Activision and Microsoft are partnering up to release a premium console bundle. It will include an Xbox One with Kinect as well as Call of Duty Ghosts and some exclusive in-game content. There’s been no word on price.
The publisher also confirmed that Ghosts will have dedicated servers running on Xbox One. Using Microsoft’s Azure cloud service -much like Respawn Entertainment’s Titanfall- CoD players won’t have to solely rely on host connections.
With FIFA and Call of Duty currently under its belt, Microsoft is really throwing down the gauntlet as we approach next-gen.
Whether Sony has similar gambits up its sleeve remains unknown, at least for a few more hours. So far both consoles have near-enough matched each-other blow for blow despite Microsoft’s continued fumbling.
