Re: New XB1 Bundles for Madden and Sunset Overdriv
Date: 8/5/14 7:26 pm

: I don't necessarily disagree, but I'm trying to work through the economics
: here.

: The goal of the Madden bundle is to sell XB1 consoles. Madden is one of the
: best-selling video games every year, and this year in particular there
: will be many sports fans buying a new next-gen console. Microsoft is
: giving EA a big pile of money to be able to offer Madden for free with the
: console. They did the same thing with Titanfall earlier this year when it
: was included as the free game.

: Is that different than the MCC? Microsoft's number one goal right now is to
: get as many XB1s into homes as possible. Lots of people will buy an XB1
: just to play the MCC, but even more will buy one if they get the year's
: top XB1 title for free with the purchase of a new console.

Obviously getting the game for free with a new console would be great for me. But for $60 I can't really complain either way, and since the game will sell on its own and will sell consoles, I don't think it's smart business for Microsoft to leave money on the table.

But I do want a white Xbox, even if it's not as snazzy as the dev ones. So depending on the SKUs I might just get this bundle and then pick up MCC, since I was planning on getting Sunset Overdrive.

If they have a Halo bundle that looks even nicer, we'll see... I'm guessing the news of this though means we could be waiting another month or two to find out if that's in the cards?
