If you’re in the market for an Xbox One X, now is a good time to buy. GameStop is offering all of its Fallout 76 bundles for $100 off, including the store-exclusive white model. That matches some of the lowest prices we’ve seen, including for Black Friday, even without a game.
Each of the Fallout 76 models at GameStop are priced at $400. That includes the 1 TB bundle with the game, and two different versions of the white console: one with the physical disc, and another with a digital copy. That bundle was exclusive to the retailer, giving you options for which neutral color you want to match with your decor.
Usually the Xbox One X goes for $500, and some discounts during the holiday season reduced it by $70-100, usually with some store extras like Kohl’s Cash.
Fallout 76 has had a rocky start. It received low review scores at launch, and then Bethesda was criticized for its advertisements about a special edition canvas bag that was switched for a nylon one. In its attempt to send the canvas bags as a make-good, it leaked personal data. More recently, a bug temporarily disabled nukes, and a series of patches had unintended consequences.
Still, Bethesda has consistently stated its plans to continue supporting the game, having announced upcoming features like a new mode without PvP restrictions and player shops.
«Bethesda has stated it intends to continue supporting the game for a long time, but at launch, Fallout 76 is a poor experience,» critic Edmond Tran wrote in GameSpot’s review. «There are echoes of the series’ admirable qualities, but look past that facade, past the cute Vault Boy animations, past the familiar radio tracks, and you’ll find no heart-just an inconsequential wasteland doomed to be nuked over and over again.»
