What it means in a practical sense is that games may run smoother, achieving target frame rates more consistently, and offer a clutch of graphical improvements in lighting, texture and, of course, resolution. Or maybe it does; I don't know.
This week the folks at Microsoft have chose to reveal a few more Xbox One S bundles before they start in HARD with promotion of their Xbox One X. Not only was a Minecraft bundle revealed, but a Rocket League bundle, and a Halo bundle as well.
As you may remember, back in August 2016, Microsoft launched the Xbox One S, the slimmer and improved version of the Xbox One. Yep, games. Moreover, all of these bundles offer limited-time free access to the new Xbox Game Pass subscription service.
It is true, though, that other retailers are also offering the Xbox One X bundled with other games.
In terms of content, each bundle is fairly self-explanatory about what is included. Xbox One X owners looking to use Kinect can still purchase the adapter, which retails for R869. This is the only variant that does not come with any games. Hence, 3 months of choosing from a library of over 100 games.
With the launch of Xbox One S, Microsoft did away with the requisite Kinect port on the back of each console, rendering the peripheral useless without an adapter.
According to reports, Curry's PC World now offers the Xbox One X bundled with "Forza Motorsport 7", "Halo 5 Guardians", and "Quantum Break" in its pre-order deal. We have The Master Chief Collection right alongside Halo 5: Guardians. This will get you a 500GB console and controller plus three months of Xbox Live Gold and three months of Xbox Game Pass.
