Gearing up for the holiday season, Microsoft has announced an Xbox One Elite bundle following their hard drive upgrades and various themed consoles, including that beautiful Halo 5: Guardians edition. The Xbox One Elite will include a 1TB Solid State Hybrid Drive and the $150, high performance Elite controller with interchangeable parts that was unveiled at this year's E3 event. The SSD, according to Xbox Wire, “stores frequently-accessed files on a solid state partition and optimizes system performance so you can get to the action up to 20 percent faster from energy-saving mode.”
