For the first time (I believe), the price of a Xbox One has dropped to below £200. :beer:

You can pick one up the £190.40 at the moment, although there are some better deals (for instance, an extra £40 gets you a copy of The Division and 1TB).

Noticed the price at Console Deals, there's also some decent Playstation 4 deals, a PS4 for £230, or one with an extra controller and Black Ops 3 for £259.

Worth checking out:

    Xbox One has been available under £200 a few times during various promotions & just a few weeks back was available for £220 with FIFA 16 around the bricks & mortar places.
    Retired member - fed up with the general tone of the place.

    I've not actually seen any for less than £200 that weren't refurbished/2nd hand/ jumping through hoops with Amazon France. I did see the £220 deal with Fifa, but that was a 500gb Xbox with a game that's bundled with pretty much anything and won't hold value.

    If you're interested in Elite: Dangerous to the point that you're prepared to spend £250 + Gold subscription costs just as a placeholder, and you're also interested in VR, and you're also interested in a system more powerful than a PS4... why not just set up a gaming PC?

    The new consoles have had an extreme dearth of compelling reasons to buy either of them, as they offer relatively poor graphics quality (neither managing 1080P30 across their catalogues) and near-zero decent exclusives (I count the Master Chef Collection on Xbox and Bloodborne on PS4 so far - both bloody good games, but not £250 good).

    I just knocked this together in about a minute, and it's about twice as fast as a PS4. It's £450, which is less than an Xbone and a PS4.5 combined, surely. ;) Even just comparing with the Xbox One, the £25/year Gold subscription and far, far higher game prices on console will make the PC cheaper in the medium and long run - which is a big part of what MSE is about, looking at the total cost instead of the upfront cost.

    If you can hold out eight more weeks, we'll have a slew of new graphics cards to choose from, allowing you to get far more value for your money. Then just start a thread asking for recommendations for a ~£your-budget-here PC. Let us know what parts you have already, even if it's just an ancient, cobwebbed PC from 1998, as that'll give you a case to start with. :beer:

    (Oh, in case you were wondering, yes: PCs can connect to TVs, and yes: PCs can use pads - or whatever control system you prefer.)
    Q: What kind of discussions aren't allowed?
    A: It goes without saying that this site's about MoneySaving.

    Q: Why are some Board Guides sometimes unpleasant?
    A: We very much hope this isn't the case. But if it is, please make sure you report this, as you would any other forum user's posts, to [email protected].

    hi everyone

    old mother here so please bear with me.....

    My son wants an xbox one ....he has never had an x box or ps console so I don;t know anything about it....


    He wants an xbox one as that is what his friends have and so i know we need to subscribe to xbox live so that he can play online with them...

    We have never gone down the console road before as we he has always played Minecraft and other such games via the Mac and chatted to his mates via skype whilst playing....

    My worry if we buy an xbox one is that in a few months a new upgrade console will come out and all his mates will move over to that.....

    if that happened would he still be able to playonline with them or would he need to have the new upgraded console "the S" ???

    can anyone help me? if I am going to get him an xbox what are the best deals around?

    Hi Art

    If you buy a Xbox, regardless of if you buy the Xbox One, the Xbox One S or the Xbox Elite, you will be able to play online against friends regardless of which console they have. You will also be able to play against people who own PCs too on select games.

    I know I'm plugging it a bit here but I would check out https://www.console-deals.com/xboxone

    If you scroll down you will find lots of deals (some of which include Xbox live subscriptions) and if you scroll even further, you will find lots of information on Xbox and buying guides. Definitely worth checking out.

    Let me know if you have any other questions.

    EA Access is a service where you can access certain games made by EA, 1 is Fifa 16 and 1 of the NHL games is included. More games will get added over time. You also get a certain number of hours on some games eg star Wars battlefront. Only useful if he plays Fifa or NHL I guess.

    get the 1 with the biggest hard drive you can afford. No harm in buying a 500GB 1 but you will need to buy an external hard drive to store the games on.

    what is the xbox one S ?

    Its the new console, its smaller but the black consoles still work. The s is just another Xbox One console (its a latest edition) like Ford cars eg Fiesta, Mondeo etc etc.

    You would have been better off starting a new thread but never mind.

    What ever games he asks do your research, depends if you want him playing violent games or not.

    Get your subscription from cdkeys (can get a 5% discount from the facebook page) and any xbox credit.

    I hope you have a budget in mind ? or a ceiling limit you can afford.
