With the holiday season right around the corner, most retailers are feeling a little bit more generous than usual, cutting prices and offering sweet deals to entice consumers. Microsoft is also among those that have prepared sweet deals for the upcoming period, their latest offering being a free controller for everyone who purchases an Xbox One or One S console.
Upon buying the Xbox One S, users will receive a free wireless controller. The deal includes the top of the line Xbox controller which can be connected wirelessly through Bluetooth to a computer as well. Windows 10 users will be able to use the controller for PC games and enjoy a much higher level of comfort since the new controller was optimized to suite PCs better.
For $300, video game enthusiasts can gain access to a large collection of exclusive games which can be played in 4K. Currently the only console supporting 4k, Microsoft’s Xbox One also offers backwards compatibility with the previous model, the Xbox 360.
This means that players who never got an opportunity to play Xbox 360 titles when that console was considered “current gen” but are now thinking about buying a console can use the backwards compatibility feature and explore the cast Xbox 360 catalog directly from their Xbox One or Xbox One S, which is incredibly convenient. The Xbox One S isn’t just a device used to reminisce on older titles. Players can also try the latest triple A releases like the widely acclaimed Battlefield 1 first person shooter or Gears of War 4, the newest installment in the long running Gears of War franchise.
This deal comes at a fortunate moment for Microsoft consumers, as the improved desktop compatibility of the extra controller can also prove in handy for quickly switching between platforms since recent times have found Microsoft concentrating on bringing a unified platform for gamers where Xbox and Windows 10 content can be easily shared.
