a quandary for some gamers, though. Do you play that first, or dive right into Fallout 4 and come back to Fallout 3 later? I suspect most will opt to play the fourth game first.last_img read more
