A Guide to Xbox E3 2018 Events

Xbox One S Bundles for $249: One of the easiest ways to save money on a new console is by purchasing a bundle with a game you meant to purchase anyway. It seems like the deal has now expired, we hope you got in fast.

In advance of those showcases, Xbox is offering a discount on its Xbox One console range while PlayStation has laid out a schedule of mystery announcements.

"If you've been waiting for the right moment to buy an Xbox - that moment is now". From June 10 through June 23, Microsoft is taking $50 off all Xbox One models, including the Xbox One X, both online and at retailers to $449.

Starting Thursday, July 7, you'll get deep discounts on games, hardware, accessories, and more.

Although subscription numbers aren't available we do know that Xbox Game Pass is now available in over 40 markets across the globe. A listing suggests that the Final Fantasy VII Remake For Xbox One could be happening, and it could spell trouble for Sony if they were to lose the exclusivity of the game.

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.

This massive sale has been officially described as an E3 sale and Microsoft clearly wants to drum up some excitement for their big conference next week.

For those who are curious about Game Pass, you can also nab a one-month subscription for a measly dollar during the sale. If you have NBN (with good speeds) then installing and uninstalling games is an easy, relatively fast process. Gamers will also be able to customize their own controller from over a billion color combinations with Xbox Design Lab controllers, which will start at a new low price of $69.99.
