If you're a fan of the original Gears of War and you still haven't bought an Xbox One, then Microsoft is sweetening the deal, hoping you'll buy its console by packaging copies of the Gears of War: Ultimate Edition remake inside special editions of the Xbox One.
According to Gears of War content creator Peter Byrne, during a panel at San Diego Comic Con The Coalition studio head Rod Fergusson confirmed that new boxes of the Xbox One console would be sold with a prepackaged copy of Gears of War: Ultimate Edition starting on August 25. You can already see the new bundle – which retails for $ 349 – on Microsoft's official site.

I always appreciate it when a video game console comes bundled with a game, and the original Gears of War is a solid shooter, so this is a good deal for those who've held off buying the console until now. We know that the game has been well-tested so it should be good to go when it releases.
