Xbox One Elite Now Out, Boots Up 20% Faster
The best Xbox One ever is out now.
The Xbox One Elite bundle, which comes with the highly sought after Elite controller, as well as 1TB of on board storage, coming in the form of a solid state hybrid drive (because of which it can boot up 20% faster), is now out. For players still looking to jump in on Microsoft’s vision of the next generation of gaming, this SKU represents the single best variant of the Xbox One that is currently available.
For the month of November, the Xbox One Elite console is sold exclusively at GameStop and Microsoft Stores, although it will probably get a wide release after this month. It costs $500, but unlike the Kinect bundle, which was what Microsoft launched with, and which also cost the same, there is a lingering sense that the Elite Bundle is actually well worth the price- especially for the dedicated gamer. I can see it being a very successful niche for Microsoft.
