Xbox One on sale (again) for $299!


The Xbox One is on sale once more for $299, a savings of $50 from its retail price of $349.  As many times as the Xbox One has gone on sale at this price point for past couple of months, I am surprised that this isn’t a permanent price cut.

NOTE: Don’t forget to enter our March Giveaway: New Nintendo 3DS XL!

For $299, you get a Xbox One with 500GB of onboard storage, a controller, HDMI cable, wired headset and your choice of games.  The Gears of War bundle comes with Gears of War: Ultimate Edition which includes an HD remake of the GoW and an Xbox 360 version (backwards compatible) of the two other titles.

The 500GB version isn’t the only Xbox One to get a price drop, the 1TB version also has received the $50 price drop.  For example, the Rainbow Siege 1TB version is on sale for $347!

If you are looking for a console, the Xbox One is currently the same price as a Wii U, with a larger library of games.
