    The latest console bundle from Microsoft is here, and it's quite the pack in.

    Launching later this year, Madden NFL 2016 will be available on PS4/XBONE/360/PS3 in late August.

    However, this latest bundle offers plenty of incentives for fans of EA's sports titles. Included in the Madden Xbox One bundle is:
    • A 1TB Xbox One Console
    • 1 Year of EA Access, EA's early access subscription service that allows gamers to play games like Madden or the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront, as much as weeks in advance of their respective release dates, and access to free titles such as Titanfall, Plants vs Zombies, and other sports titles.
    • The new model of Xbox One controller, with a stereo headset jack.
    • A digital copy of Madden NFL 2016
    All of this is offered at a $400 value, with double the storage, a year of early access to EA games, and essentially comes with not only a copy of Madden, but access to a library of triple A EA games such as Titanfall.

    The bundle will be available on August 18th, a week before Madden NFL 16 actually launches. However with your free EA access, you'll get to play the game a week before everyone else. Keep your head in the game!

    With other competitive Xbox One bundles launching this year, Microsoft looks dead set on offering as many incentives as possible to stay in the console race this year.

    They're including the Elite Xbox One controller? Wow. That's like $150 so makes the console 'bout $250 so for someone who might not like Madden it won't matter much.

    I'm still waiting for an announcement of Xbox One Slim.

    I'm genuinely amazed (realistic) sports games haven't died yet.

    No, it's just the newer revision of the base controller. No way are they ever going to bundle the Elite without making the price learn how to fly high into the sky.

    Sport games will exist for as long as there are sports. Players and other officials, you know?

    Y'know. You're right, all they do is update the roster and charge people full retail again next year, not like it takes any effort to maintain so I guess even if sales are mediocre, it's profitable.

    If there are credits in the games they must be like

    Jim - he updated some shit

    I would complain, but I know this will sell like hot cakes on a cold Tuesday, because Madden always sells.

    Digital copy of Madden? Then how will you trade it in to Gamestop so they can have tons of them sitting next to the register for $3 a year later?

    Me too, but only because EA has an exclusive license on most of them. If they didn't, we'd have much better sports games.

    This isn't for me at all. Though, I suppose it's not a bad deal for EA Sports fans. If they replaced the 1 year of EA Access with 1 year of Live, that'd be much better (unless it comes with both?)
