Which Xbox One holiday bundle should you buy this year? Microsoft has announced six Xbox One holiday bundles that will go on sale before the end of 2015, here is a quick comparison of what they all offer.
Microsoft has gone a little Bundle crazy this year, but we will only focus on the six detailed in the past week and not previously announced bundles, such as the Halo 5 bundle or the Xbox One Elite bundle. We'll take a look at what's on offer, when they are available (and for pre-order) and what they will cost.

The six new Xbox One bundles announced this week by Microsoft are:
  • Xbox One Rise Of The Tomb Raider Bundle
  • Xbox One 1TB Holiday Bundle
  • Xbox One The LEGO Movie Videogame Bundle
  • Xbox One Special Edition Gears Of War Bundle
  • Xbox One With Kinect Bundle
  • Xbox One Fallout 4 Bundle
So let's take a look at what comes with each bundle!

Xbox One Rise Of The Tomb Raider Bundle


The Rise of the Tomb Raider bundle will be available starting in November for $399 USD. Here's what you get:
  • Xbox One console with 1TB HDD
  • Full-game download of the highly anticipated 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
You can pre-order the bundle now from the Microsoft Store.

Xbox One 1TB Holiday Bundle


The Xbox One 1TB Holiday Bundle will be available starting 28 October for $399 USD. Here's what you get:
  • 1TB Xbox One console
  • Xbox One wireless controller with 3.5mm headset jack
  • Gears of War: Ultimate Edition
  • Rare Replay, featuring 30 iconic games from Rare
  • Ori and the Blind Forest full game download
  • Xbox 360 Gears of War collection
You can pre-order it from the Microsoft store now.

Xbox One The LEGO Movie Videogame Bundle



The Xbox One The LEGO Movie Videogame bundle will be available in October for $349 USD. Here's what's included with the bundle:
  • 500GB Xbox One console
  • Xbox One wireless controller with 3.5mm headset jack
  • The LEGO Movie Videogame
It is already available from the Microsoft Store and other outlets.

Xbox One With Kinect Bundle


The Xbox One with Kinect Bundle will be available starting in October for $499 USD. The bundle will include:
  • Xbox One 500GB Console
  • Kinect for Xbox One
  • Full game download of Dance Central Spotlight
  • Full game download of Kinect Sports Rival
  • Full Game Download of Zoo Tycoon
The exact date isn't announced yet but it is available to pre-order from Microsoft already.

Xbox One Special Edition Gears Of War Bundle


The Xbox One Special Edition Gears of War Bundle will be available starting in November for $349 USD. The bundle includes:
  • Xbox One 500GB Cirrus White console and controller
  • Full download of Gears of War: Ultimate Edition
  • Superstar Cole multiplayer skin
  • Early access to the Gears of War 4 Beta
While not exclusively part of the bundle, it is worth pointing out that for a limited time, when you play Gears of War: Ultimate Edition on the Xbox Live service, you will also receive the Xbox 360 Gears of War collection playable on Xbox One for free. This bundle is exclusive to Walmart in the United States.

Xbox One Fallout 4 Bundle


The Xbox One Fallout 4 Bundle will be available 10 November for $399 USD. You can already pre-order the bundle today. This what you will get in the bundle:
  • 1TB Xbox One console
  • Xbox One wireless controller with 3.5mm headset jack
  • Fallout 4 full game download
  • Fallout 3 full game download, now playable on Xbox One
  • 14-day Xbox Live Gold trial

For me, the Fallout 4 bundle would appeal the most, but it comes down to personal preferences. Microsoft previously announced a whole bunch of bundles available in multiple territories to cater to different tastes as the holidays approach.

If you were shopping for an Xbox One, which would you be tempted to spend your money on?
