Have you been thinking about picking up a new gaming console? Now might be the best time, because there's a pretty good deal going on over at Amazon. If you pick up one of the selected Xbox One bundles, you'll get a free Echo Dot for your troubles. This is one of those fancy new 3rd generation Echo Dots too with the fabric wrap.

This aligns with the recent announcement that you'll be able to control your Xbox using Alexa, so it only makes sense that you'd want to have an Echo nearby. No, it doesn't have the screen of the Echo Spot and won't deliver the boom of the Echo Sub, but that's not really the point.

The point is that you can holler voice commands to control your new Xbox One. This can be as simple as "Alexa, turn on Xbox" or you can dive deeper with "Alexa, tell Xbox to launch NBA 2K19." There are a bunch of other Alexa skills that tie into your free Echo Dot too, along with the more attractive design and improved sound quality.

You can pick up the Xbox One X bundle for $499.99. That includes the 1TB console itself, one wireless controller, a full game download of NBA 2K19, a month Xbox Game Pass, and a 14-day Xbox Live Gold trial, along with your free Echo Dot. The Echo Dot on its own is worth $49.99.

If you'd rather save a couple hundred bucks and don't need the X, you can get the Xbox One S bundle for $299.99. It includes all the same add-ons as the Xbox One X bundle, including NBA 2K19, as well as the free Echo Dot.


The third-generation Echo Dot isn't scheduled to launch until October 18, so it's possible that it'll arrive separately from your new Xbox. Delivery will "vary based on customer location and their proximity to the inventory," according to Amazon.
