If the prospect of buying an Xbox One for not much money is tempting to you, then the Microsoft Store has a cracking deal.

It’s not the Xbox One S, but you are getting a 1TB console with one decent game of your choice for $319. You’ll also get one of the following: Rare Replay, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Gears of War: Ultimate Edition or Forza Motorsport 6.

It’s a “full game download” rather than an actual disc, so you’ll have to keep that in mind when you boot it up for the first time.

Buying from the Microsoft Store also means you’ll get free delivery and free returns if anything goes wrong. I found the Microsoft Store to be pretty painless when I had to return a busted Xbox Elite controller earlier this year, which is worth keeping in mind.

If you’re after a few more games for your money, the 1TB Holiday Bundle is $90 off as well. That has Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, Rare Replay, a download for Ori and the Blind Forest, and the Xbox 360 Gears of War collection. Again, it’s the standard Xbox One, not the flashier and slightly faster Xbox One S.

Nonetheless, if you’re in the market for an original Xbox One now isn’t a bad time to pick one up. And if you’re after some cheap games to go with that, the Microsoft Store has plenty of good deals there too …

Star Wars Battlefront ($23.98)
Tom Clancy’s The Division ($31.98)
Just Dance 2016 ($31.98)
GTA 5 ($39.98)
Fallout 4 ($39.98)
Rainbow Six: Siege ($39.98)
Destiny: The Taken King Legendary Edition ($39.98)
FIFA 16 ($39.98)
Need for Speed ($39.98)
Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate ($39.98)
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Day One Edition ($43.98)
DOOM ($48.96)
Guitar Hero Live ($59.98)

Plenty of decent offerings — the deal on Guitar Hero Live is especially good value, and with mods Fallout 4 is a damn tempting price for people who haven’t jumped in yet. The hour-to-dollar ratio on The Division is pretty good there, too. But if you want to view the whole list, head on over to the Microsoft Store.

Thanks, OzBargain!


      • They nailed the controller, but god damn, the song list, and the token system… I very quickly got over playing random awful metalcore to build enough tokens to play songs I like on demand. Give me old guitar hero with the new controller and I’d be happy.

        • The thing that got me most was that of ALL the Judas Priest songs out there, they picked Breaking The Law. I mean yeah it’s way harder than you’d think, coming off of regular GH and trying to play the new way, but there’s so much more musically interesting options to choose instead.

          Well I guess they could’ve gone with the piano-only Epitaph or something, so it could’ve been worse 😛

    • GH TV has some pretty good tracks on it, but yeah overall pretty blergh.

      Reckon its better than the Rock Band 4 standard set list though, that was disappointing. Thank god for DLC.

      • I’m glad my 200+ song list from last gen all works with RB4, which means I don’t care about the mostly weak list. Of course there are some must have songs in it though, and GHL is far far behind.

        • The most frustrating part though is that they totally nailed the controller with GHL. But it doesn’t matter when the song and token system is so awful.

          • Right? I didn’t really like World Tour at all compared to III, but then I ended up with Metallica and suddenly it was like “oh, the game was fine. It’s just the set list that was bad.” Not that I even like Metallica that much at all, it’s just way more interesting to play than the other crap they gave us :p

  • Microsoft is really going all out in their quest for people to jump ship aren’t they. Those are some pretty sweet deals, might have to snag myself something.

    • Compare Games with Gold vs PS+ as well and you’ll jump ship in a heartbeat. Back compat and monthly updates all add to it.

      If Don Mattrick didn’t exist and Phil Spencer was in charge when XB1 launched, we’d currently have a much tighter race (in Western markets anyway).

  • I don’t know if I am just getting used to buying things for cheap but very few of those games look like good deals to me, those are the kind of prices you would call a good deal on launch day, not several months down the track.

    JB was selling fallout 4 for 29 dollars last time I checked and I know I have seen R6 Siege on console for sub 30 dollars quite a few times now.

    • Wasn’t it that cheap for pre owned? EB had it for $25 pre owned, $35 new with fallout 3 code in their last sale.

      • Its for 29 dollars for new stock at JB right now, and for only an extra 80 dollars you can get the season pass!

  • I doubt anyone is actually tempted by WWE 2k16 (since apparently all WWE games suck nowadays) but just in case you were I’d like to point out that it will be free to Xbox Live Gold subscribers starting from the 15th of this month, so you’d be nuts to pay $40 for it now.
