Choose How You Game with Four New Xbox One S Bundles

Microsoft will not offer a free Kinect adaptor with Xbox One X's launch. Unfortunately, Microsoft isn't including a stand with every Xbox One X. Also, the Xbox One X's dimensions are very different from the Xbox One S. You can't count on reusing an Xbox One S stand you already have. The giant of Redmond is well aware of this, launching a few months ago in France the service Xbox Design Lab, which allows everyone to customize the Xbox One with the colors and materials of his choice. But the One X's much vaunted CPU speed of "6 teraflops", which is faster than the PS4 Pro's 4.2 TF, will give the console a fighting chance. Perhaps the most versatile bundle of the bunch will be the Xbox One S Starter bundle that will include a 500GB console, along with a three-month subscription to Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass.

It is true, though, that other retailers are also offering the Xbox One X bundled with other games.

The Evil Within, the original game, was one of the many high-profile games back at the tail end of 2014 that were borderline unplayable due to apparently being rushed out to make dates, which temporarily blackened the name of the Assassin's Creed series and made The Evil Within get lower review scores than it could have on account of its technical issues. Amazon sells the Xbox One Kinect Adapter for $39.99. This adapter does not come standard with an Xbox One X purchase. Aaron Greenberg, Microsoft's head of marketing for Xbox games, confirmed the company had ended that program in late September on Twitter. The same offer will not be extended to buyers of the Xbox One X.

The Xbox One X connects to controllers using the same wireless technology and USB ports as older Xbox One consoles do. They will work with the new console, too. Hence, there is no denying that Curry's PC World pre-order deal is obviously more reasonable.
