Home » News » Microsoft Store UK now hosting ‘the biggest sale’ for the Xbox One

Looks like UK retailers are more than ready for the arrival of the Xbox One S lineup and are already uncluttering their shelves by putting the original Xbox One on the biggest sale recorded yet.

The news is a rejoicing occasion itself before holidays for light pocketed gamers who were waiting for Black Friday to finally lay their hands on Microsoft’s top-rated console. In this sale, gamers are rewarded with a massive discount of up to £200, which includes consoles along with a few games thrown into the mix.

The clearance sale is not like the conventional ‘throwing out old stuff away’ kind of sell out: After the first batch of Xbox One S hit the UK Stores with a hefty price tag, the original version came close to its retreat. The Xbox One console might lack the slim figure, improved gamepad and an Ultra 4K HD Blu-Ray player of the latest model but what better way to light up your loved one’s Christmas with a sealed console covered in a gift wrap — and all under £200.

The bundles start at £180 for the 500GB Xbox One Gears of War: Ultimate Edition Bundle, which includes a full game download of the original Gears of War remastered in 1080p, with similar discounts available at other retailers like Amazon and Tesco. There might be a possibility that other retailers are offering exciting discounts as well prior to the Black Friday sale, so we would advise our readers to keep an eye our and not miss their chance.

Here’s a list of all the retailers offering discounted rates along with our picks of the best deals we’ve seen so far for your convenience.

Xbox One sale Highlights

Here are some of the flashiest deals that are up for grabs right now, but hurry up as there is limited stock left.

Xbox One with Kinect Holiday Value Bundle | £179 @ Tesco
This could mark one of your last chances to get the Kinect on the Xbox One. You’re getting three games for it in this bundle too. We’re more used to seeing this go for around £250. Other retailers have this today but at £200.

500GB Xbox One | Gears of War: UE | Forza Horizon 3 | £179.99 @ Microsoft
Like the deal above, but swapping out Quantum Break for the new-gen remaster Gears of War: Ultimate Edition in addition to Forza Horizon 3. This is another bundle that would have been way over £200 yesterday.

1TB Xbox One | Gears of War 4 | The Division | £199.99 @ Microsoft
1TB hard drives on today’s consoles are incredibly useful as the default 500GB ones are a bit tricky once you have a small collection of games vying for space. The Division is a fun online shooter that should last you a while. That alone would be a strong bundle at this price, so getting Gears of War 4 too makes it an absolute steal!

500GB Xbox One | Forza Horizon 3 | Halo 5 | £179.99 @ Microsoft
In terms of what value this and the similar bundles above include, Halo 5 is probably the game you can pick up the cheapest separately. Still, this is a lot cheaper than anything we saw yesterday.

Limited Edition Blue 1TB Xbox One | Forza 6 | Gears of War 4 | £199.99 @ Argos
£199.99 is a fantastic price for the rare Forza 6 Limited Edition blue Xbox One console, let alone getting it with a copy of Gears of War 4. The 1TB blue console comes with Forza 6 and the console makes an engine revving noise when you turn it on. You’re also getting a blue controller. Out of all the consoles on this page, this one could be worth a tidy sum in a few years thanks to its limited release.

500GB Xbox One | Gears of War: UE | Forza Horizon 3 | £179.99 @ Microsoft
Like the deal above, but swapping out Quantum Break for the new-gen remaster Gears of War: Ultimate Edition in addition to Forza Horizon 3. This is another bundle that would have been way over £200 yesterday.
