For gamers looking to finally take the leap to an 8th generation console (or parents looking to fulfill their child’s wish and desire), here’s a weekend list of the best 8th generation console hardware deals for the weekend of September 26th on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Wii U.
These days, the best way to grab a console is via buying a bundle. What this means for the uninitiated, is that a console system will be bundled in with a popular game titl. Normally it’s a recent big release or a standard classic game that most people will purchase anyway after buying the console. For the Xbox One, we have a Halo Master Chief Collection or FIFA 16 bundle; for the PlayStation 4, we have the recent released Destiny: The Taken King bundled in; and finally for the Wii U we have the “classic” Mario Kart 8.
All bundle deals this weekend are new and in-stock, ready for shipping. The Xbox One and Wii U deals are from eBay via reputable powerseller. Best part about buying from eBay is that you’ll earn some eBay cash-backs, good for anything on eBay in the near future.
Without further ado, here are the console bundle deals for this weekend:
Wii U Console 32GB Deluxe Set + Mario Kart 8 — $279.99. MSRP is $300. Shipping is free and tax in CA/GA only.
Xbox One FIFA 16 1TB Bundle + 1 Year EA Access — $359.99. MSRP is $399. Shipping is free and tax in CA/GA only.
Xbox One 1TB Console Halo: Master Chief Collection Bundle — $359.99. MSRP is $400. Shipping is free and tax in NJ/NY only.
Playstation 4 Destiny: The Taken King Bundle — $379.99 after coupon. MSRP is $400. Use coupon VISA5 to get this deal. A VISA credit card will be required during checkout.
November 10: Xbox One Rise of the Tomb Raider 1TB Bundle — $399.00. MSRP is $399.
Check back next week if none of these seems appealing to you. While we’re 2 months away from the holiday season, expect prices to be relatively stable until late October where older bundles gets cleared out.
