Set to hit global store shelves and rake in big holiday shopping season bucks beginning this November, the newly unveiled Xbox One Elite Bundle lives up to its name in more ways than one.

First and foremost, the bundle will ship with the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller, that pricey Xbox One and Windows 10 gamepad Microsoft announced at E3 which features “interchangeable paddles, further customization with the Xbox Accessories app, Hair Trigger Locks and high-performance construction to provide an unparalleled experience every time you game.”

Additionally, the bundle includes a matte-finished Xbox One console outfitted with a 1TB Solid State Hybrid Drive (SSHD), promising optimized system performance to get back to gaming “up to 20 percent faster from energy-saving mode.”

The Xbox One Elite Bundle will retail for $499. That’s a pretty good value considering the insane $150 standalone price tag on the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller. Unfortunately, during its first month on the market the bundle will be sold exclusively through GameStop and Microsoft Stores.

Another upcoming GameStop-exclusive offering from Microsoft is this lovely Lunar White Xbox One wireless controller, which goes on sale in late September for $64.99:
