I’m in the middle of refurbishing my house, so i was going to wait to get the next gen console. But after selling an extra car and making my decision on x1 vs ps4 (I’m writing an article on how i made that decision), I got the Xbox One Gears of War bundle.
Best Buy was having a crazy sale on their own tvs, so i got two 40″-ers for the price of one! One is for the X1 and one for the Xbox360/PS3. I also got a second Turtle Beach headset for the X1, since the Gears version doesn’t come with headsets. There was some gripe about that from forum posters, but i didn’t care, because i like to use Turtle Beach. I had a wired headset so i got the wireless this time.
I have a new crush on Gears ever since a gamerpal Waigaye introduced me to the franchise last year. With this bundle, you get am amazing re-digitized version of Gears 1. After my initial introduction to gears, I immediately bought all the dlc’s for the 360.
With this X1 bundle, you also get to participate in the Gears 4 beta. Plus, X1 made the Gears franchise top priority in their new backwards compatible games list. So i will be able to play all gears games (through Judgement) on my X1. I don’t plan to get rid of my 360 as I have good friends on that console, but that’s another plus.
