If you're looking for a new Xbox One S, Microsoft has rolled out a pretty solid offer through its own Microsoft Store. For as little as $250, you can get a new console and up to three free games, and it works on pre-orders too.

Using Microsoft's build-your-own-console website, you can put together something that works for you. For example, you could choose the $250 Madden NFL 18 bundle that comes with a console, a copy of that game, and then your choice of two more free games. Among the free game options include Destiny 2, For Honor, Forza Horizon 3, Battlefield 1, Prey, Ghost Recon: Wildlands, Injustice 2, Tekken 7, and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, among others.

As for the second free game, the freebies are limited to a pool of Ubisoft games such as The Division, The Crew 2, Just Dance 2016, Hasbro Family Fun Pack, and Watch Dogs. These might not be the newest, but free is free, and in the case of The Division, Ubisoft continues to support the third-person shooter with meaningful new updates.

Some of the other build-your-own Xbox One S bundles include those systems that come with games like Forza Horizon 3, Battlefield 1, Gears of War 4, Halo Wars 2, and Minecraft, among others. Go to Microsoft's Xbox site to see all the available offers.

Microsoft's new Xbox One X console goes on sale in November. Priced at $500 US, it's the most powerful console in history, surpassing the power of the PS4 Pro.

I'll tell my brother about this for sure. He is on the fence as what to buy since he doesn't have any type of xbox 1. I'm pretty sure he's going to get an S over an X and a deal like this might get him to commit

They are practically giving this away. Wow.

Wow, so that essentially knocks around $150 off the price making the S at $99 an even better looking buy than the X now.

For those that have not gotten an XB1 but want one OR if you have the Standard XB1, You should consider getting the S. I have found almost all my games run better on the S specifically Battlefield 1 and Dying Light. BF1 ran like crap on my standard XB1. Dice may have done an update for all XB1s to run better and I simply didn't know it. But I can tell you with certainty the game runs great on the S.
