First Xbox One S Bundles Are Really Cheap in the UK
Since the launch of the Xbox One S, sales have been heavy in Microsoft’s favor and it may continue thanks to some great deals on console bundles.
When it launched in the UK towards the beginning of last month, though, its £350 price tag wasn’t exactly accessible. But today, the first One S console bundles (with FIFA 17 included) have launched, lowering the cost of entry to dangerous, impulse-buy territory.
Whereas the standalone console has a 2TB HDD, the bundles include boxes with only 500GB or 1TB of storage. But if that’s not a deal-breaker, then you’re in for a treat. With retailers, namely Amazon and Tesco, egging each other on in a race to the bottom, you can get yourself a 500GB FIFA 17 bundle for £224, or the 1TB bundle for as little as £274. Tesco, for a limited time, is offering £25 off a £150 spend with its eCoupon TDX-HTNK, bringing the price down below £200. Considering FIFA 17 is £37 from Amazon on its own and the cheapest original Xbox One is typically around the £225 mark, these new bundles are basically steals.
They should retail at £250 and £300 respectively, remember, so there’s no telling how long these discounts will last. But, even if you do end up paying the normal retail price, the launch of these cheap bundles is a clear message that the original Xbox One is all but obsolete.
It is obvious that Microsoft is being very aggressive with their campaign to overtake Sony in total console sales. From what it looks like though, it’s a great time to be a Xbox gamer.
