Microsoft has announced not one, but two new Xbox One bundles. The first is the beefier Xbox One X console that is bundled with PUBG, while the other is a Minecraft bundle that includes the Xbox One S console. The new bundles are for US customers only, and are exclusive to the Microsoft Store and Walmart.


The new Xbox One X PUBG bundle will cost $499 and includes the 1TB Xbox One X console, wireless controller, 1-month Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold trial, and a full-game digital download of PUBG. Microsoft has also announced that PUBG on Xbox One has passed over 8 million players, a big change since March where PUBG had 5 million players on Xbox.

Microsoft's other Xbox One S Minecraft bundle costs $299 and includes the 1TB Xbox One S console, the full-game download of Minecraft and S1 of Minecraft: Story Mode - The Complete Adventure, a 1-month Xbox Game Pass and 14-day Xbox Live Gold trial.

Microsoft explains: "If the Xbox One S is more your style, we've also got the Xbox One S Minecraft Bundle. Beat the summer heat with the cool new Update Aquatic and explore new ocean biomes, shipwrecks, ruins and more. Infinite worlds and ways to play can be found in this bundle, as well as the option to play with your friends on nearly any other platform thanks to Xbox Live".
