Update: In stock alert! You can buy various bundles of Xbox One at Best Buy from $529.98 to $649.96, with promised of delivery by December 24th.
Looks like Microsoft kept a few “Day One” edition of their 8th Gen Xbox One stashed away on release day because for Cyber Monday, Microsoft Store online is having two Xbox One bundle sales. The discounts aren’t huge but they’re way better than paying full price at GameStop, or the overpriced listings you’ll find at eBay or Craigslist.
The deals went live at 12AM ET. There are two bundles:
Both of these Xbox One Day One bundles comes with the console (duh), 1 year of Xbox Live Gold and the Microsoft Complete extended service plan, which will net you 3 years of coverage for any hardware defect or malfunctions (Remember those disc drive grind issues with some problematic Xbox One? Yep, this will cover it).
Each bundle will let you choose games out of a list of seven:
- Ryse: Son of rome
- Dead Rising 3
- Call of Duty: Ghosts
- Battlefield 4
- Madden NFL 25
- Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag
- Just Dance 2014
The Complete Bundle lets you choose two games whereas the Ultimate Bundle lets you choose three games PLUS an extra Xbox One Wireless Controller.
Savings to be had? $50 on the Complete Bundle and $70 on the Ultimate Bundle. Not a whole lot in the grand scheme of things but if an Xbox One is on your Christmas shopping list, this is a legitimate place to buy.
