Xbox One X price dropped to $299 by Microsoft

Now's a great time to snag an Xbox One X since the price has been slashed, if you've got some extra pocket money laying around.


Looking for another way to spend time during quarantine? You could add an Xbox One X to your collection. Sure, we're all getting laid off and we can't go outside. But you could start playing some awesome games like Gears 5 and Sea of Thieves right away, and do it in style – at least before later this year, when Xbox Series X is supposed to debut.

The Xbox One X is now $100 less than it used to be at its $399 price point, and that doesn't just mean you get the system only. Right now on the official Xbox store page you can choose from some really great deals on bundle, meaning you can get a 1 TB Xbox One X system and a game of your choice from Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order to Forza Horizon 4, Gears 5, or NBA 2K20.

It's a good time to go ahead and invest, especially since you can also get the Xbox Game Pass subscription for just $9.99 a month and that gives you access to over 100 games. Now, they're still constantly shifting, but you get tons of titles to mess with while sitting at home in quarantine, and that itself will save you money. And if you just got your stimulus check or are planning to get it, you'll still be left with some cash. 

Be sure to let us know if you decide to pony up for a new system, and we can get a massive game of Sea of Thieves going. We, uh, probably all don't have a lot going on outside of work anymore, anyway.

      With Jedi Fallen Order included that's an outrageously good deal. Plus Game Pass continues to be a great value.

      How far are we from the next gen? I might just wait until that.

        Theoretically about 6 months, this is a "fire deal" for those who didn't jump on board.

          Cool, I'll definitely wait then. I'm so perpetually behind on games that I'm going to end up just skipping the current gen, haha :-\

            Cool thing is the new consoles all look like they'll be mostly, if not 100% backwards compatible, so you just get all the good stuff without performance issues ;p

              Yup, and most likely the digital stuff will carry over too.
              Some games, like Cyberpunk will even upgrade to to next gen if you get the new console.

              Seems like a good time to game!

                I think next gen will be a great time to console game in particular. I go through phases and have been mainly PC for the entire current generation, even though i have a PS4 and switch.

                Guaranteed presence of super fast SSDs is going to be huge, especially on PS5, but the Series X will be no slouch. They’ll be able to do things you can’t do on PC where you can’t guarantee IO speed.

                That’s pretty great, hope that ends up being the case.
