Microsoft has seen its share of ups and downs since the Xbox One was first released. Although it hit store shelves with a limited selection of titles and a higher price tag than Sony’s PlayStation 4, it has come a long way since that initial debut. Console exclusives such as Halo, Forza, and Gears of War provide both casual and die-hard gamers with experiences they can’t find anywhere else. With recent and upcoming releases such as Battlefield V, Anthem, Fallout 76, and Forza Horizon 4, you’ll want the best possible platform to play them on — and the Xbox One can deliver.
Another thing that sets the Xbox One apart is its fantastic multimedia capabilities. The Xbox One S is, in fact, one of the most affordable 4K media players you can buy. The One S and One X even boast a 4K Blu-ray player — something that Sony’s PS4 Pro curiously lacks. If you want a machine that is as capable of gaming as it is for playing your favorite movies and TV shows in crisp 4K, then Microsoft’s gaming system is the one for you, and to help you out, we’ve sniffed out the best Xbox deals available online right now.
Best Xbox One deals
In 2016, we saw the launch of the Xbox One S — a slimmer, enhanced iteration of Microsoft’s flagship gaming system — and in late 2017 the company launched the beefy Xbox One X console, which can play games in 4K Ultra HD (whereas the One S can only stream videos and play Blu-rays in 4K). These releases, plus some ongoing sales, mean lower prices and hot deals on Microsoft’s Xbox. If you’re looking to upgrade to 4K resolution, or just want a future-proofed gaming system so you can use 4K later, we have rounded up some of the best online Xbox One S deals and Xbox One X deals for you to choose from:

Best Xbox One bundles
In contrast to Nintendo and Sony, Microsoft has done a considerably better job of maintaining a regularly updated variety of different Xbox One offers and special-editions purpose-made for the fanboys out there. The Microsoft Store also often runs deals offering an additional game of your choice when you buy one of these Xbox One bundles, letting you save even more cash and giving you some extra entertainment to enjoy right out of the box. You don’t need to pick these up in-store to get the best possible discounts.
Xbox One ‘NBA 2K19’
The new NBA 2K19 shows why this series remains one of the best sports game franchises around, offering everything we love about this long-running IP. This bundle comes with a copy of the new installment plus a one-month Xbox Game Pass subscription and either a 1TB Xbox One S or One X console.
You can score the Xbox One S NBA 2K19 bundle for $220 from Walmart, while the Xbox One X bundle is on sale for $390 from Walmart or a little cheaper at $386 from Amazon.

Xbox One ‘Anthem’
BioWare’s new co-operative multiplayer shooter, Anthem, has just dropped, and if you’ve been itching to pick it up, this Xbox One S package is for you: You score a copy of Anthem: Legion of Dawn Edition, one month of Xbox Live Gold (necessary for diving into the multiplayer action), and a one-month Xbox Game Pass sub.
This 1TB Xbox One S Anthem bundle is available for $249 from online retailers, but as with the other Microsoft deals on our roundup, you get an extra downloadable copy of Gears of War 4 if you grab it from the Microsoft Store.
Xbox One Metro Saga
If you love post-apocalyptic fiction and haven’t played the Metro series, then you’re in for a treat, and this Xbox One X bundle is the perfect way to dive right in: It comes with the newly released Metro Exodus, but you also get full downloads of Metro 2033 Redux and Metro: Last Light Redux plus a free month of Xbox Game Pass.
The Xbox One X Metro saga bundle can be yours for $449 from Microsoft, Amazon, Walmart, and Newegg, and you get a free download of Gears of War 4 if you buy from the Microsoft Store.
Xbox One ‘Fortnite’
Fortnite should need little introduction considering this free-to-play multiplayer battle royale game has exploded into a global sensation. This 1TB Xbox One S bundle includes Fortnite Battle Royale plus the Legendary Eon cosmetic set and 2,000 V-Bucks (a $20 value), letting you jump right into the intense PvP action right out of the box.
The Xbox One S Fortnite bundle is on sale for $220 from Walmart, $240 from Amazon, or $249 from Microsoft with a free digital copy of Gears of War 4. Like with the other bundles, you also get one month of Xbox Game Pass for free.
Xbox One ‘Battlefield V’
Battlefield 1 was a huge success, and if you’ve been eagerly anticipating the new Battlefield V, then you can now order this package from Microsoft which gives you a full platter of Battlefield action. Battlefield V shifts the focus of the series back to World War II, and along with a Xbox One 1TB console, this offer gives you a Deluxe Edition copy of the latest game. As a neat bonus, you’ll also get a free digital copy of Battlefield 1 (plus DLC) and Battlefield 1943 as well as a one-month Xbox Game Pass subscription and 14 days of Xbox Live Gold.
Battlefield V just dropped last November and you can order this package for $249 from Microsoft or $230 from Amazon, effectively giving you the Deluxe Edition game and other goodies for free (if you order from Microsoft, you also get a bonus digital copy of Gears of War 4). Microsoft has a separate Xbox One X offer available for $449 if you want the newer console.

Xbox One X ‘Fallout 76’
People were excited when Fallout 76 was shown at last year’s E3 event, but when the game was released, it didn’t quite live up to the hype. Nonetheless, if you’ve been waiting to give Bethesda’s latest open-world multiplayer title a spin, then now’s your chance to score a new Xbox One X console and get the game itself for free. The premise of Fallout 76 is definitely interesting, and even if it fell a bit short, this open-world multiplayer first-person shooter (set in West Virginia before the events of the main series) still has plenty of Fallout flavor.
Fallout 76 was also released last November, and you can get this Xbox One X package for $350 from Newegg (cheaper than you’d usually pay for the console by itself) or for $389 from Amazon and Walmart, saving you between $110 and $149. The bundle also gives you one month of Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold.
Xbox One ‘Forza Horizon 4’
Despite a number of successful competitors, the Forza Motorsport franchise remains the king of console racing sims. The Horizon games in particular have proved especially popular thanks to their stunning, sprawling open worlds that give you, the player, a ton of freedom in how you play. Forza Horizon 4 launched in October 2018, and given how awesome Horizon 3 was, it’s no surprise that the new installment lives up to its name.
If you want to buy Forza Horizon 4 and get your hands on an Xbox One, then you’re in luck: You can grab the Xbox One S 1TB console for $240 from Amazon and Walmart, or you can get this bundle plus a free digital copy of Gears of War 4 for $249 from Microsoft. If you want an Xbox One X instead, then B&H has the beefier console bundle — which comes with both Forza Horizon 4 and Forza Motorsport 7 — for $449.

Xbox One Starter Set
If you’re not looking for a specific game, then this package is unique in that it offers you a three-month Xbox Game Pass membership that gives you access to more than 100 titles you can stream from the cloud (similar to Sony’s PS Now service). You also get a three-month Xbox Live Gold subscription so you can jump right into all the multiplayer action and other benefits of a Gold membership right out of the box.
The 1TB Xbox One S has become the new standard model (replacing the 500GB unit), so now is a good time to score a deal on this bundle and take advantage of the extra storage for all of those Xbox Live Gold games. The Xbox One S starter set is available from Microsoft for $249, and you get a free download of Gears of War 4 as a nice little bonus.
Xbox One ‘PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’
Although technically still in beta, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (commonly referred to as PUBG in the Xbox Live community) has become an unexpected smash hit. This highly addictive open-world battle royale-style competitive shooter drops you into an open arena where you must explore, scavenge, and fight to be the last one standing. This $395 bundle from Walmart includes a 1TB Xbox One S, an Xbox One controller, and a full copy of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. You also get a one-month Xbox Live Gold membership so you can enjoy multiplayer action right away, plus a one-month Xbox Game Pass trial as a nice cherry on top.
If, on the other hand, you want to get your PUBG on but just gotta have the 4K capabilities that come with the latest Xbox, then this bundle – ]one of the first we’ve seen for the One X – has you covered. You get a 1TB Xbox One X along with PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, a one-month Xbox Game Pass trial, and one month of Xbox Live Gold, all for $395 from Walmart.
Xbox One X Deals
Xbox One ‘Minecraft’ Creator’s Pack
The Xbox One S is a very capable Minecraft machine, and if you’re looking for a way to play on your couch surrounded by friends and family, this package offers a lot of value for $200 from Newegg. Along with a white Xbox One S 1TB system, you get a full copy of Minecraft, 1,000 Minecoins, and the Minecraft Creator’s and Starter DLC packs (which are full of skins, textures, world themes, community creations, and more). If that $200 Newegg deal has run out, you can still grab this bundle for around $214 from Walmart.
Xbox One ‘Gears of War 4’ Limited Edition
If you’re a die-hard Gears of War fan but the standard white Xbox One S doesn’t quite get your blood pumping, this one will. On top of a copy of Gears of War 4 and a blood-red system with matching controller, the bundle also includes digital access to the entire Xbox 360 catalog of Gears games, which were among the first classics made available for the Xbox One’s backward compatibility.
You also get a huge 2TB hard drive, a nice bonus if you’re the type who finds the older 500GB models too anemic to hold all of your games. Gears fans can now score this bundle for as low as $450 from Amazon. It’s also available for $450 from Jet.
