With the Xbox One X having released right at the perfect time as we move closer to the holiday season, one would think that Microsoft would capitalize on the option of bundling a game or extra controller with souped-up console. Unfortunately, it seems that this won’t be the case as Aaron Greenberg, head of marketing at Microsoft’s Xbox division has confirmed via Twitter.
Twitter user Nomorepony posed the question:
“Are there going to be Xbox one X bundles already released games like Dishonored 2, rime or new games like Destiny 2 and LA Noir this black Friday?”
Greenberg responded, stating that the company had no plans on releasing any bundles.
Financially speaking, the Xbox One X is a pretty expensive console as is – bundling the device with another controller or extra games may not work as gamers may find the extra item a little too big for their budget. That or perhaps Microsoft just isn’t planning on releasing a special edition console this year. Perhaps in 2018 there may be a change?
In other Xbox One X news, The Evil Within 2 has just received an Xbox One X patch, buffing the game on Xbox One X and PS4.
For the PS4, players will now be able to play the title in 1260P and Xbox One X at 1800P. Both consoles also find themselves with upped framerates which is pretty cool if you are one for a smoother experience.’
