The Xbox One has always been that sleek black color. After the success of Xbox 360, which also came in pitch black, Xbox One debuted and continued to embody the pitch black color in its console and accessories. But times are a-changing, and Xbox One is a-changing, as well. Xbox One is introducing three new colors that will adorn its new units: cirrus white, navy blue, and metal grey.
The newest of these three, fresh from Microsoft’s ovens, is the cirrus white Xbox One that will come with the Xbox One Special Edition Gears of War Bundle, announced by Major Nelson today.

Early this week, Xbox already released the Xbox One 1 TB Holiday Bundle that comes with the complete set of Gears of War games, too. So, which bundle should you choose? The Xbox One 1 TB Holiday Bundle comes with a great hard drive, since the Xbox One console included in the bundle is equipped with a 1 TB storage space. It also comes with Rare Replay and Ori and the Blind Forest, two great Xbox One exclusives. But how can you pass the beautiful and sleek white Xbox One unit that comes with the new Xbox One Special Edition Gears of War bundle?
“Relive the game that defined a generation with the Xbox One Special Edition Gears of War bundle. The new bundle announced today includes the following:
- Cirrus white Xbox One console
- Cirrus white wireless Xbox One controller
- A full-game download of Gears of War: Ultimate Edition in 1080p
- Superstar Cole multiplayer skin
- Early access to Gears of War 5 Beta in Spring 2016
- Get a chance to get the entire Xbox 360 Gears of War collection when you play Gears of War: Ultimate Edition on Xbox Live
- Access to five exclusive ‘never released on consoles’ campaign chapters”
This is the best bundle to get for all Gears of War fans, both for those who are just starting on the franchise and for veterans who have seen Gears of War redefine the third-person-shooter genre from the Xbox 360.
Watch out for the Xbox One Special Edition Gears of War bundle to release in November at Walmart, since this Xbox One bundle will be sold exclusively at the said retailer. The console is set to ship on October 30, shipping free worldwide.

The two other trendy colors that will color Xbox One bundles are navy blue, included in the Forza Motorsport 6 1TB Console, and metallic grey, the color of the Xbox One Limited Edition Halo 5: Guardians Bundle.
Shipping at $399, the Forza Motorsport 6 1TB Xbox One Console will include a customized navy blue 1 TB Xbox One console and wireless controller, a full-game download of Forza Motorsport 6, and the Tenth Anniversary Car Pack.
With an estimated retail price of $499, the Xbox One Limited Edition Halo 5: Guardians Bundle is already available for pre-order from the Microsoft Store and other retailers. The bundle will come with a 1TB customized Xbox One console and controller, a full game download of Halo 5: Guardians, the Warzone REQ Bundle that includes 14 premium Requisition Packs, FOTUS-class armor and multiplayer emblem, a Guardian model by Metal Earth®, Halo: The Fall of Reach Animated Series, Blue & Osiris team dossiers, and Spartan Locke’s Classified Orders. The metallic grey color, the blue accents, and the military insignias that define this Xbox One console is a tribute to all Halo fans who supported the series from the original Halo to Halo 5: Guardians.
Also released today alongside the cirrus white Xbox One Special Edition Gears of War Bundle is the Xbox One with Kinect Bundle that will come with a regular 500 GB Xbox One console, Kinect pack, and full-game downloads of Dance Central Spotlight, Kinect Sports Rivals, and Zoo Tycoon. The Kinect bundle is available in local retailers starting October for $499.
One more Xbox One bundle is getting announced tomorrow. Which Xbox One bundle is your favorite so far? Are you sticking with the pitch black Xbox One consoles, upgrading to an Elite 1 TB console for that cutting-edge controller, experimenting with Forza Mortorsports’ navy blue console, ready to rock the Halo 5-inspired metallic grey Xbox One, or are you going with the sleeker cirrus white Xbox One console of the Special Edition Gears of War bundle?
