The Xbox One and the PS4 will eventually be replaced by newer models, but the two consoles are still just as popular as ever in 2019. Microsoft announced the new Xbox One bundles that will be available this holiday season, offering newer games and updated accessories for holiday shoppers. Microsoft has the Xbox One X, Xbox One S, and the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition to choose from each year, and while each console plays the same games, they have slightly different features and selling points. The Digital Edition plays games downloaded from the Digital Store and doesn’t take discs, while the Xbox One S is slimmer than the standard Xbox One. The Xbox One X boasts 4K and HDR gameplay, making it the most expensive and most popular option. There are almost a dozen bundles to choose from this holiday season, but you really can’t go wrong with any option.

Diving into Microsoft’s other products, you’ll find the revamped Xbox Game Pass system. The Xbox Game Pass gives players unlimited access to over 100 games, and one version lets you play those games on both PC and console, and the other is just a console option. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate costs $14.99/month and includes all the benefits of Xbox Live Gold, as well as access to over 100 console and PC games, and new titles are added to the list each month. The first month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is now available for $1 if you want to give it a try. The Xbox Game Pass for Console costs $9.99/month and customers get access to the list of games, but only on the console. If you play on both PC and console, the Ultimate edition might be perfect for you, or you can save $5/month and just play on your Xbox.
