Microsoft today announced a special Titanfall Xbox One bundle, available from 13 March alongside Respawn's new multiplayer shooter.

The special bundle was announced today by Yusuf Mehdi, Xbox's Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer, in an email to the press.

The bundle contains the following:

Download code for a digital copy of “Titanfall”
Standard Xbox One console and Kinect sensor

One month Xbox Live Gold membership

Source: http://stevivor.com/2014/02/microsof....5o3AZvxR.dpuf

Seems it will be officially announced tomorrow according to this site.

Edit: They list the price as $599.00 AUD and more information will be posted here: http://www.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-one/c...tanfall-bundle tomorrow.

If this goes for 500$ they might win some souls.

Do not forget most consumers have no idea about the whole 1080 / 60fps debacle that is PS4 vs X1 is at the moment.

If Titanfall is indeed the ''COD killer'' than X1 might be ok

They made so many of these Standard controllers; they're going to get rid of it somehow!

Honestly, this would make the value of the overall package less to me.

Im sure Titanfall will be fun, does not mean I want to hold a themed controller for all the games I play.

Digital is the way to go on Xbox One , it annoys the fuck out of me to change discs
They only have to find solutions for reasonable pricing and more space

I'm not saying the convenience of digital is a downside, I'm saying that it sucks not to receive a physical copy when you're buying a cool bundle, but we both know why they went this way with it.

EDIT: Okay yeah the omission of the Titanfall controller is also mindboggling. Whatevs. Hope this works well for MS because Titanfall is great.

Yep and now I'm holding out hope the H2A announcement time frame was true as well as that would be this week or next week.

He also said there was a Titanfall Edition XBO. This appears to not be that. Unless that was an entirely separate thing he was talking about.

Fixed.

The bundle is smart, but seems very uninspired. Microsoft should've taken the extra 5 minutes to make every special edition Xbox One have a unique achievement for owning it.

I don't think most consumers are THAT ignorant.
I could be wrong though.

I don't think it's that big of a deal to most people. The price is a much bigger factor as to why the PS4 is outselling it.

Hardly surprising that the box art would be similar to all the other titanfall art we have seen in the past year though is it?

This bundle is just a redesigned box then? There's a battlefield bundle for 499 already so this isn't really mind blowing. Unless it's 449, then that's something.

I can see that there are often advantages in buying digital (such as pricing) but I can't see any specific advantage in this case. I would rather just have a physical copy here, and that would be available to me just as readily as a digital copy.

Excess stock of consoles. Why make more when you're sitting on unsold units?
