Microsoft Announces Limited Time Offers for Xbox One S, Xbox One X

Posted on February 15, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Games, Xbox One with 7 Comments

Microsoft is announcing some new Xbox One deals today. The company is bringing back a popular Xbox One X deal and offering a new deal for existing Xbox One S bundles.

Starting February 18, Microsoft is cutting off $50 off all Xbox One S bundles until March 3 — including the new PUBG bundle that’s launching next week. A similar deal is available in Canada today until February 23, where you can save $60 CAD on all 1TB Xbox One S bundles.

For the Xbox One X, Microsoft is bundling a digital copy of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds with every Xbox One X purchase between February 18 and February 24. This deal is available more widely since the bundled game is digital, and you can get it in countries like the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, India, Korea, New Zealand, Singapore, select European and Latin American markets, as well as the United States and Canada. The deal is available until March 4.

PUBG is obviously the main focus with the latest Xbox One deals, and it’s not surprising to see Microsoft continuing to push the title, an Xbox One console exclusive, to promote its consoles.

    Microsoft needs to stop doing this.. we have purchased 3 Xbox One S's since right before Xmas. Almost every TV in the house has an Xbox of some type attached. ?? Clearly I have no impulse control, and Microsoft just isn't helping at all.

    I think that will put most 500GB Xbox One S bundles at $229, which is pretty good. $249 for the 1TB bundles isn't bad either.

    Great, and I just put my used Xbox One S for up for sale :(

    I realize they want to entice new customers but it would be nice if they rewarded the early adopters. If I had waited just a little bit to buy the Xbox One X, I would have received PUBG. Usually I do not mind the great deals when they happen down the road but they very quickly offered either a free copy of PUBG or had the deal for 2 free games on a console that was not out more than 2 months recently.

    Clinging to a popular multiplatform title for dear life doesn't make xbox's firstparty problem go away. PUBG is a passing fad that is on PC, and will be on PS4 once the bribe money runs out.

    The firstparty problem is ultimately what keeps Xbox X collecting dust on store shelves

      In reply to PeteB:

      98% of console games are multi-platform. 99%+ of gaming time on consoles is done on Multiplatform games. This exclusives argument is just so old.


      If you like lots of pubescent Japanese Anime or the half dozen decent games that are exclusive to PS4 then that is what you should choose.


      If you want the best console for AAA multi-platform console games then the Xbox One X is it.
