Congrats to Jason of Fl (sigteacher) for wining the giveaway!

Attention, Ben's fans! We are continuing our Black November celebration of deals with an awesome console bundle giveaway. One of you will win the brand new Xbox One Assassin's Creed Unity Bundle along with a copy of Sunset Overdrive and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare!! (MSRP $519).

Released recently, the Xbox One Assassin's Creed Unity Bundle includes the 500GB Xbox One gaming console along with copies of Ubisoft's brand new Assassin's Creed Unity as well as last year's Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. Other accessories in the package include one wireless controller, a chat headset and HDMI cable.

As an added bonus, we are including copies of Microsoft's Sunset Overdrive, a brand new open world, third-person shooter that's receiving excellent reviews, as well as Activision's Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, starring Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey.
