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)
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.
