Save 20% on Microsoft’s Xbox One S as part of Amazon Prime Day
Amazon Prime members can currently pick up a 1TB Microsoft Xbox One S with Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass membership for just £200.
The deal – part of Amazon’s annual Prime Day sale – includes a second wireless controller, a one-month subscription to Xbox Game Pass along with a 14-day Xbox Live Gold membership. That bundle would normally set you back £249, making this a tempting offer for those that are after a games console but aren’t picking up the Xbox Series X or Series S when they launch on 10 November.
The One S may not be as powerful as those next-gen offerings but is still a fantastic piece of gaming hardware, offering 4K upscaling on 1080p games along with the ability to stream video in 4K from Prime Video, Netflix and YouTube. It also doubles up as a 4K Blu-ray player for those wanting to enjoy movies in glorious ultra-high definition.
Xbox Live Gold enables you to play multiplayer games online and typically sets you back £6.99/mth or £17.99 for a three-month membership. It also grants you access to between two and four free games every month (decided upon by Microsoft and including backwards compatible Xbox 360 titles) and discounts in the Microsoft store.
The Xbox Game Pass subscription provides access to a library of over 100 games that are available to play for free, including the latest entries into Xbox’s beloved Halo, Gears of War and Forza franchises, plus numerous other AAA titles such as Destiny 2, Doom Eternal and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. A full list of the games available via the Xbox Game Pass can be found here.
In addition to that wonderful array of games, Xbox Game Pass entitles you to up to 20% off selected games and up to 10% off game-related add-ons. Bought separately, the Xbox Games Pass costs £7.99/mth, while the Game Pass Ultimate, which includes Xbox Live Gold membership, is available for £10.99/mth.
With short-term memberships to both services included in the deal, there is no better time to pick up a Microsoft Xbox One S, especially if you missed out on preordering a next-gen system.
The offer is only available to Amazon Prime members and expires at midnight on 14 October. If you’re not already a member you can sign up to a 30-day free trial to get free next-day delivery on millions of items, access to Prime Video, Prime Music and a whole host of other perks.
