Xbox One S Minecraft bundle gets discounted to $249 through March 18

If you still have yet to pull the trigger on an Xbox One S, Microsoft's latest offer should look pretty tempting. Right now, you can grab an Xbox One S Minecraft bundle for $249 (opens in new tab) through the Microsoft Store and retailers like Walmart, Target, Amazon and other retailers. That's a full $50 off its regular price.

The bundle usually goes for $299, so that's a pretty solid deal. In addition to Microsoft's latest Xbox console, the bundle also throws in Minecraft for Xbox One and Windows 10, along with the 13 content packs like the Halo Mash-up and Festive Mash-Up packs.

The best price we've seen on this bundle was a $229 one-day sale in December, but this is probably the best price you'll see on the bundle until the holidays roll around again. If you're interested, you can pick up this bundle from the Microsoft Store and Microsoft retail partners like Amazon, Target, GameStop, Best Buy, and Just be aware that this price cut is only set to last through March 18.

  • Tempting but the Scorpio is only a few months out. But I do wish I knew how much it was going to cost. It can't possibly be more than $500. 400 would be The Sweet Spot but I'm guessing somewhere in between $400 and $500. Anything more would be a little risky.
  • It could happen, the original ps3 price tag was 599$ on Launch.
  • And it didn't sell very well at that price. Once Sony came to their senses and lowered the price, it began to sell quite well
  • That is a really cheap console.
  • I swear I saw this same console bundle for 199 recently. Think it was Newegg thru eBay. Could be wrong though.
  • I bought the Xbox One 1 terabyte 🎮 Fifa 17 bundle this weekend. I am very satisfied with it! I really just wanted Forza Horizon 3 so I bought that from the digital Windows Store. Fantastic car racing game! I know Scorpio is upcoming, but I usually (with some exceptions) do not buy new things immediately at launch anyway. The Forza game series was the sole reason I bought Xbox. Previously I have been nothing but a Playstation (and SEGA) fan. I have owned original PS, and still own a PS2 and a PS3. The PS4 did not interest me, and by owning a Lumia 1020 for a couple of years, I felt Xbox was the natural choice of console.
