New Xbox One bundle includes Gears of War, Rare Replay, and Ori for $399

Microsoft has announced the Xbox One 1TB Holiday Bundle includes a ton of games from the Gears of War franchise, Rare Replay, and Ori and the Blind Forest.

Hot on the heels of yesterday’s Rise of the Tomb Raider Xbox One bundle, Microsoft has revealed a new Xbox One 1TB Holiday Bundle that includes three games.

The Xbox One 1TB Holiday Bundle features a 1TB hard drive, an Xbox One Wireless Controller with 3.5mm headset jack, a full-game download code for Ori and the Blind Forest, a copy of Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, and a copy of Rare Replay. It should be noted Gears of War: Ultimate Edition comes with the entire Xbox 360 Gears of War collection that can be played through backwards compatibility, although that offer is only good through December 31, 2015.

The new Xbox One 1TB Holiday Bundle will be available starting in October for $399.

This is the second Xbox One bundle Microsoft has announced this week, with three more bundles expected to be revealed over the next few days. What games do you think will be getting the bundle treatment?

      Is there anyway to pre-order Halo 5 digitally with a $10 discount like you can with Best Buy for the physical copy?

      I haven't been keeping up- these bundles I've seen lately are without Kinect... Is Kinect essentially dead? I don't have an Xbox One yet and probably won't for another year or two. Just wondering what's been happening with that "accessory"

          Too bad. I was hoping its forced inclusion encouraged developers to make better use of it. No way that's happening now.

      Just ONE more thing Xbox, and you've got me. Give me a non-black console. PLEASE. I WANT TO BUY YOUR CONSOLE, but I'm picky. I want a 1TB XBOne, not black, with a game OR one of those fancy $150 controllers.

        The Forza one is blue.

          Yeah...and I almost bought it, but I hate those silly racing stripes on it (being super picky, I know). LOVED the white XBOne that came with Sunset Overdrive. Will probably buy the Halo5 XBOne if they don't announce something else this week.

        Pack in the OTA TV tuner, and I'd consider it.

          Actually, scratch that. The tuner needs to be built into the console, not a second-party dongle.

          How does that work?

            Dunno. I assume it would work as well as the tuner that is built-in to every television.
