The new Xbox One S bundles are;

New Xbox One S Bundles
At the time of writing, only the Minecraft bundle had a working Australian link. Each of the new Xbox One S bundles will cost 279 USD / £229 GBP / €279 EUR / $399 AUD. The bundles come with a 500GB hard drive, controller and a download code for the game related to the bundle.
All but the Halo bundle come with 3-months of Xbox Live Gold. The Starter bundle includes 3-months of Xbox Game Pass, while the other three grant 1-month access.
Minecraft’s bundle includes the full game, “Explorer’s Pack” and Minecraft Story Mode – Season 1. The Rocket League bundle includes a download code for Rocket League and the Halo bundle includes download codes for Halo 5: Guardians and Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
Where Do I Buy One
The new Xbox One S bundles will be available in retailers, most likely EB Games and JB Hi-Fi in Australia. They are also available at Microsoft Stores. In Australia, that would be the flagship store in Sydney.
The new bundles are coming at an odd time considering that the Xbox One X will be out in less than a month. However, since the pre-orders for the new console are completely sold out if you want to add an Xbox console to your house, the Xbox One S is your best option.
The Xbox One and Xbox One S are available now. The Xbox One X will be released on November 7.
