Walmart surprised Friday morning by offering the Xbox One Titanfall bundle and the Xbox One Forza Motorsport 5 for $50 off their regular price. Best Buy stepped up by the afternoon with price matches on both bundles.
The Xbox One Titanfall Bundle is now available for $449.99 at Best Buy along with the Xbox One Forza 5 Bundle. Free shipping is offered along with free in-store pickup to get the console and game sooner. However, state sales tax is applicable.
Amazon has not performed a price match on either of these bundles at the time of this article. Update 1: Amazon has matched.
The standard Xbox One, controller, Kinect, headset and other accessories are all part of both bundles along with a download code for both games. Titanfall is a 16.39 GB download though while Forza Motorsport 5 is a 31 GB download. So, you'll need to plan accordingly when downloading the game and find something else to do to occupy your wait time to drop in a Titan or race a car.
In Examiner's review of Titanfall, the game was described as intensely fun and praised for the free-running and mech gameplay mechanics that keep it from the rut that other military and sci-fi shooters fall in. However, the game could use a little more polish to clean up some frame rate and other issues.
