    Nice deals…

  •  

    Conflicted on which bundle to buy.

    Online or the other two.
    Online has more games and I've never owned any Xbox before but I've played Battlefield and FIFA on PS / PS.
    Never did like Halo as I never got the time to play enough of it.

      Well this gives you Halo 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and Halo Wars 2 so it's only missing ODST, Reach (which is great) and the first Halo Wars. I'd call it a pretty damn good Halo starter pack. The first 2 are "Anniversary" editions so the textures are HD/remade.

      •  

        Fairly certain ODST can be downloaded after you install the collection. Cause of all the issues they had at launch

        • +2 votes

          This is correct, however it's not free. But i think from memory it's only around $6-$7 so still not bad.

          @narcoleptic-haze: OK cool
          It was free I you had played it prior to a certain date..
          cheers Sorry if I accidently mislead anyone.

          Online users that logged in with their Xbox Live account and played Halo: The Master Chief Collection on any day from November 11, 2014 through December 19, 2014 at 11:59 pm PDT are eligible for a free code granting access to the Campaign for Halo 3: ODST on Xbox One. Offer is non-transferable

        Really hope they end up redoing Reach (and 3 while we're wishing for things, I guess), even if it's just minor texture touchups and performance increases. It could be the convincing factor in an Xbox One purchase, if they didn't release it on PC. Ah well, I can dream.

    I just bought it for 400 a week ago. They didn't bither to send us any download tokens and are running us around trying to get them.

    • +1 vote

      Who did you speak to, i'll see if I can help?

      All the digital download codes should have been sent with the console and Halo Wars 2, I know they had stock.

      •  

        I ordered it in my partners name so he has been talking to them. We called thursday but got cut off just as we connected because they closed. Called friday and they said we would be contected yesterday then called today and told they would call tomorrow. Who knows if they actually will.

      •  

        Should the download codes be listed on the receipt? Ours only showed the minecraft bundle and halo wars 2.

          I bought mine last week too.

          Halo tokens were missing for me also. I've already emailed and they are going to send them out to me. Looks like I wasn't the only one.

          Now I wish I'd waited a week.

        •  

          @Elyxar:I just got an email too telling me they were sending the tokens. Im glad the online team is on the ball. It felt like the people on the phone were just running us around thinking we were lying.

    Halo Wars 2 is a physical copy, does that mean it's not Play Anywhere?

    How much would you get for the 6 games? Could be a cheap blu ray player.

    • +3 votes

      Given they are only codes, I'd pay….

      Halo Wars 2 (physical copy)- $40 as new release
      Minecraft (digital copy) - $10 (Some might pay $15 as retailers still want $29)
      Halo 5 (digital copy) - $10 (Old game, but great meta community)
      Halo Master Chief Collection (digital copy) - $5-10 (Excellent value, still broken, pretty good meta community, these codes are on every xbox purchase, bringing down value exponentially)
      Rainbow Six (digital copy) - bundle all three for $40 (Some might go to $50, though it's a stretch)

      $110 all up ($120 at best)

      Bundled at $99, I'd be keen, even though I already own most of these.

      Then again, what do I know…?

      • +1 vote

        I've placed a request in the classifieds if anybody is wanting to sell Halo 5 or swap for something else.

    How much is postage? Big W's site is down.

  •  

    Your meant to get the physical games and codes upon purchase right?

    Just curious after reading the issues somebody had above.

    • +3 votes

      100% you are, this is the first issue I have heard of regarding codes not being received.

      I pointed them in the right direction of who to contact and let the department know what the issue is and to get it sorted a.s.a.p.

  •  

    Damn this is a wicked deal, was happy to buy the target deal but this is even better :D

  •  

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong but in the big w catalogue it had the minecraft Xbox one s and halo wars 2 for $399 so if you buy it online you get the other games ?

    • +1 vote

      The brochure deal would have been confirmed weeks ago however the offers you are seeing from Big W and other retailers are due to a flash sale that Microsoft are running for the 1st and 2nd of March :)

      Hope that makes sense

    Hi,

    Is the online Big W checkout system able to process 2 different payments for the 1 transaction as I have a $200 Visa gift card I'd like to use towards this bundle and then pay the difference with another card.

    Thanks.

    Hi OP,
    Do you know what time the sale will go live online?

  •  

    why does the xbox one S have to be white? that's the only reason I don't want to buy this deal.

    • +4 votes

      racist

    •  

      I went for the Limited Grey version, But to be fair the Console is actually White with a Black base.
      SO if you pop it on a Stand it looks pretty good IMO , however you have to buy the stand extra :(

    Will this be online from 1201AM or later on in the morning? should i be setting my alarm to wake up

  •  

    Sorry just want to confirm something:

    For the in-store offers - e.g. Xbox One S 500GB console + Battlefield 1 + Halo Wars 2: $329

    1) Are the games physical discs (i.e. FIFA17 or BF1 and Halo Wars 2) or are some games in disc format and some codes

    Online offer
    2) The online offer seems to be the current Minecraft boxed bundle (where the actual packaging is Minecraft themed) - are the other games just included as separate cards / and discs or are they included in the pack, and for the in-store offers is it just the standard white packaging?

    and just as a final query - Why would anyone buy the in store Minecraft offer over the online offer then?

  •  

    Can any insiders tell us why these been going so cheap now? Everything happened for a reason right?

    • +1 vote

      No idea as to the real reason why but my guess is to claim some market share before Nintendo switch kicks in.

      Very good deals and they are really only losing a few dollars but for large market share.. Xbox has become very hard to justify with it's limited exclusives. Unless your a hard core fan boy of one of the titles PlayStation pretty much has it all so their power play and only move now is price.

      Think if amd was lacking in sales and needed to move a lot of stock very fast before a new competitor was coming in.. price is the only answer besides some exclusivity.

      But there are a million reasons as to why this is just my own speculation take it as you will.

    •  

      Some people say they're trying to claw back market share. My theory is that they're just selling 30% more at 30% less.

    Hi guys. Does anyone know what big dubs would charge for shipping?

  •  

    How do they post a console and games anyone ever bought from big w a console not sure if it's trustworthy?

    •  

      Bought last week. Took 2 days to arrive via Star Track (AUS Post). Was shipped in a large box with the console standing on its end diagonally. Halo wars game was in the box separately. Hope this helps.

  •

    •  

      Just got one for myself.

      Was contemplating saving the extra 5% using the cashrewards giftcard, but didn't know how long it would take for them to send me the code so i didn't want to risk it. lol

      •  

        haha yeah, I was gonna wait to see if they would discount the ebay store one so i could use the 10% off but didn't want to miss out haha

  •  

    Plus $13.90 delivery??

  •  

    Fun Fun placed an order received a message unable to process payment on CC no order number created then tried again via Paypal same thing unable to process payment no order number created but CC showing both charges processed.. Not looking forward talking to the 1300 support team :s and definitely not trying a third time..

    •  

      Had the same thing here, used gift card, tried paying with Amex, failed, tried Paypal, failed, 3rd try using Visa worked however. However received a Paypal receipt for the full amount so no doubt I'd expect to have been charged on my Amex as well. At least i managed to get this bundle.

      •  

        Just tried Visa went through no issues, now to chase up funds on the other 2 attempts :) Thanks!

  •  

    Checked out fine and 9.90 shipping. Thanks for the heads up on this one.

  •  

    $13.90 shipping on the Gold Coast.

  •  

    Awesome deal, thanks OP. This has to be the best deal out of them all.

  •  

    Grabbed the online pack. $15.90 delivery to regional QLD. I was set on the Target deal, then I saw the Microsoft online deal (I really want an XBox for Forza), but couldn't resist the bundle of games that came with this one.

  •  

    I ordered but didn't get confirmation email?

  •  

    Anyone know if I can sell the digital download codes? Thank you.

    In the space of a few minutes and during the time I was writing this:

    http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/NEW-Xbox-One-S-500GB-Halo-Wars-2-...

    was available for $199

    They're adjusting the price however and it's now reverted to $399, I expect that it will come down to $299.

    Here are the revision times:
