The Xbox One has just received its third price cut in two months ahead of the Xbox One S release which will go on sale for $399.99.
You can now get the Xbox One with 500GB HDD and name your game which allows you to pick one of four games, for $249 / £211.49. The four games you get to pick from are Forza Motorsport 6, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, or Rare Replay which you redeem at xbox.com/name-your-game. The bundle also comes with a controller, other bundles on offer include multiple controllers and different games also at a discounted price.
Microsoft is hoping the new price cut will move units of the console ahead of the newer Xbox One S that launches on the 2nd August 2016. It might make sense to pick up one of the original specs unless your TV supports 4K resolution and HDR. Or if you simply don’t have a lot of space to keep a console it might be worth holding out. Either way, all of the games that will play on Xbox One S will work just as well on these original spec Xbox One machines.
The $249 / £211.49 consoles are available now from retailers worldwide.
