An Assassin's Creed Origins Xbox One S bundle will be made available on the game's release day, Mircosoft announced today.
Fantastic entry into the Xbox 4K family. This bundle is great.
At $349 it's not very great. It's also going to be a tough sell.
There is actually be a Shadow of War bundle. Is this still launching?
The CoD PS4 bundle is a far better deal; you get a unique PS4 console + the game, at $300. I thoroughly believe that is going to sell far more than this bundle.
Clearly a cod bundle will sell better since it’s a far bigger ip, but thanks, captain obvious
Lol game doesn't even reach 1080p on it
lol Since when did the S run games in 4K? Not even the X can run this game at native 4K.
The S probably doesn't even run this in 1080p since it hasn't run any previous AssCreed title in 1080p.
The S doesn't although it can output a 4K signal for your TV. Game still renders at whatever internally but in fairness the upscale is quite good. My S looks great on my 55 Samsung. Can't wait for the X.
Almost, Microsoft, almost. Two hundred and fifty USD is where a lot of potential customers would be at for this. Considering mainly only gamers either without a gaming system, or with a PlayStation 4 would be interested. The former would likely rather pickup a bundle like the Uncharted 4: A Thief's End PlayStation 4 combo for two hundred eighty to three hundred USD. While the latter would simply buy Origins on PS4. Almost, but still so far away...
argos is selling an xbox-s for 239 euro with forza horizon 3 and forza 7
Xenophon_York---yeah because everyone wants to play uncharted right? let me say this no everyone has different taste in games why try to push someone to buy something they have no interest in I own a PS4 pro but I'm sure Uncharted isn't on my list of games because you know I don't play brain dead cover based uninspired quick time movie based shooter I could give one sh--t if it has a decent story which is debatable at best so if a person likes a game like a--screed insert number then let them buy it.

LOL. Thanks for the recognition.
You got it brother. 👍
You guys....get a room
This is the first assassins creed to get my attention in years. I will pick it up on the x when it releases.
Ironically, this game is still going to sell significantly better on PS4, while the Destiny 2, CoD, and BF2 PS4 bundles are going to decimate this one.
Maybe, but i suspect ps4 owners who might be buying the x will choose that version this time. Typically multiplatform gamers like myself would choose a ps4 for games like this, but this might start changing once x releases.
lol That's really overestimating how many gamers care about the X. I give it until January before it's sales completely flatline like Xbone did this year, and it goes back to selling less than 100K per month in the US.
@Dial His overestimating versus your underestimating m8. But yeh, doom and gloom & whatnot.
@Black I'm not underestimating, I'm just being a realist. X is going to have strong initial sales, just like the Pro, for all those looking for a premium model, but it's baseline sales after launch will be lower than the Xbone S's. That's how this is intended to work. No $500 console is going to sell well for long, without strong first party software. It's never worked like that. The majority of console gamers choose console for price convenience. If it was power had that much of an effect, far fewer people would've bought the vanilla Xbone over PS4, Switch wouldn't be one of the hottest products on the market, and we'd all be playing PC. Yeah, for $500, X hardware is great, but so is PS4 Pro at $400. The biggest difference that Sony has the exclusive software to back its console up in the long run.
@DialgaMarine "lol That's really overestimating how many gamers care about the X. I give it until January before it's sales completely flatline like Xbone did this year," This big difference between this year and next year, Xbox had one main Triple AAA game with smaller fillers in the first half. Next year, Xbox will offer 3-6 games on or around the first half of the year with games like Crackdown 3, State of Decay 2, Sea of Thieves, Black Desert Online, Ashen, Darwin, The last night, Deep Rock Galactic. This does not include the third party marketing deals they have with Metro Exodus, Code Vein, Anthem, Dragon Ball Z. So next year is going to be big on Xbox One S and Xbox One x.. This does not include another jaggernaut in the first half Red Dead Redemption which will look fantastic on the Xbox One X and the latter half of the year with Big titles like Halo 6, Ori and the Blind Forest and Forza Horizon 4.
I have no idea if the x will sell well past this year. But it is selling reasonably well for its launch in November. It is these people that will be looking to buy games that showcase its power. With this in mind games releasing up until christmas, with 4k enhancements, will sell better than they otherwise would on an xbox console.
