The best Xbox One X bundles and deals: where to buy the 4K Xbox

So you’re looking for an Xbox One X bundle? Well the pre-order phase has ended, but there are still plenty of Xbox One deals available despite an initial surge of orders. After a year of waiting, Microsoft finally officially unveiled the Xbox One X at E3 2017. Formerly known as Project Scorpio, this is the full 4K HDR upgrade Xbox One owners have been waiting for.

So where can you buy and Xbox One X? Fear not 4K-hungry gamers, we’ve listed the links below for a reliable collection of UK and US retailers. First up, we’ve given a shout out to stores that still have standalone console stock available to order, followed by a selection of the best-looking Xbox One X bundles with extra games included.

If you’re after information on the Australian deals, head over to our Australian page.

Xbox One X bundles (USA)

Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition | $499.99 @ Amazon
The Project Scorpio version of the Xbox One X console sold out straight away almost back when pre-orders originally opened, but Amazon has managed to get a hold of some extras units for launch day. This day one edition of the console and controller has ‘Project Scorpio’ inscribed on them as a neat nod back to the console’s original name. It doesn’t cost any more than the standard version, so it’s the one we’d go for.

Xbox Box One X bundles (UK)

Xbox One X | Forza 7 | £469.99 @ Microsoft
Forza Motorsport 7 is one of flagship titles for the Xbox One X and this is the best bundle we’ve seen as it essentially gives you the game for a mere £20 extra on top of the solus Xbox One X deals. Simply add the console to your basket then look out for the option to add Forza 7 on the next screen.

Xbox One X | Forza 7 | £469.99 @ Very
If you’d prefer to buy from Very.co.uk, you can get the Forza 7 bundle for the same price as at Microsoft and you also have the option to spread the cost out with a Very account. Another thing to consider here though is that the delivery date is set at November 28, so we presume they’ve sold out of the original November 7 allocation.

Xbox One X | Gears 4 or Halo Wars 2 | £459.99 @ Smyths
An extra tenner for either Gears of War 4 or Halo Wars 2 in this Xbox One X bundle is a modest saving, but a saving nonetheless. You can buy these games for about £15-£20 on their own if you shop around. Of the two, Gears 4 is going to be the looker to really show off the new graphical prowess of the Xbox One X.

Xbox One X | Xbox One Elite controller | £549.98 @ Microsoft
We’re still quite annoyed that Microsoft didn’t include an Elite controller as standard with the Xbox One X given the mammoth asking price, but this is the next best option. You’re getting the customisable controller for £99.99 here instead of £119.99 (you still get a regular pad in the box too). That’s still a lot of money, but it is an absolutely fantastic controller. This offer is viewable once you add the console to your basket.

Xbox One X  | Forza 7 | The Evil Within 2 | Now TV | £497.99 @ Game
A bit more expensive this one but you’re also getting a copy of The Evil Within 2 and a two month Now TV entertainment pass in addition to Forza 7.

Xbox One X | 2 year guarantee | £449.95 @ John Lewis
This Xbox One X deal doesn’t include any games, but it does with a two year guarantee at no extra charge. So if you’re planning on picking up your games separately, then you may as well get the extra cover here as you’ll only get 12 months with most other retailers.

Stay tuned for further updates. And while we think these Xbox One X bundles will sell out soon, you’ll get plenty more chances to grab one before Christmas. Feel free to bookmark this page to check back later when you’re ready to buy.

What is the Xbox One X price?

You might want to sit down for this one. The Xbox One X costs $499 in the US. UK gamers can expect to get their currency converters in a twist again, as you’re paying £449 instead of the direct conversion of around £390. Naturally, these prices don’t include any games, unless a retailer is feeling generous.

Why should I buy an Xbox One X?

Just to be clear, this is not what you’d call a ‘next-gen’ console. Instead it’s a powerful upgrade over the current Xbox One lineup. To simplify things, it’s akin to Sony’s PS4 Pro. Both consoles are aimed at gamers with a 4K HDR TV who want the best graphical performance possible on their favored console. There will be modest performance boosts on non-4K TVs too, but you’re kind of missing the point without a 4K HDR TV.

As things stand the Xbox One X will play all Xbox One games and we’re not expecting to see any games released exclusively for the Xbox One X (or so we’ve been told), so there’s certainly no reason to throw away your Xbox One S yet.

The Xbox One X is the most powerful console ever made though, even outshining some of the specs of the PS4 Pro. But given the huge asking price, you’d hope as much. The Xbox One X is making bold claims about true native 4K gaming though with its upcoming titles and if you have a 4K TV with High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology, the Xbox One X is ready to seriously impress with the likes of Forza Motorsport 7, Metro: Exodus and Anthem set to be true jaw-droppers in the graphics department.

Where can I buy an Xbox One X?

Most of the usual big name retailers are stocking the Xbox One X. Prices this close to launch are all very similar for now, but as we get closer to Black Friday, we’ll start to see stores chipping away at the price to try to get an edge over the competition. 

Keep an eye on the highlighted Xbox One X bundles above and our comparison chart, which we’ll keep up to date on the latest prices for the Xbox One X on its own. So feel free to bookmark us and check in again soon to see if we’ve found the deal that’s right for you. Fingers crossed the bundles get better soon, especially in the US where we’re not seeing massive software discounts so far.

What is the Xbox One X release date?

It’s here now! The Xbox One X came out on November 7 2017. That was a worldwide release date too. It’s a solid time of year to cash in on the Christmas shopping season.

Will there be Xbox One X deals on Black Friday?

Black Friday will be landing just a few short weeks after the Xbox One X’s release date, so we wouldn’t expect many (if any) discounts on the hardware to be honest. At best you might get a game or two thrown in for free or cheaper than buying them separately.

If the Xbox One X is in short supply though, don’t expect retailers to want to discount anything. It’s more likely they’ll add multiple games to a bundle and sell it at full RRP. Don’t believe us? Have you tried to find a decent Nintendo Switch deal lately? If you’re after a massive bargain, we expect Sony to be tearing the price of the PS4 Pro deals to shreds to tempt gamers over to the blue team of 4K gaming.

What if I don’t care about 4K or want to save money?

The standard Xbox One S is a fantastic games console and you’ll easily be able to get one with a few games for probably less than $200/£200 around Black Friday. There are cheap deals all year round on our Xbox One deals and PS4 deals pages too.

Only kidding. I want 4K HDR in my face right now.

4K TVs with HDR are nowhere near as expensive as you’d think. The prices have come down much faster than the original HD TVs, so you can get a decent model for a low price. Hell we’ve seen some nice ones for less than the price of the Xbox One X itself (what a ridiculous world we live in). For the best of the best, take a look at our best TV article. UK gamers, we’ve also rounded up the best cheap 4K TV deals too.

How big is the hard drive in the Xbox One X?

For now, the only option available is the 1TB option, that’s 1000GB of storage. There are no official plans for larger versions, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see these come along in 2018. 

With some 4K-friendly update patches to games coming in at over 100GB, we certainly wouldn’t hold out for a cheaper 500GB Xbox One X, as it’d be a bit pointless to be honest. 

We think gamers are going to fill up the 1TB Xbox One pretty soon. Thankfully the Xbox One X is compatible with external hard drives using USB 3.0. So if you need some extra storage, check out our list of the best external hard drives.
