Gamers interested in the Xbox One S console can save some money, with the 500GB Xbox One S console retailing for $199.99 United States dollars. Those include Monster Hunter: World, Assassin's Creed Origins, Sea of Thieves, and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. The full discounted games list will be revealed once the sale begins.
