Announced at Gamescom yesterday, the limited edition custom Xbox One Halo 5 themed console is now available for pre-order. Releasing on October 20th, a week before the Halo 5 release, this bundle features a $499 price tag.
It slightly is for sure. $450 would have been a better price as it comes with the Halo 5 LE version of the game. Still going to sell like crazy due to it being such a good looking console and it's Halo.
I know a lot of people are also expecting Microsoft to prepare another price cut in response to Sony's likely upcoming first price drop. This bundle probably means there's no more XB1 price drops any time soon. Also something I forgot to mention, there's a also a fairly custom Blue Forza 6 Limited Edition with 1TB coming this year at $399. There's definitely a a bit of price gouging here because of the Halo name IMO. @TheGreatGamer -They could probably scrape by with no price but if Sony is smart they'll do at least a $50 drop in price. @TheGreatGamer2 -Yeah its #2 on Amazon right now but that's because when something because available is shoots straight to the top fairly quickly. I'm not saying the console won't sell, I'm saying it won't really turn the tide against the PS4 at that price.
Is it likely though? Sony's ps4 is selling well enough for them not to have to drop the price. I don't see it happening this year.
dont worry, u will prolly be able to buy x1+halo 5+some bonus for ~300$
yes should have been 399 to really make an impact. but 449 would have been alright too 499 in my humble opinion is a little high
Put simply, no. The bundle comes with a custom spartan locke 1tb xb1 and controller. Halo 5 guardians and the limited edition items and the standard chat headset. Last time I checked, it was #2 on Amazon already. Great value for such a sweet looking custom console
Horrible value lol for $500 you can pick up the forza bundle & a handful of X1 games . The system looks cool but nothing shocking . Halo or not .
499 dollars was too much when i first heard the price. On Amazon the console contents include a uniquely designed Spartan themed Steel Book containing a full game download of Halo 5: Guardians, Warzone REQ Bundle, FOTUS-class armor and multiplayer emblem. Features a Guardian model by Metal Earth, Halo: The Fall of Reach - Animated Series, and Spartan Locke's Classified Orders. I guess this has to factored in to the price the Forza console bundle had nothing extra.
Yes, but it looks great.
Kinect is dead stupid title
Weird. They are still selling the Kinect bundle...
Price of 1TB Xbox One + MCC/Forza 6/Madden 16 = $399.99 USD Price of Halo 5 Limited Edition = $99.99 USD Which comes up to ~$500. However, the games that come bundled with the standard 1TB console are each worth $60, so if we replace said $60 with the price of H5GLE (~$100), the total comes up to $440... far less than the actual price point of $500. So yes, the bundle is overpriced. But then again, the console is custom, so the true cost of the bundle is a little vague. I don't think a few custom sounds and console/controller paint justifies the additional $60 though.
500 dollars for an Xbox One is way overpriced. Might as well just get the MCC bundle for 350 and use the rest of the money for XBL and more games.
It's because it got LE what about for the people who didn't care about LE?
For me, it was, since I just pre-ordered it!
$300 would be perfect...but $350 would've been more realistic
So...you want a 1TB xbox that sells for $350 alone, and with Halo 5 LE included, which sells for $100, and you want it to cost $100-50 less than total value? K.
no, I don't want one
XBOX fans will pay anyway.
Swapping my Forza 6 bundle for this now it just has to be done.
One sexy looking console
