Microsoft discounts Xbox One S and Xbox One X by $50

The Xbox One S and Xbox One X have been on the market for a while now, and there have been a lot of great sales. Today, Microsoft announced that both devices can be purchased for $50 less on the Microsoft Store. The Xbox One S will cost you $249.00 and the Xbox One X will cost you $449.00.

It's unclear if this is a temporary or permanent price drop, but we'll keep you posted as soon as we know more. Despite the $50 discount, Amazon still has better Xbox One S and Xbox One X deals. For example, you can purchase the Xbox One S for roughly $230 and the Xbox One S for roughly $400 from the online giant.

Xbox One S

The Xbox One S is the base Xbox One model which runs all of the games. However, considering that it only features around 1.3 teraflops of computational power, the visuals aren't as impressive as the Xbox One X. Despite this, it's a great entry-level machine.

Xbox One X

The Xbox One X is the most powerful console on the planet right now. It's packed with features and comes with 6 teraflops of computational power, almost 2 teraflops more than the PlayStation 4 Pro! The majority of Xbox One X Enhanced games run at native 4K resolution, and some titles like Forza Motorsport 7 even manage to hit 4K 60 FPS.
