It's only the 500GB model of the original Xbox One, but the price is a little hard to ignore.
In the market for a console this Christmas and you don't really care about 4K, playing things on a 4K screen and largely just want an efficient media box that can also play some games? That's going to be the sales pitch, or at least it should be, when Target starts selling this from tomorrow.

I'm sure most people, families included, will probably give the LEGO Movie game a complete pass. Minecraft's more popular, there are better LEGO games (see The Force Awakens) and come Christmas there should be plenty of sub-$40 aging AAA titles to mess around with.
It probably won't be the last sub-$300 deal we see on the Xbox One this year though. With retailers clearing their inventory of old consoles and trying to promote the Xbox One S and the new PS4 models, there should be a few offerings on the original Xbox One before Christmas. We'll probably see slightly more expensive bundles with better deals, but $249 is a pretty hard price to complain about.
