The big tech giants also announced a discount on Xbox One S Minecraft bundle and $70 on other bundles including the one with Forza Horizon 4. It doesn’t matter that which system you buy, you’ll also get a free digital copy of Gears of War 4.
Microsoft also announced a deal for the games for the Xbox One, which include 50% discount on different games such as Forza Motorsport 7 and Sea of Thieves, and 35 % off a number of other first-party titles such as PUBG. These deals will be available between November 22nd and November 30th.
It doesn’t come as a surprise for many people that Microsoft would offer the discount Xbox One X’s price in time for the Black Friday sales frenzy, but the thing to be noted is that this device arrived just a year ago. It also illustrates the competitive pressure going into the holiday.
Sony a big rival of Microsoft has priced the PS4 Pro for $400 before discounts, and the Xbox One X is no longer a shiny new system that can command a premium. This discount might be a strategy by Microsoft to reel in buyers who could be focused more on price.
