For the thriftier gamers out there, a good best practice is to wait until the hype and price hikes affiliated with next-gen video game consoles dies down a bit. Once the inevitable mid-generation consoles emerge on the scene, the prices of original consoles start to drop. Today, you can snag a PlayStation 4 and an Xbox One at much cheaper prices than their original market value.
If you’re still waiting to purchase a PlayStation 4, the 500 GB console is available for $299.99 (versus $359.99). The Bundle comes with Call of Duty: black Ops III and NBA 2K17.
The 500 GB Xbox One is also discounted to $249.99 versus its usual $299.99. You can also choose a full game download for one of the following games: Forza Motorsport 6, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Gears of War: Ultimate Edition or Rare Replay.
Although the Xbox One and Xbox Elite is available, hanging on to your older consoles can prove to be useful. In addition to being able to play classics that aren’t backwards compatible on new consoles, you can use your console as a media storage device for movies and music. If you need some extra storage space for your Xbox 360 to turn it into a convenient multi-media hard drive, then you’ll definitely want to get this Xbox 360 500GB Hard Drive for $70 off normal price.
