Here’s one of the best Xbox One S bundle deals we’ve seen

Xbox One S

Sometimes a console bundle is so ruddy good that you’d be mad to pass it up – and we’ve found just the sort.

GAME is selling a cracking Xbox One S (500GB) bundle that nets you Fifa 17, Halo 5, Gears of War 4, and Injustice 2. Better still, you’ll also get a Now TV Movie Pass, giving you access to hundreds of films for two months.

All this will set you back just £209.99, which is a seriously fair price. After all, the Xbox One S alone usually sells for £205. Here’s Amazon’s pricing for individual items, for comparison:

  • Xbox One S Fifa 17 Bundle – £209.85
  • Halo 5: Guardians – £14.39
  • Gears of War 4 – £14.99
  • Injustice 2 – £41.94
  • Now TV Movies (2-month) – £14.98

That all adds up to £296.15, which means you’d be saving a hefty £86.16 with this deal.

We gave the Xbox One S a respectable 4/5 score in our review, praising its small size, 4K game upscaling, impressive value for money as a UHD Blu-ray player, HDR compatibility, and the improved, grippy controller. Here’s our verdict:

"The Xbox One S is far better than the original Xbox One, with improvements on every front. It’s smaller, it’s prettier and it includes a greater number of features. Sure, the gaming element is almost unchanged, but HDR gaming compatibility means at least a degree of future-proofing. Then there's the 4K output: although it's upscaled, rather than native, right now this is the best you'll get from a console."

Gears of War 4

"But the real worth is the ability to play UHD Blu-rays. This is the most affordable 4K Blu-ray player on the market, and it’s a competent performer to boot. If you own a 4K TV and you want your movies and games looking their best, the Xbox One S is a no-brainer."

"Microsoft faces competition from Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro. While the Sony offers 4K and HDR in gaming, it doesn't play UHD Blu-rays. That's a major omission in my book, leaving an open goal for the Xbox One S."

We’ve also been impressed by the bundle items too:

Fifa 17 (4/5): "FIFA 17 is another strong entry in the iconic series, and one that looks to lay the groundwork for future titles by switching to a new engine. The hyper-realistic graphics are great, with facial expressions finally helping players look more than mannequins.”

Halo 5 (4/5): "The exceptional high points and brilliant multiplayer make it a must-play for just about anyone with an Xbox One, but it's going to be a long time before we'll know if 343 has made the right choices here or taken Halo down a path that's best not travelled.”

Gears of War 4 (4.5/5): "Gears Of War 4 does everything required to get the franchise roadie-running into 2016 without losing what made it so good to begin with. One of the best games on the Xbox One.”

Injustice 2 (4.5/5): "Injustice 2 is both a fantastic fighting game and a great use of the DC licence, too. You won’t find much better in the genre on either the Xbox One or PS4."

And then a year down the line, a new Xbox is released? It's getting a bit ridiculous now really.

what? how is it? this came out 3 years after the original xbox one, and its a big upgrade, scorpio is an even bigger upgrade catering to people like me that want more.

scorpio is not a new xbox its just a more powerful xbox one the s model will still be sold and will make up most of the sales even when Scorpio is out

i dont know why this is so hard for people to understand

Maybe you missing the boat here. It's not about an upgraded model, it's about having an obsolete model within a couple of years of release. The life cycle of consoles are important, unlike PCs. C'mon now...What's the point of having a console if it's only going to be supported for a couple of years before a new model is released?

People who want more should really be looking at the PC market then buddy. Not wasting cash on a console that'll be phased out in a couple of years.

None of the xbox ones are obsolete though they are all being supported once the Scorpio model comes out and 360/ps3 lasted far to long and should never have been that long imo life cycles of consoles are important sure but so is keeping up with technology 4k tv will soon become standard and in 3 years ps4 pro and the xbox one Scorpio will be replaced gone are the days of super long life cycles

Yeah, because a console that costs less than the price of a top end PC graphics card is entirely comparable :)

Only thing is consoles are not equal to high end PCs. You looking at a mid range PC at best, if you wanna compare specs.

Yeah, and this bundle is around £150 less than an 8GB 1070, which isn't high end by any stretch of the imagination.

I've got an Xbox One S and a gaming PC (i5 4690K and an ASUS 980 OC based system) and my Xbox One S gets as much if not more game time from me.

Even at the absolute top end of estimated pricing, £600, the Scorpio will cost significantly less than a decent gaming PC. Yes, you could probably spec a mid/low end rig for a bit more (once you've factored the OS in) but in reality, who wants to buy a mid/low end rig when the games are optimised for the high end? I certainly didn't.

Perhaps for your requirements. I really don't see the point in shelling out cash for a system with a minimal life cycle . It simply doesn't make sense to me at all.

You get more bang for your buck with PCs, with more versatility in use.It's not just for consumption.

The console market is panicking and trying to play catch up, at the expense of the consumer. Not a great future for all consoles with minimal lifecycles on machines due to rapid development , people moving to mobile gaming and console architecture beginning to resemble PCs in more ways than ever, in any event.

The old cash strapped argument is becoming a bit tedious imo.
