Microsoft Announces Two New Bundles


Another day another bundle (or bundles we should say) have been announced from Microsoft. Today’s new Xbox One bundle announcement includes not one, but two new bundles – the Xbox One Special Edition Gears Of War Bundle, available this November and the Xbox One With Kinect Bundle, available this October.

It is worth noting that the new Xbox One Special Edition Gears Of War Bundle is sporting that glorious white color as found in last year’s Sunset Overdrive bundle. The Xbox One Special Edition Gears of War Bundle features a 500GB Cirrus White console and controller, a full-game download of Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, the Superstar Cole multiplayer skin and early access to the Gears of War 4 Beta.

The Xbox One Special Edition Gears of War Bundle will be available exclusively at Walmart in the U.S. starting in November for $349 USD.

The Xbox One with Kinect Bundle will be available starting in October for $499 USD. Check with your local retailer, including Microsoft stores, for more details including pricing and availability.

Tomorrow, Microsoft will announce their last Holiday bundle and we expect some BIG stuff tomorrow.


Black Ops III engrosses players in a dark and gritty future, where a new breed of Black Ops soldier has emerged, and the lines between humanity and military technology have been blurred. You must navigate the hot spots of a new Cold War to find your missing brothers. While much has changed, one thing remains the same: everything you know may be wrong. How far down the rabbit hole are you willing to go to uncover the disturbing truth?

Another XBOX One Bundle Announced


Today marks the 2nd day in a week’s worth of announcements that Microsoft has planned for XBOX One bundles releasing in time for the Holiday season. Today’s bundle is a great deal if you ask me! The new XBOX One bundle will retail for $399 and will come with Gears of War: UE, Rare Replay & Ori and The Blind Forest. The system is also the 1TB model.

With the Xbox One 1TB Holiday Bundle, fans can look forward to:

Experiencing the original Gears of War rebuilt from the ground up in 1080p, including 60FPS competitive multiplayer with 19 maps and six game modes and five campaign chapters never released on console.

Accessing the entire Xbox 360 Gears or War collection to play on Xbox One through

Backward Compatibility at no additional cost when you play Gears of War: Ultimate Edition on Xbox Live by Dec. 31, 2015.

Playing a jaw-dropping collection of 30 iconic games with Rare Replay, from Battletoads and Banjo-Kazooie to Perfect Dark and more.

And immersing themselves in the critically acclaimed action-platformer, Ori and the Blind Forest.

This makes us excited for what Microsoft has in store for the rest of the week. Will you make the jump?

All New Live Action Trailer For Halo 5 Hits

Here is the new Halo 5 TV live action TV commercial that’s making its rounds today. The hotly anticipated XBOX One title is releasing next month complete with an all new XBOX One bundle featuring the game. I am beyond excited as Halo is one of my favorite franchises of all time. I love its multiplayer and get captured in its lore as well. Halo 5 looks remarkable and should help the XBOX One have a very nice Holiday season.

Check out the all new live action trailer and let us know what you think.

Microsoft Announces New Xbox One Rise of the Tomb Raider Bundle


Today, Microsoft has announced the Xbox One Rise of the Tomb Raider Bundle – the ultimate Tomb Raider experience. The newly announced bundle features the following items:

1TB hard drive, so fans can play and store more games than ever

Full-game download of the highly anticipated and Holiday 2015 Xbox exclusive Rise of the Tomb Raider

The exclusive Tactical Survival Kit Content Pack, which contains a new outfit and weapon skin for Lara

Full-game download of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, the HD remake of 2013’s critically acclaimed and award-winning Tomb Raider

The Xbox One Rise of the Tomb Raider Bundle will be available starting in November for $399 USD. Microsoft is really aiming to offer up gamers a plethora of choices headed into this holiday season and it will be interesting to see what bundle comes out on top (my guess is that the Halo 5 Guardians bundle will take the top spot in terms of sales).



They say that an image is worth a thousand words so we are just going to let this Battleborn infographic speak for itself. If you are an avid reader here at MVGN (and hopefully you are), you already know how excited we are for this game. The Borderlands series is one of my fav’s so I am eagerly awaiting for Battleborn to hit.

Read over the infographic and let us know what you think.



Here are the latest hardware sales from Japan. We all know that the Japanese public loves their portables as they have taken the top two spots. Rounding out the top 3 is the Wii U… Things will get interesting once the PS4 price drop hits as well.

Check out the list below:

3DS – 26.739
PS Vita – 20.210
Wii U – 16.033
PS4 – 8.375

LEGO Dimensions to be Supported For 3 Years


TT Games has confirmed that LEGO Dimensions will be supported with add-on content for at least another three years. In a recent interview with Eurogamer, the developer has stated they have “no intention of stopping” when it comes to adding DLC and figurines to the latest addition of the LEGO franchise. Here is what TT Games’ associate producer Mark Warburton said regarding the title:

“We have a three year plan at the moment and we’ve got no intention of stopping there. We’ve created the technology to the degree that we’re happy it meets our needs for the future. We’ve created the toy pad so that it shouldn’t need to be updated. And we can just create new level and character packs to keep expanding that.

“You can 100 per cent the game and get the Platinum trophy just from the base set. People have been playing Lego games for 10 years now, and we shouldn’t be offering anything less than that. You get the game, you get the toy pad, you get 200+ odd level bricks. We think we’re offering a lot of value with that and there’s a lot of gameplay there. There’s also a huge offering [of extra content] if you’re a fan and want to get into that we support that. But if you’re only a fan of particular thing you can only get that.”

Sounds great to us! Did you invest in LEGO Dimensions?
