CraveOnline: "Want an Xbox One, but waiting for a bundle before jumping in? This holiday season may have something for you."
What is leading them to believe it's Sunset Overdrive? I would think a Halo MCC bundle would be more effective at (like they say) combating the Destiny bundle.
As much as I love what Halo: MCC offers, I think Sunset Overdrive is a better choice. It shows that the Xbox One has new experiences to share, rather than re-releases.
The general consumers wouldn't care. Halo is a more popular game and everyone knows it. Nobody knows what sunset overdrive is except the ones who follow gamer news. They're more likely to buy a Halo Bundle over a Sunset Overdrive bundle. While the ones who follow game news(minority) are more likely to get the Sunset overdrive bundle. It would be stupid not to have a Halo bundle.
Not sure if sunset overdrive is big enough to warrant a bundle. Halo would make more sense. I would temper any expectation on Sunset until reviews are out. Fuse and R&C:AFO didn't really blaze the charts ya know.
New experience that are likely timed exclusives. The game isnt owned by MS. It is owned by Insomniac, meaning just like last gen, if game gets popular last gen, MS's so called exclusives that MS didnt own got ported to other system or at least PC. w/ guaranteed sequel on multiplat.
You're probably right on a mass market level. I'd buy a Sunset Overdrive bundle but not a Halo one, myself, but I might be the exception rather than the rule.
I dunno, I think it's a good way of hitting a different note in the market. I agree with you, I think it sounds like a fantastic bundle. I think many would agree too.
Why would you combat a game that is also launching on your console?
"A Destiny combatant in training." From the article.
Because of a few exclusive(timed) skins maybe? XD
Because Sunset Overdrive looks fun? Most owners of xbox have already played the Halo series. I would get an XB1 if its at $400 with Sunset Overdrive, that's a crazy bundle and a fun looking game, might be the one game that makes me buy an XB1. At the moment nothing on it attracts me.
Well personally I hope it is Sunset Overdrive, I'd finally pick up an xbone I think. Still can't decide if I want kinect.
Get kinect even if you get it second hand it's worth it for the voice stuff.
I agree with Chris just the other day me and my buddy was gaming on the X1 and he was like I just wreck that dude how do I record that? im like... I just tell the Kinect to do it he got the 399 X1 lol
yeah, giving sunset overdrive would get more people to try the franchise, alot of people will probably get halo anyways. Id imagine they would do a halo 5 bundle tho when that comes out.
Well Sunset Overdrive its an exclusive and deserves this bundle. Here's hope for a Halo 5 bundle.
I think its a great idea, MS should also consider releasing Halo mcc and forza horizon 2 bundles.
That's a lot of bundles man!
Going into the hollidays would be great if they had as many bundles available. Its great to have variety. I know people who will jump on the forza horizon and halo mcc bundles.
Does it really matter to put out that many bundles? I mean all you have to do is get a regular xbone and get the game along with it and it will add up to the same price as a bundle.
Buying things together bundles is usually cheaper then buying them seperate. so yes, the more bundles. the better.
I'd purchase a White XB1 bundle with Sunset Overdrive. It will be a good match with my White PS4.
Image is reversed. Dpad on the right hand side lol
Yes, you're right. The big hole in the top of the console is supposed to be on the right.
A well priced kinectless bundle couldn't seriously tempt me into buying 1! chuck in a year of live and I'm sold.
6 months live and Halo MCC at $399 and I'd put an xone besides my PS4. A console redesign with an upgradable internal HD and I'd get that bundle day one.
External hdd > internal.
I don't get it ? Why is it when a console is white like the OG 360/Wii U /Wii and then when a black one gets announced people go crazy for the black version. ? And when a console is black people go crazy when a white version releases ? Like the PS4/XB1. Me personally i lien all my consoles to be black so they actually match what's in my setup. OT-Hopefully they sell the white controllers separate like what Sony is doing with the white Dualshock 4. I need second controllers for my PS4 and Xbox One. So I'll be getting the white DS4 and if they sell the white Xbone controller I'll buy that too.
I want that white Xbox One controller real bad.
I would instantly buy a second xbox one if they make a white version
The amount of agrees is too damn high. How much time do people really spend just marvelling at the colour of look of their console. I pretty much appreciate the design when I take it out of the box, caress it a bit, then put it in the entertainment centre and forget about it. I appreciate size more than anything.
That's understandable but...I actually liked the white version more than the black version when it was first revealed....I want a second xbox one for my bedroom and if the white one is released I'll buy it
I could care less what color the console is, but I'll probably buy the white Xbox one controller.
you could care less. But you aren't ?
I want one with a Sunset Overdrive decal on it. I wouldn't be able to resist.
An orange Xbox One with mild branding would be sweet.
Agreed. Actually, just give me one with Ted Price's face on it.
The white Xbox One looks nice. I'd trade my 2nd unit towards it in a heartbeat.
White Xbox One Forza Horizon 2 Bundle this September. Otherwise I'll buy the White X1 stand alone with a copy of Forza Horizon 2. I have a white Samsung 32', they'll look mighty purdy together ;)
And this is what the holidays are about. Saving and spending money. There are a lot of games coming out this fall. November and October could leave you very twisted for Christmas. Great time to be a gamer. Loads and loads of games to play in the coming months.
I dunno. A Halo bundle would do well with those who haven't jumped in since the 180's
What's up with the white xbox but no white Kinect damn man someone's racist!
White is right
Like the white version.didn't realization the disk drive was on the opposite side
The white Xbox one in the pic is just flip around like a mirror pic... if you look at in close you will see that the logos are backwards .... So it will look like the black one with the disk tray on the left.... I don't know why they used a flip mirror pic on this article ..... Any way back to the article .... IMO ... I think a white Xbox one Bundle with Halo MCC would be better and sell more units.... But either way I would trade my black one for it in a heart beat ... This way it would match the white PS4 that I 'm trading my black PS4 for.....
Say what you want about it but I love the Xbox One in this color. I think it will look perfect next to my black PS4. Get some ebony n ivory vibes going on...yup.
Microsoft couldn't beat Sony for March with the Titanfall bundle. I don't think this bundle will be the one to turn the tide.
