This Witcher 3 bundle might be the best Xbox One deal yet

Well, here's something. Days after the Xbox One was reduced to £299.99 (opens in new tab) in the UK, retailer Game has announced a bundle that looks like even more of a bargain. Comprising a Kinect-less Xbox One and a copy of The Witcher 3 (opens in new tab), it comes in at £309.99. It can be pre-ordered now (opens in new tab).

While I'd still argue that a Kinect is worth everyone's while (it says hello to me when it sees my face!), the chance to grab a game that's looking top banana for a penny under a tenner is a difficult prospect to mug off.

You may have noticed my painful slide into British slang, there - that's because there's no immediately apparent US equivalent for the deal. While I wouldn't rule it out - different territories often work to different announcement timescales - it's certainly not unheard of for one region to get preferential treatment.

Maybe we Brits just don't like the prospect of having sex on a unicorn (opens in new tab) quite as much as our American cousins, and need a bit of an incentive. We'll find out when the game's released on 19th May, I suppose.

Joe first fell in love with games when a copy of The Lion King on SNES became his stepfather in 1994. When the cartridge left his mother in 2001, he turned to his priest - a limited edition crystal Xbox - for guidance. And now he's here.
