Gamescom 2016 is just around the corner and Microsoft is already jumping in with offers and bundles to attract the gaming crowd. From August 15th to the 28th, customers who purchase a new Surface Book will also receive the Surface Dock and an Xbox One wireless controller for free. Together, both extras retail for about 200 Euros or more depending on the region. The promotion applies to participating Microsoft Stores and retailer partners.

The following Surface Book SKUs apply for the bundle:

  • Surface Book with Nvidia GeForce, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD, Intel Core i5
  • Surface Book with Nvidia GeForce, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD, Intel Core i7
  • Surface Book with Nvidia GeForce, 16 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD, Intel Core i7
  • Surface Book with Nvidia GeForce, 16 GB RAM and 1 TB, Intel Core i7

Note that the cheapest Surface Book configuration with the Core i5, integrated HD Graphics, 8 GB RAM, and 128 GB SSD is excluded from this promotion. Thus, users must opt in for the costlier configurations if they wish to get the bundled extras.

Aside from also being compatible with the Xbox One console itself, the wireless controller will work with both Games for Windows and Xbox streaming. It's clear that the Redmond company is encouraging gamers to use their Windows 10 platforms as gaming machines in conjunction with their Xbox consoles.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
