Microsoft is featuring two weeks of savings on new Xbox One bundles, with both Xbox One S and Xbox One X, to kick off the summer. The Xbox One S sale runs until May 19. Then it’s Xbox One X time from May 20-26.
This week all Xbox One S bundles are $50 off:
- Xbox One S Sea of Thieves Bundle (1 TB) – $249
- Xbox One S PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (1 TB) – $249
- Xbox One S Rocket League Blast-Off Bundle (1 TB) – $249
- Xbox One S Starter Bundle (1 TB) – $249
- Xbox One S Starter Bundle (500 GB) – $229
All the game bundles come with 1 month of Xbox Live Gold. The Starter Bundle doesn’t come with any games. Instead it includes three months of Xbox Live Gold and three months of Xbox Game Pass. Game Pass is a Netflix-like subscription to Microsoft’s digital library of games. Game Pass features over 100 Xbox One and backwards compatible Xbox 360 games, with new added each month.
If you’re looking for a bit more oomph, you’ll want to wait till next week with the Xbox One X sale. This one’s a bit less straightforward. Purchasing an Xbox One X ($499) between May 20 and May 26 will net you a $50 gift card from participating retailers. The specific retailers have not yet been announced.
The biggest games on Xbox One are reflected in the bundles, though PUBG’s incredible popularity in the Battle Royale genre is being supplanted by the free-to-play, Teen-rated Fortnite. One of the most anticipated Xbox exclusive games is State of Decay 2, which launches May 22.
The Xbox One S sale ends May 19. The Xbox One X promo begins May 20 and ends May 26.
