Microsoft has announced the new Xbox One Elite Bundle today. This will pair a matte finish for the console with a 1TB hybrid drive as well as the Xbox One Elite wireless controller.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen an Xbox with a 1TB drive, but this iteration is the first to make that a hybrid unit – which stores frequently accessed files on a solid state partition. Thus, waking up from energy-saving mode is going to be 20% faster.
On the other hand, the Elite wireless controller comes with hair trigger locks, interchangeable paddles, fully customizable features, as well as a “high-performance construction”.
The Xbox One Elite Bundle will be out worldwide in November for $499.99. In the US it will be exclusive to GameStop and Microsoft Stores throughout November, and pre-orders are already live.
The new Xbox One Special Edition Lunar White wireless controller includes all of the features of the updated standard wireless controller, but it’s white. With a touch of gold. It’s also apparently got “improved grip texture for more control and comfort”. GameStop will be exclusively selling this accessory starting in late September. It will cost $64.99.
