It was a busy morning for Microsoft yesterday, as they announced several key hardware products at their press event. Here’s a quick recap from my point of view.
- Now joining the Limited Edition Forza Motorsport 6 bundle is the upcoming Limited Edition Halo 5: Guardians Bundle with a downloadable copy of the game, a custom Spartan-themed metal case, matching custom metal controller, and 1 TB of storage. The listed release date is October 20, and it’s priced at $499.
- Windows 10 will be coming to Xbox One “this holiday season”, nothing more specific yet.
- A new high-performance Elite Gaming Controller coming in “October 2016” and priced at $199.99.
