Xbox One S in Australia: four new bundles, two new colours


Microsoft has announced four new Xbox One S bundles, with "Deep Blue" and "Storm Grey" the new Xbox One S colours to tempt you into upgrading.

Proudly boasting of "the biggest games line-up in Xbox history", Microsoft unsurprisingly wants you to buy an Xbox One S console.

For those needing a refresher, the Xbox One S includes support for HDR gaming (providing you have a television capable of display HDR colour), 4K streaming, a built-in power supply and 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray support, among other features, alongside "a console 40% smaller than the original Xbox One".

The new bundles available are listed below:

  • Xbox One S Gears of War 4 Special Edition 500GB Bundle in Deep Blue – available 1 Nov exclusively at Microsoft Store and EB Games for RRP $399
  • Xbox One S Gears of War 4 1TB Bundle – available 11 Oct at Microsoft Store and selected retailers from RRP $499
  • Xbox One S Battlefield 1 Special Edition 500GB Bundle in Storm Grey – available 1 Nov exclusively at JB Hi-Fi and Microsoft Store for RRP $399
  • Xbox One S Minecraft Favourites 500GB Bundle – available 1 Nov at Microsoft Store and selected retailers for RRP $399

We are told that "all four bundles come complete with the fan-favourite Xbox One S console and the new Xbox Wireless Controller, in addition to digital download codes for the game inspiring the bundle. The Minecraft Bundle also comes with the Minecraft Xbox One Favourites and Builder’s Packs".

Jeremy Hinton, Xbox Business lead at Microsoft Australia, said: “Xbox One S offers gamers more value and more choice than ever before – not only in accessing the biggest exclusive games line up in Xbox history, but also through the growing library of backwards compatible Xbox 360 games.

“We’re receiving great feedback from Aussie gamers around the country for both the design and the features of Xbox One S, and with the launch of the critically-acclaimed, Australia-set Forza Horizon 3, Gears of War 4 and Battlefield 1, there’s never been a better time to own an Xbox One.”
