Microsoft is launching the Xbox One Titanfall bundle for $499 on March 11 in the U.S.
Microsoft has launched a new bundle that includes the Xbox One console and Titanfall for $499, which is the original asking price of the console.
With this new bundle, gamers can also get one month of free Xbox Live Gold membership. This is in addition to the standard Xbox One packaging which includes the Kinect Sensor, the headset and the controller. This is certainly a neat way to lure in Xbox fans who have held up their console purchase until now. UK customers will be particularly excited to know that Microsoft has dropped the pricing of the console to just £399 now, accompanied by the Titanfall bundle.
Fans will have to wait until the 11th of March to get the Titanfall bundle in the U.S. while the UK will get it the next day on the 12th. So there’s still some waiting to do if you want to get this fancy new Xbox One bundle. The Corporate VP of Marketing, Business and Strategy for the Xbox division, Yusuf Mehdi, said the following announcing its release: “For those of you who are already fans of Xbox One, we hope this will encourage more of your friends to join you on day one for Titanfall on Xbox One. If you’ve been waiting for the biggest game of the generation before purchasing your Xbox One, this special, limited time offer is perfect for you.”
With the PlayStation 4 reportedly outselling Xbox One in several markets of the world, this new launch could turn things in Microsoft’s favor. Existing Xbox One users can get the Titanfall game separately for a hefty $59.99 starting from March 11 and 12 in the U.S. and the UK respectively.
