Xbox One 500GB Console with Kinect 3 Game Bundle news

500GB & $499.99.

Like some kind of mini wayback machine, Microsoft will offer a new Xbox One console bundle that pairs the 500GB console with a Kinect module for $499.99. Unlike the original 2013 offering, this bundle includes the new Xbox One controller as well as three Kinect centric games, 'Dance Central Spotlight,' 'Kinect Sports Rivals,' and 'Zoo Tycoon,' which are included as downloads.

This bundle follows three others announced this week. There was the 'Rise of the Tomb Raider' two game Xbox One bundle (see here), the 36 game Xbox One 1TB Holiday bundle (see here),  and the Xbox One The LEGO Movie Bundle (see here).

Xbox One + Kinect Bundle with 3 games

Personally, I'm surprised at the pricing of this bundle, which includes a peripheral that I keep thinking I should disconnect and that people usual describe as a way to add voice control to the Xbox One, which seems like could be done with any mic. Still, for anyone interested in Kinect gaming, this bundle is one to watch. The bundle has a release date of October 27th. Order here.
