If you missed one of the many, many opportunities to buy a console on the cheap before Christmas, not to worry - there's more. The Microsoft Store has some solid bargains today for people in the market for an Xbox, particularly if you like Xboxes that can play 4K Blu-Rays.
As spotted earlier this morning OzBargain, the Microsoft Store has got 4 Xbox One S bundles going for under $300 a pop. They're all 500GB models, but which one you buy will depend on what game you'd like to come with it. Note that some of the bundles from the links below will have 1TB and 2TB variants, so to get the sub-$300 deal make sure you click on the 500GB option. It's pictured below, in case you need a guide.
Note that if you immediately go to the link, it'll display the 2TB model and say you get a free copy of Forza Horizon 3. Which sounds great! Except those bundles cost $500, and you can get a 500GB model with whatever game you like, plus Forza Horizon 3, a bag of chips, an extra controller, some chocolate, and whatever else you feel like for less than that.
Each of the bundles will also come with different little bits and pieces. The Gears of War 4 bundle, for instance, comes in Deep Blue instead of dust-attracting white and has a free download for the Xbox 360 Gears of War Collection. The Minecraft pack comes with the game on Xbox One, a beta for the game on Windows 10 and the Minecraft Builder's Pack.
The Halo Collection features Halo 5: Guardians on disc and a download for Halo: The Master Chief Collection, which is more than 150GB combined with all of the updates. Oof. And the best value of the lot, weirdly, is the FIFA 17 bundle: you get a full download for Virtual Football 2017 and one month of EA Access, which gives you access to a whole raft of solid titles including the older Battlefield games, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Star Wars: Battlefront, the Mirror's Edge games and the Mass Effect series.
Either way: a 4K ultra Blu-Ray player, a new console with a nice new controller, and a game (or more) to play for under $300. Take your pick and enjoy the holidays: all orders come with express shipping free of charge.
