Xbox Microsoft has announced that a new white Xbox One bundle with the Master Chief Collection will be coming later this month to the United States. It’s the same 500 GB hard drive and digital game as the standard black, just a change in color for the console and controller. This bundle will be a limited production which means when they sell out, they’re gone for good. Microsoft Store has pre-orders available now with participating retailers coming soon. Oh, and it’s the reduced $349 price.

Also coming from Microsoft this week is the new Hauppauge digital tuner for the Xbox One. This attachment allows you to watch the over-the-air channels directly through your console. Essentially it’s a digital converter USB stick that takes the signal from an antenna and makes it readable for the Xbox One. You’ll be able to purchase one in the United States or Canada for $60, or an exclusive bundle from Microsoft store gives you an antenna to use for $100.

Battlefield Hardline The first DLC for Hardline, Criminal Activity, is quickly approaching and we have new information for what to expect. First off is the obvious multiplayer maps. Four new maps called: Backwoods, Code Blue, The Beat and Black Friday. Two new vehicles will be available to drive, as well as two new ammunition types for specific weapons. There is one new gadget, three new guns and a Nailgun battlepickup to find on the maps. Six new masks will also be added, two animal masks for criminals and four helmets for police. And last but not least is a new Bounty Hunter game mode. I wish we had more information on that mode, but they haven’t said yet. No additional details have been given for any of the other things listed either. You can expect to see Criminal Activity sometime in June for early access players.

Witcher 3 For those of you playing the Witcher 3 on consoles you may be aware of some issues with the game. The developer, CD Projekt Red, released a patch yesterday for the PC version improving the graphics and fixing an assortment of bugs. The console version is a bit delayed. No release window has been mentioned, but it won’t be this weekend. The Xbox One version specifically has a bug that can corrupt your save and crash the game. If you’re lucky, you’ll have the cloud save as a backup but most seem to just lose everything. Hopefully the delay of this patch is because they’re working on a fix for this bug.
Need for Speed EA has released a teaser trailer for the reboot of Need for Speed. Ghost Games skipped a release last year in order to improve quality and give the series a new life. New customization options have been mentioned, but a full reveal of what they have planned won’t be until E3. The Need for Speed reboot will be released in Autumn 2015 on Playstation 4, PC, and Xbox One. Check out the teaser trailer below:
