Xbox Game Pass turns 1, service really hitting its stride

On top of this Microsoft are also dropping the price of 1TB Xbox One S bundles to $249 and 500GB Xbox One S consoles to $199. It seems like the deal has now expired, we hope you got in fast.

If you haven't bought an Xbox One console yet, this weekend will be a great time to make the jump.

As for games, they say there will be 75 percent off certain games, including discounts on titles like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, Monster Hunter: World, and Sea of Thieves. That includes games you play through Xbox Game Pass.

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. Microsoft's E3 sale kicks off on June 7, so if you're an Xbox adherent, prepare your wallet.

It's nearly redundant at this point to mention the Xbox One's struggle with exclusive games; its library is nowhere near as inviting as the 360's was.

First time Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass subscribers will be able to secure a single month-long subscription of either service for $1. 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. The starter bundle may be your best bet, as Microsoft grants you access to a library of games with Game Pass, including recent exclusives such as Sea of Thieves and State of Decay 2. Microsoft is promising deals on more than 300 games, including Battlefield 1, Federation Internationale de Football Association 18, NBA 2K18, Assassin's Creed Origins, Forza Motorsport 7 and more. You can even nab a standard controller for $10 off the usual price.
