$399 White Xbox One With Sunset Overdrive Revealed at Gamescom

Includes a digital copy of the game, matching white wireless controller, and various in-game items.

The Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare 1TB Xbox One bundle was not the only system bundle Microsoft announced today. Also during Microsoft's Gamescom briefing, Insomniac Games CEO Ted Price officially unveiled the $399 Xbox One Sunset Overdrive bundle that includes a digital copy of the game, a special white system, a matching wireless controller, and various Day One edition in-game items.

Outside of the United States, the Sunset Overdrive Xbox One bundle will sell for £349.99/€399.99. It launches October 28 alongside Sunset Overdrive, and is available for preorder today. White Xbox One systems were previously only available to Microsoft employees.

Sunset Overdrive is, of course, exclusive to Xbox One. For more on Microsoft's Gamescom showing, check out a recap of our liveblog.

I am PS4 owner since it launched but since Dead Rising 3 I have wanted an Xbox One. I know it's coming out on PC. So I was quite happy not to have to get an Xbox One just for that one game but then Sunset Overdrive comes along and i just love it, the way it looks and how you can customize your characters.  I am not sure which one sealed the deal for me, the game or the white console. I think probably the game.  As soon as i saw the trailer for Sunset Overdrive, took me about twenty minutes to decide to pre-order it. Now I just have to wait until 31st October.

I kinda like the idea of the Sunset overdrive White Xbox one bundle for $400.00 which is a good deal. You get a console and a sort of Pack in Game. There is no actually game but a digital code for the game from the Xbox live digital storefront.

But for $100.00 more the Call of Duty Advanced Warfare Xbox one bundle is very tempting. A 1TB HDD is worth the extra 100.00 since Xbox one HDD's are not user upgradable. 1TB of HDD space is important. It is surprising just how fast 500GB of space gets eaten up. I have a PS4 and only have 31GB of space left. I only use my console for gaming. So no movies/Television, Music is on the HDD.

So the Call of duty Xbox one may be a better deal.

White PS4 bundled with Destiny = $450

PS4 with Destiny seperately = $460

Sony is charging us for the game in the bundle. You're only saving $10!

Meanwhile, Microsoft is including Sunset Overdrive for free with the white Xbox One.

Someone said Sony was in deep shhh because of the white Xbox bundle & COD bundle. Not a fanboy but that sound dumber than having a bag of nickles at an arcade machine Lmao.

I've always thought the white edition looked cool, but it makes no difference to how the games actually run, so it's no big deal that mine is black...damn it.

I would have loved this bundle if it was available in black as well.

I really wish they would've announced a Halo Edition console, but I guess they're saving it for Halo 5. I'll have to dive into the next generation of gaming w/ the Sunset Overdrive bundle to hold me over.

Why not sell the actual real game instead of the digital garbage in the bundle?

i hope they eventually release the white system as a regular option just like the playstation white with kinect. at the moment i dont have the cash and more importantly i dont have much care for sunset overdrive...also i couldnt care less about digital. still a smarter choice than the COD edition...youre paying 100 bucks extra for the digital version of the game, design and the hdd.....bullshit. i can get a laptop 1tb hdd for 20 bucks more than a 500gb hdd.

If this was physical I would have bought this in a second. But with a digital only copy, might as well not include it at all. God dam this trend of including a digital copy of a game. Put in a physical copy.


Maybe a quantum break bundle comes out later.

I cannot wait for this! Will look totally tits next to my white PS4 and gaming rig. :D Sunset Overdrive is going to be amazing. Plus, basicall you're getting the Xbox One for $340. Which is $10 under the price point I think the Xbox should be at anyways. Win Win.

I will say this. That is a VERY perdy Xbox One. because the 360 was white I would even daresay it's a classic.

However.....

it FEELS like a Destiny PS4 bundle rip off and makes Microsoft look cheap and uninventive. 

Why not a black and neon green console with an actual light up Xbox symbols?

@sackgirl102  I'm still trying to figure out what is buzz/ big deal about 'Sunset Overdrive'. I mean, the skating on shoes feature kinda reminds me of the 'Jet Set Radio'; I've watched the early reviews on YouTube and I'm still not 100% sold - however, I do like the fact that it comes in a 'white' Xbox One bundle. Then again, the COD: Advance Warfare is lookin' pretty enticing with it's 1TB hard drive. Any how, these two packages STILL suck without Kinect ><

Wow you sound like me. I got a PS4 as well and have been wanting an Xbox One sspecifically for Dead Rising 3 then Microsoft goes and shows off Sunsrt Overdrive and the bundle. After that I promptly went to a GameStop to pre-order lol I was sold. Hey what's your gamertag maybe I'll catch you online?

@Megavideogamer I know what you mean bro. The 100gig hard-drive is a great sell. But not many people 'like' the look of a grey console. I guess it all comes down to what type of games the player like. If they're a COD fan, then for sure the COD console is a better buy. But if the player prefers white aesthetic to their Xbox, then the 'Sunset Overdrive' probably holds a better value for them. By the way, what do you think of the Sunset Overdrive game? Is it a good buy?

@iambattlecry The funny thing about your post is that there are plenty of *nickel arcades. Your joke doesn't really make sense.

@bunchanumbers Yep.  So much for Sony won.  They sprinted out the gate, played on low-info gamers and have now petered and are focusing on "TV".  Microsoft stumbled, but recovered, has improved everything and in under a year are looking to take back a TON of momentum.  Generation will end up like Gen 7... 50/50

Stop complaining. People have been buying digital games for years. Look at how popular Steam is.

No one complains about digital movies and music on Netflix, Spotify, iTunes, etc.

@Martyr77  digital garbage doesn't make the price of the xbox go up any so what is the problem with a free game? If u really want the Disc just spend the 60 your saving on the bundle and get the disc for your collection?

emperor_lrrr
emperor_lrrr

@divinejester  lol yeah just don't include the free game that I want to play. Or if u hate it that much just don't install it and spend the sixty you could save on the disc version so u can trade it back for an fraction of the cost.

@divinejester dude, digital is way better… all my X1 disc games sit there in the "update" queue and won't get outta there until I finally insert the darn disc… digital downloaded games are always automatically updated… much faster and hassle free… and I don't have to go over the console to switch discs… easier, faster… 

time to put those extra TBs to some good use...

@Uncle_Rell You don't sound like a fanboy because a fanboy would not even consider getting  the competing system under no circumstances. You sound like a gamer that likes the PS4 a little more than the Xbox one. You see that both systems have worth and won't miss any great games that both will have.

@Kinguard73 The White Xbox One was given to the employees at MS that worked on xbox One back at launch.  So MS had the white console idea before Sony.....

@tendoboy1984  Digital sucks. People don't complain about services like ITunes because:


1. You can still create a physical disc

2. WAY cheaper than games so you don't lose much

@tmorri603 @Uncle_Rell Fanboy doesn't mean you immediately have to shove the other party off. I'm a PC fanboy. It's my platform of choice and if I had to choose one platform PC would be it. But I also own a PS4 and will be picking this up. 

What I think you're referring to is a hardcore delusional fanboy like the hordes that wander the comments section lol


divinejester

@Rushaoz @tmorri603 @Uncle_Rell No that would just make you a fan or a consumer at worse. A fanboy, a derogatory term is someone who would literally not buy the competing console no matter how much they liked it.
