Optus Australia is giving away a 1TB Xbox One with the Lumia 950 and 950 XL

Optus Australia is currently giving away a 1TB Xbox One with every purchase of the Lumia 950 and the Lumia 950 XL. All you need to do is buy either handset from the carrier, which is offering monthly plans starting from AUD60 ($43) for the Lumia 950 and AUD64 ($46) for the 950 XL.

The Xbox One that's included with the handset comes with a 1TB hard drive, and also includes a digital download code for FIFA 16. You even get a one-year subscription to EA Access. As deals go, it doesn't get much better than this.

Best act fast if you're interested, as there are only 91 Xbox One bundles left as of this writing.

  • Wow!!! When in US?
  • I wish, but probably never. We just get a dock...about a month later.
  • Depends on volume I guess. I ordered mine on friday and the tracking number says it arrives Monday here in canada.
  • 950 users don't even get a dock.  US fans are getting screwed big time this time!
  • I think everyone using either phone is being screwed in some way.
  • Ya.... We can see you! How screwed up you are.
  • I'd just buy a Lumia 950 but no one has them in stock here in US. MSFT didn't build enough.
  • Sent you a PM, I  have one extra :-)
  • You are correct, Microsoft no longer manufacture devices in large amount to store like most companies. They make a certain amount then when it's sold out they make more.
  • att.com does. I believe you could buy one and have it unlocked if you want an unlocked version.
  • I'm looking to get the unlocked duel sim model for use on t-mobile. Not interested att version right now but I'm curious, is att version duel sim?
  • U'll need to wait a coupla (long) months...maybe a year, before they'd agree to unlock a brand new phone
  • If you pay it in full, they'll unlock it.
  • they had to as the price of Lumia 950 XL outright in Australia was 1129 AUD -- much more expensive than a Iphone 6s & Australia is a Iphone lover country - no one would have bought Also this deal was brought was a carrier provider (Optus like AT&T) so no point in blaming MICROSOFT
  • Wonder what Telstra will do. I pre ordered my 950XL from Harvey Norman with the free 200GB microSD. Since I am still on contract with Vodafone that deal suited me. I will be leaving Vodafone if they continue to not support WMobile
  • Those clowns at Telstra won't even confirm / deny whether or not they're going to carry the handset.  I have no doubt they will ... then they'll claim they're being generous by throwing in an extra 1GB a month of data ... on top of the 1GB they'll give you to start.  Dismal effort by Telstra :-(
  • Telstra told me "early December"... Which I'm assuming means sometime after the 8th when the MS online store here has it listed as being available from...
  • Here's hoping!  Hopefully they make it worth the lack of feedback / information up to this point too.  Maybe thrown in a Continuum dock, or something.  Harvey Norman throwing in 200GB SD cards, Optus throwing in XBone 1TB's ... Telstra will probably throw in a brochure about how much better their network is, and how you'll need to buy extra data.  Yeah, I know ... I'm bitter ;-)  
  • Haha, spot on! :D
  • What carrier in the U.S. do you think would ever offer anything like this? I can't think of any!
  • Dang! I wish I was in Australia right now!!
  • Not scared of our snakes and other man-eating creatures?
  • I hear the Cane Toads are the scariest, but I would risk that for Xbox One in my 950 XL purchase.
  • Cane toads? It's the Drop Bears you have to be really careful of...
  • Forget the snakes and spiders, Wolf Creek movie was enough.. Lol
  • As a Canadian living in Australia, I am not fond of your snakes, spiders or your invisible micro jelly fish that can kill you with a sting. Living around black bears, grizzly bears, wolves, coyotes, mountain lions, etc. I can handle animals that can kill and eat you..... But little tiny things you can't see coming who can kill you with venom suck. I'd rather see what's coming so I can at least put up a fight.
  • 0_0 Posted via.........deez nutz!!!!!!
  • Drop bears, gotta watch out for drop bears.
  • ^this...
  • Woah. That trumps any black Friday deal I've seen.
  • That's the kind of deal we would like to see, let's say, WORLDWIDE! Greetings from Portugal
  • Nice, it still wouldn't convince me to move to optus. They are the dirt of the telephone industry over here.   But Damn, that deal is good. I preordered from Microsoft, I think they need to up their game.
  • Got mine from ATT, no deals or freebies. Bummer!
  • They are number 2, hardly the dirt! I'm with Telstra as good as they are this deal is a winner. I would swap today if I didn't have so long to go on my contact
  • Yeah nothing wrong with Optus. Definitely not the dirt but second best for network service and very competitive with price.
  • I am just going to Optus after years of abuse by Telstra. I am nearly at the point of preferring using a carrier Pidgeon to them.
  • Has their crappy network improved? I was with them for about 5 months into a two-year contract. I got so many network congestion problems in Wollongong that I got released from my contract. I just had to pay for the phone. This was years ago so it'll be interesting to see if they've improved. I'm with Vodafone on my Lumia 920 and am pretty happy. I preordered the 959 XL at the Microsoft Store opening in Sydney. I have to admit, this Optus deal is pretty good.
  • 950XL I meant to type.
  • mate cancel your order at microsoft store, order it at HN - u get a 200 gb card free, u can sell it for another 250 AUD
  • OMG, I thought the deal in France was good, but this just hits it out of the park!!!! I can't believe they are giving out consoles now that is incredible!!! I hope the people over there snap this up quick time and everyone is Happy, that's one way to get Xbox's in homes for sure!!! And lets hope it will boost sales of the phone and Xbox through word of mouth!!!! Well done to whoever manages to get this deal!!!! Amazing!!!!
  • Ordered mine from Optus today.
  • Congrats Bro!!!! That's the most Epic Deal I think you could have gotten!!!! I would be jealous but I have an Xbox!!!! Not 1TB though!!!! Nice to know some one from the Windows Central Community Benefitted from this!!!! Enjoy your Score Bro!!!! Oh and make sure you get some of the essentials like Halo: Master Chief Collection, Halo 5, Tomb Raider, Forza 6, Gears of War Ultimate Edition (you get the Original Gears of war Quadilogy via Backwards Compatibility) Star Wars Battlefront and look forward to next years Lineup like Gears of War 4, Crackdown, Deus Ex Etc.... Enjoy Bro!!!!
  • Microsoft should be doing this already, in reverse.
  • No, I wouldn't want MS engaging in such desperation tactics just to move a few more Lumias. In case you noticed, no Surface Pro 4 or Surface Book SKUs were discounted for "Black Friday". That's how you do premium, no compromises.
  • Except windows phone is not premium. Premium would let you get a phone working without hours of customer support, work around and hard resets
  • I think you are mistaken for Android.
  • Read the forums about the 950xl.
  • No, he's right on this one. Android hasn't been bad since like 2013 Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Android messes something up in the phone with every update lol
  • Windows Phone/Mobile removes features that are there in prior versions just to add them back later , or not at all Lol Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • ^This
  • Bundles are acceptable promotion.
  • I wish we could have 1/4 of this deal in Canada. Rogers is not even consider to bring Lumina phones.
  • Why don't these offers show up in India..
  • No carrier contracts...
  • I am in Vaya here in AUS, which operates over Optus. I wish the phone didn't cost so much in the first place here. Then I'd actually be able to afford it. The deal is awesome, but the original price of the phone kills it.
  • Can I buy and have it shipped here to the states???
  • The phone wouldn't work because it used the wrong radios (4g, 3g, etc.) for the US
  • Isn't it only Verizon that's not supported because they are a bunch of assholes? The radios in 950 and XL support pretty much every band in the world...
  • Have a look at the specs. Exactly the same radios as the Us aka Unlocked :-)
  • Theoretically... I've just ordered my Dual sim 950XL from the states.. It has the compatible radios for Telstra over here...
  • Fix the title guys lol
  • That is the best deal ever!
  • What the fuck..here in Malaysia we don't hv the 950 yet and the xbox costs almost 500 usd
  • Lol agree... We don't even hv xbox live here
  • I'd prefer a continuum dock and a nice case. Maybe even a QI charger thrown in there too
  • Yeah jumped on this offer. Have been pondering whether or not to get Lumia 950 but with the demise of my Lumia 1020 performance and battery life along with this pretty sweet deal I have made the switch. Will most likely sell the Xbox One thus making it a very very good deal - should I get about $400AUD for the console. $80 minus $10 for bundling with my existing cable broadband = $70.00 monthly for handset, including unlimited calls and texts to Australian numbers, plus 8GB data, 300min international calls - totalling $1680 for 24month! 
  • It won't shop till the ​7 th
  • WTF such a deal!
    I'd like to be there!
    Well, I'm aleady enjoying my 950!
    So nothing to worry ^o^
  • Man I am a sucker for buying a 950 from AT&T. I got nothing except the device.
  • Why would you buy it from AT&T for $600 locked when you could get it from Microsoft unlocked for $550?
  • He said he's a sucker.
  • the Next program is basically a cash loan with no interest and not tied to a contract that enables me to spread the cost of the phone out.  I had the 950Xl ordered from MS, however as soon as all this was goin down, I came into a need for the $600 that I had allocated for the phone (family comes first). I didn't want to wait to build of the cash reserve.  my choice i know, but I am pretty happy with the size of the 950, it fits in pockets alot easier than my 1520 evey thought of doing and the XL isn't that much smaller than the 1520.  If I want to leave AT&T I just pay off the balance of the Next account and im good to go.  Only thing I am worried about is how the updating the OS is going to pan out.  MS says they are pushing the updates, but........ I am peaved about me not getting the physical dock for free.  I do have the Wireless Display adapter and have used Continuum with a bluetooth keyboard and mouse with success. I even printed a Word document to an HP Photosmart printer in my house from the phone.  I will be obtaining a physical dock though, I want the hard wired experience instead plus the extra USB ports to connect and external drive and such...
  • This is an easy answer and I'm not sure why people don't understand this. If you buy it from Microsoft then you have to shell out $550 up front. With AT&T you don't have to do that.   See Richard's more detailed explanation below. He explains my thoughts exactly.
     
  • Wow!!!..
  • Snagged one. So... anyone wanna buy a 1TB Xbone?
  • i wanna sell  mine too
  • Got one for my bro cause he was due an upgrade. So sad I'm not due one for about 9 months :(
  • Carriers in the states are terrible
  • Errr Optus no thankyou
  • why no thank you??
  • Because Optus are still the equal second-class provider in Australia, in terms of both coverage and (lack of) congestion. Telstra are always worth the premium for me and if they had this deal, I would've been all over it. Almost went in on this one.
  • Yep, unfortunately Telstra have us by the short and curly's over here :/
  • I still want a 950/950XL MS Band Combo deal.
  • That's awesome! I wish microsoft had that deal in the US when I got my 950xl! I already have an xb1, but shoot I could be happy with another. XD
  • Dont blame Msoft, its Optus like AT&T here
  • I'm not blaming MS, I just think it would've been awesome if they had this kind of deal seeing as that's where I got my phone. =D
  • Yeah but I'm sure Microsoft still had a big part in this promo.
  • Promo over. Just called the Telco.
  • There were 16 when I first checked about 15 minutes ago, now they're all gone.
  • This is true deal no doubt
  • what? shut up, wish it was for canada too.
  • Well, their gone now, but I got one. I own a Lumia 930 outright and I don't play games, but this deal was too good to resist!
  • I don't play games either, but I use my XBox One as the entertainment hub for my house.  I also have a kinect for voice control.  It allows me to mute ads, switch from Plex to BBC iPlayer, to SBS On Demand to Netflix, to Groove Music all via voice.  Groove music is great becaue I have really nice speakers attached to my home theatre system.     Also, when I purchased my first XBox One, MS gave me two years of XBox Live Gold free, so I get the two free games per month.  Not that I have played any.    
  • @decah. Get a hdmi switch and plug it into the hdmi-pass-through :P.
  • Stock Exhausted. I was one ofthe lucky ones who could order! Yay!
  • Are you kidding me???? Where is the Canadian love??
  • Its not giving by Microsoft... what the use of blaming MS ...
  • They sold out all 300 bundles.  It was an excellent deal.  I managed to get a 950XL bundle.  Totally happy
  • Damn! Now this is a hell of a deal. They really need to bring this deal here to the States.
  • yes they did, I will have to go and cancel my pre order at Harvey Norman though! Anybody wants a Xbox One 1 TB Bundle with FIFA - yell up!
  • on a side note. your name... indianarash... being a Hoosier, im intrigued, as I havn't a rash and I live here.
  • (OFF TOPIC)
    The Lumias 950 & 950 XL (dual or single sim) are now available in Amazon Spain at €599 an €699!
  • Deal is no longer available. That was fast. Posted via Windows Phone Central App
  • Just when I was sympathetic for the lousy exchange rate, or import duty, or whatever it is that makes smartphones (and motorcycles) cost so much in OZ, yaw get the best deal worldwide. :)
  • yes its the best deal ever!!!
  • This kind of deal never comes to Nigeria. I wish I were Australian.
  • In the Philippines too please Microsoft! Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • It's not a Microdoft deal.
  • New phone and free Xbox all in one day thankyou Optus cant wait until it arrives in the mail
  • This should move a few units.
  • Umm. Buy then flash/unlock an option for US people?
  • Yeah, you should be able to unlock. It's a piece of piss to get plan phones unlocked, the company will do it for you, if it doesn't come unlocked off the bat.
  • Have spoken to 5 stores in Melbourne and all know nothing about this.
  • It was on online deal, none of the physical stores aware of this sale/combo.
  • Was an online offer online stores didn't know about it
  • Damn I wish Optus had competing coverage in regional areas. Even with this deal it's not worth it to switch from Telstra if I'm not even gonna be able to use the phone.
  • Very tempted but I'm in Tasmania and our Optus coverage is sketchy at best... Waiting to see if Telstra come up with anything similar on the 8th, otherwise I might just wait for that elusive Surface Phone. If nothing by September next year then I'm jumping ship but hopefully it won't come to that!
  • We never have things like this, I mean never... And we are always the ones who pay more.
  • Damn, this is an awesome deal but I need to switch to Telstra for the regional coverage, might go in there and sweet talk them into a deal using this info though (once the phone is actually available that is).
  • Now that's a promo sale! :D
  • Great... MS should push W10M sales bit more harder. They should give away lumia 640xl/640 with every surface book or surface pro. and also offer price reduction on lumia 950/950xl with every highend windows laptop people buy. so all those people who use surface products would also have a windows phone.
  • That's a great idea!
  • Ordered my 950XL with XBOX. Thanks to WPCentral for the post.
  • Always swore I'd never go back to Optus but this deal was just to good to miss, ordered XL on cheapest plan, and will throw my Vodafone sim in it, hopefully it's the dual sim variant and I'll be golden.
  • i too hope its a dual sim phone!
  • Nice deal but 1. I already have an Xbone, 2. I avoid carrier branded phones like the plague and 3. Optus can't beat Telstra for regional coverage.
  • Optus don't carrier brand their phones!
    I couldn't give a rats about regional coverage :|
  • They don't? I thought all carriers branded their phones. You have Optus, Telstra and Vodafone variants of the 950 for example (in addition to the generic country variant).
  • Only prepaid phones are carrier branded nowadays, plan phones are just the phones. Plan phones aren't even locked over here.
  • When I got the 920 on a Telstra plan it was Telstra branded.
     
  • He said nowadays, the 920 came out a good 3+ years ago Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • the Optus & Vodafone phones are non branded.
  • Hey PalZer0, easy enough to unbrand your phone but I'm with you on the other two points (although a second XB1 for my man cave to replace the PS3 would be alright)! ;)
  • Wow. That's cool. Not a fan of optus, but good stuff.
  • Wow, now that is a deal.
  • Microsoft Xbox One Console Offer: Stock has been exhausted and no longer available with this device.
  • Too bad. Deal is over they say.
  • Got a 950 and 950xl with 2 free xbox 1tb consoles, love the deal!
  • Nice work my man! Enjoy!
  • Time to immigrate to Australia
  • :p
  • the deal is over ;)
  • Deal is off...so quick.
  • NEVER IN INDIA!!!!! :'(
  • In India you get a Continuum! Enjoy!
  • Hah?
  • Not bad but that's a 2 year minimum contract don't forget.
  • Yeah anyways you pay around apprx 45$ on prepaid per month so for another 40$ i.e. 960$ [ Total around 84$ pm] in 2 yrs u get a Lumia 950 XL with XBOX One. No deal is better than this deal.
