Those looking for an Xbox One console should hit Amazon, as a wave of new bundles has just appeared, allowing consumers to get a bundle for as low as $499.99.
Previously available at only bundles that are priced from $700 and above, the new bundle has a free shipping option and a fast delivery, even by Dec 17.
Consumers can have this One Day Shipping bundle if they purchase it within today from Amazon. The other bundles are priced anywhere from $709.99 to $999.99, so this is a good deal as any to get.
According to IGN, Amazon is planning a restock on Dec 21, while no definitive date has been given for the PS4 restock before Christmas. While this is good news for those who want to get their hands on an Xbox One console, it does bring up the question on whether the Xbox One is moving the same numbers as the PS4 due to its easier availability or if the PS4 is just having issues with the pace of its production.
In retail stores, Digital Spy adds that both the Xbox One and PS4 may be back in Asda stores in the UK, starting Dec 17.

Xbox One in Numbers for November
Now that December has finally rolled in, it's time to review some of the figures and statistics that the Xbox One broke before rolling fully into the holiday season.
According to the Xbox News Wire, Xbox One has tripled the sales of its predecessor, the Xbox 360, during the same time frame of its launch way back in November 2005. This does not come as a surprise, considering that there are at least over 900,000 Xbox One units that have been sold in the U.S. alone.
Merging the figures for November with the Xbox 360, Microsoft's gaming consoles were able to hold five of the 10 spots on the console game title list. But one of the more reassuring news, for both the current and next-gen platforms, is that a total of $1.21 billion has been spent for these devices.
This goes for the Xbox platform for software, hardware and accessories sales in November alone. This is the most that has been recorded for any console in the U.S. And there's also the fact that the Xbox One has been stated to be the first console to enter China after its 13-year ban, so this may help future sales.

'Battlefield 4' on the Xbox One Patched
DICE's continuous project of patching up "Battlefield 4" has finally yielded the update for Xbox One to fix a variety of causes for major crashes in the game.
Game Informer lists down the complete fixes that come with the patch. Some of the fixes include reducing the chances of corrupted saves, online issues of the Xbox One version and fixing the "one-hit kill" bug that lets players take extreme damage from just one bullet.

The memory leak that could lead to crashes has also been dealt with for this update as well as crashes with the use of voice chat, optimisation of performance when shooting destroyed Levolution objects and removing common crashes when using Battlelog.
Check out the link above for the other minor inclusions in the patch update. For now, no word yet has been given by DICE if the patches are already finished, though it has stated that those who may want to opt out of the Premium Membership deal can get a full refund instead.
