Xbox One has been a huge seller on Black Friday, but those sales are only surpassed by Cyber Monday when prices are slashed even more for the more than just a gaming console. This year, major Xbox One software releases are finally in place to give the machine a proper run at Christmas success, with the exclusivity of Halo 5 and Rise of the Tomb Raider expected to drive strong sales, with or without Black Friday discounting. Microsoft should have a good time this holiday, and many gamers will be looking to score a no-brainer price on Xbox One.
Keeping checking our Cyber Monday section as we’ll continually update it along with Cyber Monday for your shopping convenience. You can also check out Amazon’s Black Cyber Monday deals here as they’ll keep changing as fast as a Kardashian’s Instagram page.
With the Xbox One, you can watch movies, download apps, and enjoy your favorite TV shows all right from your console. There’s also plenty of space available since the basic console can hold up to 500GB of data.
That means you can store your favorite games, movies, and apps without having to worry that you’ll run out of storage space. When it comes to last year’s Xbox One deals, there were several bundles to choose from.
One of the more popular bundles was the Xbox starter bundle. In addition to the console and remote, there was also a selection of free games included with your purchase. Another good deal was the Xbox Halo bundle.
If you’re not familiar with it, Halo is a popular video game series that’s a military science fiction game. It’s a first person shooter game so if you enjoy this type of gameplay, then definitely be on the lookout for more of the Halo bundles this year.
An additional bundle that gamers enjoyed last year was the Assassin’s Creed bundled with the Xbox One console. Buyers were able to grab both the Assassin’s Creed game and Assassin’s Creed Unity for a nicely discounted price and save enough to buy even more games.
One Xbox bundle that you may see this year is the Gears of War: Ultimate Edition game with the Xbox One console. This third person shooter game is both addictive and entertaining.
Another bundle that you may see is the Batman: Arkham Knight game sold with the Xbox One console. In this game, players can battle some of Batman’s toughest foes like Harley Quinn, Penguin, and Two-Face.
Best of all players can actually drive the Batmobile within the game for even more non-stop action fun. During Cyber Monday, some retailers will allow buyers to choose which games they get with their bundle.
This means you could pick up the Xbox One console along with several popular titles for a special sale price. Keep this in mind if you’re shopping for a specific title that you’d like to grab on sale.
Don’t forget that Cyber Monday can mean deep discounts for Xbox One accessories like remote controllers and headsets. Some retailers will even discount the cost of the Xbox Live memberships, which gives you access to free games every month. This is a great way to check out the games before you decide to buy them.
