Alas, the prices seem to be rather stagnant on the latest Xbox One and PS4 consoles but some retailers are including extra goodies with your purchase. If you’ve been putting off buying one of these in hopes of a better deal, here are a few to check out.
These gaming consoles don’t come cheap so a buyer should consider the options carefully. How much are the extras and freebies worth to you? Will you really enjoy the free games? On the other hand, a lower price, a gift card or an extra controller are definitely worth grabbing!
It’s possible that other retailers will try to match these prices during the day on Cyber Monday so check more than one site before making your purchase.
Shop early on Cyber Monday for the best deals. If that means getting on your computer or smartphone at a minute past midnight, just be happy you’re at home and not camped out in a mall parking lot!
PS4 Slim 500GB
There are so far two deals worth considering. $249 will buy you The Uncharted 4 Bundle plus Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and Rise of the Tomb Raider on eBay. The same sum will get you the Uncharted 4 Bundle and a $50 gift card at Walmart. Would you rather have the two games or the $50?
The lowest price so far for this console is $339.99 at Amazon. Most retailers have it for $399.99.
Xbox One S 500GB
Walmart is selling the Special Edition storm gray console with Battlefield 1 for $249. That’s the same price you’d pay for the regular model at practically every other chain. Walmart also has the Xbox One S 500GB bundle with your choice of Battlefield 2 or Minecraft, your choice of one of four Blu-rays and a $20 gift card for $250.
Xbox One S 1TB
Several choices for this console including this build-your-own bundle deal with an extra Xbox One Controller and Gears of War 4 for $324 at Walmart. $349.99 will get you the bundle including Gears of War 4 plus a year of Xbox Live. For $299 you can have your choice of two bundles from the official Microsoft site: the FIFA 17 bundle with an additional game and savings on accessories or the same bundle with Halo 5 and the Master Chief Collection.
Good luck and happy gaming!
