It would appear that if you have yet to purchase a Microsoft Xbox One along with many popular titles so far, this would be the appropriate time to do so. Having started yesterday and lasting up until March 28th next week, you will be able to purchase the Xbox One for a price as low as $299 for the 500 GB version. That is $50 less than its regular retail price while the higher storage version – Tom Clancy’s The Division 1 TB Xbox One Bundle – will be $349.
With the regular bundle, you may pick one of the four titles that come included in the package, and amongst them, you will find a special edition of the Quantum Break bundle.
But visit the Xbox Live website, and you’ll soon come to see that the sale extends to a lot more than just the latest console they have to offer. A great variety of games will be available for prices that are 40 to 60 percent off: up to 150 items on the Xbox Store, including Xbox One titles, Xbox 360 titles (part of which are now backwards compatible with the Xbox One system), a great variety of Windows games that you can even get for free, and a multitude of TV movies that can be as cheap as $8.99.
According to Microsoft, offers may change throughout the week, so you may want to remain subscribed and logged on into xbox.com/spring-sale where you can stay up to date with all the new titles going on sale or upcoming deals. Titles currently on sale include older titles, as well as hits from the past half a year, including Fallout 4, Halo 5, Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Far Cry Primal or Rainbow Six: Siege.
Xbox Live Gold subscribers get an extra benefit on top of the multiplayer functionality. Gold members can get an extra 10 percent off in addition to the current sale benefits, as well as the permanent chance to get various free games every year.
Meanwhile, however, Microsoft seems to have an increased interest in how users feel about selling back their older copies of games. According to various sources, Microsoft has been pushing polls to subscribers and Xbox users to see if they would be interested in a sell-back program that gives you roughly 10% back of what you paid for the game in in-store credit. But given the fact that other stores do it more and do it better – such as Gamestop – Microsoft may just have to pump up some better rewards in order to catch the attention of customers.
