Titanfall Xbox One Bundle Details "Leak"
Written Monday, February 24, 2014 By Lee BradleyView author's profile
More reports of a special Titanfall Xbox One bundle appeared over the weekend.
According to Australian outlet Stevivor, the Titanfall bundle includes a black Xbox One, a Kinect sensor, a standard wireless controller, a headset, a one month Live Gold membership and a download code for the game itself. It will cost the same as a standard Xbox One, $599.00 AUD.
The author of the post says that he was sent the information direct from Microsoft, but was then asked to retract it due to an embargo. Stevivor duly removed the post and offered clarification to readers, but the internet never forgets. You can see a screen grab of the bundle below.
"We were given information that apparently was under embargo,” reads the clarification post, “though that embargo date was not communicated until after we'd posted the news.”
It’s not the first time we’ve had news of a Titanfall Xbox bundle. Last month an image of some packaging, as well as a special themed console appeared. But it was different to the images revealed by Stevivor this weekend.
Most notably, both the console and the controller you’ll see below are the standard editions. You would have thought that at least the controller would be the Titanfall special edition. But apparently not.
Expect official confirmation of all this soon. While the whole story is rather strange, we have no reason to doubt Stevivor. Sounds like a genuine mistake was made and the rabbit was let out of the hat a little early.
