Fry’s Electronics dropped what is possibly the most enticing Xbox One bundle on Friday. The retailer is offering the console with a $40 discount and not one but two free games.

The Xbox One bundle with a downloadable copy of “Forza Motorsport 5” and a physical copy of “Titanfall” is available at Fry’s Electronics for $459.99. Shipping is not available currently but free in-store pickup is. This deal is good through Thursday, March 17 but state sales tax is applicable.

Microsoft recently put out two Xbox One bundles along with a $50 discount for a limited time. One bundle features “Forza Motorsport 5” and the other features “Titanfall.” Both have been available regularly at the Microsoft Store, Amazon and other retailers though not with the $50 discount consistently.

So Fry’s Electronics has essentially taken the “Forza 5” bundle, discounted it $100 and thrown in a $60 copy of “Titanfall.” That’s almost as good as the recent Xbox One bundle combined with a free 12-month Xbox LIVE Gold subscription at Target the past week.

“Titanfall” is the first-person shooter from Respawn Entertainment, consisting of the original team that created Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and published by Electronic Arts. It was released to the Xbox One on March 11 and features six-on-six multiplayer matches featuring players on foot or while piloting metch-style Titans. The game recently received an update that allows private matches and Respawn just announced the first DLC is due out in May and will feature three new maps and campaign.

“Forza Motorsport 5” is the latest in the racing simulator series from Turn 10 Studios and Microsoft Studios. It was a launch game for the Xbox One and has also been the recipient of recent updates including a second free track, Long Beach Circuit, as well as a steady stream of DLC cars.
