Microsoft has announced that they are offering one free game with every Xbox One S console purchased this week.
The offer period is really short but for any of you who are planning to get the slimmer console which has HDR and 4K support this is easily one of the best bundles to go for. With the Xbox One S bundle, players have the choice to choose between Destiny, FIFA 17, NBA 2K17 and Forza Horizon 3.
Apart from these games, it also includes a copy of Minecraft along with 13 different content packs. The entire package costs just $299 making it an offer that you can’t resist. The deal is available only with select retailers in the United States. Similar offers should be available in all regions where the Xbox One S console is getting launched.
The original Xbox One console was much bigger and was criticized for being a bulky VCR. Microsoft’s newest console is extremely stylish and thin besides packing some great power on the inside. It is capable of playing 4K ultra HD blurays, supports 4K video streaming on Netflix among other channels and uses high dynamic range for improved graphical fidelity on all supported games.
Microsoft criticized Sony’s Playstation 4 not being able to play 4K blurays. Those who are ahead of the technology curve with a 4K television can comfortably go for the Xbox One console as it supports all videos in this UHD resolution. Games like Gears of War 4, Battlefield 1 and Madden NFL 17 are all made with HDR capabilities.
All these titles are getting launched on PCs which allows developers to optimize them for native 4K resolution. When they are creating games for one of the best gaming platforms, they obviously have great level of freedom to use best graphics. It should reflect in Xbox One S titles and soon Xbox Scorpio which is expected to be on par with high end computers will support native 4K gaming.
Sony has a lot to catch up in the next console generation with their Playstation 5 console. All major retailers house the Xbox One S bundle with Minecraft and another free game bundle including Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, Target and Microsoft Store. If you are planning to upgrade your machine or go for a new one to experience console gaming, this is a value added bundle with two excellent games that offer unlimited hours of fun.
