Microsoft is getting rid of as much Xbox One consoles as it can before it releases the newer Xbox One S console in August. To further boost Xbox One sales this week, the Redmond tech giant is throwing in a free wireless controller, a $50 gift card and a free Ubisoft game on select Xbox One bundles.
For only $299, interested takers can grab either the Xbox One 1TB Spring Bundle, the Xbox One 1TB Rainbow Six Siege Bundle and the Xbox One 1TB The Division Bundle. The Xbox One 500GB Gears of War: Ultimate Bundle and the Xbox One 500GB Quantum Break Bundle will set gamers back $279.
Game Rant pointed out that all aforementioned bundles will include a free wireless controller, a $50 gift card and a free Ubisoft game of the consumer’s choice. The Xbox One 4th of July deals options include Watch Dogs, The Crew, Assassin’s Creed Unity, Just Dance 2016 and Just Dance: Disney Party 2.
Microsoft Store is also retailing a refurbished 500GB Xbox One console for $249. Meanwhile, a refurbished 500GB Xbox One console with the Kinect motion sensor costs $299.
Xbox One Still Packs a Punch After Three Years
The Xbox One is almost three years old, but it still has a lot left in the tank. For instance, it’s backwards-compatibility feature is second to none with more than 200 Xbox 360 games in its library.
The first batch of games added to the program this month includes GripShift, Bloodforge and Go! Go! Break Steady. Last month saw the arrival of backwards-compatible games such as Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara, Blood Knights, Joe Danger: Special Edition, Comic Jumper and fan-favorite Fallout: New Vegas.
Xbox One gamers who already own physical copies of compatible Xbox 360 games don’t have to spend to play them. All they need to do is port the old disks on the Xbox One to start a new game. Those who don’t old titles on hand will have to pay to download them from the Xbox One dashboard.
