Amazon is bundling an Xbox One, NBA 2K19, and Echo Dot

Amazon has a pair of exclusive Xbox One bundles with a copy of NBA 2K19, a 1-month Xbox Game Pass trial, a 14-day Xbox Live Gold trial, and an Amazon Echo Dot. The Xbox One S bundle is $299 while the Xbox One X bundle is $499.

Microsoft and Amazon announced last week that Alexa-enabled devices would begin to support Xbox One. The feature enables people to use their voice to navigate and interact with Xbox through Cortana and Alexa-enabled devices, expanding voice navigation beyond previous Kinect and headset capabilities.

Now you can use voice commands to power on your Xbox One console, adjust the volume, launch games and apps, start and stop broadcasts on Mixer, capture screenshots, and more. For example, if you have the Xbox skill enabled on your Echo just say “Alexa, launch Forza Horizon 4” and this command will automatically turn on your console, sign you in, and launch Forza Horizon 4.

You can look for the Xbox Skill in the Alexa Skill Store or the Cortana Skill Store to get started. To set up Alexa, just say, “Alexa, open Xbox.” To set up Cortana, just say, “Hey, Cortana, open Xbox,” or search for “Xbox” in the assistant skill store.
