Last week, Microsoft unveiled the Xbox One S - an upgraded, and much smaller, version of its console - which will launch at the end of August. As in the United States, only the most expensive version of the One S will be available initially in the UK; the 2TB Launch Edition will cost £349.99, and pre-orders are already open.
But cheaper versions of the new console are on the horizon, including a £249 model with 500GB. And again, just as in the US, that means that prices of the current Xbox One are already falling.
The Microsoft Store is currently offering the 500GB Xbox One with FIFA 16, an additional free game and a £10 gift card, for £199.99 - that's £50 less than its usual price of £249.99 - as part of a "4 day flash sale", ending on June 27.
However, if you're not too fussed about FIFA 16, you can save even more on an Xbox One if you venture beyond the Microsoft Store. Until Sunday, Currys PC World is selling the 500GB Xbox One for £189.99, including one of four free games:
You can choose your free game from the following options:
- Forza 6
- Rise of the Tomb Raider
- Gears of War: Ultimate Edition
- Rare Replay
Of course, not everyone will be tempted to buy an Xbox One, even at these discounted prices, with a new and improved model fast approaching. And some may even be planning to wait until next year to get their hands on Project Scorpio, the new Xbox that Microsoft is already referring to as the "most powerful console ever".
