New Xbox One Bundle Announced As Free Game Promotion Goes Live

Now Xbox chief Phil Spencer has assured fans that the Xbox one X pre-orders would start soon.

The news follows Microsoft's Q4 financial results, which showed that Xbox hardware revenue declined by 29%.

The bundle is already available for pre-order, and you can find it at several retailers, including Microsoft's own online store.

Back at E3 2016 Xbox took the stage to talk about an upgraded Xbox One and a sneak peek at the next gen Xbox One gaming system offering a multitude of capabilities such as true 4k resolution, 6 Teraflop GPU, and more. Almost all of the games shown at Microsoft's E3 2017 showcase featured gameplay on the console, with games ranging from Super Lucky's Tale to Assassin's Creed: Origins.

The first deal actually centers around an individual Xbox One S bundle. The news on this comes in by Major Nelson himself, who posted a list of all things Xbox One X at Gamescom 2017 on majornelson.com. This offer is available through Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, Target, GameStop, the Microsoft Store, and other retailers in the USA; it's unclear how long it will run for. The Microsoft Store now has a page for The Sims 4.

"The Sims 4" was even more poorly received by many fans due to the game's features controversy that was sparked only a few months before its release.

Further, the Xbox Games marketing head Aaron Greenberg stated that Xbox One X will have no exclusive titles similar to what PlayStation is doing with the PS4 and PS4 Pro. A Deluxe Party Edition is set to release three days earlier on November 14.

Is Xbox One X going to be a commercial failure?
