From the source... Xbox One S: Gears of War 4 Bundles

These are purrrttyyy... and as long as the games are there to enjoy them. Bring them on!
I love to see new consoles and I love it even more when they are accompanied by new games to be enjoyed on them. A healthy library of existing titles doesn't hurt either... but having something new is super fantastic in my opinion. Bundle releases are the smartest way to go when it comes to the release of a newer version of an existing console... but I look forward to the day that new consoles come with a title bundled with them also. One that really shows what the system can do and sets the pace for others (a stable game that doesn't require patches and all that stuff).

By the way... if you're wondering where we've been... we've been in a planning and prep phase, BUT... news continues to roll out. You will find more frequent news on our Twitter page and more off the cuff stuff on our Instagram.
