If you still haven't picked up an Xbox One S this holiday season, Microsoft isn't done trying to tempt you into a purchase. Thanks to a new promotion from Microsoft, you can now snag an extra Xbox Wireless Controller when you pick up an Xbox One S (opens in new tab).

For those keeping track, that's a cool $60 savings — if you were planning to buy a second controller anyway, that is. While it's nothing next to the slew of Xbox One deals we saw during Black Friday, it's still a solid freebie if you still have some holiday shopping to do.

Do note that this promo is only set to last through December 10. The good news, however, is that this isn't limited to purchases from the Microsoft Store; participating retailers also include (opens in new tab) Amazon, Target, GameStop, Best Buy, and Walmart.

Are you still planning to pick up an Xbox One S? Let us know in the comments if you'll be snagging this deal!

  • This is certainly great news! 😊
  • Its now unlikely that Xbox one S will be launched this side of the southern Atlantic in 2016.
    Would've been lovely ...
  • Well the only one that says anything about an extra controller is Best buy. Microsoft says they are only doing it thru their store not honoring it thru other retailers.
  • I just bought an XBox one S at our local Walmart.  Does anyone know how I would go about getting the free controller????

  • Unrelated, but I really hope the Scorpio includes an Elite Controller.
