Microsoft Announces Xbox One 'Titanfall' Special Edition Bundle

Yusuf Mehdi-

After it was first unveiled at E3 last year, we were delighted to see “Titanfall” quickly become the most anticipated game of the new console generation. Winning more than 80 coveted awards from critics around the world, “Titanfall” has been described as “a brave new vision of the future of multiplayer games”, “the first real next-gen shooter” and “the most addictive game ever.”

Heralded as the “next generation of gaming” and a “killer app” for Xbox One, the excitement and anticipation for “Titanfall” has been building not just amongst gamers, but also among the Xbox team. We bet big on “Titanfall” from the beginning and Respawn Entertainment and Electronic Arts were tremendous partners to our team as we developed Xbox One. (TitanFall, Xbox One)

That is NOT a special edition bundle as special editions are consoles with the games theme designed on it. This is just a bundle with a game download code. Nothing special about and that disappoints me cause I would have trouble resisting a Titanfall themed console.

I also found it odd that they don't include the controller. After with some conversations with others though we came to the conclusion they probably didn't include the controller to keep the price point low, adding the controller would have forced the price up. This way they can basically sell an XO with a free copy of Titanfall.

then why do you put a misleading thumbnail for this article when it has no truth in it?
Jamiex66  +   337d ago
The image was provided by Microsoft, one of the few along with the press release actually. Showcasing the box of the controller itself, which I speak about in the article.

The actual image I have in the article wasn't the right side to place as a thumbnail. I apologise for any misleading, I was just working with what Microsoft provided me :)

I got my my X1 last monday from best buy, I got the system BF4 and a Year of Live for $520 so I guess I'm not mad, if that had been a Limited Edition console I would pissed tho. I love the Xbox tho way way cooler than I thought it would be. Graphics are plenty good too, to me from a cool stand point as well as gaming the Xbox One is a must buy if it has free Titanfall and a month of live thats only $30 more than PS4.
HomerDog  +   337d ago
it's still a special edition. if it was a limited edition then yes u would be right. besides this is a awesome bundle you get the game for free plus a month of xbl.
Volkama  +   337d ago
Now that raises an interesting point. All the consoles are shipping with a free game that can only be used if you have a Gold subscription.

Never look a gift horse in the mouth. It's a good bundle.
yarbie1000  +   337d ago
It is a bundle that comes with a game that has limited supply and costs the same as a normal bundle. It isn't a normal bundle. It's a special bundle.
hulk_bash1987  +   337d ago
They should have at least offered the limited edition controller with the bundle. But great for people who have been waiting for Titanfall to make the leap to "Next-gen/Current gen" whatever we're calling it now.

How come they always give digital, why not a physical copy?
Eonjay  +   337d ago
its cheaper.
desolationstorm  +   337d ago
You also cannot sell it.
DarthZoolu  +   337d ago
Don't sell It play it.
ger2396  +   337d ago
Nice incentive for anyone looking to buy an Xbox 1.
Eonjay  +   337d ago
Well considering that its basically free. That is a nice incentive. This is basically their best chance to sell the Xbox. Also, if you plan to buy an Xbox One, You better wait till March 11th. Otherwise you are basically wasting a free game.
Wikkid666  +   337d ago
Great deal! but the one thing to take note of... it's a digital copy of Titanfall.
Team_Litt  +   337d ago
Which is exactly the same game, except you don't have to get up to change discs. . .not that I'd be playing any other game to begin with
Wikkid666  +   337d ago
I have zero issues with digital games. Some people might.
VENOMACR1227  +   337d ago
My problem with digital games is the resale. You can't let your friend borrow it to play on their system and you can't sell it to CrapStop or on sleazeBay.
Eonjay  +   337d ago
Once again, the insiders were proven right... I wonder what else they were right about.
Twilightx7  +   337d ago
Insiders showed off a custom Titanfall-themed XBox, this is just a regular system+game bundle, which is kind of a no-brainer for a "killer app". They were not proven right.
Eonjay  +   337d ago
The box art is the SAME. I don't know if the console was photoshopped but the box art is confirmation enough.
supraking951  +   337d ago
lol i bet EA is desperate, Titanfall preordered arent as big as expected. MS needs to sell as much Xbones as possible cause there Jan and Feb sales are so low lol.
desolationstorm  +   337d ago
I said I would hold off until a bundle and didn't expect one this early. Done deal, nextgen collection complete.
Bernlock  +   337d ago
Great news for people on the fence. This will only beef up the install base on the One which is what they want. Great news for the customers
Edvin1984  +   337d ago
This is a good deal for some one that does not have a X1 yet. My buddy is moving his 360 into the bed room, and upgrading to the X1 with this bundle. Good more value for gamers.
Mikethejew  +   337d ago
I'd be upset if I payed 500 for the xbone and this came out. Luckily I found one on craigslist new for $430. But it's a slap in the face of early adopters as usual.
HacSawJimThugin  +   337d ago
Awesome news to potential buyers...now come on March 11th!!
XiSasukeUchiha  +   337d ago
Titanfall not bad but is there an 1TB hard drive ?
Audiggity  +   337d ago
I ordered it before it sold out (already gone on Newegg). Clearly MS isn't just* doing this to move consoles if there is a limited supply. If they were truly desperate, there would be no limit to the bundle.

Early adopters always get slapped in the face. 99.9% of the time that is what happens. If you have a good TV from 5 years ago, guess what? It's at Walmart now for $700 and comes with a case of Mountain Dew.

It would have been awesome if they threw in 2 of the limited edition controllers, Titanfall and scrapped the Kinect.

Sidenote: MS should launch an "XBox One Configurator" where you can mix and match products and make your own bundles with stacked discounts.
Ra3030  +   337d ago
Though Titanbot maker Respawn will never say it....this stings. And yes! I know M$ has the game rights to do what they want. Respawn wants this game to sell on it's own. It also stings the die hard fan base that paid top dollar at launch though they too will never say anything.
