The Xbox One Spring Sale kicks off on March 20 with console bundles starting from $299

Microsoft's Larry Hryb has announced on his official blog that the Spring Sale for Xbox One (opens in new tab) will commence on March 20. There will be many discounts for Xbox One owners to take advantage of, including consoles, games and content from the Xbox Store. If you've yet to pick up an Xbox One console for your household, this month is the time to prepare for such an investment.

The company has worked with participating retailers in the U.S. to knock off $50 from console bundles, including The Division bundle that only went live earlier in March, as well as both the 500GB console Name Your Game bundle and Special Edition Quantum Break. There some choice there for everyone, depending on which games you believe you'll enjoy, as well as what you'll immediately require from the console bundle (Kinect, extra controller and whatnot).

With the console savings kicking off on March 20, Microsoft will unlock the floodgates on March 22 for one week only when you'll be able to check out discounts on Xbox and PC games, movies and even TV shows from the Xbox Store. Up to 60% can be saved on games with a handful surpassing that threshold. Titles included will feature Fallout 4, Halo 5, Far Cry Primal, and more.

What's more is if you happen to be an Xbox Live Gold subscriber, there's an extra 10% to be saved. Be sure to check back at the Spring Sale page (opens in new tab) in a few days time to see what deals are available alongside console bundles from just $299.

  • Awesomeness!
  • Is this only a US thing, or Australia too?
  • Halo 5 won't see a greater discount than the 50% we're seeing this weekend I would assume.
  • Nice! Until you start up the box and find out that Microsoft decide what language you must play your games in....
  • Fyi if they come up with a way to replace the 360/media center solution I'll buy 2 more.
  • For streaming your videos, just use plex. Use one machine to rip/dvr all you want and upload it to a plex server. It's free and works just fine.
  • Problem is lack of good capturing solutions
  • Sounds like he uses media center, so keep a media center computer hooked up with Windows 7 and a capture card(s), dump all the media either onto that machine, or a NAS, and use Plex everywhere to view it. Certainly not a bulletproof solution, but it's probably the best with what's available, especially since you can use very cheap devices instead of relying on Xbox, which 360's have to be failing quite a bit at this point.
  • If only they would announce the DVR function then I'd pick up a second Xbox One.
  • E3
  • Didn't they decide to boycott
  • No VR, clearing the stock. What could this mean..
  • Nothing really/s Posted via the Windows Central App for Android! (Nexus 5x)
  • Seeing how they do this Spring sale every year I doubt it means anything.
  • Perfect! Time to pick my wife up her Xbox One!
  • Every time they do a sale, the retard marketer misuses the "up to XX % off" concept. How stupid can you be. It just sounds stupid. Looks stupid. You cant say up to and then give a range. Also from prior experience, they actually have some games more than the given range off. So dont even talk MS
