Dell has published a website that offers a sneak peak at it’s Black Friday deals this year. Among its excellent offerings is a leaked the Xbox One bundle Black Friday price of only $299. And, moreover, the offer includes Fallout 4, Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, and an extra controller for only $299.
Earlier in October Sony dropped the price of the PS4 for its first time since its launch in 2013. This, along with its already established momentum, has placed a huge amount of pressure on Microsoft ahead of the holiday shopping season. But with an arey of new generation products, Microsoft would also be able to offer lower than the last year prices for its gaming console bundles, along other already established products.
The current Xbox One bundles typically include the console along with one game for $349, making this a significant deal that goes well beyond the $329 Assassin’s Creed Unity bundle that Microsoft offered last year.
Fallout 4 is expected to be one of the three biggest video game releases of 2015, with analysts projecting sales beyond 10 million to end the year. Microsoft has managed to strike an exclusive marketing deal with Bethesda for the game, along with working to get console-first mod support on the Xbox One. This will mark the first time that a Bethesda game has offered mods outside of PC, making it a special occasion that Microsoft hopes will draw attention.
Microsoft has a large number of bundles that it’ll offer during the holidays, with its Fallout 4 and Rise of the Tomb Raider packages garnering the most attention. It is expected that consumers will have a variety of choices for what they want included with their console once Black Friday rolls around.
If this bundle could be taken as an indication, this year’s Xbox One Bundles Black Friday prices will be more attractive than ever for gamers and parents.
