Microsoft announced a new pre-summer sale on Xbox One S and Xbox One X today, effectively shaving $50 off the normal price of each.
“Whether you’re playing games, watching your favorite shows through entertainment apps like YouTube, Netflix, or streaming gameplay on Xbox Live, the best community of games, the Xbox family of devices has you covered,” Microsoft’s Mike Nelson notes. “Watch 4K Blu-ray movies and stream 4K video on both Xbox One S and Xbox One X with brilliant graphics, HDR technology, premium audio, and experience immersive true 4K gaming on Xbox One X — the world’s most powerful console.”
The sale starts Sunday, May 13 and runs for two weeks. But each console is only on sale for one week each.
The Xbox One S sale runs from May 13 to May 19: All Xbox One S bundles—the Xbox One S PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (1 TB) bundle, Xbox One S Starter Bundle (1 TB), whatever—will be $50 off during that time period.
From May 20 to May 26, the Xbox One X will be on sale, with each customer getting a $50 gift card with their purchase from participating retailers. This gift card is good for game purchases and other content from the Microsoft Store.
