As E3 2018 inches closer, all the companies are gearing up for the world's biggest gaming event. Later this week, Microsoft will launch its Biggest Xbox Sale of the Year. The massive sales event will feature discounts on Xbox games and accessories, including the consoles themselves. In fact, the highlight of the sale is the deal for the Xbox One X, as this marks the first time that the most powerful console in the world has ever been given a discount.
Microsoft and Xbox announced the Biggest Xbox Sale of the Year earlier today on Xbox Wire. It will be running from June 7th to June 23rd, 2018. This is probably the best time for gamers to grab an Xbox console of their own. The 500GB Xbox One S console will be available for a price of $199 while the 1TB Xbox One S bundles will be going for #249. Those bundles include the Xbox One S PUBG Bundle or the Xbox One S Starter Bundle.
Biggest Xbox Sale of the Year: Xbox One X First Ever Discount
Gamers can grab an Xbox One X for only $449, which is a $50 discount over its normal price of $499. The best way to take advantage of all that power is to purchase Xbox One X-enhanced games like Xbox exclusive Sea of Thieves and Assassin's Creed Origins, some of which will be discounted up to 75 percent.
There will also be a limited-time offer for subscriptions of Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass. The first month will only cost $1 each. The Xbox Game Pass deal is a steal as gamers will instantly gain access to over 100 games and new upcoming Xbox exclusives. Additionally, gamers will be able to save $10 on Xbox Wireless Controllers with many different designs to choose from.
It's interesting how Microsoft announced its Biggest Xbox Sale of the Year shortly after Sony revealed the return of its own humongous Days of Play promotion last week. Sony PlayStation will be offering similar deals on consoles, games, and accessories. This year's Days of Play sale will introduce a Days of Play Limited Edition PS4, which comes with a unique color scheme and design.
