All new Xbox One bundles announced at Gamescom

A look at four new Xbox One bundles revealed by Microsoft during Gamescom 2018.

Last month, Microsoft announced plans to reveal “new Xbox hardware and accessories” at Gamescom 2018. Gamers speculated the likelihood of Microsoft revealing the next Xbox console, Project Scarlet. However, Microsoft was quick to clarify their announcement, saying they’d be showing “new Xbox One bundles and accessories” instead of hardware.

True to their word, several new Xbox One bundles were showcased at this year’s Gamescom. The bundles include some of the most anticipated game releases of 2018 including Fallout 76, Battlefield V, and Forza Horizon 4. Additionally, Microsoft noted that all of these bundles are currently available for pre-order at both the Microsoft Store, and select retailers.

If you’re in the market for a new Xbox One and are considering one of the new bundles shown at Gamescom, you may be confused as to which bundle is the best. Are there differences in price or contents? To help answer these questions and clarify the minor differences between each bundle, we decided to put together a quick recap of all the Xbox One bundles announced at Gamescom.
