Just before E3, Microsoft has released yet another Xbox One bundle. This time, the bundle includes a bigger hard drive (1TB compared to the previous 500GB size) and a free collection that I felt should have been the main bundle all along: The Master Chief Collection. No worries though, the new price for this bundle won’t be too high. Priced at $400, this ‘new’ Xbox One will become the standard. Mind you, this bundle will not include the lowly Kinect either. With this new bundle, the old 500GB model drops to $350 permanently. It’s not certain if that model will begin shipping the new controllers though.
Also, this new core bundle features a new and improved Xbox One controller. Gone are the need for the $20 adapters to connect a headset to the controller. Now, you just use a regular 3.5mm stereo headset jack. On top of that, you get improved sound for your headset and improved bumper button sensitivity.
This would explain the price drop of the sale of the existing ‘Day One’ style controllers from around $60 to $40 and less. For a few months now there were rumors of this bundle dropping due to the info that a new controller was on the way. A shiny new console configuration to go along with these new controllers only made since.
