    Buying guide for Xbox One bundles, August 27, 2015

    This review is from: Xbox One 500GB Console – Gears of War: Ultimate Edition Bundle (Video Game)

    I wanted to create a guide to help those interested in purchasing an Xbox One, since there are so many bundles, and offers change constantly. I’ll attempt to keep this up to date as the bundles change. This is NOT a comparison to Playstation 4 or Wii U.

    A short list of features that may interest you, shared by all Xbox Ones (more details can be found in product descriptions and Microsoft sites) –

    HDMI pass through. You can hook up an HDMI device to the back of an Xbox One to view the content from that device without changing inputs or leaving the X1 interface. This allows for split screen viewing and if a cable box or the official TV tuner, you can view the channel guide, watch TV, and set recordings.

    It is backwards compatible with some Xbox 360 games. This is great for those with backlogs (like me…) or those who want to revisit finished games without having another console plugged into the wall/TV. In the fall, owners of publisher approved disc or digital 360 games will be able to play them emulated on the X1. Some X1 games also include their 360 precursors with purchase for play on the X1 in case you missed them. Rainbow Six Siege includes both R6 Vegas Xbox 360 games, for example. List of games and other info here -[…]

    It will stream content to Windows 10 devices.

    Xbox Live Gold now applies to households instead of individuals; meaning that multiple accounts on the same console can have access to the same features but have differing account restrictions (I.E. parental controls). So you can let your kids play Garden Warfare online, but not Gears of War.

    External USB 3.0 storage. This is great because, 1) you don’t need to open the console and replace a hard disc to add storage, just plug in and the X1 will format the drive, 2) even disc-based games have compulsory installs and can be upwards of 50GB each, eating storage space quickly, 3) external drives can be spacious and cheap, and last but not least, 4) USB 3.0 is actually faster than the internal hard disc interface. This means that a game on an external drive will load faster than one on the internal drive, usually by a significant amount.

    The bundles-

    The current bundles include a newer controller that has a standard 3.5mm audio jack built in and output both game and chat audio through it. Legacy consoles shouldn’t be expected to be widely available at the suggested price (and some I haven’t included, due to their rarity at this point). You may have better luck at other outlets finding the legacy consoles (Microsoft Store, Dell, various brick-and-mortar stores). There are no functional differences. All bundles include a controller, HDMI cable, chat headset (with exceptions), and a 14 day Xbox Live Gold trial membership (paid $60/year service to play online and download the Games with Gold, a monthly rotation of full games you’re free to download and keep (forever for 360 games and as long as you have Live Gold in active subscription for X1 games).

    Current bundles (with rating based on what you get for the money. Star and letter ratings are intended for the suggested price listed next to the bundle, not whatever current prices are.) –

    Amazon is presently offering a $30 gift card with all bundles, so be sure to select that product version (Microsoft Store is offering additional games and $75 gift card, FYI).

    Rainbow Six Siege 1TB bundle. $399. Includes console, new controller, disc version of the title game and downloads of the Rainbow Six Vegas Xbox 360 games, with a chat headset. A new class-based multiplayer shooter with the excellent tactical precursor campaigns. A good bundle. A- rating.

    Name your Game 500GB bundle. $349. Includes the console, new controller, a download of one of Forza 6, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Gears of War Ultimate, or Rare Replay, and no chat headset. The choice of games is nice and the selections are high-quality, but 500GB will fill very quickly at this point, and without a headset or bonus games, this is one of the lesser value bundles. B- rating.

    Xbox One Elite 1TB bundle. $499. Includes a console with a 1TB hybrid SSD and hard disc for quicker load times for the items you access the most and the Elite controller, which has replaceable/customizable sticks, buttons, and triggers for the professionals or tinkerers, and DOES include a chat headset with a matching black and silver color scheme. While the internal storage on this will be better than the standard HDDs in other X1s, the performance increase PROBABLY won’t match external USB3.0 drives, due to the continued use of the SATA interface. There’s little information about the size of the SSD partition and many hybrid drives don’t allow you to choose what content is on which partition. The elite controller has been released to wide acclaim (modifiable professional controllers can easily go for twice as much), but…

    The price for the system and the add on’s its totally worth it for sure, and love how you don’t need to hold anything when using the Kinnect.xbox-one-in-boxXbox One we picked out, came with a game, controllers, remote, Kinnect and some freebies inside the box. It took about an hour to hook up all the cords to the TV, sign up and sign in to the system to find all our 360 information into the new one. Once it was all hooked up an hour later, we were watching TV and Movies before we knew it. Since the Xbox one is part of our daily life for everything it’s on a lot during the day. We have Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, our TV all hooked up to our system, and only a touch of a remote and gets us to where we need to go. Of course we have found some bugs in the system, where it glitches, the Kinnect voice would random turn on, or would go to the main menu during a movie or TV show. But other than those little bugs the system is great, turns on fast, only sign in when you restart it, holds tons of movies, game achievements and memory. Love the turn off system after an hour of no use, so it saves power. The talk to the Xbox is still a bit buggy too, as it will send you on a chase before you get where you wanna go. Luckily we just turn off the kinnect and we are golden. We bought a lot of movies and games on the system, and love how we don’t need discs anymore so that’s a bonus, cause I hate a million discs lying around. Love how the box is all touch, and handles any types of fingers easy. I love the Xbox One, we used to do PlayStation but after they got hacked while back, and was offline for endless amount of months, we chucked that system to a friend. The system offers a wide collection of games for adults and kids. Right now Lego games and Skylanders are huge in our house, and we just bought the new skylander game that is coming out in Oct.
