Xbox E3 2018 Sale: Games, Consoles and More on Sale

March event

Or people can grab an Xbox One S 1TB bundle for $249.

Microsoft plans to unveil a lineup of Xbox merchandise at this year's E3 through the Xbox Official Gear Shop.

Microsoft's E3 week sale is live now and offers discounts on countless games, accessories, Xbox Game Pass and Live Gold subscriptions as well as $50 off on any Xbox One console. Newegg is also offering the Xbox One X with a $50 Newegg gift card for $489.99 So before buying that Xbox One X at $449, we'd double check Amazon, Walmart and Newegg to make sure they're not undercutting Microsoft, or offering a freebie to sweeten the deal. The Xbox One X, released in late 2017, has enabled Microsoft to market from a meaningful position of strength for the first time since 2013. Add-ons like season passes and DLC will also be on sale, but the post didn't specify which games will feature these reduced prices.

Microsoft will also be discounting the standard Xbox One, bringing the 500GB Xbox One S down to $199. Over 300 titles will be discounted during the sale, including "Battlefield 1", "FIFA 18", "Assassin's Creed Origins", and a lot more. It sounds like this deal is just for new subscribers, though. In the case of Xbox Games Pass, this allows you to try the service before you subscribe, while that Xbox Live Gold discount will unlock a month's worth multiplayer functionality on the cheap.

Microsoft's E3 2018 press conference takes place on Sunday, June 10th at 1:00 PM PT / 4:00 PM ET. Sea of Thieves, Monster Hunter: World, and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds will be getting their first discounts ever during this sale, so if you've been waiting for those to drop in price, now is your chance to pick them up.
