Now Playing: Xbox One S With Three Games, Controller, Stand Discounted - GS News Update

Amazon Prime Day 2018 has officially begun and the deals are coming in fast. For those who have been looking to purchase an Xbox One lately, today might be the day as a particularly good discount is available. On Amazon UK, the Xbox One S 1TB console is available with Sea of Thieves, Forza Horizon 3, Minecraft Explorers Pack, an extra Minecraft themed controller, and a vertical stand for £199.

Ordinarily, that bundle would be available for £400, so you'd be saving yourself a significant amount of money with the deal. It also helps that there's a good selection of games. While Forza Horizon 3 might be an older release, it remains of the best games on the Xbox One and a standout title within the racing game genre. Minecraft is, of course, always popular and continues to be updated with regular content. Finally, Sea of Thieves is the newest release available as part of the bundle, and it's got a lot to offer for those wanting to live the fantasy of a pirate, sailing the seas and gathering treasure.

The vertical stand is an added bonus, as is the Creeper controller, which sports the iconic blocky Minecraft texture and comes in a grassy green color. While not quite the latest version of the Xbox One (that'd be the Xbox One X), this version of the console is still very capable, supporting HDR (you'll need a HDR capable TV) and having a sizeable hard drive. Not a bad deal, all in all. Remember that you'll need to be an Amazon Prime subscribers to make use of the discount.

I try to use Amazon as little as possible - we have many retailers here in the UK that do pay their taxes so I'll normally go to them instead.

This doesn't seem a bad deal though if anyone's specifically looking for a One S, but it does annoy me when they throw in something that no-one has ever bought just to bump up the total value of a deal just so they can say "look how much you're saving!!!" I mean, a stand for the xbox? It's a box - not a push bike. How pointless is that? They've probably only ever sold about 7 so would have loads left lying around in their vast warehouses.

@mpl911: I don't know how well the 1S sits alone, but my PS2 never really felt sturdy on its side. I have a stand for it, feels much less wobbly.
