White Xbox One and Sunset Overdrive bundle leaked by European retailer
French retailer MicroMania might have jumped the gun, possibly spoiling one of Microsoft's big Gamescom announcements. As spotted by Eurogamer, the retailer listed a white Xbox One console (like the one) bundled with a copy of Insomniac Games upcoming shooter Sunset Overdrive.
Interestingly, the bundle is priced at 399,99 € which is currently what the Kinect-less Xbox One normally costs on its own. Should the listing be accurate, that would mean that Sunset Overdrive is essentially free in this bundle. Talk about a great deal. Not only are you getting the awesome white Xbox One, which was previously only available to members of Microsoft's internal development as a free gift for the console's launch, but you're also getting a free game.
What's more, this bundle seems to be the same one previously rumored back in January. If you recall, an alleged Xbox Insider on NeoGAF claimed the white console would be available standalone or as part of a bundle with Sunset Overdrive some time in October. Microsoft never officially commented on the speculation, but company frontman Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb did say in August 2013 that a white Xbox One model could eventually be sold to consumers in "the waaaaay future." Now the only question is whether or not this bundle will be offered in the U.S.
The listing has since been removed, but not before Eurogamer snagged a screenshot.
