White Xbox One bundle dated for October

Will launch alongside Sunset Overdrive

The previously rumoured white Xbox One console is set for a retail release this October alongside Sunset Overdrive.

The bundle will launch on October 28 in North America and October 31 across Europe, priced at €399.99, Microsoft announced on Tuesday during Microsoft's Gamescom media briefing in Germany.

It marks the third bundle Microsoft revealed at its Gamescom media briefing, along with the Call of Duty Advanced Warfare and FIFA 15 bundles.


A small number of white Xbox One units were initially provided to Microsoft employees involved with the console's development. The systems came with all the launch-day first-party games, a special achievement and the words 'I made this' etched next to the disc slot.

A white Xbox One was auctioned in November 2013 and raised $11,300 for charity.

Sony is to release a white PS4 later this year. While it will initially only be available as part of a Destiny bundle launching in September, a standalone version will follow before the end of 2014.
