Titanfall is a pretty amazing game, and it will only be available on three platforms – Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC. If you were already eyeing an Xbox One, Microsoft has a new bundle that may just convince you to make the jump.
Microsoft announced this morning that it will be releasing a limited Xbox One bundle that includes a digital copy of Titanfall. The bundle also includes what you would usually get with an Xbox One – the console itself, a controller, the Kinect and one month of Xbox Live. It would have been nice to have a year of Live to go with a multiplayer centric title like Titanfall, but Microsoft probably expects most who buy this bundle to already have Live.
Unfortunately, the console will not be receiving a bundle-specific design. It’s just the normal black Xbox One:
If you already find yourself with an Xbox One and don’t mind going digital, Microsoft will let you pre-load Titanfall. Doing so will allow you to start playing the game as soon as it launches at midnight on March 11. It’s a first for consoles, and one that I hope gains traction.

It’s hard not to be skeptical when a game gets this much hype, but the beta proved that Titanfall is the real deal. It’s one of the first games to really feel like a next-gen experience from a gameplay perspective even though its use of the decade-old Source engine means that its visuals won’t be quite on par with next-gen titles like Killzone: Shadow Fall or Ryse.
