Xbox One S 1TB special editions get a last minute Spring sale

Spring is nearly over, giving way to summer. Which means a whole season of gaming, solo or with friends. To prepare gamers for the months ahead, Microsoft is slashing $50 off some of its 1 TB editions of the Xbox One S. But better be quick on your feet, because there's no telling when Microsoft will close the window of opportunity and end the sale.

With the age of 4K UHD resolutions and High Dynamic Range upon us, the two biggest console makers have put out their contenders, at least before the big refresh. Sony has its PS4 Pro and Microsoft is fighting back with the smaller Xbox One S. But while the both camps still debate on who has the better 4K HDR support, the Xbox One S still has one thing over the PS4: backwards compatibility for over 300 Xbox 360 games.

If you were mulling over still getting a new Xbox One, then one of these three Xbox One S special editions might be to your liking. If you're a fan of the Battlefield series, the Xbox One S Battlefield 1 Special Edition Bundle (1TB) and its military green themes console and controllers could be your thing. In addition to the Early Enlister Deluxe Edition of the game, the bundle also packs in the Hellfighter, Red Baron, Lawrence of Arabia packs as well as five Battlepacks.

The Halo series is perhaps the Xbox's most iconic franchise, and Halo Wars brings that to the RTS genre. With the Xbox One S Halo Wars 2 Bundle (1TB), you can enjoy the second installment of this new Halo universe game, with a Definitive Edition and a Season Pass ensuring hours and hours of gameplay.

And then there's Gears of War, another title closely tied to Microsoft's gaming platforms. The Gears of War 4 Bundle (1TB) takes you 25 years into the future of Gears of War 3, right in the shoes of the son of the series' iconic protagonist.

Microsoft hasn't revealed until when the price cuts for the bundles will last. Being part of its Play Anywhere collection, Halo Wars 2 and Gears of War 4 purchases includes downloads for both Xbox One and Windows 10.
