Microsoft offering Xbox One bundle that features hybrid drive and US$150 controller

Peter Smith | Sept. 3, 2015
Earlier this week Microsoft announced a new Xbox One Elite Bundle that includes its upcoming Elite Wireless controller. If you haven't heard of it, the Elite controller is a $150 customizable controller that is overkill for most of us. With the bundle priced at $500 it didn't seem like enough of a deal to be worth posting about.

In either case you'll wind up with a 1 TB drive, 1 Elite Controller and 1 Standard Controller. The difference is having a hybrid drive vs having a game to play. If the biggest selling point of the hybrid drive is 20% faster boot times of an already fast-booting system...meh, personally I'd take the game. As we get closer to the launch of the system we might learn that it significantly improves other aspects of the system, in which case I reserve the right to change my recommendation.
