This Xbox One S Bundle Comes With Six Awesome Games At A Discount

The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition released back in May, and only three months later, there’s quite the bundle for it. Online retailer BuyDig is offering an Xbox One S All-Digital bundle with six games and two months of Xbox Live Gold for $330 US, down from $369.

The games included are Minecraft, Madden NFL 20, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Sea of Thieves, Forza Horizon 3, and Gears of War 4. BuyDig will ship the bundle to the US, Canada, and UK, but you should expect hefty shipping costs to the latter two countries.

Last week, we reported on an Xbox One S and 4K TV bundle for $500. It comes with a copy of Madden NFL 20, in addition to a second game depending on which Xbox One S bundle you choose.

The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition is nearly identical to the regular Xbox One S. The only difference is the lack of a disc drive; the All-Digital Edition can’t play physical game discs or 4K Blu-rays.

New Green Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons Available For Pre-Order Now

The Nintendo Switch has a bunch of new colour options coming for its Joy-Cons later this year, but one of them will only be available through Best Buy in the US. Green Joy-Cons are available for pre-order from the retailer now with a release date set for October 27.

Other Joy-Con colours launching this October include a Blue and Neon Yellow pair and a Neon Purple and Neon Orange pair (or as I like to call them the Waluigi and Wario Joy-Cons). They arrive on October 4.

One thing that’s important to note about Joy-Cons is that many reports of analog stick drift have been reported in recent weeks. Nintendo has addressed this issue and is currently offering free Joy-Con fixes and refunds to those who have already paid for repairs. I recently sent in a pair of Joy-Cons and was not charged for the service. It’s unclear if Nintendo will take steps to prevent this from happening to new Joy-Con models.

You can also pre-order the Nintendo Switch Lite now. This includes the Gray, Yellow, and Turquoise models, in addition to the Zacian and Zamazenta version. The first three colours release on September 20, while the Zacian and Zamazenta edition releases on November 8, a week before Pokemon Sword / Shield.

Here Are The Top 10 Best-Selling Games In The UK This Week

Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled has stormed back into the lead at the top of the UK physical games chart. The remaster is back at No.1, as Switch exclusive Super Mario Maker 2 keeps pace at No.2.

More Switch games are found throughout the top 10 for the week ending August 10, with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (No.3), Fire Emblem: Three Houses (No.7), Minecraft‘s Switch port (No.9) and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (No.10) all charting well. There were no new entries in the top 40 this week.

We enjoyed the latest Crash remake here at GameSpot, awarding it an 8/10. “Simply put: This is a remaster done right,” we said in our Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled review. “Nitro-Fueled maintains the spirit and rock-solid foundations of a childhood favorite while building on it and modernizing it where necessary–even if the handling might take a bit of getting used to. Adventure mode’s classic variant feels a little tough, but your first race on Roo’s Tubes or Sewer Speedway will bring a nostalgic grin to your face regardless. When the nostalgia fades, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled remains fun and engaging enough to keep you racing on with a smile on your face for much longer yet. It’s good to have Crash back.”
