New Pre-Christmas Xbox One Deal Gives You a Choice of One Free Game

on

Last week, Sony had its own pre-Christmas deal for the PlayStation 4, selling the console for $399 with the choice of one of four popular games, including NBA 2K15 and LittleBigPlanet 3. As it turns out, that deal was gone in a flash, having apparently been live for one day tops. Fortunately for Xbox One gamers, the deals have just started heating up ahead of Christmas, as Microsoft has its own answer to the myriad third-party retailer deals on the Xbox One we saw on Black Friday and Thanksgiving week.

It appears that Microsoft has launched a deal that allows online shoppers to get one Xbox One title free of charge, on top of the Xbox One console. Orders started at 8 a.m. Eastern Standard Time today, though like almost every other holiday deal, the offer is only good while supplies last. As of this writing, Microsoft hasn’t announced which games would be included in the deal, but look at the tease for the offer suggests that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Destiny, and Grand Theft Auto 5 will be among the available titles. Some have speculated that Microsoft will even let buyers pick any game, though nothing is official until the deal is formally launched later this morning.

What’s interesting about this deal is that there’s a good chance buyers will be getting up to three titles for free, and not just one. During the run-up to Black Friday, we saw Microsoft launching Xbox One bundles, such as the Assassin’s Creed Unity bundle, that already include one or two games bundled in. For example, the Assassin’s Creed Unity bundle includes copies of both Unity and its predecessor, Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag.

Considering that new games cost $59.99 at full price if purchased separately, Microsoft’s new deal has the potential to be a great way to save money. And we haven’t even mentioned that the company is selling the Xbox One at $50 off through the end of the year, which makes the Xbox One without Kinect cost only $349 instead of $399.

So what’s in it exactly for holiday shoppers looking to gift family, friends, or their own selves with a new Xbox One, and then some? It means there’s a very solid chance Microsoft’s deals could result in effective savings of more than $200, as compared to buying the Xbox One outside of the holiday season, and buying one to three games at full price.

However, since a lot of Microsoft’s Xbox One deals feature the so-called “$399 Xbox One” without Kinect 2 sensor, you’ll have to buy the sensor a la carte if you change your mind and decide you want something to help you in motion-intensive games. When sold separately, the Kinect 2 sensor will set you back by $150, though the good thing is that Microsoft is offering a free copy of Dance Central Spotlight to anyone who purchases the peripheral.
