Microsoft has announced the worldwide launch of a new Xbox Series S Starter Bundle, priced at $299.99 USD, set for October 31, 2023. Included in the bundle are an Xbox Series S 512GB console, a three-month Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership, and a Wireless Controller. The bundle essentially adds a $50 value by including a three-month Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription, based on its regular monthly price. This membership grants access to hundreds of games, such as Starfield and day-one releases, as well as online multiplayer, EA Play, and additional features.
Being a digital-only console with no disc drive, the Xbox Series S pairs well with an Xbox Game Pass subscription.
