Game Idealist takes a look as to whether or not the Cirrus White Xbox One Special Edition Halo: The Master Chief Collection Bundle is worth purchasing.
Do you like Xbox? Do you like white? Do you like Halo? If you answered yes to one or more of these questions...
Assuming you don't already have one.
The only reason to buy it is because it's a white console, because the Halo: MCC bundle has been out for a while, and Wal-Mart has the exact same bundle plus and extra controller for the same price. On a side note, this is exactly why I believe one of the big booms for MS's E3 conference is the confirmation of the base model dropping to $299 permanently. These bundles are all going for $349 with games and extra controllers, so it only makes sense to drop the base model down to $299 aka Mass adoption price point for the Core gamer. Once again I think XBO is going to double it's sales this year and move 11m - 13m consoles.
I answered yes to 2nd question.
Then you need a new Xbox One, lol!
Cirrus White......what a way to describe an Xbox One...lol
Colored by the Cloud!
I hope it's not limited edition. They need to go back to white like the 360.
I just bought one as a second box for my girlfriend's house so I don't have to lug mine back and forth and increase my damage risk. They were back in stock at BB, and I used certs and a 10% off code to drop it $50. Woohoo!
With rumors of a Halo 5 edition X1 being announced at E3, I say wait first
Heck yeah it is. Best console ever.
You have an interesting definition of that word.
I know that they had the white SSOD bundle before but those sold out quickly. And Japan has had this white bundle for a while now. Could this be the japanese bundle repackaged (with a new plug) cause they are not selling or are these brand new or a combination of the two?
