Want to get started on gaming but you don’t know where? Xbox Series S Starter Bundle may be the answer.

Microsoft has just announced the Bundle today, which includes an Xbox Series S console with 512GB storage, a 3-month Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership, and a wireless controller for just USD 299.99. It will be available worldwide on October 31.

“This bundle includes everything you need to play right out of the box with the next-gen speed and performance of Xbox Series S and access to hundreds of games with 3 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, a $50 value,” says Microsoft.

The Xbox Series S is a next-gen console that delivers fast loading times, up to 120 frames per second gameplay, and the ability to play digital games from four generations of Xbox at a very affordable price.

“With features like Quick Resume, lightning-fast load times, and gameplay of up to 120 frames per second,** you’ve got everything you need to make the most of every gaming minute,” Microsoft adds.

Perfect gift for the upcoming holiday season? Well, you may want to hold on to your horses: Sony will launch a PS5 edition with an attachable disc drive next month. Once released, it’ll possibly push the original models away from the market.
