Microsoft created white Xbox One envy when it gifted a special variant of its console to employees last year, but the company now plans to release the white version alongside Sunset Overdrive. Speaking to Polygon, a Microsoft spokesperson has revealed that the white Xbox One will come bundled with Sunset Overdrive, which will launch on October 28th. Microsoft has not yet confirmed pricing or an exact release date for the bundle, but the confirmation of a white Xbox One heading to store shelves follows rumors suggesting Microsoft would launch the bundle in October.
Ahead of the white console release, Microsoft is also making a new Madden NFL 15 Xbox One bundle available on August 26th. Priced at $399, the Madden bundle will include a standard black console without Kinect, a download code for Madden NFL 15, and a token for three Madden NFL Ultimate Team Pro Packs. Microsoft created a similar bundle for FIFA 14 with pre-orders of the Xbox One last year, and the latest EA partnership follows the launch of an Xbox One subscription service for a number of EA games last week.
