The Xbox One X discount is one of many though. Here's the breakdown for the sale prices on the various models of Xbox One. Beginning on Thursday, June 7, people can snag discounts on hundreds of games, accessories, Xbox Game Pass, Live Gold subscriptions, and $50 off any Xbox One console. The sale ends on June 23, but it might be a sign that the high-end system may be receiving a permanent price drop soon, especially if the promotion moves a lot of units.
Xbox One X for $449: The most noteworthy item in Microsoft's sale is the Xbox One X. Microsoft - and participating retailers - are taking $50 off and reducing the console's price to $449. Rounding out its hardware deals, Microsoft will also be shaving $10 off Xbox One controllers, so keep an eye out for those deals if you need a spare. Remember, Xbox Game Pass gives you access to all Microsoft Studios games at launch, meaning you can play the full versions of games like State of Decay 2 and Sea of Thieves all month for just a buck.
Microsoft is celebrating E3's arrival with what it's calling "the biggest Xbox sale of the year". For instance, Walmart now has the Xbox One S 1TB Minecraft Edition Bundle for $249. Over 300 games are also being discounted, some of which have Xbox One X enhancements, so you can put those savings towards expanding your collection. In the case of Xbox Games Pass, this allows you to try the service before you subscribe, while that Xbox Live Gold discount will unlock a month's worth multiplayer functionality on the cheap. Seagate, Turtle Beach, and Hyperkin will all offer discounts on officially licensed products as well.
