With that Amazon bundle you can also choose either Fallout 4 or NBA 2K16 instead of COD. That same bundle posted from the Microsoft Store is also on sale at Amazon for $349 if you prefer to purchase from them.

Yes I was looking at that too. I thinking either of these might be better because it comes with the bundled game plus the choice of another and also a $50 credit to the Microsoft store.

I could always use the credit for black ops or buy it somewhere else i guess.

You don't need 1tb if you have a spare USB 3.0 external drive. Games load fast on external drive anyway.

Why does it loader faster on external?

There are a lot of YouTube videos on this and they all showed faster loading times when games are installed on USB 3.0 drives. I the there is a bottleneck of some kind in the Xbox hardware.

Internal HDDs, on both Xbone and PS4, use SATA II. A good external HDD, especially a 3.5 external powered one, yields faster transfer rates over USB 3.0. I've seen games loading as fast as 15-20 seconds faster from my external HDD vs the internal one

Just for sake of convenience and having the bigger HDD built in. Sure, if you have a spare HDD laying around but otherwise that's another $70-100 on top of console purchase.

Anyways, that deal is over and the bundle is back to regular $450 price point. Rise of the Tomb Raider/Ori and the Blind Forrest are two of the best games I played last year, and the other 3 are quality too.
