OXCGN: Walmart’s website recently listed (now removed) a new Xbox One console, only titled ‘Xbox One Elite Console’, priced at $499.00USD.
Been holding out for an Xbox One, the backwards compatibility news has got me over the line, but I'm curious to see what this bundle will be, hopefully a bigger HDD and a few games.
that's an easy one to make out , its an 500 gig xbox one with an elite gamers controller
$350 + $150 Makes sense to me.
The console + the elite controller + at least 1TB HDD and a game at $500 would be an awesome deal maybe the best out there.
No aceitman, Its a 1tb HD and an Elite controller. Common sense.
I'm gonna have to agree with the fellas above. MS is doing backward compatibility through software, like with Xbox 360, not through hardware. 1TB and an Elite controller makes the most sense.
It might be the 1TB w/ Elite controller. The bundle should offer a discount which would be $50 off control or X1. However you want to look at it.
Yup, most likely. They should throw in either Halo: MCC or make it a 1TB HDD with it. The Elite controller is already too expensive as it is.
Yeah, but unless it comes with the original controller, also, then it's more expensive. Maybe it comes with some other extras to make up for the price increase. We'll see.
its_JEFF Software - always, but they have hardware virtualization, the xbox 360 on xone is a virtual machine with hardware virtualization. theRell $350 + $150 Nah, if it is a bundle it should be cheaper than buying separately, my guess 1tb disk.
Hold till Black Friday dude, no matter how good some bundles, deals, etc may seem now, it'll be better then. For example, bundle plus games, plus giftcard. Same goes for peeps wanting a PS4, unless you just want it now.
Microsoft has been pushing big deals on xbones for awhile, so if you don't have one already I'd agree waiting for black friday if you can. Even without waiting for bf, you should be able to get some combination of $100 worth off or more on a bundle if you look around. Everywhere is doing some combination of free game, trade-in bonus, free gift card, etc.
The bad thing is bundles in Black Friday go by so fast.
It's a 1TB Xbox One with an Elite controller. It will have a 1 TB hard drive because you will not be getting the regular controller that normally comes with the $349.99 system. Good deal for the people that want the elite controller and are willing to pay $499.99 for the system, plus it will probably have a free game.
lol, so many disagree
that BC thing is a marketing ploy, only handful of games are available and they suffer from terrible performance (according to DF).
It's in beta right now. The official public release isn't until this holiday season so naturally the selection will be limited and possibly buggy.
It's really amusing to watch you trolls downplay BC using ONE game (Mass Effect) that OCCASIONALLY drops fps in a BETA feature that won't be out for months. Laff out loud.
Strange why they wouldn't announce it at E3 if it was something new!?!
Gamecom is a few weeks away
Gamescom is over a month and a half away. So, I agree, seems a bit surprising that we heard nothing about it last week.
Microsoft urgently needs a push in Europe more than the U.S.. They are desperately behind and it makes perfect sense they will use this bundle and other price reductions as advertising on Gamescom.
Apparently they've saved a bunch of their heavy-hitters for Gamescom... Gameplay reveals for Scalebound, Crackdown and ReCore are all but guaranteed, along with another Quantum Break demo/release date. I'm assuming this Elite Xbox comes with a 1Tb hard-drive, a pro controller and either Halo and/or Forza... I reckon they might also do a Tomb Raider/Fallout bundle, albiet with a regular controller. Spencer said they've got more 1st party games to announce, so who knows? Gamescom might be even better than E3.
I would say its the console with that elite controller. Theyre maybe not ready to announce it yet. Seeing as the controller costs $150 ahaha may as well get the console bundle with it.
Not exactly though,the 349$ bundle comes with a free controller a 64$ cost so unless it comes with one regular controller and 1 elite controller then yes, but if it only comes with one elite controller than ms is being slick and taking the cost of the regular controller for profit.which is a smack in the face to the Xbox community. But in time this will come out and we will see. But hopefully they put both types of controllers in the bundle.
Sounds like it could be a pretty good deal for people waiting for an Xbone. Wonder if it'll come with any games?
Probably not but for sure during the holidays.
Raising the price again Microsoft? When will you ever learn
It sounds like a bundle that feature a HDD.
A bundle that feature a HDD? Did you mean to say something else?
Wonder how the people who own Day One Edition consoles feel now?
Unless this was their first rodeo, day one adopters knew full well what risks they were taking in jumping in early. We're over a year and a half into this gen. Consoles are better off than most tech, like phones for instance, where a new model is released annually. It's not as though the older consoles are rendered unplayable. If you worry about price drops, you might as well wait until the end of it's life cycle, or you might run the risk of being one of the year 2 adopters who feels shafted by the year 4 guys who snagged one for $99 lol.
huh?...I had it since 3 mins after midnight, the day it launched. This console has been amazing imo, I swear to you if I had to do it all over again I wouldn't change a thing, sure is hell wouldn't wait this long if the console was $100 bucks today= you just cant put a value on having something you want badly as an early adopter, especially when it keeps getting better, then when you add that for me Forza5 brought some next gen driving fun out of the gate, DR3 was a no loading blast, Ryse was and still is a spectacle to look at and sorely underated in fighting mechanics, Kinect with the UI functionality brings X1 alive, the updates are ever evolving the console and Iam a part of that= nah bro, I wouldnt trade that experience so far for saving some cash. I never understand how some people get angry because someone got what they brought 2yrs ago cheaper??? You realize while they can certainly enjoy the games you already did its not the same thing, you were among and shared the experience with those who had the most passion for the games, the online, the "did you see/know that stories", the forums, the excitement of a fresh experience...now you are just playing to have some fun and thats fine too but its not the same.
Was that directed at me 4SH0w? I don't regret early adoption one bit, and my comment was meant to convey that I disagreed with what bondigamer was driving at lol.
@Kingdomcome247, No, not at all...it was directed at bondigamer. -My bad I forgot to put @bondigamer to avoid any confusion.
They should feel no different. Consoles get cheaper and new bundles/editions come as time goes on so if they're mad they should be mad at themselves. Anyway it's most likely the 1tb console(*$350) with elite controller($150) *value without a controller
I feel good. Bought the console day one with one game bundled and kinect for 489 bucks. I am playing X1 for almost two years now and the gaming value I seized from that is something I gladly endure compared to waiting two more years for a few bucks of price drop or some bundles. Early adopter is no risky business with consoles if you exchange gaming time into dollar value.
I feel like I've had a great time with the xb1 since day one... All this new stuff doesn't bother, why should it?
Agreed. Honestly, the new controller and 1tb hd i dont need. Heck I dont even have my kinect anymore. I pawned it off for gas money to get to work. Got $50. Funny i checked with Gamestop prior to the pawn shop. Gamestop are some greedy bastards they offered me $20 for my K2 sensor. Pffft?? But Y'all turn around an resell it for $110 used?!! Trifling GS.
pretty happy i got mine at a midnight launch and ive used it almost every day since, sure id like a bigger hdd but thats what externals are for, as for the controller i want it now.
Amazing, the amount of free games I have taken off Live alone has made up the difference in prices. Its been an awesome machine and its only getting better.
Sounds like the closest thing to a good idea to get the new Elite controller in as many consumer hands as possible
Sounds like it for the new buyers this would be good to do. For myself? I'll fork out the cash and buy the controller on its own. No need for this bundle.
I'm tossing up whether to get a second PS4 or X1 so I can multiplayer with my kids....a good Elite X1 bundle may just sway me to go X1.
If you already have a PS4, the choice should be very, very easy. Get an X1 and enjoy both sides.
I already have both, tossing up whether to buy a second X1 or PS4.
If this were indeed a 1TB Xbox One with an Elite Controller I'd been inclined to buy it just for the large HDD and that controller. But since I own an Xbox One I might just buy the controller on it's own. 500GB whilst not enough for me so far is perfect. Having a PS4 and playing most multi-plat games on that leaves my X1 for exclusives and the odd multi-plat game.
That elite controller is gonna sell like hotcakes .. Even if it is overpriced. Sadly The only way i get one is thru a black friday sale. Or if someone wants to chip in on it with me for my xmas gift..lol.. But if i luck up on one NOONE touches that $hit!! U hear me!!! Lol
My Brother in Law works for a big retail company, he manages the electronics department. He was out at e3 and told me last Thursday 6/18 that they are making an Xbox one Elite console that hasn't been revealed yet. He said that it comes with faster hard drives (maybe SSD's) he wasn't sure, and comes with the Elite controller as well.
A Halo-themed box with 1tb, Halo 5 and Halo MCC plus the elite controller, all for 499 would crush sales.
Still not done bad as an early adopter. XB1 Day One Edition included Kinect, Day One controller and unique Day One achievement - and also a full value digital game with Forza 5 or FIFA 15.
More than likely this will be a 500gb console with JUST an elite controller and a game...making this a 1tb would put it at $500 which i doubt they will do without a kinect inside, thus not making the bundle "elite".
Wonder what games it could be bundled with for $150-100 more than any other Xbox One console.
No game. 1tb HD and elite controller.
Great news for those fellow gamers who've been on the fence about getting the console.This is the best time to do so.Enjoy the good bundles and backwards compatibility!
