FYI, this story is more than a year old

Microsoft has announced that it is releasing a new Xbox One S console bundle that includes Halo 5 and the Master Chief Collection.  There are two Xbox One S bundles that you can get. One is the 1TB bundle costing NZ$599 and the other is a 500GB model that is priced at $NZ$499. Both consoles will be out on August 23rd with pre-orders starting from today.  Both of these come with download codes to both Halo 5: Guardians and Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Essentially, you are paying for five games in total since the Master Chief Collection is a remaster of the first four games in the series.  Apart from being slimmer than the current Xbox One console, the new S model can play 4K discs and upscale existing games to 4K as well.
