Microsoft is in a mood to celebrate spring. The Xbox Spring Sale began on March 20, and the Redmond tech giant offered a special discount on Xbox One consoles at a $299 price. The sale also gives out a $50 price cut on all Xbox One bundles for a limited time.
According to a published report on the Major Nelson blog, the offer includes the cheapest price for Xbox One consoles, but the price cut timeline is not yet revealed. There will be great deals starting March 22 on PC games, digital Xbox games, and TVs bought from the Xbox Store. The deal will last for a week. You can make a list of choices beforehand from IGN’s top 25 games.
The Xbox One bundles, starting at $299, include the Xbox One Tom Clancy’s The Division Bundle, the upcoming Xbox One Special Edition Quantum Break Bundle and Xbox One 500GB Name your Game Bundle.
Consumers can save up to 40 to 60 percent (approx. 50 percent) off on over 150 items in the Xbox Store, including Fallout 4, Black Ops III, Halo 5, Rainbow 6 Siege, Far Cry Primal, among others. Meanwhile, there will be special discounts on backwards compatibility games, such as, Just Cause 2, Fallout 3, now playable on Xbox One.
For Xbox Live Gold membership holders, you can bag an additional 10 percent on these game deals. Gold card subscribers can play online on the advanced multiplayer network and enjoy up to $700 in free Games with Gold titles every year.
Since the hardware deals are meant for a limited time, consumers should hurry before the deal stops. It should be noted that The Division 1TB Bundle will now be available for an affordable $349 price as part of the deal, Engadget reports.
