Microsoft announced not one but two Xbox One bundles that come with a free for Europe during a Gamescom presentation on Tuesday. Both FIFA 14 and Call of Duty: Ghosts are options but the question for North American gamers is, will they get something similar?
While Microsoft has not officially announced a free game bundle for the United States and Canada, it did leave the possibility open in a statement to Joystiq.
"We're only talking about EMEA today, we'll have information on other regions later. We're only talking Europe here," a Microsoft spokesperson told the gaming site after the press conference.
Bundling a free game with the Xbox One is a potential saving stroke for the console when it comes the comparison battle between it and the PS4. Sony's console is $100 cheaper at $399.99 but does not come with the Playstation Eye camera. The Xbox One with the Kinect sensor and a free game bundled in at $499.99 puts it at least on par value wise with its main competitor this holiday season.
The only thing left to reveal for the Xbox One is a release date which was not announced during the Gamescom press conference.
