Xbox E3 2018 Sale

We're just about a week away from the start of the biggest gaming event of the year, E3 2018, and Microsoft is looking to add to the hype with a huge Xbox sale. Starting Thursday, June 7, Microsot has revealed it will be discounting hundreds of Xbox games, accessories, and consoles, including the first price drop on the power-packed Xbox One X.

The main attraction here is a $50 discount on any Xbox One console, including bundles and the Xbox One X. But fans will also be able to save up to 75 percent on more than 300 games, or snag subscriptions for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass on the cheap. Here's a quick look at what's coming:

An exhaustive list of games that will be on sale isn't available just yet, but Microsoft is highlighting newer titles like Sea of Thieves, Monster Hunter: World, and Assassin's Creed Origins. Full games will start as low as $19.99, and there will be addition savings of at least 50 percent on DLC like season passes and expansions.

And if you've been waiting to get your hands on an Xbox Design Lab controller, they'll be available at a starting price of $69.99.

The full sale will kick off ahead of E3 on June 7 at the Microsoft Store, along with "participating retailers" for the console discounts. In the meantime, get ready for the show by checking out what we're expecting to see at E3 2018.
