Xbox One returns to Best Buy with five new holiday bundles

The Xbox One continues to sell in big numbers, as Microsoft reminded us earlier this week, and you’ll be able to nab one in time for December 24 – that’s Christmas Eve in certain circles – as part of one of Best Buy’s five new bundles, all of which are available to purchase on the retailer’s website. It doesn’t appear to be possible to purchase the $499.99 console on its own at this point, but the bundles – which start as low as $529.99 – all appear to be available for delivery by December 24. That’s more than can be said for the PlayStation 4 bundles.

The $530 bundle packs the console along with a one-year Xbox Live Gold subscription, and it may be the best deal of the bunch given the $50 price tag that one year of Xbox Live Gold typically carries. Two $560 bundles include either an extra controller or a copy of Call of Duty: Ghosts with your console, depending on which you choose. The step up from there to the $590 bundle includes an extra controller and a 12-month Xbox Live Gold subscription. Finally, the $650 “Cadillac” edition (our nickname, not Best Buy’s) includes a controller, a 12-month Xbox Live Gold subscription, and a copy of Call of Duty: Ghosts.

Sorry, Battlefield fans. You’re stuck with a broken game and nothing to play it on.
