Gears of War Ultimate Edition will be bundled with Xbox One beginning Aug 25, 2015

If you've been holding out on purchasing an Xbox One, Microsoft has a pretty great deal lined up for the back half of 2015.

During a panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Gears of War co-creator Rod Fergusson announced that the upcoming Gears of War Ultimate Edition, a remake of the first Gears game, will be bundled with Xbox One systems. The bundle will begin appearing in stores on Aug 25, the same day that the new game launches.

The story is too old to be commented.

Yep exactly what I was thinking.

Hope it's included in all their bundles which will likely be coming out for the holidays. I'm planning on getting a X1 sometime around then. I feel there are enough games to hold my interest, and GeOW I did enjoy on the PC, although never got to play the ones after the first.

Hoping for some really good bundles this year like last year. If I can get a few good games with the system, will work out nicely.:)

Well turns out this is just a limited time bundle while supplie last at select retailers. This headline made it sound like this was going to be a of being a standard bundle.

a slim is not coming no time soon...... i listened to so many podcast predicting a slim model. A slim model of the xbox one wont come soon mainly because the xbox one is designed to be on for 10 years straight with out cooling issues. Dont think they are going to go out and make something smaller and risk those issues when the box they have now does the job perfectly. A remodel is 2-3 years off atleast.
