If you don't have an Xbox Series X or S already but all of the hype around Halo Infinite multiplayer footage is making you reconsider, there's a new Xbox Series S bundle available in the run-up to Christmas that includes downloadable content for Rocket League and Fortnite for £249.99/$299.99
Yes, Rocket League and Fortnite are both free to play, but this console bundle includes an exclusive cosmetics pack for Rocket League (Midnight Drive pack), 1000 Rocket League credits and 1000 V-Bucks. It's hard to price up the Midnight Drive pack as it's exclusive to this bundle, but you're getting around £15 of downloadable content for free. Rocket League is super fun, by the way.
This is the best Xbox Series S bundle we've seen so far. It's been available through GAME for a while but they charge an additional fee for delivery/collection, so you're best off grabbing it through Amazon, AO, or any other retailer offering free delivery. The only downside to this bundle is the dispatch date isn't until December 13, so if you want to dive into Halo Infinite's campaign on day one, we've left links to individual consoles below.
