Microsoft's Phil Spencer on Xbox One X Pre-Orders

"Our plan is set for this".

If you're too busy waiting for the beast of an Xbox One X console to pre-order Madden 18 itself, Microsoft also announced that a free support update will be coming to the game later this year.

In other words, even if it is not in the lead of top-selling video games worldwide, including being "threatened" by the Nintendo Switch, the Xbox line is one of Microsoft's biggest hits and remains one of its most lucrative products.

We're not willing to go that far yet without any kind of official word from EA.

Those in the market for an Xbox One have some new options worth considering.


The store page does not list a price for the game as of yet but does specify its launch date to be November 17, 2017.

The first deal actually centers around an individual Xbox One S bundle.

Xbox One X, the world's most powerful console, was announced more than a month ago at the E3 show. The $500 console is expected to cause a rise in the number of UHD/HDR TVs being sold, so offering them as part of a bundle - as is the case with some Xbox One S machines - makes sense. This offer is available through Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, Target, GameStop, the Microsoft Store, and other retailers in the United States; it's unclear how long it will run for.

NFL Football fans have a new Xbox One bundle to consider: Starting August 25, you will be able to purchase the 500GB Xbox One S Madden NFL 18 Bundle in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico for $279. If you purchase an Xbox One S with a 1TB hard drive, you're entitled to a bonus game of your choice. Microsoft will not stock pile a massive amount of the high-end Xbox.
