Pack-In Games

Buying a new video game console is exciting. Whether it's launch day or just the day you decide to go for it, the console will be new to you and offer a whole new range of games to play. Pack-in games are almost always included with new consoles so you can begin enjoying the console right away. While many of these games showcase the console and it's controllers, there's probably another game you were craving.

Let's take a look at some of our favorite consoles and we'll reveal the game we really wanted to play as soon as we got the new console hooked up to the TV!

Check out our list of Pack-In games for each game console.
