Microsoft has just taken to the Xbox Wire to announce two Xbox One S bundles. The two 1TB version bundles, one for Madden NFL 17, and another for the Halo Collection, are set to launch on August 23 and are available for pre-order today.

Madden NFL 17 Xbox One S Bundle

The Madden NFL 17 bundle (available in US and Canada)  comes from a partnership with EA Sports, and is packed with everything a football fan needs ahead of the NFL Season. For the price of $349, a 1TB Xbox One S , a full-game download of Madden NFL 17, seven Madden Ultimate Team Pro Packs and one month of EA Access are included. It is, however, worth noting that bundles purchased at GameStop will include a physical copy of Madden NFL 17.

On the other hand, The Xbox One S Halo Collection bundle  is the ideal way to dive into the world of Xbox One and the iconic Halo universe. For the price of $349, it comes packed with a 500GB or 1TB Xbox One S, matching Xbox Wireless Controller and five games between Halo 5: Guardians and Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

Microsoft is noting that both the 500GB and 1TB hard drive options for the Xbox One Halo Collection Bundle will be available at participating retailers, including Microsoft Stores, in the U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand for $299 USD and $349 USD.  In the US, however, the 1TB hard drive option will only be available in very limited quantities at select Microsoft Stores and
